Today is the official re-release of my second novel The Haunting of Drang Island. All three books in the Northern Frights series have been out of print for several years now, so I’m glad to see the second book in the series rise like…uh…like a giant serpent out of the water. It’s the story of a teen going on a holiday on Drang Island (near Vancouver Island), meeting a girl, and…well…a horrible haunting occurs (really, folks, the details are too scary to give you, but there are ghosts and apparitions and shades and Icelandic swear words—well, they sound like swear words).The cover is done by the amazingly talented Derek Mah. I really love the feel that he’s given this series–scary, but somehow a little humorous. The book is intended for grade four and up and is being released in e-format only.
The Haunting of Drang Island came out in 1998 (that year Saving Private Ryan won the Oscar for best picture and the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley cup in case you were wondering). As I did with Draugr, I decided to keep the text as original as possible and only fixed a few grammatical mistakes and misspellings of Icelandic names. Just click on this link if you want to see the web page I’ve put up about the book.
I’ve priced The Haunting of Drang Island at $2.99.
The last book in the series, The Loki Wolf will roaring to life soon.
In the next few weeks the book will also be available at B&N, iBooks, and Kobo.
Thanks for being part of the worldwide release!
P.S. Here’s what the covers look like side by side. Doubly frightening!
