I’m pleased to announce that my latest novel, Troubled Souls, was named the winner in the Horror Category of the 2013 Beverly Hills Book Awards this weekend. This was the BHBA’s first event, though it’s my understanding entries are already underway for the 2014 awards season.
To directly quote the site, “The BHBA celebrates excellence in presentation, from cover and interior design, promotional text, aesthetic components and other factors that demonstrate outstanding presentation, in addition to the writing.“
From now until the end of May, the book is available exclusively through Amazon as part of their KDP Select program for Kindle and traditional print. Effective June 1st, it will again be available for purchase via Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble Nook, Kobo Books, Sony Reader and other ebook suppliers, in addition to Amazon.
As always, my thanks to those of you who’ve been so supportive; to Ellen Reid & the contest judges, and, of course, to Kelly O’Neill, for her cover design.
Thank you and happy reading!

The last time we saw (Pastor) Eric Kade, he had boarded a ferry leading him away from Bishop’s Island and aimed for dismantling The Progeny, the sect that was determined to destroy him.
How’s the ol’ boy been keeping himself busy you may wonder?
Let us catch up with him and see, in this exclusive free short story.
(and Happy Valentine’s Day!)

AN EXCLUSIVE SHORT STORY
Our story begins in the fourteenth year of the new millennium, in the second month and on the eighth day, when the deadliest weapon is an exile.

A hospice nurse adjusted the pillows behind the frail shoulders of her sole patient and exited the bedroom of a dimly lit apartment somewhere in Manitoba, Canada. On her way out, she smiled respectfully to the young guest occupying the claustrophobic room’s southwest corner. None had visited her patient, Markus Tobin, even though he was well into the last days of life on this earth.
