All sorts of news about THE book.
Night Children: Dark Birth is my first novel. "Wait Scott, wasn't Dark Threats your first one?"
Actually no. Seven years this month I watched Interview With a Vampire and found myself searching for something. Days later I found it as I tried to write my own vampire child story and Annabelle walked out of my imagination and onto paper.
Years of beta readers, critique groups, 6th and 8th grade classes, a professional editor and several drafts brought me to the current version of this novel.
Dark Threats is one chapter removed from that original novel plus a lot of new stuff written just for the my debut into the world of eBooks. Threats is a collection of short stories to introduce people to the world of Annabelle and Roland.
Months ago I decided to break the first novel into two books; Dark Birth and Dark Trials. Last Friday I changed my mind. This story stands better as one.
I've gone through and formatted it for online publishing. I had some troubles but I finally mastered it last night. I uploaded it to Smashwords and it's available there.
Dark Birth on Smashwords!
I wont reveal it to Facebook and Twitter yet because I'm waiting for it to be reviewed by the Smashwords team for any format errors. Once it's good, I'll load it on Amazon and Barns & Noble.com.
Also, thanks to my Highland-loving coworker and pal, Don Phillips, I have a pic that has been used for the cover.
So much going on! I can't wait for you to read my real first book, Annabelle and Roland's origin story! Hope you like it!
