Above Haldis Notch available for pre-order

Physical death is tragic, but the
death of a spirit is a life lost forever

The folks at Musa Publishing did a great job with my novel. I love my cover, and I'm thrilled with my editor and the way Above Haldis Notch has been groomed for publication.

I've been lucky with editors, and Bri, my editor for this novel, certainly continued my streak. It energizes me when my editor and I team up with the common goal to make my novel stronger and to get rid of every little (or big) thing we can find that might jolt a reader out of my story. It's even better when trust is developed between author and editor, and that trust was established early and did nothing but grow as the process continued.

So here's a big thank you kiss to great editors everywhere.


And now that my novel is in its final revisions and coming down the home stretch, exactly one month away from its official release day, I'm pleased to announce that it's now available for pre-order from the publisher for $4.99. Go to the Above Haldis Notch webpage at Musa Publishing by CLICKING HERE. Be sure to specify which eBook format you want. And a bonus tip: Look around at the other Musa titles while you're there.

Can we chat?

Sure we can, and here's where and when...

Celebrity Sunday Chat
Horror Month
Sunday, October 23rd
from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)

Writer's Chatroom is an award-winning website where writers interact. In addition to their workshops and classes, they have weekly chat sessions with selected guest authors. Readers or other writers ask questions about writing in general, the guest author's novels, or anything they'd like to know (and the guest author chooses to answer). I'm proud to be the guest author October 23rd as part of Writer's Chatroom's Horror Month.

There's no fee, no password needed, no subscription required. Just go to http://writerschatroom.com/Enter.htm when the chat opens or during the chat and enter a user's name for your visit. Ask me questions or sit back and take it in, it's up to you, but be sure to stay through the first hour. They give away prizes at the midpoint break.

Please note the time is EST, so make adjustments accordingly. There's a little clock on the entry page which shows what time it is in that time zone.

Hope to chat with you there.

Above Haldis Notch has cover

The release date for my paranormal thriller/horror novel Above Haldis Notch is the day after Thanksgiving, just over 7 weeks away. Musa Publishing has been great to work with. My editor Brianna is wonderful. We've completed the first round of edits, and I'm happy with how we're tuning it up. We have a second round of content edits to go and then the copy edits, but we're making good progress.

And now I have a cover, designed by the very talented Kelly Shorten. I love it. It's gritty and creepy in just the right proportions, has a rural Vermont feel, and contains important elements from inside the pages. I'd write another thousand words describing the cover to you, but I'm sure we'd all rather I post a picture instead. So here it is. *drum roll please*

I hope you love it as much as I do. 

Above Haldis Notch now has its own page on Musa Publishing's website. If you're interested in a few details of what happens inside the cover, CLICK HERE.
