“Leave My Ashes on Blackheart Mountain” is the first in a planned 6-book series taking place around two centuries after the collapse of civilization. Society has crumbled but mostly exists similarly to that of the old west, the 1800’s to early 1900’s. The six-book arc spans multiple decades and follows the main character Rancid Mahoney, a gun-for-hire, during the various stages of his life. “Leave My Ashes on Blackheart Mountain” was published last year, and the follow up, “Legend of the Horizon Vengeance” is due out November 29th, 2021. “Mercy”, the chronological Book 3, is a novella, and is already available as originally it was intended as a standalone story. “Blackheart Mountain” and “Horizon Vengeance” take place roughly twenty years before “Mercy”.
