I'm happy to report that my new novella, Yanaguana, will launch next week and preorders are open NOW.
Part of the new Midnight Bites series from Crone Girls Press, Yanaguana will be released with two other novellas under the title Foul Womb of Night, centering on horror among the military or paramilitary. A prequel to the first Blackfire novel, Yanaguana follows Sara Harvey and Paul Vaughn as they face a mysterious force killing people in San Antonio by forcing them to face their deepest, most paralyzing fears.
Also included are Goblin Hole by Adam Stemple and Frozen Meat by Gustavo Bondoni, ranging from the trenches of World War I to the frozen wastes of the Antarctic.
All this for $2.99 preorder price! Only available in ebook. Free if you have Kindle Unlimited!
I had a wonderful time writing Yanaguana. Of course, it's always fun to ride with Sara and the gang, whether they're facing down an aswang ghoul in the Phillippines or a redcap in the British Isles or a Russian rusulka lost in Memphis or, y'know, zombies. Yanaguana takes us in some new directions with the Blackfire crew, and let me explore some aspects of the team that we haven't seen before.
If you're wondering about the previous Blackfire books... well, they're out of print. Sorry! The good news is, you absolutely do NOT have to have read the other books to understand Yanaguana. It was intentionally written as a standalone novella, so while it will certainly tie in to the events in the other books, you will not be lost if this is your first adventure with Sara and the team.
And I really loved exploring San Antonio. They make guacamole at the table, man. It's research!
I hope you enjoy Yanaguana as much as I enjoyed writing it. It reminded me how much fun I had with the first few books, even when they fought me (and Yanaguana fought me hard, too. Some books simply will not do what they're told.) It is my hope to keep writing in the Blackfire series for as long as I'm having fun and y'all keep asking for them, and yes, I do hope to get the early books back in print someday, possibly in a compilation.
