June, 2017: The Vacation Edition

Wow! It’s hard to believe this is my first monthly update of the year. So far, 2017 has kept me hopping! Between book releases, my son’s first year of school (kindergarten, gah!), an awesome family vacation, and turning 30, I haven’t been on the Interwebs much lately. While I miss my online friends, it’s feltContinue reading “June, 2017: The Vacation Edition”

The Devil’s Disease: TEASER #3

Lena looked back at Durbin.  “Who is that?” He shook his head, and moved up to stand beside her.  “You’d better let me handle this.” The woman reached them.  “Would one of you like to tell me just how you got on my crime scene?” Durbin cleared his throat.  “Apologies, Inspector.  We’re not trying toContinue reading “The Devil’s Disease: TEASER #3”

The Devil’s Disease, TEASER #2

The Wayfare Hotel for Restless Spirits was every bit as spooky as he remembered. MacMillian wedged his dark green Plymouth Fury into a spot alongside The Panhandle, and stared across the street at the vast old Victorian.  Was it him, or had it expanded since he’d last been here?  That was impossible, of course.  EvenContinue reading “The Devil’s Disease, TEASER #2”

The Devil’s Disease: TEASER #1

Night was never dark enough in the city. There was a single window in the small room he shared with the others. Unnatural orange light spilled through the single-paned glass. He could practically feel it, the individual particles screaming in his head like members of a discordant orchestra. The street outside was quiet, but heContinue reading “The Devil’s Disease: TEASER #1”

It’s Witching Season, Bitches

Happy Launch Day! In honor of my new book’s birthday, I thought I’d post the prologue for you guys to read.  That’s right. The whole thing.  🙂 Happy reading! † † †  Before  † † †   It was not accustomed to being summoned.

Season Of The Witch: TEASER #5 (Extended Version)

  Darius didn’t look up.  “You’re late.” “You’re lucky I came at all.”  Kristof glanced around again.  “Of course you had to pick the dive-y-est dive bar this side of Market.  I think that door handle just gave me a venereal disease.” Darius coughed, and signaled the bartender. Kristof glanced at his empty glass.  “LittleContinue reading “Season Of The Witch: TEASER #5 (Extended Version)”

Season Of The Witch: TEASER #4

  He was fairly sure he’d bruised a rib. Darius sat perched on the edge of Georgia Clare’s faded sofa. In front of him were the shattered remains of what he guessed had once been a coffee table. It was little more than kindling now; a sad, splintery mess. He stared at it, his brainContinue reading “Season Of The Witch: TEASER #4”

Season Of The Witch: TEASER #3

She was late. Darius shifted as he waited for the crosswalk light to change.  Across Haight’s busy intersection, the corner where Georgia had instructed him to meet her was empty.  Darius swallowed a groan.  His head felt like it was on fire, but at least it wasn’t as bad as the other day.  At leastContinue reading “Season Of The Witch: TEASER #3”

Season Of The Witch: TEASER #2

Something about the floating club reminded him of Wonderland. Not Disney’s Wonderland, either, but Wonderland according to Lewis Carroll: dark, sumptuous. Treacherous. It was the sort of place where anything could happen…and probably did. He had a feeling if a deranged, bloodthirsty monarch suddenly swept in and started demanding people’s heads, no one would batContinue reading “Season Of The Witch: TEASER #2”

Season Of The Witch: TEASER #1

It was not accustomed to being summoned. The night began like any other, not that it normally had much use for mundane notions of time.  All nights bled together in the dark wasteland where it preferred to hunt.  It was hot on some hapless creature’s trail when it first felt the pull. IGNORE. A gustContinue reading “Season Of The Witch: TEASER #1”
