99 Cent New Year's Specials!
For a limited time Deadly Heirs will be on a 99 cent special for both Kindle and Nook! This won't last long, so if you're looking for some suspenseful mystery in your life this is the best price you'll ever find the adventures of private investigator Chase Michael DeBarlo!
Deadly Heirs Now Available on Kindle!
Chase Michael DeBarlo is searching for Earl Kiddering's missing last will and testament once again, but this time he's doing so on Kindle! This first foray into the world of e-books is a second edition of my first mystery novel, Deadly Heirs. Most changes to the text are quite subtle, but there are also a number of extended scenes throughout the book.
Saying Earl Kiddering is rich is like saying Babe Ruth hit a couple of home runs, but saying he's dead is more accurate. A month after the billionaire drowns in his own swimming pool, Earl's great-niece hires private investigator Chase Michael DeBarlo to find Kiddering's missing will while other family members squabble over the fortune. Dark family secrets are uncovered during Chase's investigation, including adultery, and tax evasion -- and Earl's death continues to look less like an accident. In the meantime, Chase feels obligated to help his mother's friend, a lounge singer who fears she is being stalked. He reluctantly takes the case, fearing it may infringe on his time with the Kiddering case -- and it does. Deadly Heirs explores the loyalties (and disloyalties) of family bonds, exposes a private investigator's time-management crisis, and uncovers the corruption of a mysterious art market.
It's been a busy month with a lot going on, so here's a rundown of link "treats" for Halloween of all that has happened:

Bradshaw Chronicles Interview
Bryan Lee Whatley interviewed me for The Bradshaw Chronicles, and the video presentation of it is today's Friday Edition of the show. Featured is an in-depth conversation about my soon-to-be-released Ghosts and Legends of Oklahoma and a number of ghostly tales from the book. Watch below:
New Video Releases!
I've had a couple video releases of late with more on the way! First, Society of the Haunted has released the deleted scenes clips from the episode of The Haunted we were featured in, "Monster in the Closet." We were a bit amazed that the producers elected not to include the fantastic scene of the cat reacting to something in the bedroom considering the show airs on Animal Planet.
Secondly, I've released my third episode of Paranormal Vines. In this one I bottle a "paranormal pomegranate" and include a clip from the recently incinerated Fort Chaffee.
