The Night Walk Men is a short novella that acts as a prologue to an as-yet unfinished and much longer work. I released the prologue last year and, since October of 2010, it's been downloaded by over 50,000 readers. I took that as my cue to keep working on this universe and allow us to get better acquainted with Sperro, Fallow and the rest of the Night Walk Men.
So I'm working on Book One of the Night Walk Men. It's a long-ish saga. At least, it will be, if the first book is popular enough to warrant me writing the second one and the third and so on. In our preview today, we meet Donovan Lo, a Chinese-Canadian who mysteriously lives alone in a half-empty apartment building in a seedier neighborhood of downtown Vancouver. He's just heard a car door slam and he's up after a restless night. Donnie is sure someone's trying to find him and he's not sleeping well as a result.
This excerpt will remain on the site until the end of the week. Then it'll come down. If visitors like this kind of preview, I'll do more as work on the novel continues. Thanks for reading!

Thanks for reading, everyone! This sneak peek is over for now. Have a great evening!

The year was 2010. The month, October. I was a fainting fool at the hands of a brand new Twitter account. I had all of three followers. I was excited.
I believe one of my first half-dozen followers was an indie author named Cyndi Tefft. She seemed enamoured with my surname and confessed to being madly in love with people from Scotland. I quickly unlisted my phone number and wrote a hasty email to friends telling them where they could find keys to my safe-deposit box should I mysteriously go missing.
I also left word that I was conversing with Cyndi. Well, months later, I'm still here. Cyndi didn't have anything to do with any of my abductions over the last year, but we've had some goofy conversations out there in the Twitterverse, just the same.
She's got one novel out and about and more on the way. Please, dear Cyndi, take it away and share some of yourself with the good readers out here...in the Farthest Reaches!
Who is this Scot-loving lady?
