Welcome to my worlds!

I'm James Maxey, author of fantasy and science fiction. My novels include the science fantasy Bitterwood Saga (4 books) the Dragon Apocalypse Saga (4 books), numerous superhero novels including Nobody Gets the Girl and the Lawless series, the steampunk Oz sequel Bad Wizard, and my short story collections, There is No Wheel and Jagged Gate. This website is focused exclusively on writing. At my second blog, Jawbone of an Ass, I ramble through any random topic that springs to mind, occasionally touching on religion and politics and other subjects polite people are sensible enough not to discuss in public.

Buy, Baby, Buy!

Burn Baby Burn is now available on Kindle! Nook users, don't despair, the book has been uploaded to Barnes and Noble as well, and should go live in the next day or so.

Burn Baby Burn is my first real "indy" novel. While I'm still pursing a traditional publishing path for my fantasy novels, BBB is the first of what I hope will be a long run of fast paced, funny, and unapologetically geeky superhero novels that I'll be self-publishing as ebooks.

Burn Baby Burn is the product of long, long years of daydreaming. Perhaps something is wrong with my moral core, but for all my life any time I've walked into a bank, I've looked around and thought, "Man. This place would be so easy to rob if I had superpowers!" In this book, I bring my most felonious fantasies to life in a superpowered crime spree that threatens to end civilization as we know it. Of course, since it's a supervillain novel, you can count on superheroes showing up to try to save the day. The book is chock full of superhuman slugfests, mixed together with musings on life and death, hatred and love, and what kind of wisdom chimpanzees could offer if they wrote books. At the core of it all is a romance for the ages. I promise you will not be disappointed. A bargain at $4.99. You know you want it!
