So, by now you’ve heard that On Demon Wings was nominated for the GoodReads 2012 Best Horror Award. And you know that I’m up against some pretty heavy competition in that category…most of the books are big names from big publishers (which is why in my case, unlike most Academy Award nominations, it actually IS an honor to be nominated). You’ve also heard that if I make it to the finals, I will be releasing a special EIT scene for free, just as a thank you (oh and as voting incentive, let’s not kid ourselves here).
Here’s the deal. The Semi-Finals for the award begin on the 12th, so I have to make it through the first round before ANY of this can happen.
Three Chances to Vote!
Opening Round: October 30 – November 11
Semifinal Round: November 12 – November 18
Final Round: November 19 – November 27
Then the finals begin on November 19th. Which means that’s when I’ll find out if I’ve made it to the end. And if I do, I will not only release the free scene.…
.…I’ll release a novella! I’d love to do a free novella, unfortunately now that I write for a living, I can’t do that. Time spent writing has to be able to put food on my table.
But it’s a novella you WILL love. It may mean Ada’s novella is getting pushed out of the way by a few months but that’s cool, right? BECAUSE…
The novella will be The Dex-Files Part Two. OR as it will be titled: And With Madness Comes the Light.
It will be a novella told from Dex’s POV and unlike the Dex-Files, it won’t be a collection of scenes. It will explain from that last moment in Lying Season, until the end of On Demon Wings, what was going on with Dex. His story of the months spent away from Perry. And YES it will include “that scene” during the exorcism that all of you were so anxious to read
So there you have it people. I have ideas flowing, my cover artist on speed dial, I’m just waiting for November 19th.
Of course, I can’t do this alone. I need your votes! Get your friends to vote, your family, your dog, whatever. Get me to the finals at least and you will get your newest Dex-Files book in Feb/March of 2013! And remember, I’ll need your votes again once I make it to the semi-finals on Monday (which I hopefully will!)

Oh right, and in case you missed these tidbits, Into the Hollow is being released on Kindle and Smashwords on November 15th for $3.99 (and for the last time, if you HAVE A NOOK you can DOWNLOAD FROM SMASHWORDS. It’s the same type of file, same price and you don’t have to wait MONTHS for Barnes and Noble to add it!!). Really hope you find that it’s worth the slight delay!
Also, The Devil’s Metal is just 99 cents on Amazon Kindle too: http://www.amazon.com/The-Devils-Metal-ebook/dp/B009EEOM4S/ref=pd_sim_kstore_6
(thanks again Heather for that Dex button!)
