Blade in the Snow - now available on Amazon Kindles

I gave you guys a little preview in the Member Writings, but since publishing on kindle is free and they said I could upload a cover at my leisure (the commission is in the works), I figure I'll just drop this off for your viewing pleasure :)

Blade in the Snow

Shun Miyamoto is the prodigal son of one of the Emperor's staunchest supporters on modernizing Japan as the Bakumatsu Era draws a close. As both a scholar and a warrior, the young man believes that the key to Japan's success is through cooperation with the Western world: a notion that made him a target for assassination. But instead of killing Shun, the assassin fell in love with him, abandoning her duty as a killer to become the honorary daughter-in-law of the Miyamoto house. But in order for the two of them to be wed, Shun must subjugate her former clan: the fearsome "Black Sun" whose ranks can only be described as superhuman. Not only that, but Shun must also contend with the infamous Oliver "Loverman" Lacey, a vicious gunslinging outlaw from America, who shares a common history with the young Miyamoto: both of them have the same kiss-shaped scar branded on their body...

Combining romance, action, samurai fiction, westerns, and fantasy, "Blade in the Snow" promises to excite, intrigue, and plunge the reader into a world where the old ways of swordfights and magic transition into the world of guns and science, as well as a young couple's quest to find happiness even when circumstances try to tear them apart.

The cover for the story is currently in the processed of being commissioned. Once it is complete I will put it on that page, but since Amazon said I could upload it at my leisure, I figured I could upload it now and worry about that later. I still need to find a good placeholder image, though...

The cover is now complete, and the story itself has been revised considerably after a reviewer called to attention several errors that I missed during the initial drafting. Expect a link to the physical version very soon!
