Christmas Lites III Now Available

CHRISTMAS LITES III, an anthology I'm amazingly proud to be a part of, is now available.  Of course, I'm proud because a little story of mine has been included alongside so many other fantastic authors' stories, but more than that, I'm proud about what the book stands for--100% of the proceeds will go directly to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV).

I don't need to mention the importance of eliminating domestic violence.  You all know how devastating it can be to someone's life.  But with all the holiday hoopla going on, it's easy to forget that a lot of people out there are scared and suffering.

Here's a way you can help:

Twenty-one of us writer types got together and wrote a book.  It's 4 bucks. (Print edition will be more, though I don't think it's available yet.)  Not only do you get some great holiday stories, you're also helping those woman and children affected by domestic violence.  Way I see it: win-win for everyone.

My contribution is a special Eve Hallows short called Eve Hallows and the Home Invader.  If you're a fan of the series, the story fits neatly at the end of Book 2, EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHADOWS.  The story also stands by itself, if you're not familiar with the series.

I've just started reading the anthology myself, and I'm already blown away by the stories I've read so far. Seriously, there's something for everyone in these pages.  Here's a full list of the authors involved in the project:

Addison Moore
A.F. Stewart
Amy Eye
Angela Yuriko Smith
Ben Warden
Cassie McCown
Elizabeth Evans
J.A. Clement
JG Faherty
Jonathan Tidball
M.L. Sherwood
Monica La Porta
Ottilie Weber
Patrick Freivald
Phil Cantrill
Ron C. Nieto
S. Patrick Pothier
Tricia Kristufek
Vered Ehsani
Brandon Eye bonus story
C.S. Splitter bonus story

A Fall Recipe from Eve

Every once in a while I receive an email asking if I'll ever create a recipe book of the foods found in Gravesville.  Eh, probably not.  I like my readers and prefer not to subject them to stomach viruses.  I did, however, write a post a while ago that for whatever reason never went live.  So here's Eve talking about one of her favorite Gravesvillian recipes: hot pumpkin.    

Eve: Thank you, writer person. As you probably know, my all time favorite drink in the cold weather is hot pumpkin. Now, this is a recipe that's been passed down for like hundreds of years in my family, so let's just keep this between you and me, okay?

RG: Um, Eve. You know this is going on the internet, right? A lot of people are probably going to see it.

Eve: I don't interrupt you when you're doing your guest post thingies, do I?  And somebody should, because you try to act all important like, Oh, look at me, I'm an author. It's really embarrassing.

RG: I just wanted to warn you.

Eve: Anyway, before I was interrupted … oh yeah. So, to make a really good hot pumpkin, you need a cauldron, preferably heated with green fire … because it looks perfectly horrible at night --Why are you looking at me like that, Mr. Grown.

RG: It's Gray. Robert Gray. And I just wanted to let you know we don't have green fire in our world. Cauldrons are pretty hard to find, too.

Eve: Fine, then be boring and use a regular pot and a stove. Next, take some goblin milk, about 3 cups--What!

RG: We don't have goblin milk here, either. We use regular milk. From cows.

Eve: Cows? Really? That's adorable! Well, use whatever milk you have and pour it into your boring pot and put the boring fire on medium until your disgusting milk starts to simmer. Then, add your pumpkin, but make sure it's not alive, because--Okay, now what?

RG: You stuff a whole pumpkin into the pot?

Eve: Of course not. You melt it first. I thought everyone knew that.

RG: Yeah, I think maybe a can of pumpkin puree would work better.

Eve: So do you want to finish my family's secret recipe, or should I?

RG: Sorry.

Eve: Then, pour in the pumpkin and add in your spices.  Most of them can be found in your local graveyard, but--Oh, my Jack, now what?

RG: Nothing.  Keep going.

Eve:  Then add chunks of chocolate. I like white chocolate for mine, particularly from Treats n' Treats, but I suppose you can use whatever chocolate you can find. About ten pounds should do the trick.

RG: She means about six ounces.

Eve: Did I say six ounces? No. I said ten pounds. You can never have enough chocolate. But it's only my family recipe. What do I know? So after you add all the ingredients, mix it up real good until the chocolate is melted. Then, pour the mix into a giant mug and finish it off with a huge scoop of whipped cream. You can even add more chocolate shavings on top of the whipped cream, which is how I like mine, but it's totally up to you.

RG: And there you have it, folks, Eve's no-longer-secret hot pumpkin recipe.

Eve: You just had to get the last word in, didn't you? You're impossible.

Eve Hallows and the Book of Shivers Is Out Today

Just in time for Halloween, EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHIVERS (Book 3 in the Nightmare Series) is now available for your Kindle.  In the coming weeks, the print edition will be out, as well.  So find yourself a comfy couch, grab a mug of hot pumpkin, and enjoy!

So far, Eve's summer vacation has been uneventful, but when her grandparents—traveling all the way from the monster world known as Gravesville—appear at her doorstep, she learns that the URNS Director has gone missing. Worse, a new director, bent on destroying humans, has taken over URNS.

Eve and her family are no longer safe in the human world, and as they race to escape this new threat, Eve stumbles into a trap, which forces her back to Gravesville along with her family and friends. But once there, everything goes adorably wrong, and her best chance to get out of this mess is to seek out The Book of Shivers and the elusive author Sedrick Creach—the only creature who knows the secrets of the Nightmare Books. Unfortunately for Eve, searching for Sedrick and the next book in the series will reveal uncomfortable details about her own murky past.

Once again, Eve and her friends find themselves on an incredible adventure—one that involves underground battles with bloodthirsty creatures, a lightning-fueled train, and some unexpected new allies.

Hilarious and bone-chilling, this third book continues the story of an unlikely hero trying to save not one, but two worlds … This time around, though, Eve's not sure she can even save herself.

Updates and other things that go bump in the night

I've been pretty quiet on the update front, so I thought I'd let everyone know what you'll be seeing from Eve in the coming months.  Here it goes, in no particular order.

Eve Hallows and the Book of Shrieks Audiobook — Yup, the awesomely talented Anne Gill will be bringing Eve and her family to life in the unabridged audio version.  I've listened to about 18 chapters so far, and I'm totally in love with it.  The audiobook should be ready to go by the end of the summer and will be available at Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.  Stay tuned, I'll post more information and possibly some samples as we get closer to the release date.

Eve Hallows and the Book of Shivers —  I'm happy to report that I've just sent off a bunch of pages to my editor, which makes me both immensely happy and terribly frightened.  What does that mean to you?  Absolutely nothing.  But we are getting closer to the release of book 3 in the Nightmare Series, and this one is sure to knock your socks off ... or at least bunch your socks up in the front of your shoes.  If everything goes according to plan, we're looking at a late August-early September release.

Book Signing—If you're in the Poconos, PA area on Saturday, July 27, stop by the Eastern Monroe Public Library for their annual book expo.  I'll be there signing books along with a bunch of other cool authors.  Doors open at 10 a.m. and close at 3 p.m.
