I’ll be giving away e-book copies of both Restless Spirits and Dominion of the Damned, so if you’ve yet to read either of those this might be your chance to check them out (and if you have read them, they also make great Christmas gifts, wink wink).

The event runs on Facebook at this link from 5:00 PM to 8:30 PM (all times Central). I’ll be taking over and running my giveaways from 5:30 to 6:00.

Hope to see you there!

And the Winners Are…

Last night I participated in my first Facebook book launch event to celebrate my friend Hannah Gray Gordon’s new book, Vu: The Gathering. It was a lot of fun, and if you were there, you got to enter to win one of two electronic copies each of my novel, Dominion of the Damned, and my new novellette, Weather Witch. If you weren’t there, well, you won’t make that mistake again now, will you?

Anyway, on to the winners!

Congratulations to all the winners, and to everyone who won something during last night’s event (myself included — I won a copy of The Esoteric Design by A. R. Crebs and I can’t wait to get to it)!

Dominion now available in paperback PLUS a new e-book!

Hey guys! Dominion of the Damned version 2.0 is now available in trade paperback! Currently you can get it directly from Createspace or order it from Amazon. Coming soon to and other places actual paper books are sold. Eventually I’ll add info here on the site on how to get a signed copy, but if you’d like one in the meantime, e-mail me and we’ll get it worked out.

Here it is in the real world! It’s so pretty . . .


Look what came in the mail today! Soon… #bookstagram

And that’s not all! You also get the pocket fisherman I also just released a new e-book! Weather Witch is actually the Cellar Witch story regular blog readers may recall me working on a while back (and that Patreon supporters already got to read months ago — and received a free copy of the e-book version). It’s currently available exclusively for Kindle readers and is free to borrow for Kindle Unlimited and Prime members. Only $1.99 to buy.

Finally, be sure to join me tomorrow (that’s Wednesday, June 15th) at 5PM CST on Facebook for my Author Takeover event! I’ll be giving away e-copies of both Weather Witch and Dominion and also handing out special discount codes for the paperback version of Dominion. The other authors will also be doing fun giveaways, so don’t miss it!


Facebook Author Takeover, and Novel Progress

FB-Author-TakeoverHey guys, I’m participating in my very first Facebook author event! My friend Hannah Gray Gordon is celebrating the release of her latest novel, The Vu: Gathering (which, by the by, I edited, and I don’t mind telling you that it was one of the most fun and pleasurable book editing experiences I’ve had to date), and she decided to share the spotlight by inviting me and a couple of other fantasy authors to take over the event page for an hour or so each. There will be fun and games and giveaways and prizes. Click here to see the full line-up and when each author is scheduled to take over, or just go to the Facebook event page and click on “Going” to sign up!

(Ignore the part about finding tickets. There are no tickets. It’s Facebook.)

I’m not sure what the other gals are planning, but I’ll be giving away some free e-copies of Dominion AND ALSO if there is time to prepare it I will be giving away copies of another thing that is a surprise. I may also debut a book trailer for Dominion, because I need to practice making book trailers, but that might be getting a might ambitious. At any rate, I would be overjoyed and also filled with gratitude if you would show up at 5 PM CST and keep me company while I hang out there for my allotted hour so I’m not just shouting and trying to give things to a bunch of crickets.


In WIP news, guess what! No, I’m not done. That would’ve been the main headline if that were so. But I’m getting close! Today I started the LAST scene of Act 2, which launches the events leading up to the book’s main climax. And as I suspected it would, the writing is going faster the closer I get to the end. Funny how they tend to snowball that way. Hopefully the next time you see a post here it will be to tell you it’s finished — or at least as finished as a first draft can be.
