Black Friday ’13

The big day has arrived. This Friday the 29th, aka Black Friday, sees the release of my newest story, BLACK MAGIC, as an eBook and a Podiobook.

If you heard the tale serialized on HorrorAddicts.net this season, you can now download the full story, as a Kindle eBook from Amazon, or in any format from Smashwords.com. The price for this tale is only $0.99.

If you missed its debut on the podcast, or if you missed an episode, or just want to hear it all en masse, Podiobooks is where you can subscribe to a new feed.

Also, in the spirit of Black Friday, I have a special coupon code for the anthology of vampire short stories, FRESH BLOOD, which features another story of Matt Black, BLACK & WHITE. This coupon is good to download the full eBook for only $0.99 from Smashwords.com. When you order, enter the code FX76F. This code only lasts through Black Friday.

So, what is BLACK MAGIC all about? This is a prequel tale of sorts to my current work in progress, BLACK CITY.

Capt. Matt Black and Dr. Andrew MacGillivray are a pair of paranormal private eyes hot on the trail of someone — or something — killing women during the raucous 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Stranger things are afoot however when their friend, L. Frank Baum, finds a man who was attacked not far from the World’s Fair.

It is a fun tale full of shapeshifters, wizards and witches, mystery and mayhem, topped off with a dollop of steampunk.
