Dani Erickson is a hereditary demon hunter. The seventh child of a seventh child, she was born to battle the nasty monsters she sees infesting her small Colorado town. With the help of her best friend Allie and her sensei Wick, she’s getting into fighting trim — just in time for her first day of high school.
I hope you’ll enjoy meeting Dani. She and I have some interesting commonalities. We’re both the youngest kids of large families, and both the only girls! However, I only have FIVE older brothers, so no extraordinary demon fighting skills for me *lol* Not to mention that I’m lots more like Allie than I am like Dani. I totally fell for the “act like a girl! We’ve got enough boys in this family” admonition, so it’s been fun watching Dani rebel 😀
I’ve really enjoyed imagining Dani’s world in these two stories, but boy is she going to get in lots of trouble in the novel I have planned. Watch out Dani! The demons are out to get you … literally.

Hah, I knew German administration would throw stones my way when I decided to begin publishing over here too. To put up my eBooks on German eBook retailers sites, I need ISBN numbers which are not provided by the retailers (unlike, say, Smashwords). To get ISBN numbers in Germany, I have to be a) German (check) and b) a publisher. Individuals have to pay 85€ per ISBN (calculate the costs for 8 novels published or soon-to-be-published if you like).
Frustrated with the system, I thought about this long and hard. In the end, I decided to become a publisher. The day before yesterday, I went and registered The Independent Bookworm as a small German publisher. Now, I can publish my own books and others.
For all of us, this is the next step. Up to now, we were a bunch of independently publishing authors, now we’re a publisher with several independent authors. I wonder if/how that will affect the way we work, but I don’t think much will change .
Champagne and chocolate of the virtual kind to everybody!

My Young Adult Fantasy novel “Scotland’s Guardians”, now also available in print, will be free on Amazon from today till Wednesday. That makes 5 full days!
As a reminder, here’s the trailer:
And the cover blurb:
Since Bryanna grows up in Scotland, she is familiar with hobgoblins, selkies and kelpies from the tales of her mother country. But she is very surprised when she starts seeing these creatures one day. Is she hallucinating? Before she can ask her father’s advice, he is kidnapped by a woman whose scent seems awfully familiar. Instead of calling the police, Bryanna follows the kidnapper and lands smack-dab in the middle of the adventure of her life. It’s just as well she knows the old legends and myths well. The world she lands in is murderously dangerous. And even if she survives the journey, she is fated to kill her father.
tell all your friends about it. The more downloads the better. And if I get a review or two, that’s be lovely too. Thank you for sour support.
