Back to the Beginning of the End…

In case you missed it, I participated in my very first Facebook Live video earlier this week to announce the much-awaited collected At Calendar’s End: Omnibus. You’re very lucky you didn’t hear the squeal when I actually saw the book for myself.

TL; DW:
– It’s available currently through Amazon and Kindle.
– It’s 700 pages worth of story, collecting the serial installments of At Calendar’s End
– Both versions still include all 12 covers by Brian Ritson from the original installments, PLUS the new art for the Omnibus itself
– The first opportunity to see these in person (and get them signed) is Leon & Lulu on October 22.

ALSO: A short story of mine has been included in an anthology edited and organized by Samie Sands. Black Mass is the story of a man who has a recurring nightmare he can’t escape from… and why it might be better to just remain in the dream. You can find it hidden among the other creepy tales in Night Mares, available now on Amazon and Kindle.

Oh! The places we’ll go…

We are just over a week away from NerdCon in Portland, MI. If you haven’t had an opportunity to check out NerdCon and all of it’s wonderful offerings, please do so.

In the meantime, I felt like now is a proper time to remind you of all the other wonderful events that I will take part in for the rest of the year. You can also find all of this information at any time on my Events page.

I am also working on a potential three events that are not listed yet. They’ll likely popup sometime in the last quarter (October – December) and I’m very excited to tell you about them… but I’m not going to until they are official.

I know, the anticipation is overwhelming.

Ladies and Gentlemen…

Get your costumes in order, put out your jack o’lanterns, and get yourself settled in.

It’s going to be a dark and stormy night around here. The best time to settle in with a supernatural tale.

For those of you who have pre-ordered, you should already have it in your Kindle library. For those who didn’t, it’s far too late.

Fortunately, House of Thirteen is available in paperback and ebook right now.

Order now.

Enjoy – and Happy Halloween!

One week away…

It’s been awhile since I’ve done an event. I have to say, I’ve missed them. They are a lot of fun, on both sides of the table. I love talking to people who stop by the table, whether they want to talk about my books, the magic of idea crafting, or the art of writing itself. I also really enjoy my boothmates. An event is really only as much fun as the people you surround yourself with and this time around, I’m pulling out all the stops.

September 13, in the Kerrytown district of Ann Arbor is the 13th annual Kerrytown Bookfest. Not only will I be there, but I will have books, and merchandise, and ye olde Bad Drawings sketch pad. I’ll also be sharing my space with fellow author J. Thomas-Like, who will also be offering her wonderful words to the masses. And right next door, I’m proud to say we’ll be neighboring with Kate of ChicalooKate – it promises to be some awesome fun YOU should be a part of!

I don’t want to ruin all the surprises, but I will say that this is the first time you will be able to purchase Empty Hallways and House of Thirteen notebooks and magnets!

Notebooks!

Glorious notebooks for all your writing wonder!

So happy about this post, I forgot a title…

House of Thirteen

House of Thirteen, coming very very soon.

House of Thirteen is in the hands of the beta readers. This is both a milestone of success and a stomach of butterflies for me.

Getting this book to a point of release this book has been harrowing, arduous, and – at times – almost not worth the effort. But here it is, and I am very (terrified) excited to see what the beta readers have to say about it.

Depending on how much work they think I still have, I may be able to push up my release date – which would be a first, really. 😉

But right now, I can say with confidence that House of Thirteen will be out in the universe by Halloween. What happens to it then is anyone’s guess.

There is no way to fully communicate the sensations I am feeling about this. It is my second novel, and the start of a monumental adventure in itself. It is exactly what I set out to write when I started, yet nothing I expected and so much more than I could have hoped for.

I hope it will live up to expectations, because it has already exceeded my own.
