Gargoyles- the next “It” creature, September 20, 2016

Just a quick note to share something I found to be pretty darned cool. We have a new 5 Star review over at Amazon from a wonderful 51ZaYzr-3DL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_reader. As you know, book 2, Phantom Limb Itch, is nearly complete. I know this one has been a long time coming. It is a long book, which, I’ve heard, is common for the second book in any series. If you’ve read SCALES, your reviews are very appreciated. Thanks again. (=

And so, I’m off to the writing cave.

A little about Phantom Limb Itch…

I just want to clear up a little something about Phantom Limb Itch, which is book two in my gargoyle series. Most feel Scales (book one) is YA, and understandably so. That’s fine for book one. Book two, is not YA. It is adult urban fantasy. It is vary dark and there are elements of horror throughout, along with other adult themes. The biggest reason for this change is because Tessa, herself, is growing up. In book one she was age eighteen and freshly emancipated from being raised by a “gaggle” of nuns. In Phantom she’s been forced to ditch any remaining adolescence. We can’t expect our dear girl to stay young. Tessa isn’t a child any longer and she doesn’t act like one in book two.

News from the Writing Cave- Upcoming Events, What’s New at the Cave, and Pre-orders for The Witcher Chime are Rolling In!

Happy Wednesday from The Writing Cave!

I’m working on the rewrite for PHANTOM LIMB ITCH right now and it’s crazy exciting to see how The Fate and Fire Trilogy will progress with the release of Book 2. My publisher is gearing up over at Strigidae Publishing and they’ve hinted about the cover design. Cover reveals are one of my favorite parts of the process. A good cover will be relevant and encompass a project in an image. They nailed it with SCALES. I’m dying to see the cover for PHANTOM!

This is the first opportunity to purchase The Witcher Chime. This is also the first time I’ve ever been a part of a pre-order campaign for one of my projects, so it’s pretty exciting for me. You can pre-order the book at Amazon for release on July 31.

In 1922 and in 1988 a deadly, possessive entity imprints on members of the same family, ancient as Genesis and determined to be free. Savannah Caleman is the latest object of obsession in this chilling, historical tale of haunted legacy and terror.

What’s next?

I’ll be speaking at the Pueblo West Library in Pueblo, Colorado, Saturday, July 23rd from 10-12. We’ll cover topics like pitching projects to publishers, and other important issues for writers. I’ll also have a few books on hand for signing. Come on out!

Thanks and happy reading!
