Cover Reveal: House of Sorrow #legendsofmadeira

Hey, everyone! It’s been a long time coming (a lot longer than I planned or anticipated) but it’s time to reveal the cover for my upcoming release, House of Sorrow.

This short-story is a prequel to the first novel in the Legends of Madeira series, Cold Dark Night. You’ll hear more about it in the upcoming weeks but in the meantime…


Dream home or damned home?

Ruth Hazelton is over the moon when her husband Lee agrees the nineteenth-century Victorian in Madeira, New Mexico, is the perfect home for them. While he starts his new job as police chief, she sets about unpacking and decorating.

But it’s not long before Ruth needs more. She becomes a fixture in the community, making time for everyone, volunteering, hosting events—she’s every bit the social butterfly her husband is not. Through her friendships, she learns several former residents of her home met with untimely deaths. If she were superstitious, she might fear a curse, but such nonsense doesn’t faze her.

Until the unthinkable happens.

Now, as the end of Ruth’s life draws near, she must find a way to convey her message and stop the cycle to prevent anyone else from suffering in the house of sorrow.


House of Sorrow is scheduled for release the latter part of March. I’ll share the exact date in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, if you didn’t see my post last fall sharing the musical playlist I made for the story, click here.

    1. Thanks, Staci. Would you believe this story is over five years in the making? It started as a 350-word blog post when you and I used to do First Friday Fiction on our blogs.
