It’s about time I got my butt over here to announce the special guest author for The Black Act: Witch Twins Saga Companion. This will be a free guide to the world, people, and faeries found within my dark fantasy novel. I’m very pleased to tell you the guest author will be Kate Jonez. Kate has written a fabulous essay called When Approaching the Fair Folk, and I know you’re going to love it.

This guide will also feature a glossary of terms, suggested fae reading, some creative commons fae pics, a The Black Act playlist, and some other goodies. I’m a bit behind in putting the guide together, and getting the paperback edition of The Black Act: Witch Twins Saga out, but I hope to have the companion released by end of June or July, and the paperback will be out soon. You can still pick up the ebook for 99 cents! Grab it quickly, because I’ll be raising the price to 2.99 soon.

Now, here’s some more info on Kate Jonez, Bram Stoker nominated author and chief editor at Omnium Gatherum.

Kate Winter14 Kate Jonez writes dark fantasy fiction. Her Bram Stoker ® Award nominated novel Candy House is available at Amazon in print and ebook. Ceremony of Flies is forthcoming from Dark Fuse July 2014.

She is also chief editor at Omnium Gatherum a small press dedicated to providing unique dark fantasy, weird fiction or literary horror in print and ebook formats. Three Omnium Gatherum books have been nominated for Shirley Jackson Awards.

Kate is a student of all things scary and when she isn’t writing she loves to collect objects for her cabinet of curiosities, research obscure and strange historical figures and photograph weirdness in Southern California where she lives with a very nice man and a little dog who is also very nice but could behave a little bit better.

Huge thanks going out to Kate for the essay! I can’t wait to share it with you as a part of The Black Act: Witch Twins Saga Companion. Watch for a cover reveal coming soon as well.

I also had the pleasure of being a part of Detritus, a collection of stories about the impulse to collect, preserve, and display gone horribly wrong, which was released by Omnium Gatherum. So be sure to check that out as well.

Louise Bohmer
Introduction by M.R. Sellars

About: Only 99 cents for a limited time!

The history of a curse is filled with bloody battles, bitter hatred, and dark secrets.

Through five generations, ghosts of war haunt the wise women. When the rebellion of Glenna ends, their curse sleeps bound in the Tunnels of the Dead, waiting for its chance to re-awaken the war between the wood people and Dalthwein clans. Claire, a wise woman born in the valley of the fae, unwittingly helps it escape imprisonment, while her twin sister Anna receives psychic glimpses of ancient secrets she must unravel. With her scribe teacher Rosalind, she also struggles to uncover the reasons behind Claire’s strange behavior, ever escalating since the death of their guild mother, Grianne.

The Age of the Wise Women will cease if the curse does not end with Anna and Claire. Perhaps inheriting the mistakes of their ancestors and learning the truths of their identities will bring great suffering for these witch twins.

The Black Act Witch Twins Saga includes all six books in the serial novel, plus an introduction from award winning paranormal thriller author M.R. Sellars.

Available On Kindle US

Hey friends and fiends!

Finally it’s time to reveal the special guest author who has written up a fabulously fun introduction for The Black Act: Witch Twins Saga. I know you’re going to love it. My special guest author is none other than M.R. Sellars! M.R. is a paranormal thriller writer who is the brains behind the award winning Rowan Gant Investigations series about a witch who becomes an occult detective. I was pretty tickled to write a blurb for Miranda. Read on for more info about my awesome pal, M.R.!

MRSellarsNOTNeilGaiman

A member of the ITW (International Thriller Writers), M. R. Sellars is a relatively unassuming homebody who considers himself just a “guy with a lot of nightmares and a word processing program.” His first full-length novel, Harm None, hit bookstore shelves in 2000 and he hasn’t stopped writing since. In addition to the award-winning Rowan Gant Investigations series, his catalog of fiction includes the Special Agent Constance Mandalay novels and numerous anthology shorts.

Sellars currently resides in the Midwest with his wife, daughter, Vicki the Wonder Dog, and a trio of rescued male felines that he describes as, “the competition.” At home, when not writing or taking care of the household, he indulges his passions for cooking and chasing his wife around the house. She promises that one day she will allow him to catch her.

M. R. Sellars can be found on the web at:
