A Little Blurb on Vermillion

When a haunting triggers a series of shadowquakes in Purgatory, spirits Velvet and Nick must cross over into the world of the living to sort out the case of a missing undertaker. But will a seductive body thief come between them and cast the distant district of Vermillion and its inhabitants into forever night?

Vermillion will appear in the upcoming Kiss Me Deadly anthology from Running Press Kids (August 2010).

The Excitement is Building!

I went over the proof pages for Vermillion this week and got to see all the other contributor's stories (which I'll be reading soon-2 months early--take that!!!). Looks like I win at being a windbag. Vermillion is the longest story of the bunch (by about a half a page). A little about the story: It's set almost entirely in Purgatory, so all the characters (mostly) are dead, there's romance, sexual subterfuge, human body possessions and stuff. I hope people like it.

And because people are going to ask, Vermillion is actually the sequel to a trilogy of Velvet and Nyx books (which I haven't finished working on yet--though I'm close, so damn close). Hope to be going on submission (that means my agent will be pimping the first book to publishers) by the end of this month!

Wish me luck!!!
