Tonight at 8 PM EST, join me and several other Horror Writers Association Atlanta Chapter members for the first Southern Nightmares Reading Series!
This will be a monthly event where members and one guest will be reading live from one of our books. Since this month Broken is the HWA Atlanta Chapter Book of the Month, I’ll be the first one reading! I’ve chosen a pretty spooky section tonight too!
So I apologize folks, but I am terrible at remembering to share interviews I’ve done on here. I share them around like crazy on social media, just because it’s easier to to do, but when it comes down to posting them on my blog, I just forget. It’s one of those bad habits I’ve noticed since my debut novel, Stolen, came out in January, and it’s something I hope to tackle as I continue doing interviews down the road.
The researcher in me thinks there has to be a pattern, because I see other authors struggle with this too, especially as interviews get done around release dates. When you have a book coming out, not only are you prepping for your own release party, but you’re also working on book tours and putting together materials for those. Interviews for some reason just get forgotten after the initial social media push.
So in trying to make up for that lapse, here’s an interview I did back in March for The Horror Tree. Now if you’re a horror author looking for publishers to submit to, this site is indispensable. They’re a free site, and they post up information that is often more detailed than what’s on Duotrope. For short story horror writers, it’s a gem.
So you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to do an interview for them! This is one of the most comprehensive interviews I’ve done about not just Stolen and The She-Wolf of Kanta, but also for Night Feeders. Check out the link below!
It’s been a heck of a week so far! I wrote a lovely little short story featuring Mawr from my novel, Stolen, and the Lady Sphinx. It’s a cute little piece that talks about his live before the events that take place in the book. Seeing as how many people love reading about him, I thought it would be cute to do a little Valentine’s Day special for the adorable guy.
Today is also the kick-off day for my YouTube channel! Each Friday I’ll be releasing videos about writing books, author life, and documenting events that inspire my work. My first video chronicles all the events I’ll be at this year and where you can find me. If you want to chat with me about any of my work, that’s a good time to do it! I hope to see some of you this year, especially since I’ll be doing a couple of out-of-state cons!
I just wanted to take a moment and talk about some of the benefits of hopping onto the mailing list for this site. I know on WordPress especially, I’m bad about just hitting the Follow button and not thinking about it, but that can really limit you on what access you have and what you’re missing out on! So here’s a quick primer on some ways you can keep up to date and get early access to my content.
What You Get
Early Cover Reveals. I’m actually drafting one of these right now. And let me tell you, you won’t want to miss this gorgeous cover!
Early access to short fiction. I just released a never before published YA Dark Fantasy piece at the end of July exclusively for my VIP groups (for now). And knowing how slow I am, it’s going to be a while before it’s available on my blog haha.
Input on all the bookish decisions. For the Facebook group, you can vote on what short story is coming next, have a say on what kind of book swag is coming, and even get to share in any milestones along the way!
You should see a link to it on the menu for this page! Just drop your email address in, and boom, you get the mailing list delivered right to your inbox. If you just want to be kept up to date on everything, organized in a concise fashion, this is the best option.
If Facebook is more your style and you would rather not have more emails in your inbox (I hear you!), then join the Moonlight Wanderers group on Facebook! This team of amazing fans get to experience the journey as I go, and possibly share a few memes along the way.
So why not try one out? If you don’t like it, you can always unsubscribe or leave the group. I just like to make sure my fans don’t miss out on exclusive content!
It’s been quite a busy time for The She-Wolf of Kanta lately! We had a blog tour a few weeks back and if you check out the header up top, you’ll notice that the reviews have been just shining for Mercy and her werewolf adventure. I’ve been so pleased with how much people love her story and I’m so excited for my readers to learn about her world.
If you’re not sure, what I’m talking about, then you may want to sign up for my newsletter so you’ll be the first to find out about any official appearances this year. Like I’ve said before, there’s a LOT going on right now.
First up, Pre-Orders are OPEN for SWoK! I was fortunate enough to see the previews for the print copy, and let me tell you, they are simply gorgeous. The werewolf motif throughout would be enough to get me to buy it even if it wasn’t my book, being the werewolf fan I am. It’s just THAT good.
If you missed my posts on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter, there is a Giveaway right now for SWoK along with an Amazon gift card. Currently there are over 2,000 people who have signed up, but 27 copies will be given away, so the odds aren’t too bad!
Finally, I will be attending the Geranium Festival this year in McDonough, GA. Considering that I’ve attended it ever since I was a kid, it’s crazy that I’ll be a vendor there this year. I’ve joined forces with several other artists, including my sister MorbidSmile, to sell a variety things from knitting work to art prints, and of course my novella SWoK. And since folks have asked me, I WILL be signing copies there upon request.
Whew! So many updates and I’m still a little under two months away from release day. Did I mention that the recording for the audiobook has also begun? Guys, I can’t express how excited I am. As an author, it’s terribly ironic, I know.
