Lucifer’s bookmarks and stickers are here! I’ve been holding up all of the requests for bookmarks, so if you’ve been waiting, all of the requests will go out this week. Better late than never, right? Things are a bit hectic in my life right now, but I finally got around to ordering these, and they look great. Lucifer is so pretty. I just love looking at him!

All of my bookmarks and stickers are free. Details for ordering CAN BE FOUND HERE.

And speaking of free … I’m still collecting entries for my Valentine’s reader contest, which is giving away a chance to name a character in the next Vampires in America book (#12, as yet unnamed.) You don’t get to name the main character or the book itself, but your character will be more than just a walk-on, which means you’ll have dialogue. The character can be human or vampire, your choice. The winner will be mentioned in the Acknowledgments, and will receive a signed, print copy of the book. The entry rules follow:

1. Send an email to with VALENTINE 2017 on the subject line.
2. Return email address MUST BE A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS.
3. Include your first and last name in the body of the email.
4. All entries must be received by midnight, February 10, 2017.
5. One winner will be selected at random from among the entries received by the deadline.
6. Winner will be notified by return email, and will have five (5) days to respond, after which a new winner will be chosen.
7. One entry per person. All duplicate entries will be deleted.

There’s no need to describe your character now or when you enter. IF you win, I’ll let you know everything I need to know about your character, with plenty of time to respond. And that’s it. I figure only people who love my Vampires will want to have themselves (or someone they love) in the books.

Make sure you follow the entry rules if you want your entry to be counted!

I get questions … a reader wrote last week asking when the next Raphael & Cyn story would be coming. Well, this is how my schedule goes … once I finish KATO (which should release in late Spring/early Summer of this year – yay!) I’ll be going back to finish SHIFTER PLANET 2 (also yay!) Then comes the 5th Raphael & Cyn e-novella, which will take my Vampires to Europe. If you’ve read LUCIFER, then you know that Raphael and the other lords have decided to take the war to the Europeans, rather than wait for the next invader. Novella #5 will see Raphael and Cyn playing their part, and then Vampires in America Book 12 (!!!) will be the first full-length novel of the new, European, story arc. A whole new continent for my vampires to play on! So, that’s my writing schedule for this year. Seems like a lot. I should probably get started.

Except … sniff-sniff, cough-cough. Yep, I have a f#cking cold! How the hell this happened, I don’t know. I’m one of those people who actually uses the anti-bacterial wipes on the grocery cart, and the gel at the doctor’s office or in stores. Hell, I carry my own supply, and I’m a compulsive hand-washer. So how, people, how?? ::sigh:: Some sleep would probably help, but that’s not in the cards these days, which is probably a big factor in how I got sick in the first place.

But I’ve got that schedule to meet, so the work goes on! KATO is sooooo close to being finished! My guys and gals are in a desperate race against the forces of evil, and I can’t type fast enough to keep up with them. Soooooo close!

All right, I’m going to take my sickly, sniffling self to bed for a few hours, but then I’ll be up and racing toward the finish with Kato, Grace, and, of course, Nick. You can’t have a Warriors story without Nick!

Have a great week.
