Creepy Toys

In yesterday’s post I talked a bit about the Wendy Markland prequel short story that I’m working on. As research for that project, I have a question for you all:

What do you think is the creepiest toy currently for sale on today’s market? Please let me know in a comment, or e-mail via the “Contact” form on my website.

Thank you!

Prequel

Stake

Not long ago I mentioned on this blog/website that a brand new, original Wendy Markland short story would be included in the Umbral Press re-release of my first Wendy Markland book, “Predators or Prey?” A concept for that project has been agreed upon. This new short story will be a prequel to the Wendy Markland series as a whole, taking place before the events covered in “Predators or Prey?”. The working title of the piece is currently “It Isn’t Paranoia”. It will be included in the re-release along with the previously published short story, “Remnants”. Currently, “Predators or Prey?”, and “Remnants” are undergoing a new editing process. Meanwhile, I’m plotting out “It Isn’t Paranoia”, which is planned to have a far larger impact on Wendy Markland down the road…

Blurb

Hidden_Tribe_Cover

Here’s the official blurb for the upcoming (currently in edits) sasquatch novel by myself, and Desirée Lee titled “Hidden Tribe“.

Sasquatch—they live peacefully in the forests, and woodlands. They want little, or nothing, to do with humans, and our civilization. As a whole, sasquatch are tranquil, quiet beings who live harmoniously with nature, and avoid us.

But what happens when humans refuse to return the favor?

Researcher Alexia Hollander is about to find out. When she ventures into the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, seeking evidence of the elusive species, things quickly get out of hand. Another researcher deliberately gets in Alexia’s way. Campers, and hunters bumble in, adding their own disruptive presence to the quiet work that Alexia wants to perform.

With their home territory invaded by humans, a mated pair of sasquatch keep the intruders under close surveillance. They aren’t happy about the presence of the trespassers, and want them gone. Just how far will these normally restrained beings go to protect their family, and themselves? Alexia, and her unwanted companions are about to find out!

“Brothers at Arms” By Desirée Lee

brothersatarms

Coming soon – the re-release of “Brothers at Arms” by my very talented wife Desirée Lee:

For 250 years, the Arcée brothers have been in conflict. The vendetta between these two powerful vampires has shown no signs of resolve or waning. The concession made between the two is that the location of their ongoing war is moved every five decades to help prevent hapless mortals from discovering them. It was determined that the new locations would be chosen by a delegated Keeper, symbolized by a custom-made tarot card. Where the card goes, so do the Houses and also the war.
 
When the card changes hands, each House sends out Seekers, specially trained vampires who race against each other to be the first to discover the card’s new location. The first one to find the card and take control of the new keeper has the upper hand in the battle for that duration as they gain first foothold in the new city.
 
This year is a turning year. Julio Mendoza receives the card in the mail, unaware of its meaning. When he learns of the history of the card, he realizes he has been thrust in to a war that holds nothing for him, yet he cannot escape his fate. Still he will not accept his role meekly.
 
Michelle Bryson is a Seeker for the House of François Arcée. She is pitted against a rival from the House of Pierre Arcée to get to Julio first. Michelle is a young Seeker and if she fails to capture the Keeper, her life may be forfeited. What Michelle did not plan on was to find the Keeper to be a sexy, rebellious man who has a spirit in him unlike any Keeper she has seen in the past.
 
Julio knows the vampires are coming for him. He knows that he cannot hide forever. When the Seekers find him though, he cannot deny his attraction toward Michelle – an attraction that they will both pay dearly for if the Seeker from the House of Pierre Arcée has anything to do about it.

As you all know, I’m very happily married to bestselling, award-winning paranormal author Desirée Lee. Among the various projects we’re working on separately, and together, is the sasquatch novel, “Hidden Tribe”. Currently, the book is in edits. But a cover has been designed. We hope you all enjoy it!

Gnomes

As with yesterday’s post, today’s is another regarding something in the news that most of you may find a little odd. Look for the article here.

What do you all think? As always, I’m constantly looking for stories and accounts such as this. Given both personal interest, and the fact that I’m a bestselling, award-winning fantasy/horror/paranormal author I can’t help but pay attention to such things.
