Casters Series Box Set … and a giveaway for reviewers


It’s been a while since we’ve posted, clearly, since Enter the Night has been up for some time, and the third book in the series, Embrace the Night, is also available. In fact, we’ve just published a 3-book Casters Series box set containing those first three books (Comes the Night, Enter the Night and Embrace the Night). The fourth and final book, Forever the Night, will be available later this summer.

Isn’t our box set pretty? Here’s the cover in 3D:



And here’s the 2D version which some vendors require (Apple iBooks):


I like them both, but I’m sort of partial to the flat look cover. What about you?

But to the purpose of this post. We are planning to reduce the price of the box set and buy advertising in some of the newsletters that will help us reach more readers. But before we can do that, we need to rack up some reviews so that folks will know this is a good product when we go knocking on their doors to buy advertising space. Which is where you come in. If you’ve already read the series, we would love it if you could review the box set on As an incentive, if you review it and send me a link to the review, I will add your name to a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card. The odds of winning this giveaway are very good!

Comes the Night – with a really cool contest!

This series has been a long time in the making  three years, to be precise. That’s how long we’ve been living in this dark and thrilling Caster world. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Book 1 – Comes the Night.


Right now, it’s available only in ebook form from Amazon (Kindle) and Smashwords (all formats), but we couldn’t wait to tell you! We are very close to launching the paperback version, and are waiting for distribution of the ebook to Barnes & Noble, the Apple iBookstore, Kobo, etc. We’ll really make some noise then!


In the meantime, we’re having a contest to celebrate the launch. Because stones will play a significant role in this series, we’re giving away an enormous, softball-sized Labradorite crystal sphere (approx. value $200). Labradorite is a stone of “spiritual awakening”. It’s found in the Labrador Peninsula in Canada (duh), but it can also be found in Norway and the former USSR. According to, it “promotes intellectual, intuitive, and mystical wisdom, calmness, intuition”.



To enter this contest, just read this back cover blurb and comment below, giving us a one-word reaction. See? Easy!


How far would you go to escape your own personal teenage hell? Would you run away, break away from everything you know—even your own body?

Alex Robbins, Brooke Saunders and Maryanne Hemlock could not be more different, yet they all have something in common—deep and soul-searing pain. They are also all students atStreepAcademy, a boarding school just one step away from juvie, where they’ve come to complete high school. The three have been relegated to Harvell House, the residence reserved for the hardest cases, the so-called Rejects from Reject Row.

In the forbidden attic of the old Victorian house-turned-residence, the girls discover the diary of Connie Harvell, a young woman who was confined and abused there some 50 years ago. In the end, Connie’s attic prison couldn’t hold her—not completely. She found a way out. At least a dark part of her did. And after reading her diary, the girls discover they can escape at will too. A terrifying, thrilling flight from their bodies and their troubles.

But God help them, their pain isn’t all they leave behind when they join with the night.

And God help anyone who’s wronged them…


We will draw a random winner from the entries on January 15, 2013.
