Sounds like an epic tale to read, and a beautiful companion book.
Thank you for saying so. I enjoy writing the saga and people who listened to the podcast commented on how much they enjoyed the story which prompted me to publish.
Thank you. Emily's World of Design did both covers. The dagger and rose on the cover are original art I commissioned. Both objects play an important role in the entire series. More details about they are in the companion artbook. The creatures you see on the cover there are from the sequel and commissioned artwork within the book. There are more details about them within as well.
How did you come up with the idea for the book?
I've always enjoyed storytelling. I'm a fan of fantasy tales of all kinds and genre's. I was also enjoyed playing video games. I grew up with Atari then Playstation. One of my favortie character was Alucard from Symphony of the Night. In the early 2000's I was playing an online war game where I was part of a kingdom. The province I selected was an undead. I wasn't very good at the game, but I enjoyed creating stories of the battle for my teammates. We would write pieces back and forth in the message boards. I used Alucard as my character. The more popular stories always had a romantic element. I wanted to write something along those lines. Vampires were, and still are, very popular. I wanted something a little different so I decided on a werewolf. I enjoy period pieces so I thought it would be fun to place the setting in the late 1700's of southern France. I wanted to do a love story where it was more about the pure love, extraordinary love between two souls. The story just developed from there. I am also a fan of Easter eggs in movies and television, so a lot of what I do pays homage to folklore and myths. I didn't want to copy or retell them, but present them in a different way. In fact, a big part of the artbook/companion book revolves around the idea that the mythys and legends we all love are actually true and we have been led to believe they are fictional. This becomes an even bigger part of the world of A Cry in the Moon's Light in the sequels. There are some sneak previews in the companion book.
Looks like a good read
Thank you. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it. The artbook / companion guidebook is meant to enhance the overall experience as well.
The book details sound like a great read.

Thank you for your comment. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it. It's the first book in a series with plans to release book two next year. There is an artbook and companion book out as well that helps bring more to the entire world.
This looks like a great read
I hope you get a chance to enjoy the story as well as the companion artbook. The podcast audiobook generated a lot of comments by people enjoying the story. The book has a little bit more than the podcast which opens more to the sequel.
This sounds like a good story.
Thank you. I hope you get a chance to enjoy the story. It was a lot of fun writing it and traveling with the heroine on her journey.
Thank you. I will be sure to pass on the compliment to Emily's World of Design. She designed both covers for me. I incorporated original art that I commissioned for both cover. The dagger and rose in the main title play a part in the story and can be found within the artbook/companion book as well.

Historical Horror Fantasy - that sounds so interesting!
Thank you for sharing this.
Very nice of you to say. I love period pieces and while challenging to stay true to history, it was fun adapting it to this world. The artbook / companion book really expands on this concept as a introduction to the rest of the stories worldview.
This sounds like an interesting book to read.
I hope so. Most who have listened to the audio podcast seemed to enjoy it as their comments indicate. I hope you do as well.
Sounds like an interesting book. I like the cover.
I enjoyed writing it and just finished the sequel in hopes to put it out at the end of next year. The cover designer did a really good job capturing the overall feel of the book. The dagger and rose were special commission pieces from the story. You can learn more about them and their meaning in the companion artbook.
Great book blurb and cover
Thank you! The cover designer did a great job capturing the atmosphere of the book. The blurb does a nice job conveying the basic elements, It's hard to find the right words sometimes to bring out everything. Appreciate your taking the time to comment.
