Working on Death Lessons

Death Lessons has a lot of jokes in it. Really. It’s a funny dark fantasy about the coming demon Armageddon. Think Buffy, but with more swordplay. Like the first book in the Ghosts & Demons Series, The Haunting Lessons, it’s full of action and misty wistfuls roaming New York City.

Then there are moments like this, where Tamara Smythe comments on her part-time gig working at a funeral home and picking up bodies from crime scenes:

There might not be enough leftovers to piece together a whole skull, of course, but that puzzle was a bony jigsaw for the funeral directors.

Happy Tuesday!

NEW THL COVER JAN 2015 COMPLETE

Book reviews: In case you didn’t know…

Sometimes when I review a book, I do a video review. Yes, you can do that on Amazon. For instance, yesterday I gave a review to Audiobooks for Indies by Simon Whistler. If you have the time, video reviews are great.

However, if you don’t have the time, a review doesn’t have to be an elaborate, divinely crafted time suck. Just a sentence or two saying you want to join the cult and have the author’s babies will do just fine.

Seriously, though, if you enjoyed a book, please do spread the word. That’s how the last book makes the next book possible.

For your consideration. Thanks! Now go have a great day, or make it a great day.

Hearing happy things from beta readers. (Much thanks to the Steel Falcon Beta Read Team!) Aiming for launch October 1 for Hollywood Jesus, Rise of the Divine Assassin.
