For those of you who are Darby Karchut fans, Kelly Hashway fans,  or Aurelio Voltaire fans (and if you're a reader of this blog, you probably are), have I got some news for you!!

Aurelio Voltaire's debut novel, Call of the Jersey Devil will be an Amazon Big Deal from today, April 25 until Sunday, May 11.

The Pine Barrens of New Jersey are a wasteland - well, even more so than the rest of the state.  Few people can live there, businesses certainly don't thrive, and other than the trees that cast an impenetrable darkness over the sugar sand, not a lot of things flourish in the unusual landscape.

Except for the Jersey Devil. Hellspawn of folklore and legend.

Which makes it the perfect place for a Goth festival!

Or, at least that's what brings five disenfranchised mall rats and a washed up Goth musician to a particular, lonely cabin in this wasteland.  Where they're about to find out that it really is true: New Jersey is an entrance to Hell.

With the help of a lone witch, this small group must face off against their deepest fears and the most unholy monsters in a battle where their very souls, the world they live in, and any chance of returning to Hot Topic is at stake!

And Darby Karchut has TWO specials.  Right now Gideon's Spear, the sequel to Finn Finnegan is also an Amazon Big Deal from today, April 25, until Sunday, May 8!

 For Finn, it's time to Irish up.
When a power-crazed sorceress and the neighborhood pack of beast-like goblins team up and threaten both his master and his friends, thirteen-year-old Finn (not Finnegan) MacCullen does the only thing an apprentice monster hunter can do: he takes the fight to the enemy. And woe to the foe he meets along the way.

On top of the Amazon Big Deal, Darby also is doing a Goodreads Giveaway of an autographed Finn Finnegan! You can enter it here. :)

And finally, there's a great Goodreads Giveaway for Kelly Hashway's Monster Within going on until June 30. :) Go enter it now!

I'm so excited to finally share with everyone this AWESOME cover for another of my authors, the wonderful D.M. Cunningham, by the super-wicked artist, Veronica V. Jones!

Love comic-book villains? Love mad genius and Tesla? Love 12-year-old potty humor?

Yeah, me too. :) But the cover gives you a glimpse of the super-awesome-ness of what to expect from Niles Wormwart, Accidental Villain.

By D.M. Cunningham 
In the science fair world of ketchup-spewing volcanoes and potato clocks, one boy, Niles Wormwart, plans to alter the history of science fairs with his time travel wristwatch based on Nicola Tesla's work. Unfortunately, history has different plans for Niles.

After Niles blows up his school's science wing with his project, his father, deciding his son needs to man up, make some friends, and take a break from his constant experiments, sends unsuspecting Niles off to the mysterious Camp Mayhem.

The only problem is that Niles' father thinks it's a role-playing camp. Well, it's not.
Headed up by the ominous Red Czechmark, Camp Mayhem is ground zero for training the future villains of today. A place for real kids to realize the real villain inside them. Niles sharpens his focus on escaping the camp while everyone inside wants him to sharpen his focus on discovering his own dark powers. There's a sinister plot brewing, and Niles is dead in the middle of it.
Thrust into a world he only thought existed in comic books. Niles discovers his true potential inside the walls of Camp Mayhem-the potential to become the darkest of evils or stay true to his good-hearted roots.
