Dispatches From the Farthest Reaches

Busy, busy! Here's an update on what's been going on lately: a couple new interviews, an eerie new book trailer and a surprise.

Creepy Book Trailers Are All the Rage

THALO BLUE, my latest novel is available on Amazon.com, Sony, and Smashwords and will be coming on line at all the other retailers in the coming weeks. Here's the teaser trailer:

I talk with my hands but you can't see that on radio

I recently sat down with Giovanni Gelati for his G-Zone radio program to discuss the writing process, e-book marketing, and polar bears. Yes. I said polar bears.

Okay, NOW you can see me talk with my hands

A week ago I did another interview regarding THALO BLUE with EZread.com, this time on video, and must mention that no little white dogs were harmed in production or post-production. Seriously. She's fine. In fact, she lives in the lap of luxury. And I envy her free time.

On The Gathering Storm: Audio book 

Coming soon is the audiobook version of my debut novel "On The Gathering Storm" narrated by the talented and suitably creepy-sounding Jeffrey Kafer. The audio book will be available at all the biggest retailers on the web very shortly. Watch this website for links to this exciting version of my story when they are available. Here's the new cover art for those of you who salivate over these kinds of things.


  1. My mind is 'bending' with anticipation! Can't wait for the audio book format of "On The Gathering Storm!" TOO COOL!

    And the G-Zone Radio piece was fun. Learned lots of interesting "Mc-Facts" during the interview. Very entertaining! ("Polar bears on the front lawn...I KNEW IT!!!")--teehee!

    And as for the EZRead video conversation about THALO BLUE, well, what's not to love about a floating head and hands? (ha ha) Except now I have to start reading THALO BLUE over again because of the intriguing suggestion that Emile Hirsch would make a good Sebastion Redfield. I'll need to totally reboot and recompute on that one! It'll be fun! :)

  2. Mindbender McFact. I smell a new children's series of novels, Ann. You have a way with words, my dear...and I can't help but think that this particular 'paranormal sleuth' has a pet polar bear too.

    As for, Emile Hirsch, well, that's just what occurred to me on the spur of the moment. I can't remember if I said this in the video interview or not, but I never gave actors much thought when I was working on the book. When I write, I most definitely picture a face that I've never seen before to become that of the main characters. I need to do this, or I fear I would type-cast them before they get really cooking. I need to know they won't up and do something completely predictable on me.
