It's Alive!

Well...live, anyway. My paranormal romance, Shadows of Evil, is now available from Samhain Publishing. You can go here to find out more.

Here's the blurb:

For Kia Wolfe, moving to an isolated mountaintop is an act of independence from her demanding family and ex-fiancĂ©. She’s literally dreamed about the regal old house for years, and for the first time in her life she feels at home. She’s here to stay, even though the house’s history of violent deaths is enough to scare off most people.
Garrett McKnight, owner of the contracting firm Kia has hired to renovate her house, is wary of the new resident. Emotionally bruised and battered by a self-centered ex-wife, he can’t get around the fact that there’s something about Kia that both attracts him and sets him on edge. And when Kia dabbles in a bit of Wicca, accidentally unleashing a hidden evil, it’s tempting to walk away and leave her to her to her fate.
But he can’t. Not when four people have died in that house.
Warning, this title contains the following: a bit of explicit sex, a touch of graphic language, some graphic violence, and a scare or two.

Now I'm going to happy dance!!!

Every morning I wake up with a random song running through my head. Sometimes there’s something in the lyrics that reminds me of my life at the moment, or maybe the tune reflects my mood, or maybe I heard the tune late in the previous day. This morning was different. I woke up with a chant in my head: "My book comes out tomorrow!"

As excited as I am, I’m terrified as well. Not long after I woke up with the chant in my head—and a smile on my face—I drifted off again, only to have one of those short falling dreams. I woke up sure I was falling off the bed. And the floor seemed farther away than usual. Fear—it doesn’t take a dream expert to know that’s what I was feeling.

Then again, it seems the more anticipated and exciting something is, the more likely we’ll be scared. From childbirth to new jobs, we humans mix our emotions on a regular basis. And that interests me as a person—and as a writer.

If you’d like to find out more about the book, you can go here.
The members of my author group will be getting an excerpt seen nowhere else. Plus, tomorrow I’m going to be giving away a free copy of Shadows of Evil to someone in my Yahoo group.
If you’d like to get your name in the running, join me at my chat group.

Happy Memorial Day. May the memory of those who have fallen protecting our country be honored today, and every day.
