Drawing the Dead on Sale (January Writing Update)

It’s a brand new year, and I have a lot in the writing pipeline. The last few years have been pretty thin on releases and I am going to remedy that this year. So, to that end, I am planning to do a monthly update on all things me and writing.

I want to make this worth your while, so here’s the deal. Each one of these monthly updates will have one or more of these:

  • A Release
  • A Deal
  • A Freebie

A good month will contain all three! Hopefully that will keep you all engaged and feeling good about giving me a bit of your precious time.

So, for January 2018, we are starting with a deal and a chance at a freebie.

Both are for the ebook version of Drawing the Dead.

Chance at a Freebie: If you get your ebooks from Amazon, I am giving away 30 books (with a 1 in 10 chance of winning). Don’t worry, nothing onerous here, you just need to follow me on Amazon. Enter the giveaway now.

Deal: The ebook for Drawing the Dead is on sale for $0.99 (down from $4.99) until 1/31/2018. If you haven’t read this one yet, it’s in the same world as Shuffled Off, but focus on the living interacting with the dead. It’s got a medium with unique abilities, a rich man with a secret, a romance, and is set in Hawaii.

You can find the book here:

Amazon.com: eBook.
BarnesAndNoble.com:  eBook.
Kobo.com: eBook.

If you haven’t read this book and your thing is reading paperbacks, I don’t want to leave you out. Just reply to this email and I’ll get you a coupon code for 50% the print edition from my store (and I’ll even sign it if you like).

Still curious about Drawing the Dead? Here’s how one reader described it on Goodreads:

At first glance, I thought Drawing the Dead would be rather morbid and depressing. However, after reading it, I realized it was far from that. The main character, Viki, had so many layers and was fascinating to read about. The story was captivating and unlike anything I have read. It was exactly my kind of novel. I loved every second of it and would definitely like to read more about Viki. I also kept thinking that the novel would make a great movie, as the characters were very likable. I highly recommend this novel. It is a quick read, and it will leave you wanting more.

And here’s the offical blurb:

Life and death are not that far apart…

What happens when we die? Viki Dobos knows. Her job is to help people talk to their dearly departed. She draws the deceased, and they come to life on the page… briefly. When a rich Russian man hires her and whisks her away to Hawaii, everything changes. The rich man wants her to do the forbidden, and a handsome man she meets on the beach needs her more than he knows. Viki will have to confront her past, face her fears, and risk everything to help them.

From the author of A Ghost’s Memoir series (Shuffled Off and To Be A Fool) comes an unforgettable story of life, death, and the strange places in between.

On the Launch Pad

  • I just sent my next novel, Seeing Forever, off to the proofreader. More coming on that soon.
  • I have a short story in an upcoming anthology that should be out soon.

Ok, that’s it for January, I’ll be back with an update next month. Hope you all find a good book to read to start the year off right.

Thank you!
