You aren’t mistaken — this is an extra post from me this week. Everyone has been so gracious and generous with my book launch for Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak that I’m bursting with gratitude… and blog posts.
Thursday Doors is now hosted by Dan Antion. Today Dan has done a truly marvelous Doors post inspired by Dead of Winter at his blog. I do hope you’ll click over and visit. The image above (or the photo part anyway) is just one of the wonderful photos he took in multiple photo-shoots for his post. All the images reminded Dan of things in Journey 1, Forlorn Peak. It means so very much to me when any reader thinks of my story after they have finished turning the pages of the book! Thank you, Dan!
Also, I’m still glowing from the wonderful reviews, including those from Robbie Cheadle and Mark Bierman.
Doors to Scary Stuff
Now to the Teaganizations of doors for Thursday Doors.
I describe Dead of Winter as more of a fantasy that includes ghosts than an actual ghost story. Author, Roberta Eaton Cheadle (known and loved as Robbie to many of us) has some truly scary ghosts.
Margaret goes to live with her grandfather at his ancient inn. Phantoms congregate at the inn, hoping she can free them from the clutches of Hugh Bigod, the 12th century ghost who has drawn them away from Heaven’s White Light in his canine guise.

Teri Polen authored this extraordinary story. Subject A36 is frightening in a different way. If genetic engineering could guarantee you and your family perfect health and unparalleled beauty, would you pay top dollar for it? Would you kill for it? Residents of the Colony would. And do. Seventeen-year-old Asher Solomon and his team have rescued countless hostages, saving them from painful deaths in Colony labs as desirable genetic traits are stripped from their bodies. Asher and his team embark on their riskiest mission ever, and the stakes have never been higher. But even if he survives the physical dangers, the devastating secrets he uncovers might destroy him.

Some horrifying stuff is all too real. Mark Bierman penned a story of tragedy and heartache. How much more can Tyler Montgomery and John Webster take? This missions trip, the “healing” one, has only added fresh layers of pain. Construction of an orphanage in Haiti’s northwest . . . yes. But a doomed rescue operation, human traffickers, human anomalies, extreme personal danger . . . risk of death? They hadn’t signed up for those. Turning their backs on the crisis, however, is unthinkable, it’s just not who they are.

Winter Is Here
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who had posted and supported Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak. I’m overwhelmed but thrilled that the launch of this new series/serial is still going. My heart is full.
Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak
With Dead of Winter, I call the installments Journeys, because the characters travel across the complex world I built, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. These journeys will publish approximately monthly. Length will range from 30 to 60 pages, or so.
