It feels like it's been forever, but UNDEAD FOR A DAY has gone live!

First off, here's the buy link for this e-book:

Second, this is so very exciting.  Nancy, Linda, and I are so proud and happy about how this turned out, from the novellas themselves to the beautiful cover.  As most of you know, I wanted to continue my Vampire Babylon series, and self-pubbing was the way to go.  Besides, I love writing novellas just as much as I love reading them, and I have to say that I enjoyed Nancy's and Linda's stories as a pure fan!

I don't know about you guys, but I usually go on a Halloween binge around this time of year.  I devour short stories in particular, plus scary movies.  So I'm ecstatic to actually be a part of Halloween with this collection, which centers around Samhain/All Hallow's Eve.  Here's the blurb so you can get a better sense of what the three stories are about:

Samhain. All Hallow’s Eve. A night when zombie-like revenants can be raised by a magic-using, ancient family to exact revenge on the hunter who wrecked their underground kingdom... A time when a redheaded blackbelt pits herself against warmongering witch clans... A holiday that allows the Underworld to open and the creatures to pour out, their freedom governed by a gentleman's agreement between the forces of Light and Dark.

Welcome to UNDEAD FOR A DAY, a collection of three novellas from a trio of reader favorite urban fantasy writers: Chris Marie Green, AKA Christine Cody (Vampire Babylon and Bloodlands series), New York Times Bestseller Nancy Holder (Wicked and Teen Wolf series), and Linda Thomas-Sundstrom (Vampire Moons and Wolf Moons series).

“Raising the Darkness” by Chris Marie Green (A Dawn Madison Vampire Babylon novella) reunites you with former hunter Dawn Madison, who hasn’t been the same since she retired from the life. She’s tired and drained from injuries sustained during the team’s last stand against the dragon, but when the clock strikes twelve on Samhain, everything changes. It seems that someone has sent raised-from-the-dark creatures after her, and they’re out for blood—as well as Dawn’s life.

In “Into the Fire” by Nancy Holder (A Story of the Favored,) Bridget Flynn leaps into a bonfire and goes from Samhain year wife at the first stroke of midnight to widow on the last. Caught in the middle of a feud between rival magical Houses, Bridget raises a battle force of her own. But can she survive in the midst of hot-tempered witches intent on destroying each other?

 “Trapped in Stone” by Linda Thomas-Sundstrom takes us to Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, where the forces of Good and Evil are playing a game of Chicken with one man's soul, and the woman he loves is a major player in a challenge that has continued for a century.

“Enchanting, mysterious, powerfully written…Dawn Madison and herunderground entourage will charm you with everything an urban fantasy should be.  Be prepared for a wonderfully wicked, kick-ass night of Samhain fun.  Whether you are new to the Vampire Babylon series or a loyal fan--you will love this story!”---Sheri Whitefeather, kindle and national bestselling author.

I hope you join me on this new journey through Vampire Babylon-land!  There'll be another GothicScapes anthology with another VB novella come December, but enjoy this first.  ; )
