Why do I love Halloween so much? Well, for one, the television is running a nearly constant variety of “documentary” and “hidden history” shows on vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, and anything else they can think up. I love these types of shows. Blame my dad. Of course, his interests in show of this nature were geared more toward science, politics, and world history. Nevertheless, he influenced me and even though my interests are decidedly darker he did teach me to not stop with only information given through one source. But that really doesn’t explain why I love Halloween.

First, BLOOD SECRETS, Book 2 in the Alexandra Sabian series, is once again with my wonderful editor. Yes, the revisions are done! Yay! It’s slated for release in summer 2011. As soon as I have a confirmed release date, I’ll let everyone know.
While I’m on the subjectof BLOOD SECRETS, be sure to check out the listing on Goodreads…which now includes the following description:
Alex allowed a case of murdered vamps to get personal and is suspended from the Federal Bureau of Preternatural Investigation. Now she’s facing an official inquiry but has a chance to redeem herself. The catch: She must once again work with Varik Baudelaire, her former mentor and ex-fiancé, as he spearheads a search for a missing college student. But Varik has been keeping secrets from Alex and his mysterious past is on a collision course with his present.
When Alex and Varik discover a carefully handcrafted doll at a crime scene, neither of them can see how close the danger really is or that a killer known as the Dollmaker has made Alex the object of his horrific desire. Now the only way out of the Dollmaker’s lair is through the twilight realm of the Shadowlands, where all secrets—for better or worse—will be revealed.
Yes, Alex and Varik are back and in trouble…a lot of trouble. I’m really excited about BLOOD SECRETS and hope this give y’all a little glimpse of what’s to come so you can be excited too.
My second big announcement has just been confirmed. I’ll actually have two releases next year! BLOOD SECRETS in the summer and a short story in THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF GHOST ROMANCE in the fall! The anthology will be released in the UK in September and the US in October. It’s my first major foray into the world of anthologies, and I’m very excited and honored to have been invited to be a part of it. How could I not be with a cover like this?
I’ll keep everyone updated on release dates and such as I can. Thanks to all my readers who have made BLOOD LAW a success and who have contacted me to let me know how much they enjoy the book. I hope I can continue to entertain you for many years to come.
