Announcing DARLA'S STORY (And a One-of-a-kind Giveaway!)

My debut novel, ASHFALL, is an adventure story, but also a love story about Alex and a tough young woman he meets on page 127 named Darla. As you read ASHFALL you learn a lot about how Alex survives the first two weeks after the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, but not much about Darla's experience with the eruption.

About a year ago, I sat down to fix that. I wrote a novelette--60 pages about everything that happens to Darla from the time Yellowstone erupts to when she meets Alex. About every four months since then I've gotten it out and rewritten it. This fall, it will finally be published in an ebook format. It'll be available for all e-reader platforms for $0.99 or less.

But if you want to read it early, here's your chance. I'm giving away a one-of-a-kind signed paper manuscript with editorial markings from the inimitable Peggy Tierney of Tanglewood Press (thanks for letting me do this, Peggy!) Here it is:

I'll ship it anywhere in the world at my expense. (The books pictured above are not included, just the manuscript.) Want to win? Enter the Rafflecopter below. You can earn extra points every day by tweeting about the giveaway. Good luck!
