Need something to listen to besides a certain orange billionaire's voice today? Allow me to offer a little bit of Skim Blood and Savage Verse: Offbeat Crimes 3. Carrington Loveless III gets his turn in this one, atypical vampire, son of an old-money family. It's a story that only he could tell. Also - pardon the blips in the narration. I forgot how to word for a second there.
Skim Blood and Savage Verse
Offbeat Crimes 3
Coming soon from Pride Publishing
Preorder: 21st February
Early Download: 7th March (Pride website release)
General Release: 4th April
When a ferocious book attacks Carrington at his own birthday party, he believes it's an isolated incident. But similar books soon pop up all over town, menacing innocent people with harsh bits of poetry and blank verse that deliver damaging physical blows. It's a frustrating case with too many variables and not enough answers, and the stakes go up with each attack.
With the help of his misfit squad mates at the 77th and the public library's rare book department, the missing pieces decrease but not Carrington's vexations. His commanding officer rakes him over the coals at the beginning of every shift. His police partner has lost patience with what she sees as his delusional relationship choices and his inability to pick the right man in a vast field of two. City Hall demands that the books be stopped immediately. It's enough to put a nutritionally-challenged vampire off his skim blood.
We have launch! Uncommonly Tidy Poltergeists is out as of yesterday at Mischief Corner Books and fine entailers everywhere ;) This is the first story I've done (not the first conceived but the first finished and out there) with an asexual protagonist. Representations in fiction matter and representing more than just a small sliver of humans is important to me. I talked a bit more about that here yesterday:
The Novel Approach

Currently living part time in the hectic sprawl of northern Delaware and full time inside her head, she has one husband, one son, two cats, a love of all things beautiful and a terrible addiction to the consumption of both knowledge and chocolate.
