The "Deluxe" Edition

The Night's Dark Shade is now available in hardcover, complete with a lovely dust jacket. I just think that every respectable book should have a hardback version of itself. Share

I just finished reading your book. It was beyond fantastic! Do you have another one in the making??

The Cathars... how strange they were. And yet it seems that so many of the secular beliefs today are just recycled Cathar doctrine.

Thanks so much, Coffee! Yes, I am in the middle of a novel about my Irish ancestors and will also be writing about the Philippines during the Japanese invasion.

Yes, there is nothing new under the sun....

Congratulations! I will have to get the hard copy and keep it in my 'library' of favorite books, along with your others.

The Night's Dark Shade is still one of my favourite books I've read so far this year! (and I've read a lot! hehe)

I really can't wait to read Trianon.

Thank you so much, Julygirl!

Thank you so much, Martina! I have your copy of TRIANON ready and will mail it to you this weekend!

Yes, I agree! Hardcovers last much longer than softcover--especially if it is lent out as all good books should be.

It seems the Cathars are all in vogue these days. The History Channel had a few programs yesterday (or was it two days ago?) that went into detail about them--I think the subject was Notradamus; or maybe the AntiChrist? Maybe both, LOL. And of course, they were painted as level headed and "right" Christians, who suffered at the hands of the Church--for telling the "truth" about things, among these being that the Catholic Pope would be the AntiChrist. Sigh. Nothing new under the sun, is right.

I'm very excited to read about the topic of your next book, Elena! I can't wait to read that one, too. =)
