Spooktacular Giveaway Hop!

So, today I am part of another blog hop - hope to see some folks popping in! This is the second time I've done this, and I'll be doing things a little differently. This is an enormous hop. Tons of blogs involved. So if you're new to the site, welcome! Please feel free to pop around a bit. I have an old award-winning short story of mine which I posted here for visitors to enjoy; if you're into traditional fantasy stories, take a peek.

The prizes? Very seasonally appropriate, since the book takes place at Halloween!

First Prize: One print copy of By Darkness Revealed, open to US only.

Also offered: Three ebook copies of By Darkness Revealed, available internationally in the winner's choice of format.


Ryan Blackwell's magic had kept him from acceptance by family and peers for his whole life. He thought to escape it and start anew by burying himself in the military college at Northshield, Vermont.


Instead, he finds himself in the midst of a deeper and more dangerous sorcery than he has ever encountered before. The university sits on the largest ley line nexus Ryan has ever seen - a font of extraordinary magical power. And he's not the only one who's noticed... Suddenly, only Ryan's wit, will, and the talent he once hoped to leave behind stand between a nightmarish creature and everything he cares for.

The first of the Blackwell Magic series, with new books forthcoming soon from Role of the Hero Publishing.
