Happy Thursday! It’s the next-to-last day of The Haunting of Chatham Hollow blog tour for this week (you can find Staci and me at Sally Cronin’s fabulous blog on Saturday). Thank you to everyone who has stuck with the tour, left comments, and shared your thoughts. Staci and I both appreciate your awesome support!

For my final stop, I’ll be visiting D. L. Finn, a wonderful friend and Story Empire colleague with a perpetually sunny disposition and a whimsical outlook on life. I love that she has never lost her magical sense of childhood, an outlook reflected in her writing. She’s a diverse author with a collection that spans novels to short stories, poetry, and children’s books.

Her most recent release, A Voice in the Silence is both suspenseful and highly imaginative. I loved the characters—including the four-legged ones! You can find all of Denise’s releases on her Amazon Author Page.

When you’ve finished browsing, I hope you’ll join me on her blog where I’ll be introducing my final character, and lead protagonist, Victor Rowe. By this point—if you’ve been following along on the tour—you’ve heard a lot about him!

Comments are closed on this post, but I hope you’ll join me THERE.

Happy Hump Day! Thanks for joining Staci Troilo and me as we wind down our tour for The Haunting of Chatham Hollow. After today, only one two stops remain, but Staci and I have saved two highly intriguing characters for last.

Staci is visiting John W. Howell, a highly supportive blogger, friend, and Story Empire colleague. John is a wonderful storyteller with a body of work that ranges from action thrillers—the John Cannon series—to paranormal suspense as evident in Eternal Road. I recommend them all and am eagerly awaiting the follow-up to Eternal Road. To browse John’s collection of novels, visit his Amazon Author Page.

After you’ve had a look-see, be sure to pop over to John’s blog where Staci will be introducing Rebekah Fetzinger, head of the Chamber of Commerce in Chatham Hollow. This is one lady you don’t want to miss—and should be very careful to cross paths with!

Happy Thursday! Today is the last stop this week for The Haunting of Chatham Hollow blog tour. Today, I’d like to introduce you to a particularly chameleon-like character. If you’ve been following the tour, you’ve heard the name Benedict Fletcher creep up more than once.

Today, Benedict makes an appearance at Craig Boyack’s blog.

Craig is one of my oldest online friends. Story Empire initially grew from Craig and I discussing Halloween promo for our book releases way back in the day. We roped Staci Troilo and Harmony Kent into the discussion, and the rest, as they say, is history!

Craig keeps things imaginative and lively at SE, as well as in his work. He’s known for a vivid imagination with genres that cross speculative fiction, cyberpunk, science-fiction, fantasy and all things odd. He’s the author of the ongoing Lizzie and the Hat Series but you can discover all his work on his Amazon Author Page. Take some time and browse his release. I guarantee they’re colorful and entertaining (my favorite is Grinders).

When you’re through browsing, join me at Craig’s place, where my shifty spiritualist, Benedict Fletcher sits down to chat with another medium. Comments are closed on this post, but I hope to see you THERE.

Hello, friends, and thank you for joining me on the short blog tour Staci Troilo and I are rolling out for our co-authored release, The Haunting of Chatham Hollow. We’ve been taking turns introducing various characters, and today I’m up!

I’ll be visiting Story Empire colleague and friend, Gwen Plano. I am so thankful to know Gwen, one of the kindest and most respectful people you’re likely to meet online. In addition to being a sweetheart of a person, she’s also a talented author of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

I’ve been swept away by both her memoir (written as Gwendolyn M. Plano) and her fictional series, the latest entry being The Culmination which I found particularly strong. The entire series can be found on her Amazon Author Page.

After you’ve had a look-see at Gwen’s titles, hop over and join us on her blog where I’ll be introducing the second set of sisters who factor into my 1888 timeline in The Haunting of Chatham Hollow.

It’s day four of The Haunting of Chatham Hollow book tour! Thank you for visiting with me and Staci during our short tour for our co-authored release. We’re highly chuffed (“chuffed” in honor of our Brit friend, Harmony Kent) about this book and excited that Harmony is hosting today.

Harmony is a brilliant multi-genre author, with a wonderful sense of humor. She’s also one of the founding members of Story Empire. Her most recent release, Life & Soul: Book 2 in the Soul Poetry Series is an exquisite and reflective collection that I highly recommend.

I’ve read numerous releases by Harmony, all of which you can find on her Amazon Author Page. Be sure to browse her many titles which span the gamut from fiction and non-fiction, to short stories, poetry, and novels. When you’re through, be sure to visit Staci and Harmony as Staci introduces her female protagonist Greer Faraday, editor of the Chatham Hollow Chronicle.

Happy Monday! It’s a new week which promises to be a busy one for the short tour Staci Troilo and I are unrolling for our new release, The Haunting of Chatham Hollow.

Today, I’m visiting Story Empire colleague and amazingly talented author, Beem Weeks. If you’re unfamiliar with Beem’s work, I suggest correcting that oversight post-haste. Beem is a literary story-teller who excels at character voice and narrative. Whether writing short fiction or novel length, he’s guaranteed to keep you flipping pages. Having read all his short story collections, and his novel, Jazz Baby, I can easily vouch for that!

You can find all of Beem’s work on his Amazon Author Page. After you’ve had a good browse, hop over to join us on Beem’s blog, where I’ll be introducing a pair of sisters who don’t always see eye to eye.

Happy Thursday! Today is day two of the short blog tour Staci Troilo and I are unrolling for our new release, The Haunting of Chatham Hollow.

Today is my turn for visiting, and I’m kicking things off with a talented lady, friend, and Story Empire colleague—Jan Sikes.

Jan’s latest collection of books is her White Rune Series. I’ve already pre-ordered book three, Saddled Hearts, the final release in this romantic suspense trilogy, and can’t wait for it’s October 19th release.

You can see all of Jan’s books on her Amazon Author Page, including her Flowers and Stone series, a fictional retelling of her life with musician, Rick Sikes. Be sure to check out her work, then hop over to visit us on her blog, where I’ll be introducing Aaron Brock, a newspaper editor from the town of Chatham Hollow—in 1888!

Hello and happy Tuesday! If you live in the U.S., I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and holiday. Today kicks off the short blog tour Staci Troilo and I are unrolling for our new release, The Haunting of Chatham Hollow.

Staci is starting things off with a visit to Joan Hall.

Joan is a good friend and a sister blogger at Story Empire. She’s also a talented author with a roster of fabulous releases that encompass mystery and romantic suspense with a splash of folklore. I highly recommend her Driscoll Lake Series and Cold Dark Night, book one of her new Legends of Madeira Series. You can find all of Joan’s titles on her Amazon Author Page. Pick a title and you’re certain to swept away in the small town settings she creates.

Comments are closed on this post, but I hope you’ll hop over to Joan’s blog where Staci will be introducing her protagonist, Aiden Hale. Just follow this LINK!

Visiting Today!

Happy Thursday! I’m off in the blogosphere today for a visit and friendly chat with Rox Burkey. If you’re unfamiliar with Rox, she’s a talented author of both novels and short stories, and an expert interviewer. I was flattered when she asked me to chat with her. I loved the insightful questions she posed. If you get a chance, pop over and see what it’s all about, You can find us HERE.

Book Tour Day 4: Things Old and Forgotten by Mae Clair #speculativefiction #magicalrealism #fantasy #newrelease

A new week, and a new round of visits for Things Old and Forgotten. Today, I’m visiting Story two wonderful friends. Story Empire colleague, Gwen Plano, and my “PenderPal,” Marcia Meara.

Gwen is one of the kindest people you’ll meet online, an all around generous and giving person who is also a talented author of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. I first encountered Gwen’s optimism and resilience through reading her memoir Letting Go Into Perfect Love. She has an amazing life story.

Her versatility as an author really comes through in her Contract series. I found the most recent release The Culmination particularly strong, but highly recommend them all. The entire series can be found on her Amazon Author Page.

While visiting Gwen, I’ll be sharing an excerpt from my short story, Resurrecting Merlin. If you have a moment, hop over and JOIN US. 🙂



Marcia Meara is a sweetheart with the best sense of humor I know! She is highly supportive of other authors, and has regular features to promote them on her blog The Write Stuff. We both share love of the fictional character Aloysius X. L. Pendergast (hence PenderPals) and Harry Dresden (which makes us Dresdenphiles).

I’ve devoured everything Marcia has written. Her Riverbend Series is highly engrossing, and her Wake-Robin Ridge Series features a character named Rabbit who is guaranteed to steal your heart. You can find both series as well as novellas and more on her Amazon Author Page.

Because Marcia has such a fun sense of humor, I’m sharing an excerpt from my short story Miss Lily Makes A Wish (the singular comedic tale in the collection) while visiting her today. HOP OVER to see what it’s all about!


And an update:
The wonderful and uber-supportive Sally Cronin is featuring Things Old and Forgotten along with an early 5-star review of the book on the Smorgasboard Cafe and Bookstore. If you’re not familiar with Sally, you’re missing out connecting with one of the sweetest, friendliest, kindest, and as I said—uber-supportive—bloggers you’ll find online. Sally is also a talented writer with a vast collection of books you can find HERE. I wish you happy reading!
