Dark Water: Beaming Smile on sale this weekend!

Bram Stoker Award recommended reading

Dark Water: Beaming Smile is on sale this weekend on

Sarah should have left Montgomery County when she had the chance, but now it's too late. She is trapped on the rooftop of her family home which is almost completely submerged by dark flood waters. The air smells of a mixture of sewage and mold and it’s still raining. Alone with only her thoughts Sarah is mad she did not leave town years ago when she was right out of high school, before she became the one things she dreaded most; her mother.

    Haunted by the reoccurrence of an eerie thumping sound, Sarah is startled when she discovers a large hairy animal, almost the size of a cow, brushing against the corner of her house. What is it? Where did it come from? What other horrors are hiding in the dark water?

If you read it, please leave a review. Thanks!!! 

BTW- updated my author site with more information.

Updates: New Guest Posts and Interview! Queries and Submissions!

Hi all,

First up, the celebration of book release giveaway for BLOOD DIVIDED ended this weekend and Goodreads sent me the list of lucky winners. I will be sending out those books at the end of this week. I also have a few more review copies I need to mail... Time to start packing books!

I'm happy to say I had two things go live last week. One guest post and one interview.

The interview I did was with Literary Escapism. I added some nice excerpts in it. You can read it here;

The guest post, which is in my series of goofy ramblings about stuff (all for fun), is at Dark Faerie Tales site and can be read here;

In other news, I started submitting two books to agents in January. One Urban Fantasy-Action Adventure which I want to turn into a 5-7 book series. The other a brand new Viking Age Dark Fantasy Horror in a Alternate History genre. That book is some of my finest work and I'm very proud of it. I would like that book to start a series too. At least 3 books, maybe 5. 

And.... Starting the first round of queries in the new year! Yay ( /sigh)

Right off the bat, January started with a really interesting email. I was contacted by Unique Features Films, a production company created by the New Line Cinema guys. They saw one of my postings on Publishers Marketplace and asked to read the full manuscript of my Urban Fantasy novel that I am submitting. (good thing its copyrighted) So I sent it to them in mid Jan. Shortly afterwards I had a full request for that same novel by one of the top agents in the business. So I am happy I am getting some interest. So far no solid offers, but I am really hoping 2012 is my year.

In 2012 I'm planning on: sending out queries, finishing book 3 in the Soul Born Saga and writing another new book.  Above all else, I need an agent. You hear that Mayan calendar. I need an agent before the world ends... unless me getting an agent is a sign that the world will end. Whoa... freaky...
