One Week, Early Halloweens and Other Notions

One week from today my first novel, The Dark Wife, will be released! It’s so surreal and exciting, I have no words. 🙂 SO much needs to happen between this moment and a week from this moment, but I know it’s possible, and with the help of the universe, my awesome and amazing wife and LOTS AND LOTS OF TEA, ANYTHING is possible. Right? 😀

(Please note that the barista messed up my order this morning and gave me a hot coffee instead of a hot tea. I am stubborn, and drinking said coffee even though I gave it up six months ago. EVERYTHING is VERY EXCITING right now. This may be partially influenced by the caffeine.)

In order to learn all of the formatting essential to any indie author, I’ve released one of my original fairy tales. Just under 11,000 words in length, it’s priced at only .99 cents! It is now on sale at and, and will soon be available for other eReaders and in a print option! Details below~

Hallow’s Eve: A Halloween Fairy Tale

“Once upon a Hallow’s Eve, there was a witch. She had long red hair, a pretty face, and a propensity for utterly failing at witchery. Her name was Laluna.”

This tongue-in-cheek original fairy tale follows the adventures of Laluna, a young witch who inherits her grandmother’s potion shop. It’s Halloween, the most bewitching night of the year, but even the most well intentioned spells have a habit of going badly for Laluna. When a charm for true love unearths a zombie, she must make amends with the help of her vampire best (almost more than) friend and cupcakes no ghoul can resist. “Hallow’s Eve” is a short, lively, light-hearted romp across a most unusual Halloween night.

As a somewhat side note, my lovely wife Jenn and I are going to be at the Maryland Faerie Festival this weekend, helping out at my friend Pete’s tent, Fairy Majik and Bardsworth–if you’re in the area, please stop by and say hi! Just on the heels of our yearly pilgrimage to the Spoutwood May Day Fairie Festival, we’ve never had occasion to go to the Maryland one, and we’re tres excited. 🙂 Hope to see you there!

(And, to reiterate: OMG ONE WEEK. 😀 😀 :D)
