In case you weren’t aware of it – or had forgotten – I self-published my first three books – “Winters Rite“, “Well Wishes“, and “Gauntlet“. The first two are fantasy for teen/YA readers. The latter is an action adventure for older readers. All three of those books are still available in their original self-published versions, and formats.
Enjoy!

“Haze” Update

Good morning, everyone!

Yesterday I said that a couple of nights ago I had the first 100%, completely sleepless night on my life thanks to my fibromyalgia. I said that I spent the night while awake pondering two WIPs that I have going. One of those I talked about yesterday – “Mojito Cove”. the other of those projects was “Haze”. Or, more accurately, what I’m now planning to be the second book of the series. I’m still working on Book 1 right now.

This new idea for Book 2 will focus the series as a whole, and provide an overreaching plot for the series as a whole. I spent hours thinking this over. I’m excited about the idea. I think you all will be, too.

For now, I’m not going to say anything about it. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve had ideas stolen before after talking about them on-line. I don’t plan to make that mistake again. I will say that Haze is a big city vigilante crime fighter character. Hopefully she’s something that you’ve never seen before. But, with Book 1 still being a work in progress, I won’t say much right now. Hopefully soon!

Stay tuned!

Katherine McNamara

Desirée Lee, and I have been watching “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments” since the pilot episode aired. We both love the show, and are always eager for the next episode. Watching the show week-to-week, season-to-season, I’ve come to the conclusion that if any film project – be it TV, or movie – is made based upon my Wendy Markland novels (once they’re re-edited, and re-released) I would love to see Katherine McNamara play the role of Wendy Markland. She looks pretty much like I’ve always envisioned the character while writing her. And, having seen Katherine McNamara in so many episodes of “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”, I have no doubt that she could handle the role of Wendy Markland with no problems.

As there has been talk of various film versions of my Wendy Markland books since “Predators or Prey?” was first released back in 2007, I wanted to throw this out there. Again, I would love to see Katherine McNamara play Wendy Markland.

#SmallBusinessSaturday 2016

small_business_saturday

Normally, I don’t post to this blog on the weekends. But, seeing as how this is Small Business Saturday, I’ll make an exception. If you’re looking to buy books today, please consider supporting Umbral Press with the purchase of “Quintana Roo, Yucatan“, “Quagmire Fen“, and/or “Hidden Tribe“. My family, myself, and Umbral Press would greatly appreciate it!

Quintana Roo, Yucatan

Rikki Breitenberg is an archeologist in charge of the first team of American documenters allowed by the Mexican government to explore newly discovered Mayan ruins in the Yucatan. However, shortly after their arrival in Mexico, things go awry. Treacherous jungle, inclement weather and dangerous wildlife are only the beginning. When Rikki and her team run afoul of members of an ancient cult devoted to the worship of a bloodthirsty god, things take a terrifying turn for the worse. During their struggle for survival, the team makes a startling discovery that may rewrite the whole of human history. Will they survive to bring their amazing find back to civilization?

Quagmire Fen

Bog skulks are small, mysterious creatures with vicious teeth and claws. They turned up in Quagmire Fen some time ago. No one seems to know what they are or where they came from.

Spencer Foster is a young man who has lived his entire life in the poor backwater of Quagmire Fen. He despises the swamp, and wants only to leave and start a new life in the city with his girlfriend. But his callous drunkard of a father has other ideas.

Very soon, Spencer’s life is irrevocably changed. His destiny is now linked to the bog skulks and Quagmire Fen.

What are the bog skulks? Where did they come from? What is the connection between Spencer Foster and the odd beings he’s given so little thought to?

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!
