Today is Launch Day: Download THE FAMILY TREE now!


My 8th novel is now available!  I know a bunch of you on the list have already pre-ordered the book, and I really appreciate it! I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of the new story.

I want to make sure this one gets a good, visible bump — heck, maybe a leap onto a bestseller’s chart! And the best way to do that, is to make sure a lot of people download it all at once on its release day. And since Amazon owns the bulk of the e-book release space, that’s the nut to crack. So if you have enjoyed my past novels, please log on to Amazon today, and download a copy of The Family Tree for your Kindle! Or…order a copy of the real, dead-tree book (my personal favorite kind.)

THE DEAL: I’ll even offer an incentive for acting today. Anyone who sends me a receipt from Amazon showing that they’ve ordered a copy of the book today (or pre-ordered it prior to today – you guys were out in front!), will be entered into a drawing to win a signed copy of your choice of one of my other (dead tree) books. Covenant, Sacrifice, The 13th, Siren, The Pumpkin Man, NightWhere, Violet Eyes, Needles & Sins, Vigilantes of Love, Cage of Bones. Name it, and it’s yours, if your name is pulled from The Great Pumpkin.

THE CATCH: To enter, you have to grab yourself a copy of The Family Tree today from Amazon. And then email me your entry to Pretty easy, really.  Entries must be purchased by Noon Central Time on Wednesday, Oct. 8. I’ll hold the drawing for the winner on Wednesday night.

Contest or no, I do hope you’ll check this one out… and hope you’ll enjoy the story!

Here’s the back cover description of the new book:

Its roots are old…and twisted!
The blood of the tree is its sap. It has sustained Scott Belvedere’s family for generations. It’s the secret ingredient behind the family’s intoxicating ale and bourbon, among other elixirs. But only when Scott inherits The Family Tree Inn, deep in the hills of Virginia, does he learn anything about his family, its symbiotic history, or the mammoth, ancient tree around which the inn is literally built. And after he stumbles upon the bony secrets hidden in its roots, while in the welcoming arms of the innkeeper’s daughter, he realizes that not only is blood thicker than water—it’s the only thing that might save him from the hideous fate of his ancestors…

Spend Halloween with me and The Family Tree!  ?
Yours in Dark Arts,
