First Leg of Book Tour in the Books

29356775_1709925145720503_1132610269256613888_nAfter an enjoyable signing event at the Gilroy, Calif., Barnes & Noble location, The Dark Truth book tour has drawn to a close. However, The Dark Descent releases four weeks from tomorrow on Monday, April 23. I’ll post pre-sale information as soon as it becomes available.

I did four signing events, three radio interviews and one in-studio TV appearance. Event calendar announcements for two of the signings appeared in local newspapers and accompanying web sites. Thank you to all of the media professionals who accommodated me.

I’d like to thank friends and co-workers who came to out to support me, and of course, the people I met at these events – those who purchased on the spot, ordered later, or just stopped by to chat. I have met a lot of great people so far, and I am looking forward to meeting more book lovers.

Details have yet to be finalized, but I have several more events in the works. I’ll be returning to a couple of locations and adding a few new ones for The Dark Descent book tour. I was interviewed for the Write About Now podcast recently. I’ll let you know when the episode is available for your listening pleasure. I am also scheduled for an appearance on Write Now with Sarah Werner in July.

Work on The Dark Terror continues. I don’t know where it’s going to go or how it ends, but it’s been a wild ride to write the first 12,000 words. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it.

If you haven’t already, I encourage you to get and read The Dark Truth, and get ready for The Dark Descent. April 23 will be here before you know it. And you don’t want Elizabeth knocking on your window in the middle of the night.

If you have read the book, please drop a review on the web site for the store where you made the purchase. Any and all feedback is welcome and encouraged.

Thank you all for your support.

From the back cover of The Dark Descent:

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.

Heading South for Next Book Signing Event


I had a great time at the Modesto Barnes & Noble last weekend. Some great folks stopped by to chat and learn more about me and The Dark Truth. Friends and coworkers came out to show their support as well.

My next event is scheduled for Saturday, March 17 from 2 – 4 p.m. PT at the Gilroy Barnes & Noble. Vampires in the Garlic Capital, oh my. If you are in Northern California, I hope you come out, pick up a copy of the book and get it signed.

Thank you to everyone who has come out to the three events so far. I hope you enjoy the book. The sequel is due out in April.

Book Tour Continues

BN-modesto.2jpgAfter a fun evening at Mockingbird Books in Tracy, Calif., last Friday night, I have another signing event coming up this Saturday. I’ll be at the Modesto, Calif., Barnes & Noble location signing copies of my debut novel, The Dark Truth. The event starts at Noon.

The next book in the series is due out in April, so come on out, get a copy of the first one, meet me, and get it signed!

Book Tour Continues

Next Book Signing Fast Approaching

21761387_1532492320130454_2955689489606566777_nThe book tour is starting to heat up. After three radio interviews, a TV appearance, and a signing at Barnes & Noble Arden Fair in Sacramento, I’ll be at Mockingbird Books in Tracy, Calif., Friday night from 7 – 9 p.m. There will be refreshments.

Geronimo at Mockingbird was the first person to schedule yours truly for a signing. I finally got to meet Mark the last time I stopped in. It’s a great local store with an eclectic selection. It’s the epitome of a small town bookstore – new, used, high-end collector’s editions, kids books, graphic novels and more. The only thing the store is missing is a resident cat.

I’m looking forward to seeing my friends, coworkers and neighbors, in addition to meeting some great new people at this event.

Come on out, get a copy of The Dark Truth, and get it signed. Already have yours? Bring it and I’ll sign it for you.

First Book Signing Goes Well

28055951_2114349538795624_3011385751419680606_nI hosted my first book signing event today at Barnes and Noble at Arden Fair in Sacramento. The store was decked out for yours truly, which is a heady tonic. It’s fulfilling and validating to see your picture, your book cover, and your name on a Barnes and Noble event sign next to your books in the window.

I spent five hours at the store chatting with patrons and hawking my wares. To the young lady whose mom saw my appearance on Good Day Sacramento and couldn’t wait for the event (and meet me) – thank you. I wish you all the success in the world in your creative endeavors.

And thank you to everyone who stopped by the table and took a moment to chat with me, whether you bought a copy or not (extra thanks to those of you who did). For those of you who didn’t purchase, but took a postcard or bookmark, I hope you do decide to give The Dark Truth a try.

28059385_1679402465439438_9104079527134301874_nSpecial thanks to Erik Stevens, Community Business Development Manager at Barnes and Noble Arden Fair. Although we weren’t able to meet in person, the store staff members were gracious and helpful. Thank you to every employee I encountered today, you helped make me feel very special.

I absolutely adore bookstores, chains or indie. I mentioned it before, if you sell books, you’re okay in my … um … book. It was an absolute thrill for me to sit at a table in a bookstore, surrounded by books, at a table signing MY books.

Hopefully, with three more signing currently scheduled, this is the start of something big.
