Cover reveal: Waiting for Midnight

Today I get to share something fun, a little side project I've been working on for the past couple of months. My first novel, AFTERLIFE, came out in September, 2010. My second novel, FEAST, released in June, 2011. It's been a while since I've had any new books or stories published.

So, I put together an ebook short story collection, titled WAITING FOR MIDNIGHT. And today I'm doing a cover reveal.

[Imagine a drum roll here...]

[Ta da! Slightly ominous, but lovely image of girl in forest temporarily captivates readers...]

WAITING FOR MIDNIGHT is scheduled to release next week on Kindle and, even though the ebook is approximately 70 pages long and contains 20,000 words, it will be reasonably priced at .99.

I put this anthology together with my readers in mind, creating several new tales, as well as carefully selecting and editing stories I've written over the years.

Full of plot twists and dark characters, this combination of speculative short stories and flash fiction will contain a ghost story, a werewolf story and a science fiction story, as well as two tales that feature characters from my novels, AFTERLIFE and FEAST.

Here's a little info about some of the stories included:

Set on an alien world, “Letters from Home” tells the tale of a mother’s love for her wayward son and the great lengths to which she’ll go to rescue him from another dimension.

“Learning to Hunt” features Ash, the Darkling dream-eater introduced in FEAST: Harvest of Dreams, as he explores seventeenth-century Amsterdam, where his father teaches him how to harvest dreams.

“Waiting for Midnight” explores that dangerous territory between first love and obsession, all set in Primrose Wood, a forest where dark magic rules.


I'll be sure to keep you posted when the book goes up on Amazon! Meanwhile, feel free to share the cover of WAITING FOR MIDNIGHT online. In fact, I'd appreciate it if you would! I would be forever grateful if you would consider sharing a link to this blog post, or copy and paste the book cover image onto your blog or Facebook page.

A quick note, my newsletter subscribers will get to read one of the short stories FREE, before anyone else. And there's still time to sign up before the newsletter goes out.
