The Mercenary is my first release with Samhain Publishing – and my first solo release at that! It’s a post-apocalyptic action/adventure, with steampunk elements, and a core of GLBT romance. It’s probably a given, but I greatly enjoyed frolicking in this story’s sandbox. I was able to indulge in my passion for apocalyptic settings, steampunkish details, long-haired men and conflicted relationships – what with jealousy, stubborness, hot-headedness and of course mortal peril! I have a few more story outlines set in the Mercenary’s world – looks like I’m not ready to let go just yet!
To celebrate, I’m holding a little contest at my livejournal, offering the chance to win a free copy. The winner will be announced on monday. All you have to do to be entered in the draft is leave a comment at my blog post telling me what kind of character you’d want to be in a post-apocalyptic world.
Me, I’d be an odd, geeky bookman who’s in charge of some last, great library that somehow escaped the catastrophe. And I’d have an army of little rat-men to help me manage the place. What about you?
