A Quick Bite of Vampire Goodness

Have you hugged your vampire recently?
Have you held her close, admiring the way the candlelight dances on her fangs?
Have you enjoyed the fact that he doesn't have that annoying heartbeat under your ear when you rest your head on his chest?


Tell me, have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

Err.. sorry, these questions had me channeling a little Jack, but I'm back now.

Seriously, have you been needing a fresh bit of undead love in your life?  Or maybe you're just longing for violence and chaos?  Well, I can provide both with a couple quick clicks.

[WARNING: WHAT FOLLOWS IS A DASH OF SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION.  KEEP READING, IT WILL BE QUICK AND RELATIVELY PAINLESS.  MORE LIKE THAT FIRST KISS THAT HITS YOUR CHIN INSTEAD OF YOUR LIPS AND LESS LIKE RIPPING OFF A BAND-AID]

The Dark Days series is waiting for you.  The six-book series follows the roller-coaster adventures of a centuries old vampires named Mira and her companion, a vampire hunter named Danaus, as they race around the globe, fighting creatures determined to crush the human race.  When they have spare time, they are either fighting each other or fighting their attraction for one another. 

The first book in the series is Nightwalker.  Here is a description of the events in the first book:


For centuries Mira has been a nightwalker—an unstoppable enforcer for a mysterious organization that manipulates earth-shaking events from the darkest shadows. But elemental mastery over fire sets her apart from others of her night-prowling breed . . . and may be all that prevents her doom.


The foe she now faces is human: the vampire hunter called Danaus, who has already destroyed so many undead. For Mira, the time has come to hunt . . . or be hunted. 

In the first book, Mira and Danaus race from Savannah, U.S. to Aswan, Egypt to London, England; chasing a nightmare from Mira's past while they try to figure out if they can trust each other long enough to save the human race.

This dark adventure does have an undercurrent of romance, but you have to remember that these two hate each other.  It's a slow burn that leads you to a forest fire before the last book in the series.

Are you interested, but the holidays have left your wallet feeling light?  Don't worry.  My publisher has helped with that.  For the next month (until February 6), the Nightwalker e-book is available for download for only $0.99!  That's right.  Get the entire first book for only $0.99.

Maybe you're still not sure that you want to devote your time to an entire book.  Maybe you just want a taste of the Dark Days world.  I understand and I can help.

On January 31, the prequel novella to the Dark Days series will be released as an e-book.  This novella originally appeared in the Unbound anthology and for the first time, will be available as it's own e-book for downloading.

The Dead, the Damned and the Forgotten

A nightwalker is slain, and suspicion falls on Mira—Fire Starter—the last hope of her immortal race.

Well, that's kind of short for a novella description.  Let's me add this: 

The prequel story takes place in Mira's home of Savannah about a month before the events of Nightwalker.  The story focuses on Mira's investigation of a murder that puts her in a bad spot as Elder vampires are looking to use it as an excuse to kill her if she can't clean up the mess.  You meet several character that will be making appearances later in the series and get a feel for how Mira's world works within the Dark Days series.  That and it's just a fun, short whodunit-type mystery.

When the novella is released on January 31, it will be downloadable for $0.99.  Yep, for less than $2, you can have two stories.  Not a bad deal.

So, if you're now excited about getting some good deals on some books, here are some links to help you along.

Thanks for your patience and I wish you happy reading!  I'll return to my usual rambling on about writing and tattoos and addictions next month.

But why is the rum gone?
Hide the rum. 
Err... sorry.  That was the other Jack now. Happy reading!
