About

My debut novel, Daemons in the Mist (DITM) was a 2010 NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) Winner. It's a Young Adult urban-fantasy paranormal romance novel set in modern day San Francisco. My goal is to raise the funds to release the book in both print and e-book editions as the first release from the publishing company I created. I am currently finishing up the novel to be edited for publication. It will be our first release at Korat Publishing.

About the Book

Here is the back copy blurb for the book.

She could have been a perfectly normal, albeit a breathtakingly beautiful girl, but she isn't. For I know there are secrets hidden behind her eyes.

Seventeen year old Patrick Connolly has been drawn to Nualla ever since he first saw her, but as the years pass she seems to take absolutely no notice of him. Until, that is, he rescues her from a confrontation in the school hallway. Little does he know that he’s about to be thrust into a world of life altering secrets and things that shouldn’t exist, because the fog and mist of San Francisco are concealing more than just buildings.

Deliriously captivating and extraordinarily soulful, Daemons in the Mist beautifully weaves together two voices to tell the story of what happens when life leads you down a not so normal path.

What will my contribution go to?

All of the funds of this project will be used for editorial services, manufacturing costs, advertising, publication, and distribution costs associated with launch of a brand new book, and a small portion of each pledge will also go towards the purchasing of that pledge's rewards, having them shipped, signed, and shipped back out again.
