It’s October, and that means cool weather, early dark, fun-size candy, ghosts, ghoulies and long-legged beasties—and my Days of the Dead Blog tour!
I write about ghosts, necromancers and haunted places, so it only makes sense for me to do a blog tour in the week when you get All Hallows Eve, Samhain, Dia de los Muertos AND Halloween together!
So this year, we’ve got all kinds of goodies….coming attractions on new series, a few teasers about the upcoming Warhammer original novel, a sneak peek at Vengeance (sequel to Scourge), and news about the new Deadly Curiosities novel and new Iron & Blood novel planned for 2018!
And of course, the links to fun excerpts of my stuff and some of my friends’ books because what’s Halloween without Trick-or-Treat goodies!
Watch for blog posts this year on these wonderful sites: I Smell Sheep, Risingshadow, BeautyInRuins, SciFi Chick, The Qwillery, Magical Words, Cecilia Dominic Blog, Barnes & Noble Mind Meld.
Have you read the newest stuff!
Grab Bump in the Night fast—it’s a limited-edition book bundle that’ll be gone faster than your Halloween candy! Nine full-length spooky novels for $2.99! And it’s a great way to get my Trifles and Folly collection of 10 Deadly Curiosities short stories for a great price!
Haven Harbor Halloween—Four novellas, only .99 for a limited time. They all have connections to Jeanne Adams Haven Harbor universe, which features mysteries in a town settled by the descendants of witches who fled Salem to avoid the Trials back in the day. My story is Keepsakes, a Deadly Curiosities novella where a string of bizarre murders—all linked to stolen cursed items—have Cassidy, Teag and Sorren trying to stay one jump ahead of a killer.
Spells, Salt and Steel: A New Templars Novella. This is the first in a series co-written with Larry N. Martin and set tangentially in John Hartness’s Bubba The Monster Hunter universe. It’s comedic horror starring Mark Wojcik, mechanic and monster hunter, in the wilds of Northwestern Pennsylvania. Here’s the first line: “When all else fails, the ass end of a carp makes a damn fine weapon.”
The Hunt: A Storm and Fury Novella. Department of Supernatural Investigation agents Mitch Storm and Jacob Drangosavich are back for more Steampunk adventures. People have vanished and part of the Adirondack Forest is missing. Are aliens or airships to blame?
Unraveled: A Deadly Curiosities Novella. Charleston’s restless spirits turn dangerous as a ghostly serial killer returns for a new murder spree. Cassidy, Teag and Sorren must outwit an undead entity that kills for thrills and find what tethers his spirit to the city to stop the bloodshed before Teag becomes the next victim.
