Ghost stories, from local myths to full blown horror shows, have been spun around campfires since the dawn of man, passed from generation to generation for edification or simply to frighten and thrill. They lead us along dark side roads, into murky swamps and abandoned houses. Ghost stories bring us face-to-face with the farmer harboring secret graves behind his barn, the old man living next to the cemetery, or the frightened person staring back at you from the mirror. They haunt the listeners and readers and make them want to re-tell them again and again, so they would not be alone in their fear.

I started looking for a narrator for my book in January. I wanted a female because of how important I think the roles are for my female characters. I also believe there is something amazing about having a female narrate a book typically dominated by men. During Boskone I was excited to announce my book had been picked up by a narrator. I’m happy to report that the narration by Robin J Sitten is everything I hoped it would be. Coming in just over eight hours, Robin breathed life into my characters. The dialogue remains snarky while the fight scenes are fluid and intense. So if you’re an audiobook fan, I highly suggest you move this onto your device and prepare for an amazing story.
It’s 1:30AM when I wrote this and I’m still awake. Truth be told, I’m currently angry at myself for not buying ice cream earlier. I hate my logical past self. 1:30AM demands ice cream. We’re going to need to have a long talk about the necessity of having chocolate swirls available at all time.
I just clicked “submit” on the Nighthawks audio book. My past self is kind of a dink. I remember him thinking, “Oh, I can edit an audio book easy peasy.” Not only did he skip out on peanut butter cup Ben & Jerry’s, he also had absolutely no idea how difficult it is to edit an audio book. My wonderful narrator, Robin J. Sitten did such a great job that the editing process was easy enough, but active listening is apparently not a skill I easily command. The button has been pushed and now the Amazon gremlins will perform whatever devious acts they must and soon it’ll be available for sale.
Oh yeah, Suburban Zombie High: The Reunion is available for sale too. Grab a copy, leave a review, I think by now we all know the drill. The third installment is getting ready to see the light of day for the first time. The third book in this series has defeated me three times before. This time, I’m kicking it in the butt so hard its teeth are rattling. Huge shout out to my editor for this series, Suzanne Lahna over at Word Vagabond, without her cheering me on from the corner, I’d probably be a crying mess. Nobody wants to see a large man weeping over his iPad. It’s not pretty.
By the time you read this, there’s a good chance I’ll have the curtains drawn and be elbow deep in popcorn while I watch the latest Power Rangers movie. Yes, the curtains will be drawn so my neighbors won’t catch me indulging in my secret shame. What can I say? I grew up on Power Rangers and with an injection of teen angst, there’s a chance I’ll be buying it on Blu-Ray before the end credits appear. Stop shaking your head, it’s not that bad. I can quit anytime I want. I swear.
Now that you’re judging me, leave me your guilty pleasure movie in the comments. I’ll reveal the single movie I can’t help but stop and watch every time it’s on TV. You think you’re judging me now, just wait.
