The Dark Terror arrives on Monday, March 18, and has been available for pre-order for a few weeks now. I am extremely happy to announce that the first advance review for Book Three – The Dark Passage Series is in and it is wonderful.
“Knaak has created such a fantastic world in The Dark Passage series filled with vampire lore, comedy, suspense, and a hint of romance.” – Rae’s Reading Lounge.
Barnes & Noble Arden Fair in Sacramento hosted my very first book signing event when The Dark Truth was released. Now, unless I line something up after April 20, they will host the final event in The Dark Passage Series book tours. The Dark Terror book tour (as of now) concludes at the Arden Fair Barnes & Noble on Saturday, April 20. This will be my third event at the Arden Fair store. I hope you come out and see me.

As I noted on my personal blog recently, there are many steps to the book creation process and there are some more exciting than others. One of the most thrilling is receiving your author copies. The first 15 copies of The Dark Terror arrived yesterday and they look fantastic, if I do say so myself.
It’s like Christmas morning when this package arrives. After months of writing, weeks of editing, reviewing the electronic files and then finally getting to see the physical book and hold it in your hands, that’s exhilarating.
The Dark Terror is available for pre-order, and as I often like to write and say, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
The Dark Terror, available in trade paperback, Kindle and e-book as of March 18, is a bloody, vampire noir from Trifecta Publishing House of Port Angeles, Wash., set in modern-day San Francisco. Elizabeth Rubis, the foul-mouthed vampire with the acerbic wit, develops even more new abilities as her demonic evolution continues. She desperately must elude the authorities while pursuing her maker and tormentor. This story of supernatural transformation and bloody revenge can only come to a violent conclusion in a battle between the forces of good and evil, and the bewildered.
The award-winning tour is $25 per person, payable on location at the meeting point on the corner of California and Taylor streets, across from Grace Cathedral. All three books in The Dark Passage Series will be available for purchase and tour goers will have the opportunity to win a complete set along with other prizes.
The Vampire Tour of San Francisco is a walking tour of the beautiful Nob Hill area of San Francisco. The stops are: Grace Cathedral, the Nob Hill Cafe, Huntington Park, the Pacific-Union Club, the Fairmont Hotel, and the Mark Hopkins Hotel. This special event will also highlight specific locations from the books.

For the third time in two years I have the distinct pleasure in making a book release announcement and a cover reveal. I revel in all aspects of the writing and publishing process and I must admit, the cover reveal is almost as exciting as publish day. I am proud to announce that Book Three – The Dark Passage Series, The Dark Terror, is set to release on March 18, 2019. I frankly can’t wait.
I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to write three novels in less than three years. The Dark Terrorrepresents the conclusion(?) of a trilogy of dark, gritty, bloody vampire tales set in modern-day San Francisco. I have a created a character I have grown to love, respect, cherish, and even fear. Elizabeth Danae Rubis is a reflection of yours truly, dare I say an alter ego. She is a foul-mouthed vampire with an acerbic wit and an unquenchable thirst. She has learned, changed and grown much during her evolution. I have been walking around in her skin for the better part of three years and she has been a lot of fun to write. Her fate you ask? You’ll have to read the book.
Thank you to my publisher, Trifecta Publishing House of Port Angeles, Wash., this cover is the best of the three is I do say so myself.
