A Matter of Blood
In a city where debts are paid in blood, it takes more than courage to survive.
All his life, Jake Amarel's talent for mechanical invention has been overshadowed by his family's ability to control matter with their minds. After an argument with his father compels him to leave for the capital, Jake's dream of becoming an inventor is finally within reach. But as he's swept along on a whirlwind of high living and technological marvels, Jake unwittingly enters the city's darker side, where the slightest misstep could put more than his own life in peril.
Nathan Amarel has the peaceful life he always wanted—working the land on his family's estate far from the evils they left behind in the capital. But when Jake leaves for the city, Nathan must decide how far he is willing to go to protect the brother he loves.
A Matter of Blood is an allegorical steampunk adventure that explores family bonds, sacrificial love, and redemption.

There's something uniquely rewarding about being part of something bigger than yourself. I loved contributing to these anthologies, and it's something I'd very much like to do again in the future.
Rebirth: Havok Season One
Havok Publishing has a special place in my heart, and to be part of their first anthology, Rebirth, was an experience I will cherish forever. Five genres, six themes, forty-eight stories, all less than a thousand words and all celebrating the idea of starting anew.
