“Gaspingly Magnificent! Knaak pens a wonderfully terrifying story in The Dark Terror … Knaak has a way of telling a story that puts the reader on the edge of the seat … this tale of survival keeps this reader turning the pages, and gasping out loud.”

Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews

Second Advance Review for The Dark Terror is In

Third Book Tour to End Where First Began

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.

Third Book Tour to End Where First Began

Author Copies Have Arrived

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.

A Team-Up of Vampiric Proportions

I am teaming up with The Vampire Tour of San Francisco for a special private tour for readers Saturday, April 6, starting at 7:00 p.m.

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.

More information is coming soon!

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!
