The WindDemon Novels

I am happy to announce EvilWind, the third novel in this SF/Futuristic series is now available in print joining both BloodWind and DarkWind. BloodWind...the tale of Prime Reaper Kamerone Cree...has been my all-time bestseller and was on the Hard Shell Word Factory bestseller list within the top five positions every quarter for over a year. It was a bestseller at Fictionwise for many months and has won several awards. It was the first book in which my signature Reapers appeared.

Favorite Time of the Year

Happy Autumn, Everyone!

This is my favorite time of year and it seems this is when I am always the most productive. There is something clean and rejuvenating about Autumn. The leaves are falling; the wind is blowing; the colors are vibrantly changing. If you're lucky enough to be in a part of the country where there is a definitive change of seasons it is a gloriously beautiful time. From the air, the land looks like a patchwork quilt done in shaes of rust, gold, scarlet, and brown. Corn mazes are being prepared and the smell of smoldering leaves has a perfume all its own.

Since Autumn began this year, I have had numerous new releases in either ebook or print. WindRetriever, the ninth book in the WindLegends Saga Series was released fom New Concepts Publishing. There is only one more book left in this sword and sorcery adventure saga and the HEA ending is going to knock your socks off!

Also from NCP, of my bestselling novels of all time...was re-released. Eric McCormack was the inspiration for the demon Syntian Cree. This story was written in the small town of Milton, Florida .

WolfWind, the sequel to my very popular Spring Wind werewolf short story at Fictionwise came out. Spring Wind stayed on the Fictionwise bestseller list for dark fantasy for well over six months. At one point, it was in the top ten of the overall bestsellers. Look for it at New Concepts Publishing.

Ellora's Cave released WyndRaider just yesterday and if you're a Karl Urban and Vin Diesel fan, you'll recognize the two heroes of this novel as having been my inspiration. Today, EvilWind...the third novel in the WindDemons Trilogy...was released in print.

Yes, this is MY time of year. For me, the howling wind through the blades of the combines bringing in the corn and beans is a treat to my ears...almost as delicious as the tinkle of windchimes. I see a candy or caramel apple and begin to wax poetic about the season. The scent of burning leaves, the wafting of the smoke, the leaves playing tag amidst the denuded branches are like an aphrodisiac undulating through my blood. Ghosts and goblins await just around the corner and all is right with my world.

And this, too, is the time of my life when frost is beginning to appear in my once-brown hair. The sands of time are cutting light furrows at my eyes and are beginning to bracket my mouth. I am nearing the autumn of my days and I can hear the whispers of those I have lost calling to me in the cooling winds.

So tell me, my pretties: what is your favorite time of the year? When are you at your highest level of inspiration and productivity? What is in the air that makes you feel alive and want to throw your hat á la Mary Tyler Moore? What time of the year bums you out and makes you want to bury your head in your blankie and retreat?
