Got a couple of deals to kick off your holiday shopping season.

Honor Among Thieves and Jake Hawking & the Bounty Hunters will both be on sale for the entire week of Cyber Monday.

Jake Hawking & the Bounty Hunters

Jake Hawking & the Bounty Hunters cover

Jake Hawking — pirate, rogue, and scourge of the Spanish Main — is known for his quick blade and cunning wit. It’s earned him some friends in the Caribbean, but it’s also earned him his fair share of enemies. The governor of Havana has hired three of the most dangerous bounty hunters in the West Indies to track and capture Hawking and his crew. It’s not an unusual predicament for a pirate to find himself — hunted to the end of his days — but if the Spanish governor manages to persuade the lot to fly under a single banner, it could make life a little more interesting than Hawking wishes.

With the giant ex-slave Little Queen and the rest of Hawking’s crew aboard the snow-brig Broad-Wing, they’ll need every ounce of wit, sail, and steel if they’re to survive and out duel the bounty hunters.

In this Jake Hawking & the Bounty Hunters collection are the first three Jake Hawking short adventures plus a foreword by J.M. Aucoin, the original single story artwork, and four bonus pirate stories and swashbuckling poems.

Honor Among Thieves

Honor Among Thieves book cover

France, March 1609. The French Wars of Religion are over, but forces still conspire against the crown…

Darion Delerue, former soldier turned highwayman, has only two things of value—the hope in his heart and the steel at his side. After a heist on a royal ambassador goes wrong, Darion is thrown into a political plot to undermine the crown, pitting his old life as an honorable soldier against his new life as a highwayman. His actions could send France back into civil war.

Honor Among Thieves is a gripping tale of daring sword-play and political intrigue, with superb historical detail of 17th Century France that’ll have readers ready to draw their swords and fight for glory!


Honor Among Thieves will be going through a Kindle Countdown deal from November 29 through December 6. The Kindle edition will start off at $0.99 and increment up to the full $4.99 price by the end of the run. Jake Hawking & the Bounty Hunters will be just $0.99 for the entire week.
