Just My Crazy Side (Halloween)

Since I took care of business the other day about "Requiem" being out, I need to do my Halloween posts, starting with my visit to "Spirit of Halloween" store that pops up this time of year in any available vacant store. So, here we go...


This is me hanging out with some of my friends. They're on the thin side, but boy can they dance!



This was part of the haunted bridge you crossed. 
Children who had come in with their parents were having a ball activating these things that stood or 
hovered over the display. They spoke too. If you had money to burn, and wanted to scare the crap out of trick-or-treaters, you could do a number with these things.
Especially the nine-foot clown or the werewolf that had a horrific snarly growl and shook the tree next to him.



This little girl rode her bike and her eyes glowed blue. I think yellow eyes would have been more effective myself. But she was on a track and moved back and forth. All of these had a pad which you stepped on to activate them.

And this vacuum cleaner was motion activated and was sort of cool. Too bad it didn't actually suck up dirt. I could use something like this around the house. The thing on left side is a giant spider that jumped out at you. You could use one of those for Jehovah Witnesses who come to the door too often.

 And, finally this skull, and other things like it, moved the jaw as it spoke something horrific. I think it was a doorknocker. Clever stuff. If only I had money and could have a party at the house...
Nah. Maybe not. I'd wind up calling 911 so many times, I'd ware out the operator.
Anyway, had fun for free at this place.
Next time I'll show off what I did around the house. Not much, but I'd like to share.

Requiem Book 6 in Series Now Available!

Yes. It's finally out! I'm slowly getting the series out one by one. Have two more. But here is Requiem!


Bill is back, literally from the dead. Is he vampire? Human? Or something more? His objective is to find and protect the sibyl. But this may prove to be harder than ever since the demon Naamah has vowed vengeance against her and enlists the talents of a witch to help.

After the takeover, Tremayne is once again in power, calling Sabrina and Vasyl to his realm. His reasons for summoning the rival rogue vampire becomes apparent soon enough. Vasyl is asked to take over the eastern half of the U.S., while Tremayne goes to take on the western half, vacated by the vanquished (and very dead), Ilona.

Sabrina is uncertain of ramifications, and where this puts her in the hierarchy, but she knows her husband is now a very powerful and important vampire in Tremayne's realm. But she barely has time to get comfortable in this new position when she's attacked by Lief, who wants revenge for her having killed his mate. The V.I.U. (Vampire Investigation Unit), ignores the situation and lets Lief go. Showing whose side they're on.

More than ever, Sabrina has to become pregnant, Tremayne is adamant about it, and when it looks as though she's about to go through with it, her spilled blood causes Vasyl to vacate and abdicate his new realm before he is tempted beyond the point of no return.

A breach in security at Tremayne Towers causes Sabrina, and others to fight off some nasty demons, but she is injured and needs a quick infusion of vampire blood to save her life. New comer Stefan Capella comes in as a major player in the sibyl's life. The secret behind who he really is is revealed, and although he brings on the charm, Sabrina isn't crazy about where this will ultimately lead.

After Bill saves Sabrina's friends from vampire attack, he soon infiltrates the Towers, and eventuality finds Sabrina. His attempt at staying out of sight fails, but everything and everyone comes together as they attempt to route the witch from the Towers, but when a clever demon vanishes with her, Bill and Dante are the only ones who can follow, and she is suddenly in Naamah's clutches. Are they too late to save her? The adventure continues.

Of Sorceresses and Vampires-Welcome to my World

Hi, all. I've been busy!
First of all, I've worked on books and garden all summer long. 
I've got a few more in line, and I'm getting ready to send another to my publisher. Finally, have gotten Spell of Dark Castle finished (it was already done, just needed a little editing). This is sequel to Spell of the Black Unicorn, my premiere work, which I self-published in 2008. It took me 5 years to write/develop, and rewrite. I did everything I could to get an agent--no agent would take it. So, with self-publishing becoming the norm (even before you could do it on Amazon), I chose one and got it out there. Even drew my own cover for it.

But that was then.
This is now.

The story inside me, I went on to write the next novel in series. This has been written, waiting back stage, while I decided to work on my vampire series (Sabrina Strong).
I hope to see Spell of Dark Castle finally published, and am excited to see what sort of cover it will get!

In the meantime, I'm awaiting Requiem (6th Sabrina Strong novel), to pop up on Amazon. Here is the cover:

And when this all gets into the works, I'll be sending him my second Lainey Quilholt mystery, An Invitation to Kill. Currently, I'm working through it, and hope to be done in October.
