I’ve got a couple of new, well, new-ish, things to tell you about: The Naga’s Treasure First, the really new thing, because I just finished it, is a new edition of one of my earliest books, The Naga’s Treasure. I’ve been a little surprised at how well this book continues to do. This was one of those books (and there have been more since) that just took root in my head and emerged in long sessions at the keyboard over the course of a few weeks.
I recently realized that I’ve used a certain setting in three of my books, and yet I’ve never written a post about it. The place is the Terrace of Elephants in Angkor Thom, the huge royal city complex near Angkor Wat in Cambodia. It appears, however briefly and in different time periods, in Journey to Angkor, The Naga’s Treasure and my latest work in progress, “Letting Go”.

I’m back at work on my contemporary younger/older, Thai/American D/s story, in what I think are my final changes. I think I may have it ready for a release before Christmas. I’ve been through a few titles for this book - “Deconstructing David” and “Claiming David” among them - but I think I’ve settled on Holding On. It’s not very distinctive, but it’s simple and I think it adequately captures one of the key themes of the story.
All three of my books are now available from Amazon (US, UK and Germany). They’re only available in Kindle format, of course, but if you purchase from Amazon, then the books are delivered seamlessly to your Kindle reader(s), which I find very convenient. The books, with links to the Amazon pages, are shown in the box below. Amazon.com Widgets
The Naga’s Treasure has now been published at Smashwords. The book is an erotic fantasy set in the twelfth century Khmer empire of Angkor, telling the story of an unusual way that one of the kings of Angkor serves the guardian spirit that protects the ancient kingdom. As a special introductory offer, you can buy The Naga’s Treasure from Smashwords for just $0.99 until the end of August 2011. The book is also available from Goodreads.
My next book, The Naga’s Treasure, is almost ready for release. I have to make one last edit and also create a cover that I’m happy with. The Naga’s Treasure is a bit of a departure from my two “Journey” books. For starters, the new book is fantasy, based on the idea that the old myths and legends of ancient Angkor are true. Specifically, the book was inspired by the following tale related by the Chinese emissary to Angkor, Zhou Daguan:
