The third Lycanthropy Files book Blood's Shadow will be coming out electronically on November 25. If you want to catch up on the series, now is a good time because The Mountain's Shadow and Long Shadows ebooks are now on sale for 99 cents and $1.99, respectively, at all ebook retailers (see links above for excerpts and sale links).
I'm now on a blog tour in anticipation and celebration, and today's stop is at the Feed Me In Books blog, which gave Blood's Shadow a lovely review:
"This is the 3rd book in the series, and while I haven’t read the first 2 yet, I do believe I will be going back and buying them..."
10/29/14 An interview at Diane's Book Blog. She asked some fun and interesting questions like,
What is your favorite part of the story, Blood’s Shadow, and the overall Lycanthropy Files series?
With each of the Lycanthropy Files books, I’ve tried to expand the universe based on the characters’ perceptions. Essentially, they start off in The Mountain’s Shadow as feeling like they’re the only ones with the challenges of Chronic Lycanthropy Syndrome, or CLS, and the book itself focuses on the new sufferers in a little enclave in the Ozark Mountains. Then in Long Shadows, the world expands to wizards, which are hinted at in the first book, and magic. Finally, in Blood’s Shadow, other paranormal beings like ghosts and fairies reveal themselves, and it was great for me to be along as the author as my characters discovered these aspects of their world...
10/28/14 Suzanne Johnson's Preternatura blog, where I'm allowing one of my minor characters to talk about Samhain, the Celtic holiday that led to Halloween. Comment for a chance to win a copy of Blood's Shadow.
When Suzanne and I talked about what would be a good topic for this guest blog post, we thought it would be fun to talk about how my werewolves celebrate Halloween, but the more I thought about it, the more I just couldn’t make it fit. In my previous post on identity, I talked about how it’s always Halloween in my head. For my lycanthropes, who spend most of their time pretending to be human to fit in to the world, they probably wouldn’t want to dress up as yet something else. So, they just celebrate the pagan feast of Samhain, which is pronounced Sow-when, and which is the root holiday of Halloween.
In my third Lycanthropy Files book Blood’s Shadow, I brought the series to Scotland, which I’ve been fascinated with since starting to date my husband, who is of Scottish heritage...
10/27/14 Jill Archer's blog. Here's a preview of the post:
Robert R. McCammon has the dubious honor of having written one of the few summer reading books I actually enjoyed, Boy’s Life, which was published in 1991. He has an amazing way with description, and the book sucked me in and made me forget I was doing something I didn’t want to do. To clarify, I have always loved to read, but I have a rebellious streak and having someone tell me to do it makes me not want to. I admit I didn’t immediately read more of his books because the horror designation stopped me.
Since I write about lycanthropes and it’s close to Halloween, I thought it would be fun to do a Character on the Couch analysis of Allied spy Michael Gallatin, aka Mikhail Gallatinov, the main character from McCammon’s The Wolf’s Hour...
