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. If you'd like to get monthly updates on new releases, as well as preview chapters and free short stories, join my newsletter!

Besieged Winner!

Rowena Cory Daniells guest post about female villians definitely stirred up quite a debate! Rowena has selected a winner from all the responses and will be sending a free copy of Besieged to Mr. Cavin! I believe that this is a situation in which internet hipsters may celebrate by typing "w00t!" So, w00t!

Yesterday, I emailed Witchbreaker to Solaris! My brain is now officially mush!

While I'm waiting for my brain cells to recover enough for me to form fully devoloped thoughts again, here are some links for your amusement.

First, there was a feature article about me in my local paper almost a month ago that finally went live on their website. You can read the article here.

That same issue also saw a review of Hush, which is now online here.

And, speaking of Hush reviews, here's one at the Falcata Times and another at the Fantastical Librarian.

Finally, my wife Cheryl gets her time in the spotlight at Dark Cargo, where she gets reviewed on the ups and downs of being married to an author.
