What's New:

Miserere is now available at Audible.

My short story "Naked the Night Sings" is only one of the many fine stories in the urban fantasy anthology Manifesto: UF, edited by Tim Marquitz and Tyson Mauermann, Angelic Knight Press, 2013.


"Filled with show me now and tell me later prose, [Miserere] was one of the finest debuts of 2011 and remains a novel that I remember details from nearly three years later." Justin Landon, Tor.com

Worldwide Miserere giveaway ...

NOTE: This contest is offically over. Please see Miserere giveaway--the winners!

Okay, people, here is the deal:

I was cleaning the house--yes, yes, I know, the end is truly here--and I noticed that I still had a box that contained several copies of my debut novel Miserere.

Hmmm, said my brain.

My brain says that sometimes over mundane things.

What can I do with this box of books?

Frankly, I'm getting old, and it's becoming more difficult to keep moving that box of books around, and the holidays are here, and I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy ...

Okay, I'm NOT feeling warm and fuzzy, but all the rest is true.

So I'm giving away some books.

To be clear: these are autographed, first print runs of my debut novel Miserere: An Autumn Tale. I will sign the book to you or to the individual of your choice in case you want to give one away as a gift. If you want no name in it so you can pimp it on Ebay, that's cool too.

I'm flexible like that.

In order to enter the contest to win one of THREE SIGNED COPIES OF MISERERE -- leave a comment and tell me how you found out about this contest. One entry per person. I'm serious about that.

The contest will run from Monday, December 3, 2012 -- Monday, December 10, 2012.

If you have difficulty leaving a comment, FOR ANY REASON, just click Contact Me and shoot me an email. Same rules apply. Tell me where you found out about this contest.

I will enter everyone into my magic Excel spreadsheet and will charge the sacred Random Number Finder to pick three winners.


What are you waiting for?

Hi Teresa, I found out about this wonderful giveaway from a retweet on twitter (which I retweeted as well). I read a review and interview you did at Fantasy Book Cafe and have been wanting to get my hands on Miserere: An Autumn Tale ever since.

Hi Teresa!

Just happened to log into my Google Reader feed and guess whose giveaway post was the very first article I saw? ;) So that's how I discovered the giveaway (and I will also post this to giveaway to FB).

Please enter me into the drawing. I have the e-book, but an autographed copy will look fabulous on the bookshelf. :)

Talk to you soon!
