Quarterfinalist in the 2019 Screencraft Horror Screenplay contest for Winterbay Abbey screenplay! I just had to put this up, as it's a pretty cool achievement for my co-author, Davonna Juroe, and I. We adapted our novel Winterbay Abbey: A Ghost Story, last year and decided to enter a few contests, and we were surprised, and delighted, to hear that we made the first cut. The feedback we received from the judges was both encouraging (very) and helpful. Almost all positive, they thought it would make a "fine feature." Good news.
Here's to more good news in the future.

International Bestseller!

Just this past few days, my co-author on our gothic ghost story, Winterbay Abbey, Davonna Juroe and I found our book moving up the sales lists. I can now say that Winterbay Abbey is officially an International Bestseller! We made the top 100 paid charts on Amazon in the U.S. (#40), Canada (#4), Australia (#2), Barnes and Noble (#8), and Ibooks, and I've got pics to prove it.

Jodi Picoult? Great company!

Best seller!

Move over, Neil Gaiman!
This is all very exciting and new. We hit the charts and a lot of people got a chance to see Winterbay Abbey. The more people who read it, the better. That's why we wrote it. I sincerely hope all those people who took a chance on our book enjoy the read and never regret taking that chance.

Thanks everyone. There's more fun stuff to come.

Ghostville Reading

Lost in Ghostville fans, if you happen to be in Spokane, WA this October 29, stop by Auntie's Bookstore @4:00 pm and see me teach how to find ghosts.
I'll read a bit from Ghostville, answer some questions, and of course we'll search the store for any spirits who might be haunting the old building. Should be great fun! See you there!
