Uncanny Collateral

I’m pleased to announce Uncanny Collateral, the first book in my new urban fantasy series.

This is an idea I've been throwing around since my brief stint at a collection agency. It's based in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio near where I was born and raised. I wanted to evoke that rust-belt, blue collar feel with a main character who just has a job to do. The book is much shorter than my normal epic fantasy novels—a fast, relentless read that’s meant to be devoured in a sitting or two. Here’s the blurb:

Alek Fitz is a reaper, a collection agent who works for the supernatural elements of the world, tracking down debtors and solving problems for clients as diverse as the Lords of Hell, vampires, Haitian loa, and goblins. He’s even worked for the Tooth Fairy on occasion. Based out of Cleveland, Ohio, Alek is the best in the game. As a literal slave to his job, he doesn’t have a choice.

When Death comes looking for someone to track down a thief, Alek is flung into a mess of vengeful undead, supernatural bureaucracy, and a fledgling imp war. As the consequences of failure become dire, he has few leads, and the clock is ticking. Only with the help of his friend Maggie—an ancient djinn with a complex past—can he hope to recover the stolen property, save the world, and just maybe wring a favor out of the Great Constant himself.

It’s a hell of a job, but somebody’s got to do it . . .

Release date is April 2nd. Pre-order below!
