Check the date – it’s a special day.  Today is 9/13/13. It’s also the surprise release date of Mr. Bonejangles & Other Tales of Dark Karma.  Any moment now (I’ve been saying since 7 a.m.) he will finally be free.  The bonus is that I will finally be free of this crusty, angular trickster.

I think that is my favorite part of the publishing process… setting characters free.  The creatures that make their way across the pages have haunted me for the last year as they’ve come to life.  Now, as soon as that link on Amazon goes live, they are born… and free to haunt someone else.

So, while we wait, here’s a screenshot of the table of contents and a cover reveal.  Edited by Amy Eye, and the cover was created by Crystal Bozeman Clifton and depicts the unpleasant adolescent Dixon as he enters the woods and stumbles across the title character, Bonejangles.

Bonejangles and Dixon are just a few of the warped personalities that wait.  There’s a ghost with an unhealthy romantic obsession – ’til death do we part, right?  There’s a woman that loses herself in her appearance and a janitor who discovers that the only difference between a tyrant and the oppressed is which side you are on.

Altogether, it’s a mixed box of chocolates, all dark.

And now you are free to open it.
