a night of frivolity
As you may be aware I've started a new shop on my website. You can click the "Books" link above or the links on the home page to reach the one item for sale so far:
With blood and love,
Today was a tough-ish day for me, what with the immense allergies, and the annoying eczema I've been graced with very recently. I went back to sleep when the boyfriend went to work, and stayed that way for 2 minutes, hating how I felt while 'awake.'
After a while of this, I decided to wake up and focus on things I needed to do. Applied for more jobs, and checked my Twitter. And got a nice surprise. I recently hit 400 followers. (Cue the trumpets.)
I know it's not a lot (yet), but it's a wonderful step in that direction. Anyway, I plugged A Night of Frivolity, you know that little horror, historical fiction, short story I wrote a year ago, published by Before Sunrise Press? And while looking for images of the book's cover (this is a new laptop), I found a cute little website where I guess people can put their wishlists, and I found a Night of Frivolity on their wishlist along with a bunch of other cutesy vampire-esque things the person desires.
There's something quite validating about someone wanting your work, whether that be verbally for visually. If anything it helped me feel a bit better about myself and the work I do.
(If you haven't noticed, I've been a bit miserable and fighting to remain happy.)
I guess the things I'm re-learning (sigh, ain't that always the way), is to remain focused on what I've done and what I plan to do and not get so hung up on the things that aren't exactly happening yet. I will get there, like I did everything else, in time.
Keep your bite,
From Pally on Amazon! I was so happy when I got the eBook the moment I finish ordering. As I started to read the narration got to me, I felt like I was there watch everything from the begin to the end. The suspense was in each page as I read from the moment she enter the Gentleman's club to the panic in the room. Great short story for those rainy days or just went to feel at the edge of your seat.
Get your copy today and cozy up to a 'suspenseful' read!
And don't forget to Keep Your Bite!
You get to pick from two fancy new covers made from artist Joel Amat Güell, who also designed my cover for A Night of Frivolity:
In fact, Joel has designed covers for all of the Before Sunrise Press works, all of which can be seen here, at their store:
All of the covers are beautifully created, but none so much as the artwork for NOCTURN, which, to be truly admired, must be seen up close:
Isn't that incredible? Yes, you can pre-order it now, and yes, you may want to do so soon because you can get author-signed copies of this beautiful piece, and I think it's only for a limited time, so do it now!
I, myself, am planning on snagging me a copy as soon as I can. Besides Mr. Moore being a fantastic writer, he's also been a good friend to me on my writing journey and was the one who sent me to BSP, telling me they were accepting short stories for their anthology.
Amazing how things happen, isn't it?
So support this entrepreneur and get this book today!
Oh! I haven't even told you what it's about! Peep the synopsis here:
When Michael, an amnesiac vampire, wakes up on the edges of Breton, a strange Virginia mining town in the midst of Civil War, he puts the townsfolk on a trajectory for disaster with an ancient coven of vampires and their mysterious handlers, “The Alliance”, uncovering an international conspiracy.
The government officials of Breton await the arrival of a lantern containing the heart of a powerful vampire, a telepathic device used to control the masses. As war rages outside the town, an unlikely team of misfit orphans and spies takes on the local government and the vampires who control them. When the lantern is released and Lord Ruthven, the vampire trapped within it, descends on the town only an amnesiac Michael can stop him from destroying everyone in Breton. As the battle rages into the night, Michael must question himself over whether he should join the vampires or fight them in order to save the people of the town.

Still here, and still writing. Things have turned around since my latest posts, and I've rekindled my love for my characters in The Delacroix Series, as well as my newer characters in my short story, soon to be full-length novel,
A Night of Frivolity, available now for Kindle for $4.99 - free if you're a Kindle Prime member.
I may just keep this short, but I wanted to seriously thank everyone that's bought their copies of my novels and short stories, and have interviewed me, shared my work, and spread the word. It means a lot. And it goes a long way.
I'm currently watching Burn Notice with my family so I'm gonna head back to that, but I just wanted to share this with you all.
Things are moving a long! And you should head over to
Keep your bite!
And I hope you like the new design! ;)
