I’ve talked about the novel fairy before in this blog post. “The novel fairy is kind of like the tooth fairy, but more capacious. She leaves inspiration under the pillow. Sometimes if you were a really good boy or girl, the novel fairy actually leaves a manuscript with a favorable publishing contract attached.”
Well, its happened. The novel fairy visited me again! Just kidding. I want to announce my next novel: The Grove. I am going to self-publish this book. I want to explore every step of the production process.
Since I was at Norwescon last weekend, I created postcards so I figured I better catch up on the online announcements.
Sitka’s Quay appears to be like every other coastal tourist town on Highway 101, but lurking below its southern grove of ancient spruce are three sleeping primordial gods. The Keeper, Dayla Fischer, must remain in control of her magical abilities or fall into sickening madness, but lives a relatively quiet life with her husband, Oliver.
That is, until the delusional, but charming Jonah Leifson comes to town with a plan to awaken the Three. Soon, children begin disappearing. With powerful suggestion spells and mind reading abilities, Jonah wins over other sorcerers, meth users, the police, and eventually even her husband. Though no one believes her and she doubts her own sanity, she must stop Jonah, before he wakes the Three and brings about the end of the world.

Now I need to get some real tweets so I can have tweets in the book so Jonah has his own twitter account. Anyone who wants to follow him talk horror books, taking beautiful photos of Seattle area and descend into madness, please follow: @
