Drum Roll Please: Presenting the Cover and Release Date for The Dark Terror

img_3116For 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 Terror represents 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.

The Dark Truth and The Dark Descent are on sale now. Get ready for the final installment, The Dark Terror, coming March 18, 2019!

I thought I would give you an update on what’s happening with The Dark Passage Series. There have been a few developments with regard to pricing and formats.

The Dark Truth

My debut novel, Book One – The Dark Passage Series, The Dark Truth is available as an audio book from both Audible and iTunes/Apple Books. You can listen to it for free with a 30-day Audible trial. You can get The Dark Truth, plus a second, for free. If you order through iTunes, it retails for $17.95.

Amazon.com has the trade paperback edition of The Dark Truth on sale for $5.61, which is 63% off the regular price of $14.99. You can save 10% at Barnes & Noble’s web site and get it for $13.49. They are offering free shipping. For San Francisco Bay Area Barnes & Noble stores, you can get it at Arden Fair in Sacramento, Hacienda Crossings in Dublin, and Bay Street in Emeryville.

The Kindle, Nook, and e-book formats are priced at $1.99.

The Dark Descent

The sequel to The Dark Truth, Book Two – The Dark Passage Series, The Dark Descent, is available in trade paperback, Amazon Kindle, Nook, and e-book. The trade paperback is priced at $14.99, while Kindle, Nook, and e-book formats are $2.99.

For San Francisco Bay Area folks, Barnes & Noble in Modesto, Arden Fair in Sacramento, Hacienda Crossings in Dublin have it in stock in store. If you order online from B&N, they are offering free shipping.

The audio book is currently in production. I have listened to the first four chapters so far, and Cheryl May, who narrated The Dark Truth, is doing a great job.

The Dark Terror

The third and final(?) installment in The Dark Passage Series, The Dark Terror, is done. I took a little over a week to do the self-edit. It is in the hands of my publisher, Trifecta Publishing House of Port Angeles, Washington. After they review it, it will go to their editor. I have it on good authority that the cover designer is set to begin that work.

I will keep everyone updated on cover art, a release date, and ordering information.

Thank you to those of you who have purchased the books, posted reviews, attended book signings/readings. It means the world to me and I am glad I get a chance to share these twisted stories that rattle around in the dark recesses of my mind with you.

The Dark Terror is Off to the Publisher

IMG_3071After an thorough self-edit, and the addition of some detail to a few key scenes, I have submitted the manuscript for The Dark Terror, Book Three – The Dark Passage Series, to my publisher, Trifecta Publishing House of Port Angeles, Wash., a full three weeks ahead of deadline.

Many people ask me how long it takes to write my novels. The Dark Truth took 13 months, and I believe The Dark Descent took seven – eight months. A quick check of the version history in Google Docs reveals that I started writing on January 20, 2018. So, it took just under 10 months to write. I probably could have finished it sooner but I had a hard time closing the book on Elizabeth.

I began The Dark Truth in January of 2016 and finished it in February of 2017. I submitted The Dark Descent to my publisher on time, on deadline on January 1, 2018. The deadline for The Dark Terror is November 1, 2018.

I am quite happy with the fact that I have written three novels in less than three years, The first two are Amazon Bestsellers, and the first has been released as an audio book. Production on the second audio book got underway recently. The great Cheryl May is narrating my tales. I know what Elizabeth Danae Rubis sounds like and I think Cheryl has captured her essence quite well.

Stay tuned for release information and I am sure there will be another book tour in the works once that information becomes available. You will now have a complete trilogy of dark, gritty, bloody, neo-Gothic vampire noir to keep you up at night.

Fangs for your support. Enjoy the nightmares.
