New Year, New Newsletter!

John EversonI hope you had a great Christmas and New Year's! If your house is anything like mine, the holidays went by in a rush of chaos, cooking, and late-night couch-crashing after crazy busy days. I was off work for close to two weeks, but in the end, it seemed like just a long weekend after hosting a couple of parties, finishing a writing deadline (I was holed up in the library working for most of four days) and playing house IT tech (we bought my son a computer with Windows 8, so I also upgraded my PC, backed up all the house files, and rewired my office when I set up a new router and wireless network).

As I write this, I'm on a business trip in Florida and during my off-time, I decided to experiment with a new newsletter system. The first five years of this almost-monthly newsletter ran out of Yahoo, the last five out of Internet Mail Manager (geez... I've been doing newsletters for 10 years?). Assuming this edition works... the next five may be driven by the MailChimp! If you're reading this, and you haven't seen a newsletter from me in a long time, please email me and let me know — I'd like to know if this system works better!

Amazon puts Sacrifice and The 13th on their 100 List for January!

This month, is featuring the ebook editions of my novels Sacrifice and The 13th on their 100 Kindle Books for $3.99 or Less list! Every month, Amazon (in its mysterious Amazonian way), picks 100 ebooks to put on sale in various genres and then features them on a promotional list and this month, under the Mysteries & Thrillers section, they are featuring my 2nd and 3rd mass market novels for Leisure Books for just $2.99!

Just scroll down the page to see the bookcovers for Sacrifice and The 13th. If you haven't read these yet, I hope you'll take advantage of the sale. And if you have
please help spread the word about them?

I'd really love to see these novels get some more exposure, so if you could visit the book's pages this week, hit the little Like button at the top of the page, and click on the little checkboxes for the "Subject Tags" at the bottom of the pages to agree with the keywords there (like Occult Horror, Erotic Horror, Thriller, etc.), that would be awesome!  The direct links to the book pages are:

Goodreads BDSM Group Featuring NightWhere in January

The Goodreads BDSM Group is featuring NightWhere as one of its group reads for January. I have to admit, I never thought one of my books would be the topic of discussion for a BDSM reading group but... what the hell! NightWhere certainly has some of the subject matter to fit! There has been some great discussion on the thread so far — if you're interested in joining in, just bounce over to: You'll need to join the group to participate in the thread.

New Review:
A review of NightWhere also recently appeared on Music Artery and said the novel, "can only be described as the stuff of nightmares! This book is definitely not for younger readers, nor for the squeamish. That said, all other horror lovers absolutely must check this one out. It’s definitely different than anything you’ve experienced before (I hope – if not you have bigger issues)! ... It’s definitely a tale you won’t soon forget!"  You can see the full review here:

New Year, New NightWhere

I can't believe this much time has passed... but on Halloween — literally, on Halloween — I signed two contracts for special editions of NightWhere.

Bad Moon Books will be issuing a limited edition hardcover of the novel later this year. They did an amazing job with Siren, and I can't wait to see what they do with this one.

For audiobook lovers, I've also inked a deal with, who will be issuing an audiobook edition of NightWhere this year.

And, as if that wasn't enough, later this year there will also be a German edition, from the same folks who will be issuing a translation of Siren  (retitled as Ligeia) this spring — Festa Verlag.

I'll post direct links to all of these when they're available.

Thanks, and good night....

Beach in Naples, FLI can't believe that 2012 has come and gone. I remember at the start of it thinking that 2012 would be a more "relaxed" year for me. Instead, with all of the travel I did for my dayjob, I think it may have been one of the most frenetic. But it's all good. I saw a lot of cool things... sampled a lot of great micro-brews... and got a lot of writing done. If you want to read my reflections on my experience of 2012, check out my Goodbye 12, Hello Lucky 13 blog.

Otherwise, drop me a note and let me know what you think of the new newsletter format... and I'll catch up with you next month!

Here's to Lucky '13!

Yours in Dark Arts,
Amazon Sale on Sacrifice and The 13th
