• Interview: Steve Higgs

    Today I’m interviewing Steve Higgs, who writes the Blue Moon Investigation Agency series. It’s a humorous Paranormal cozy mystery, so needless to say I love it. Read on for more about him. Steve Higgs won his first award for writing when aged just ten. Of course, saying it was his first award suggests that there have been more since, which there haven’t. However, years of writing stories to entertain himself eventually resulted in something worth publishing and the Blue Moon Investigation Agency came to life. DR- How did you decide to write in your genre? SH- The truth is that I didn’t decide to write in a particular genre. I wrote what…

  • Newsletter Notes

    I’ve got no more events this year or really much of anything all winter. That’s good because the doctor says I need a rest. Walking pneumonia is no joke so I’m staying home for the holidays. I’ll be writing as much as I can, too. So I’m either hibernating like a sleepy bear shifter or hiding out like a vampire at high noon. I’m not sure which of those I’m feeling more this year. What I do know, however, is I had a sale on Be Counted for December the 26th. It’s over now but the whole series is on KU so read it if you got it! Winter is…

  • Read an excerpt from Body Count!

    Time for an excerpt from Body Count, book two of Supernatural Vigilante Society. “Get him!” I raise my voice for the first time tonight because there’s no way any of us will catch the bastard if I don’t. Unfortunately, that means the prey Scott, Esther and I are stalking gets spooked. “Aoooo!” Scott can’t use his words right now because he’s a six foot tall furry monster with giant clawed paws. He swings and misses. Yeah, my big scary pal is a teenage werewolf. “Waffletwat!” Esther’s right leg goes out from under her in a shower of green sparks. She’s a magician with no four-letter word filter. And apparently a klutz.…

  • Friday Fun!

    It’s time for an excerpt today. If you like what you read, click the picture to find the book. I barely know anything about vampires, even after I got turned into one. Yeah, I know. That makes me sound like a walking stereotype. At least it didn’t happen in High School or before I quit my job at Cranston PD to hang out my own shingle as a PI. But now everything’s different in new and special ways. In other words, it sucks. Pizza and beer are right out of my diet plan. So are long walks on the beach at sunrise. I can’t tell anyone I’m a vamp, so…

  • Upload Day!

    I’m so excited! Book three in the Supernatural Vigilante Society is uploading today. When it’s available on Amazon, I’ll post on Facebook and to my mailing list. It’s called Counting Costs. Have a look at the cover and description below. There’s no fortune in favors owed. After saving a king but losing a kingdom, Tino’s up to his fangs in debt. But he doesn’t owe money. A vampire’s word is his bond. When a rival, a witch, and a hunter all call in their markers at the same time, Tino’s suddenly got a metric ton promises to keep. To keep his vows, Providence’s  newest vampire must find missing memories, adopt an orphan,…

  • Better Off Undead

    Adventures In Book-getting, Glitch Edition

    I got zero words written on any project yesterday, but it was for a good reason. Preparing for Rhode Island ComiCon. I unpacked all my books, got my cards into them, took inventory, tested swag setup. But then, I hit a hiccup. Every single copy of Better Off Undead looks like MissingNo Pokemon. Gotta catch em all some time, I guess. Apparently, the file got corrupted going from the CreateSpace website to the printer, and green for that last third didn’t get printed. I called them and the tech team is quadruple checking the file in order to make sure the 15 replacement copies they send print correctly. Will they get here in…

  • The Longest Night Watch 2

    Have a Good Read and Help #ENDALZ!

    “An estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease in 2016. Of the 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer’s, an estimated 5.2 million people are age 65and older, and approximately 200,000 individuals are under age 65 (younger-onset Alzheimer’s).” www.alz.org/facts/ On March 12th, 2015, the writing world lost one of its greatest contemporary heroes – Sir Terrence “Terry” Pratchett. To honor his life, a group of writers published an anthology of stories that showcased his influence on their writing, and which also helped bring awareness of the disease that contributed to his end, Alzheimer’s Disease. That anthology was The Longest Night Watch, volume 1. It was a success, and the group–now…

    I’m here to tell you about Roundtable Redcap. It’s just about done, but I’m waiting on my cover. I’m expecting it, still, by the end of the month, September 1 at the latest.
