A Haunting at Marianwood is now available for preorder on Kindle!
Life is good for Dash Hammond. He's recently remarried his childhood sweetheart, Dr. Maevis Summers, and together they're raising his four-year-old son, T.J. in the Hammond family homestead in Clover Pointe, Ohio. A retired Army colonel, Dash now keeps himself busy fixing everything from a leaky faucet to an unsolved murder.
It is no wonder that his cousin Billy McCafferty calls on Dash for a road trip to Kentucky when his oldest sister is in trouble. The president of a religious order, Sister Miriam Patrice, Miri Pat to those who knew her before she took the veil, has been hearing things, seeing things and misplacing things. A very competent woman, she refuses to accept an unearthly reason for all this.
Marianwood, the motherhouse of the Sisters of the Blessed Mother of God, is located on an old plantation thought to be haunted by its original inhabitant, Miss Victoria Harris, who is rumored to prowl the grounds and cemetery in search of her murdered beau.
When the Ohio contingent arrives, they discover that things are not as simple as your ordinary haunting.
In a battle of wits, will the victor be supernatural or a very corporeal retired Army colonel?
The book will be available in print and on Kindle October 18th!

I'd say it was hard to believe it has been so long since my last post, but that would be lying. We've been terribly busy with personal issues, mostly connected with our families. It has been an emotionally and physically exhausting time.
On a slightly better note, we also had an American wedding in May, which we hope will better preserve our rights if the Supreme Court or Congress turns against us.
Despite the above issues, we did succeed in getting Strangely Funny IX published. It's available in print and Kindle from Amazon, and features stories from the usual suspects plus some newcomers. B.F. Vega's "Blood of Thespius" is one of my favorites from the new bunch.
In other news: we will be releasing a novel from E. M. Munsch. Stay tuned for the cover reveal, slated for this Friday!
Our third book for the year, Sparky of Bunker Hill and the Cannibal Caper by Rosalind Barden, is awaiting final edits.
