Carmilla’s Ghost: One Year’s Retrospective

This will be a brief post. Yes, I’m still waiting to hear back from Amazon as to why the paperback edition of Crossroad Blues is not available on their website outside of third-party sellers when the paperback is available at all other online booksellers.

This post contains the first excerpt from my upcoming novel, Crossroad Blues. This snippet occurs later in the book, when Sam and Destiny are at the office.

Let’s Talk Character

Characters. We know them. We love them. We love to hate them. Sometimes, we just flat out hate them. Some are dynamic, and some are flat. Characters are the central actors in any work of fiction.
