Life, don't talk to me about life

Actually it's pretty good. I'm working at a great job with benefits, all is well with my family, and I'm hard at work on book 3 of the Night Children series.

But GAH! I haven't posted in over a year!

Sorry folks. I'll do better.

Here's a pic...

Welcome to the 5th Annual Spooktacular Giveaway Hop!

Hey there! Once again I'm part of the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop! hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer
And what am I giving away? 
Hmmm... Maybe I'll give away free witch visits to your house?

Nawww. That's pretty raciest or something.
How about a pet werewolf?

Nope. They shed.

I know! An autograph photo from Dracula!

No. He's got better things to do.

How about the opportunity to babysit?

Heh. She's just so cute! And I won't have to leave any food for her to eat. You'll bring her food with you!
What's wrong? Why are you looking at the door? No! Don't leave!
I KNOW! Why don't I throw all those things in to one FREE gift? A book!

One lucky person who posts in the comments will get NIGHT CHILDREN: DARK BIRTH for free. 

Here's what it's about...

Annabelle and Roland’s lives changed forever after they died. Annabelle is terrified of facing Dominic, the master vampire who killed their parents. She’d rather get a stake to the heart than fight him but a confrontation is inevitable. Roland is thirsty for the battle, longing for revenge. They train to survive Dominic and waves of his loyal werewolves, vampires, sasquatches and dark witches.

As if their new undead lives weren't complicated enough, they must rescue a real witch from the Salem Witch Trials and dodge lethal attacks from a cruel monster hunter.

They have a short season to master their new abilities, including transforming into bats and mesmerizing others, before Dominic and his dark warriors launch their final, devastating attack. 

Sounds great? Well then comment below!

And don't forget to check out these many mighty hoppers too!

Book Two Has a cover!

Feast your eyes on the cover of NIGHT CHILDREN: DARK CHANGES! I bought the flag image from The artist is known by the handle BeRad. I needed help formatting it and Shanda Maple, a fellow employee at my day job, helped me out.

Dark Changes has been uploaded to Createspace and a proof of the paperback version has been ordered so I can show it at the Children's Book Fair. 

My critique group is going over it for a last look, and I'm not quite happy with the back cover blurb, so there will be some tweaking before I officially release it next month.

Watch this space for more information!

A BIG thank you to my daughter Sara for an amazing idea! I now know what happened with my cast of undead heroes during the moon landing in 1969! 
It will become book 12, DARK ECLIPSE! That combined with my 1950's style DARK INVASION means a total of THIRTEEN Annabelle books! Perfect spooky number!

Book One: Dark Birth
Book Two: Dark Changes
Book Three: Dark Quest
Book Four: Dark Revolution
Book Five: Dark Wilderness
Book Six: Dark Exodus
Book Seven: Dark Betrayal
Book Eight: Dark Frontier
Book Nine: Dark Experiment
Book Ten: Dark War
Book Eleven: Dark Invasion
Book Twelve: Dark Eclipse
Book Thirteen: Dark Cataclysm

Can't wait to write it all! Dark Changes is coming very soon. Working on Dark Quest now.
So excited!
