ebookA war four-thousand years in the making.

In the mists of time, Lilith sealed her immortal lover away. Awakened, Samael has only one plan: revenge.

Linked to Samael and caught in the middle, Katelina watched as Lilith took both her best friend Sarah and a child vampire hostage. Now, it’s up to her and Jorick to get them back. Joined by a group more foe than friend, they search for the ancient vampiress, never dreaming the fight will come to them.

A horrific attack leaves Katelina’s hometown in ruins. Sightings say Sarah may have escaped, but with her mother in a coma, should Katelina go? Or should she stay? Will more destruction follow when Samael catches Lilith’s scent?

The final installment of the Amaranthine series raises the stakes. No longer the cringing, terrified woman she was, Katelina will have to step up or lose everything she’s ever cared about.

The Great Synopsis Debate

gon-reveal-comingIt’s time once again to write the dreaded synopsis for the newest book (bah!) So I’ve taken a whack at it and here are the two version (There’s a difference of a sentence)

#1)

A war four-thousand years in the making.

In the mists of time, Lilith sealed her immortal lover away. Awakened, Samael has only one plan: revenge.

Linked to Samael and caught in the middle, Katelina watched as Lilith took both her best friend Sarah and a child vampire hostage. Now, it’s up to her and Jorick to get them back. Joined by a group more foe than friend, they search for the ancient vampiress, never dreaming the fight will come to them.

Unleashing horrific attacks, Lilith leaves Katelina’s hometown in ruins and her mother in a coma. Sightings indicate that Sarah may have escaped, but where is she? Should Katelina leave her mother’s side to search for her friend?  And what will happen when Samael catches the scent of Lilith’s trail?

The final installment of the Amaranthine series raises the stakes. No longer the cringing, terrified woman she was, Katelina will have to step up or lose everything she’s ever cared about.

Book Review: The Very True Legends of Ol’ Man Wickleberry

Readsalot

Urban myth? Urban legend? Rural folklore?

Pretty much every small town across America has its fair share of tall tales that supposedly have some connection to local history. In this anthology, the common tie is the fabled Ol’ Man Wickleberry. You might have heard one of many renditions of his legend: one part Grizzly Adams, two parts Yetti, toss in a dose of pure crotchety meanness, and you get my drift.

While there is a common theme among these short stories, the specifics of the legend vary greatly. Some legends stem from Ol’ Man Wickleberry’s prowess as a hunter, others delve into the supernatural. The shorts are very creative: abilities to body swap, shape-shifting, heck, there is even talk of rabid, zombie bunny rabbits!

So gather around the campfire. Pass around your favorite bottle of strong liquor and hold that loved one just a bit closer to you. When word…

It’s time for Katelina to face the consequences. On a trip home they meet Verchiel, a too friendly vampire, then the police arrest Jorick.

Between Katelina’s family and the return of an old friend thought dead, it’s almost a relief when Eileifr sends Jorick to Canada as extra security for Andrei’s extravagant gala. Almost. But between a mysterious stalker and a child murderer, things are about to get scary.

Cover Reveal for Bren

Bren has a simple assignment – to deal with a coven who’s killed too many locals. When he takes a victim’s phone as a trophy, he becomes fascinated with the story of her death – almost too fascinated.

Blaming Mom or Why Did I Even Write an Outline?

Yeah, so as you might know, I’m working on the last book in my series. There was so much that needed done in as few drafts as possible, that I spent two or three days sorting everything out and making an outline. It wasn’t a super specific outline, more like:

Go to such a place. Need to talk to so-and-so about what’s-and-all. Such and such needs to happen. Such info needs imparted for X reason. Go to another place.

You can see it’s pretty loose – but my characters still – STILL – cannot stick to it. Someone who was supposed to live – who was in fact integral for the ending – got themselves killed, someone who was supposed to die skipped out on it and are still trucking along, which has had a big impact future books (unless I manage to kill them later, which I doubt).
