Celebrate: Bloodwalker Contract! & Giveaways


I'm thrilled to report that BLOODWALKER has a publisher!  Freedom Fox Press, an imprint of Dancing Lemur Press, owned by L. Diane Wolfe, will publish BLOODWALKER in October 2016!

Freedom Fox is the hybrid publishing division of Dancing Lemur Press and allows its authors to retain control of cover, price, and most decisions while distributing the books to vendors and helping with marketing and PR.  Dancing Lemur Press, the traditional publishing division, has published all four of Alex J. Cavanaugh's SciFi Cassa Series books, IWSG anthologies, and recently published Beverly Stowe McClure's Under A Purple Moon.

I'm so happy to be in such great company!  Being an author with Dancing Lemur/Freedom Fox will be like being in a family where I know and respect both the publisher and the other authors.

There'll be lots to do in the coming months, like finalizing design, proofing the galley, getting out ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) to book bloggers and reviewers, and scheduling a book tour for the release.

I'm stoked!!  Woohoo!!
