All right, everyone. I’m sure a lot of you have heard by now, but just in case you haven’t, one of our community needs help. Christy Duke’s husband John has been recently diagnosed with bone cancer and will be undergoing aggressive chemo. The cancer is in his femur, which means it’s prone to breakage. Long story short, they’re in desperate need of adding a ramp so he can get in and out of their house safely.
So here’s my offer: if you donate any amount on their You Caring page by the end of February and mention me in the comments (so I know who is interested), you’ll be entered into a random drawing. The lucky winner will have their fictional counterpart murdered in the next SPECTR book. So if you’ve always dreamed of being immortalized as a victim of demonic forces, here’s your chance.
The entire first series of SPECTR is now in audio with the release of Summoner of Storms! Once again Brad Langer brought it home with his terrific narration. Currently available on Audible and iTunes, but with Amazon coming as soon as it works its way through their system.
Ever wondered how a Wimshurst machine operates? Want to see a video of Franklin bells in action? I have a Pinterest page with links to videos and some cool photos I collected that I think you might enjoy. Happy clicking!
I wanted to put a quick note here about a possibly triggering situation in Restless Spirits. If you don’t want to know any plots points, look away now!
Spoiler Space, just in case
Okay, I wanted to point out that there is a scene in the book where a trans secondary character is outed against her will. Her story is far more than this, but the incident occurs. It seems like it’s been an extra-shitty few weeks, where every time I look online there is some kind of transphobic douchebaggery going on. The absolute last thing I want to do is to blindside someone with a triggery scene. I want my readers to feel better after reading a book, not harmed. So be forewarned and decide if you’re okay with reading accordingly.
(And because I know someone will ask, no, AFAIK it hasn’t yet been an issue. But it occurred to me today that it could be, so.)
Please take care of yourselves out there. I love you.
