The First Trailer for The Dark Passage Series

I have discovered the ease and joy of iMovie. Over the years I have become a decent videographer and editor but I was at a loss when it came to piecing together a trailer for my first two novels. Well, fret no more. Thanks to some help from my son the aspiring film maker, here is the first trailer for the first two books in The Dark Passage SeriesThe Dark Truth and The Dark Descent.

Book Signing in Folsom


I’m going to resist the shameless Johnny Cash references for this one. I’ll be in Folsom this weekend for my first signing at this particular location and I am excited about it. It’s always fun to go somewhere you really haven’t been and meet new people.

So, come out to the Folsom Barnes & Noble this Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and get a signed copy of my new book, The Dark Descent. Copies of The Dark Truth will also be available if you haven’t read that yet. Order ahead of time and bring them with you to get them signed!

Saturday, May 12
2:00 p.m.

Can’t make it out to this one? I have two other signings on the calendar. Head over to the Upcoming Events page to find out when and where.

The Dark Descent Book Tour Underway

Left to right: Mike Esola, yours truly and K.M. Riley at Barnes & Noble in Emeryville, Calif.

The promotional tour around northern California in support of my second novel, The Dark Descent, is underway.

I had a great time at Barnes & Noble Bay Street in Emeryville, Calif., with fellow authors K.M. Riley and Mike Esola. Riley is a labelmate with Trifecta Publishing House. It was a lot of fun participating in my first panel discussion as a published author and I hope to be a part of many more as part of this new vocation. Thank you to Barnes & Noble for hosting the event, and to Esola and Riley for sharing their wisdom and insight.

The next panel I will be a part of takes place Sunday, June 10, at the San Francisco Comic Con at the Oakland Convention Center in downtown Oakland. I will be joined by fellow Trifecta Publishing House authors Mark London Williams, K.M. Riley, and Samantha Heuwagen. We will get to rub elbows with some great folks in the entertainment industry and I’m looking forward to once again discussion something I am very passionate about.

More information about this opportunity is on the way very soon.

I also have three book signing events coming up and I am working on a TV appearance. Head over to the upcoming events page to find out what’s on tap.

Book Tour Part Deux

I’ll be back at the Modesto Barnes & Noble on Saturday, June 2 at Noon.

The book tour in support of my second novel, The Dark Descent, is really starting to heat up. I currently have four events confirmed, with another big announcement for a fifth coming very soon. My weekends this spring and summer are going to be very busy.

This Saturday, I’ll be at the Bay Street Barnes & Noble location in Emeryville along with fellow authors K.M. Riley and Mike Esola. Riley, a published author,  is a Trifecta Publishing House labelmate and was recent guest on my podcast. Esola has written several novels. We’ll be taking part in a panel discussion on fiction writing, publishing and the creative process. The event starts at 2:00 p.m.

On Saturday, May 12, I’ll be at the Folsom, Calif., Barnes & Noble location. I’ve never been to this store and I have only driven through Folsom so this will be a new experience for me. That event starts at 2:00 p.m. also.

The next two just locked in and they are return engagements with Barnes & Noble stores where I had two of my first signings. I really do appreciate their support.

On Saturday, May 26, I’ll be back at the Arden Fair Barnes & Noble in Sacramento, the site of my first-ever book signing event. That event begins at 11:00 a.m.

And, on Saturday, June 2, the Modesto Barnes & Noble beckons once more. That signing starts at Noon.

The Dark Descent is the sequel to my debut novel, The Dark Truth, which dropped last November. I am in work on the third in The Dark Passage Series, The Dark Terror. Head over to the Books page to learn more about the title.

30762688_1745305595515791_1603431623695532032_oToday is the official release date for The Dark Descent, the sequel to my debut novel, The Dark Truth. It is a dark, twisted tale of bloody supernatural murder.

If you liked the first, do yourself a favor and grab the second book.” Amazon customer review

The first review is in:


“Descent doesn’t disappoint; it’s a rousing, easy read without a boring moment in it. Elizabeth has continued to grow into herself, if you will, with a host of exciting new abilities that add a bit more action to the story. It’s still fairly true to vampire lore while also being entertaining. The author’s flushed out some more characters, entangling them alongside Elizabeth’s fate, further complicating the threads she’s weaved. All for the better of course. Plus, the story’s revealed a hidden world they’re a part of, and admittedly what I had been curious about. Wouldn’t you know, these tales aren’t just a fantasy. Without giving too much away, I’m curious as to the story arc of how this will all end, and I look forward to the next in the series. If you liked the first, do yourself a favor and grab the second book.”

From the back cover:

A New Beginning

Elizabeth Rubis, ex-San Francisco public relations professional turned impulse-control-challenged vampire, may have escaped her rocky prison in an abandoned coal mine, but trouble keeps following her bloody trail. The unapologetic Elizabeth better get her act together and fast.

A New Ally, A New Enemy

Finding a surprising ally in San Francisco police detective Jonas Dietrich, even as she continues stumbling through her transformation, is comforting but a new enemy has emerged – an actual church-trained vampire hunter.

A True Demon

As Elizabeth discovers new supernatural powers along the way, she continues to evolve into a true demon of the night.
