    How did Everson Croft end up with a talking cat? 
    For that story, we have to go back to my early years as a wizard. 
    With New York City in the dumps, the red light is back on in Times Square. 
    Vampires, dark fae, and exotic entertainers have set up shop, promising pleasures beyond the wildest imagination. But now male clients are turning up stiff — all over. 
    I'm thinking supernatural predator, even as the clues keep drawing me back to Tabitha: a mysterious call girl who is one hundred percent mortal. 
    I need to solve this case before the killer feeds again, but damn if I'm not sinking deeper into Tabitha's dangerous and tantalizing world. 
    Which is exactly what she seems to want... 
    Siren Call is the second prequel in the Prof Croft Novellas series. If you like occult action, spell-crackling suspense, and moments of heart, heroism, and all-out laughter, you’ll love Prof Croft!

    They say it’s a myth. A campfire story to frighten children. One full of horrific deaths and a mysterious evil. 
    But it’s not a myth. 
    On what is supposed to be a night of joyous reunion for Lance Brody, instead he witnesses a terrible crime. A human life taken. The murderer does not flee the scene. Does not attempt to fight back. Instead he only offers Lance these words: “The devil in the woods made me do it.” 
    Knowing that the Universe has guided him to another town that needs his help, Lance Brody and his group of new companions begin to dig deeper into the evil that has plagued the town’s woods for centuries. The more they learn, the more afraid they become, and the more obvious it seems that somebody is trying to stop them. Lance has never seen evil like this, and despite his abilities and his gifts, he doesn’t know if he can win this time. Because the only way to fight … might be too terrifying. 
    Dark Woods is the fifth novel in Michael Robertson Jr's supernatural suspense series featuring LANCE BRODY. With a troubled young hero, mysterious foes, and plenty of paranormal action, fans of Odd Thomas, Supernatural, and the dark unknown are sure to love Lance.

    Sylvie swore she'd never go back to Tassamara. She was wrong. 
    At seventeen, Sylvie Blair left her infant son with his grandparents while she went shopping. She never returned. Twenty years later, she’s devastated to learn of his early, untimely death. But although Dillon’s body is long since buried, his spirit lingers on. 
    And he’s not real happy. 
    He doesn’t like his mom’s job—too dangerous. He doesn’t like her apartment—too boring. And he definitely doesn’t like her love life—non-existent. 
    But when Dillon decides that his parents should be living happily ever after, he sets them on a path that leads deeper and deeper into danger. Can Sylvie let go of the past and embrace the future? And can Dillon survive the deadly energy he unwittingly unleashes?
