Due to some personal setbacks in the last month or so including illness, a death in the family, and tornado outbreaks, I have fallen behind getting Darkness Taunts ready for release. Most of the revisions are complete now, but I still need to let proofreaders get through it. I estimate this will take up to a week before the novel is ready to go. With that in mind you can expect it to be uploaded on retailer sites next weekend between July 6th-7th. I will announce it on all my social media accounts the moment it is available and include links as they become available (most people know Barnes & Noble takes the longest).
This is something I dreaded announcing. I’ve worked every possible moment to avoid it, but came to the conclusion I had to delay publication. I do not want to give readers anything less than my best. On that note, I have the first four chapters ready to go for you all to read so you can at least get started. The only problem is they add up to a little over 14,000 words. My plan is to put up the first two chapters tomorrow morning here and anyone who would like a free PDF copy of the first four may use the contact form to request them.
I will warn everyone now the second chapter ends on a cliffhanger whereas the fourth ends at a more natural stopping point. If you’re like me and hate to be left hanging, you might go ahead and send me a request to get all four. Starting tomorrow (Sunday) and up until release, I will be happy to provide the PDF document to anyone who wants it. The contact form can be found on a tab toward the top of the page or you can click here.
My apologies for the delay. Too many unforeseen circumstances set me back, but I hope you all will stick with me until Darkness Taunts is ready.
