There are plenty of monsters in the South Florida underworld and the Vampire, Kris Grant, is in charge of them all.
It isn’t easy being a Territory Master. Humans know that monsters exist and aren’t afraid to hunt them down. Since Vampires are mortal during the day, and there’s been more monster killings up north than normal, Kris knows he should lay low. But when three young siblings come into town on the run, things get even more complicated. Something’s hunting the kids and Kris has no choice but to protect them and his territory. It shouldn’t be too hard. All he has to do is survive the daylight hours.
With Werebears, Witches, reluctant Human Servants, and Vampires, Daylight Hours is the paranormal must-read for any fans of the genre.
Daylight Hours is also available for KINDLE and NOOK to download for only 99¢!
I’ve finished the 2nd draft of the sequel to Daylight Hours!
This is where all of the grueling editing, proofreading, editing, and more proofreading comes in.
Last year I self-published Daylight Hours and now it’s time to build the paperback and ebook editions of the second book in the series. My writing style has come a long way in the past year and it was a lot of fun writing a sequel. Kris Grant is a character I enjoy writing as and for a writer, that’s one of the greatest feelings in the world. It’s always a good thing when your work doesn’t feel like work.
I don’t want to give too much information on the second book just yet, because the second draft is far from what the finished book will look like. I will say this though. If you read the first book and enjoyed Kris Grant’s sarcasm and whit, then you’re going to appreciate the second book. I’m self-publishing the Kris Grant novels. This may be the only time in my life when I have complete creative control without an editor or a publisher stifling my writings and editing me to appeal to the masses. I wrote the second book knowing that I wasn’t going to hold anything back and it brings positive elements to the novel and gives me a freedom that I think shows through the writing.
Self-publishing a novel is one of the most stressful, demanding, time-consuming, exhausting work that I’ve ever done and I love every frustrating minute of it.
Kris Grant will be returning in a whole new novel Summer 2012.
I want to start off by thanking my employers at Whole Foods Market, Coral Springs for giving me the opportunity to set up a book-signing table during the Relay For Life Book Drive that’s running from April 21 to April 22. Very few companies care about their employers enough to support them in their dreams and I’m lucky to work with such a supportive group of individuals. Just having the opportunity was enough and I’m grateful for everything.
I also want to thank everyone who bought a signed copy of my book. I brought 20 paperback copies of “Daylight Hours” to the store and sold out within a couple of hours. It was pretty stunning and taught me not to doubt myself so much and to order more books next time.
All of the proceeds from my book signing went to Relay For Life to help the fight against cancer. It was nice to know that I was getting more copies of my book out there to the world, but also giving back to the community for a great cause. As a young, local author, it was an invaluable learning experience to do a signing like this. It was also motivating to hear so many positive people who wished me the best of luck in my future as a writer.
Everyone, thank you again for your support, and don’t forget to review “Daylight Hours” on Amazon.com once you’ve finished reading.
Also, the store’s Book Drive is still up and running today from 11-7 at Coral Springs Whole Foods Market. It’s the last day! It’s $1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardcovers. Those prices are hard to beat and all of the proceeds go to Relay For Life. Check it out.
