is here. It's a cool pic, and before the thing that happened last year (and my hair is very long now), 'cos I'm not coming out of my cave until I'm sure that unwelcome visitor is away and gone for good. Or close enough. Anyway, I did an interview. Would you like to read it? … Continue reading Nikky’s Interview …

The new story is up on pre-order, and I tried to take all the advice for making it easy on the reader. I'm not talking only the words that make up the story -- there's a ton of other stuff.

Did you see the new addition off to the right? Yes, I finished another project. I'll say the genre is Dark Urban Fantasy with touches of metaphysical and horror, but the latter two are there as an indication, not a notice of classic witchcraft or slasher horror.
