spillingbloodcover2-ep5

Night is about to get a lot more interesting.

It has been one year since the events of Season I. Emily Steel, still a young and inexperienced vampire, struggles to deal with her new existence, feeling homesick and distant from the life she has lost. Her only companion is an undead werewolf.

Where once she feared vampires, Emily now fears the uncertainty of an unlife she doesn’t fully understand, and the hunger for the blood of the living which cannot be denied.

Despite her vampiric urges, Emily finds herself with feelings for a mortal. Though he too has feelings for her, Emily knows it is but a matter of time before he realizes what she is… a monster.

Yet there are forces gathering. Dark shadows move across the night sky. Vampires are disappearing. A hunter has arrived, and Emily is his target.

Spilling Blood is a serial, with each part like a television episode, and the episodes collected in seasons.

Season II will include Episode 5 through Episode 10.

This is Episode 5.

Hastings Book Signing This Saturday with Local Authors Bernsen and Wilson

This Saturday you can meet three authors from the Magic Valley at Hastings, in Twin Falls, Idaho.

I will be there, with my book BROKEN THINGS, along with Sandra Moore Bernsen and Cathy (Catmarie) Wilson.

This is the link to the Event on Facebook.

Sandra is the author of Free My Heart of Grief to Love.

“Free my Heart of Grief to Love” is an exceptional book about losing oneself in the trials of life and ultimately finding the path through survival to living again. Join Sandra as she shares her life’s journey from her earliest childhood experiences to the events that took her to complete and unimaginable heartbreak and sorrow. Through the pain, emptiness and tears, she begins to question everthing she’d known before. Sheer determination to leave the pain behind and become whole again keeps her going. Learning meditation, finding spiritual peace, the ability to love again and happiness in daily life has been her reward.

Sandra’s story is inspirational and empowering. She acknowledges that each person is on his or her own journey through life. It is Sandra’s hope that each reader will find in her book the healing, peace, joy and inspiration to overcome challenges.

Cathy is the author of Strange: Unexplained Tales from Idaho and Beyond.

A series of stories, mainly ghost stories, that touch upon genuine but unexplained phenomena and strange experiences. It includes the author’s own experiences as well as tales from friends and relatives. Odd categories about talking dolls and sympathetic plant life will complete chapters including dreams, reincarnation, and UFOs.

 

 

 

 

Monday Update – On the Horizon

Before I get to the meat of this post, I got to point this out… If you visit this blog from time to time, you can see it’s got a bit of a new look. That feed you see on the left hand side is a visual peek at my Twitter, Facebook, and G+ feeds. That’s through RebelMouse.

NOW! My second novel is almost complete. I promised a hint at the beginning of this month, and then never delivered. Here’s the tease: It’s a fantasy apocalypse. The stereotypical fantasy world is getting a zombie apocalypse. It’s planned to be a series called Hungry Gods. That name might not stick, but I’m liking it so far. I know that doesn’t quite follow the same feel as BROKEN THINGS, but it’s something I wanted to write for fun. 🙂  It will also introduce my writing to a new audience.

Secondly, May and June have a plethora of book signings coming up. I haven’t updated the book signing page as of writing this post, but there will be three (!!!) signings in Boise this weekend. And then next week, I’ll be returning to Twin Falls to sign books with two other authors at Hastings. I’ll be posting the hours early this week for upcoming book sales and signings.

 

Book Signing This Friday

Are you in Twin Falls, Idaho or the surrounding area this Friday (April 19, 2013)? I will be selling and signing copies of BROKEN THINGS at The Art and Soul of the Magic Valley in the Lynwood Shopping Center (1329 Filer Avenue East) from 10 am to 3 pm, along with other authors of the Idaho Authors’ Community. I have limited copies available of my book for the signing, so come early if you’re buying. FYI – I got in on this a bit late, so I did not have time to get a reorder. For future signings, I will have plenty. Watch for more book signing announcements soon.

Here’s the Press Release: 

Idaho Authors’ Community is coming to the Magic Valley

The Idaho Authors’ Community, a statewide organization of authors and authors-to-be, is coming to the Magic Valley to do a book signing event on Friday, April 19.
