Black & White blog tour giveaway winners, and Full Dark is coming!

Hope everyone's doing well. I'm here to announce the winners of my Black & White blog tour giveaway - sorry it's a bit late, I got kind of swamped with work after the tour wrapped up. So without further ado...

Winner of $10 Amazon giftcard - Lynda Dietz
Winners of ecopies of A Change of Mind and Other Stories - Will Griesmer, Brent Strassburg and Mary Preston

Congrats, guys! I'll be in touch about your prizes shortly.

Now, onto some other exciting news. I'm pleased to announce that I'm involved in an anthology put together by the wonderful Melissa Maygrove, which is set for release at the end of this month (just in time for Halloween). Melissa's been through some trials and tribulations recently, to say the least, so I'm super impressed that she's managed to pull this project together so well.

Title: FULL DARK: An Anthology

Tagline: What happens in the dark will come to light.

Official blurb:
Full Dark is a collection of eleven short works with impressive depth and range. Twisted tales of ghosts, villains, and the paranormal await you—mystery, heinous fantasy, and pure suspense. Acclaimed and award-winning authors as well as a few talented newcomers have joined forces to be your guide. Venture into the dark if you dare.

Just A Matter Of Time by Loni Townsend
Forerunner by David Powers King
Taking Care Of You by Carrie Butler
The Apartment by Lisa Buie-Collard
The Caricature by Nick Wilford
Shifting Sands by Elizabeth Seckman
Shadows Falling On Rainbows by Celeste Holloway
Meringue, Murder or Marzipan by Tonja Drecker
Haunted Lake by Michelle Athy
Soul Coin by Laura Rich
Retribution by Melissa Maygrove

FULL DARK is a benefit anthology. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization that does many wonderful things for our country's active military, its veterans, and the countless first responders who sacrifice so much to keep us safe.

Publisher: Obsidian Books

Official release date: October 30, 2017

I'm excited to be a part of this book alongside a stellar line-up of authors, and also very happy that the profits are going to such a superb cause, especially in light of the various disasters we have seen lately.
