NEW RELEASE

I am very proud to announce the release of a new horror-romance novel written by a very dear friend of mine, who goes by the pen name of Erin Kelly, not to be confused with the romance writer of the same name. She is one of my friends that I have met through Karaoke, another one of my interests, which I also share with my wife. I’ve known her about 3 1/2 years, and I’ve attended a few author meetings with her as well. She had one giveaway contest today, and will be giving out more signed copies this week, and promoting its release, which was today 10/25/16.

Her story is set in our hometown of Syracuse, where a virus has caused most of the population to turn into werewolves and vampires. The main character, named Diago, must combat his virus, and try to protect the woman he loves. I haven’t read it yet, but I can’t wait to “sink my teeth into it!” I’m sure I’ll love it, and I bet you will too!
