A Return to NightWhere…

2022 was the 10-year anniversary of the release of NightWhere, my sixth novel and my second to be a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award. It was also the year I finished writing its long-awaited and promised sequel, The Night Mother. After years of wanting to tell the story of Selena, the mysterious fallen angel from NightWhere, I finally rolled up my sleeves and did it. And the story surprised me! The novel went in a bit of a different direction than I intended… but I love how it turned out.

NightWhere was one of the first releases from the now-defunct Samhain Publishing, and has become one of my most-read novels, which is funny to me because for years I was a little afraid to write it, given its over-the-top “sex club from hell” themes. One reviewer called it “50 Shades meets Hellraiser,” which I think is the best description ever! The novel has gone on to sell thousands of copies in translation in Germany, was also released in Poland and this year will be released in Czech. Fans all over the world have asked me for years: “Will there be a new NightWhere story? When?”

Well, this summer, you’ll be able to finally read the next chapter in NightWhere!

In just three months, on May 9, 2023, my publisher Flame Tree Press will re-issue the original novel with a gorgeous new cover. A month later, on June 13, The Night Mother will at last appear! And here’s what they’ll look like:

The Night Mother picks up shortly after the events of NightWhere, and brings back many of the characters from the original book (including Mark, Rae and Selena), as well as introducing some new cast members. Both novels are available to pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, etc.
