“Good evening.”

Did you read that in a faux Dracula accent? Excellent, you are in the right place.

In 2018 we hope to bring you two new series. (The words will not stop flowing, send help—and coffee.)

As the books work their way through a thorough development process, we hope you will find entertainment in the blog and social media interactions. The Muse works with our Procrastination Puck to bring writing prompts, observations, book reflections, and other amusements throughout the week.

Thank you for joining us on fiction’s darker side, may the moon ever illuminate your path.
