Signed Copies of THE RAVEN'S TALE & a TV Appearance

If you're interested in purchasing a signed copy of The Raven's Tale—my new novel about teenage Edgar Allan Poe—the following bookstores have made ordering autographed editions easy.

If you're unable to purchase a copy, I'm happy to report that numerous libraries across the U.S. have already ordered the novel for their shelves! Visit the WorldCat page for TheRaven's Tale to see if your nearest library is stocking the book. If they aren't, most libraries have online forms for requesting the purchase of new titles.


At the tail end of my April cross-country tour for The Raven's TaleAM Northwest, a Portland TV show hosted by Helen Raptis, interviewed me about the book. You can watch what I had to say about writing a novel about the legendary Edgar Allan Poe.
