downloadAs you can tell from the long list of posts, interviews, and reviews below, I’ve been working this blog tour for quite some time now.  In that time, according to Statpress, I’ve had about 7,000 visitors to this blog alone, and about 30,000 page views.  That seems like a lot.  Here’s the reality of it – no matter how much I write about this book, people don’t seem to be buying it.

I am not a quitter, I am a writer.  I invested nearly a month of my life writing posts for this blog tour, and I want to find a way to make it work.  If you know people or hang out in places where there are people who like Dark Fantasy, or Edgar Allan Poe, or whatever, please…take a moment or two today and pass on the link to either this blog, or one of the many below.  Sign up to win a copy, even if you don’t want it, and then give it to someone who does if you win…

Meanwhile, back near the Dismal Swamp, I am typing the long-lost Cletus J. Diggs novel “The Crazy Case of Foreman James” into the computer, and should move straight from that into “A Midnight Dreary,” Book V of the DeChance Chronicles…  The words they won’t stop rollin’, no they just slow down…

Today’s post is over at the Paranormal Book Club.  It’s not about Nevermore, per se.  It’s about Donovan DeChance, and all the characters, stories, and books that led to the writing of Nevermore.  Here’s a snippet:

“The DeChance Chronicles & Nevermore, a Novel of Love, Loss & Edgar Allan Poe

I’ve written a lot of guest posts on this blog tour in support of my newest novel, Nevermore, a Novel of Love, Loss & Edgar Allan Poe but I think it’s about time I spent a little time on the books that have come before, and the characters who made Nevermore possible.

I have written four books, so far, about a man named Donovan DeChance.  Donovan is a mage, book collector, investigator, and self-appointed guardian of the balance of power in the world.  He has a familiar, an Egyptian Mau grown at least twice as large as it should have.  Her name is Cleo.  In later books, he also has an old Crow named Asmodeus.  His partner and romantic interest is a woman named Amethyst, who is an expert in the uses of stones and crystals.

As a younger man, I wrote a lot of licensed fiction.  I did a Dark Ages vampire trilogy for White Wolf titled The Grails Covenant Trilogy, as well as several clan novels and standalone books.  All of the time I worked on those novels, I was chomping at the bit.  I pitched idea after idea, but they had a vision in mind for what their books would be, how their characters would act, etc. It was confining, and in the end, soul-sucking, and so I moved on to writing my own novels in my own worlds.”  – Read the Entire Post at The Paranormal Book Club ->
