Bitter Harvest of a Dying Bloom Available Now!

Here it is, friends! The third book in the series is finally done, and available as either a paperback or Kindle edition. FINALLY!

This book was a challenge in so many ways. I think I first finished it in 2002, but had been working on it, off and and on, starting around 1997 or 98. I did manage to go from point a to point b, then decided I was simply too young at the time, to have written such a book WELL. I planted seeds, then had to go out and live my life a bit longer, and experience aging and loss and illness before I could really do this one justice.

I think I managed it this time, and since I am my own harshest critic, this means it has lived up to some unreasonably high standards.

First review so far:

"Began reading Book III Tuesday morning. Yes, you've done it again; I'm sucked in once more, sat right there at the table with Tamlin & Ami as they discussed Neal. Hate when I have to put it down! are an amazing talent!"

Curious? Give it a whirl. Even if you haven't read the first two books, don't worry. The really cool thing about all of them is that each one can stand on its own. You can read one, or all, in sequence, or out of sequence. It doesn't matter.

Of course, I would be thrilled and delighted if you read all three, in order, gave me glowing reviews on Amazon, and kept begging me for Book IV,;s really up to you. I hope you enjoy the read.

And yes, I have begun Book IV, which will be called "Western Wynde." Do you know the old poem?

O Western Wynde, when wilt thou blow
That the small rain down can rain?
Christ, that my love were in my arms
And I in my bed again!

At some point, I will share some excerpts on my website. Stay tuned!

Lovecraft fans will adore this one!

Good Lord! Don't read this late at night, alone in the dark, unless you want to sleep with the lights on for the next ten years!

A community under attack by - what? No one knows, but it moves methodically, and one family at the heart of the story knows they are next. Piece by piece, they assemble the puzzle, but will it be too late?

The descriptions are terrifying. I couldn't put it down. You won't be able to, either. Read it!


Memoir of a Death Angel

Here is a fascinating read for all you spiritual/spooky-minded folks. Check it out!

Anagnost delves into Greek Orthodoxy and mysticism with such depth. The story is vivid and exciting, and paints pictures and action like scenes from a film in the reader's head. One can really see/hear situations as they unfold. There is such a beautiful poignancy to Persephone's relationship with Yiayia Friday. Persephone's visits with the priests are so evocative, and in particular, I was delighted by Brother Bartholomew, whose sole function is to curse things that go wrong. He is quite inventive, and so extreme as to be humorous at times.

This really is a book like no other, and one I will re-read over the years. I expect I will uncover new treasures each time.

Available Now!

After months of careful, preparation, I'm happy to announce that Like Leaves, We Touch, Book 1: O Fortuna is now available for purchase in a really nice trade 6 x 9 paperback edition.

It took some time, but all the formatting gaffes have been eliminated, and I am well-satisfied with the final proof copy.

Not everyone either has, or likes to read on, a Kindle, and luckily CreateSpace provides a nice alternative for authors who wish to publish in both formats.

If you decide to purchase and read, thank you! Feel free to contact me with comments/feedback any time. All electronic contact info is listed on the back page of the book.
