I just sent off Blood Moon to Tris (my agent) this past Monday. I mailed it around 2:30 a.m. Time to celebrate. I was able to edit the book in a little over a month and a half--it took about 10 months to write. The final version is about 465 pages long.
In the first part of the book, Cooper heads to Southern Ohio to help an old friend, a Catholic priest, who is getting threatening phone calls. That trip leads him and his group of crazy friends into a snake pit of danger--A Russian gang, an Ohio Valley militia, and dealers in body parts. In the meantime the priest disappears and a girl goes missing.
I'll fill you in on more of the plot later. I'll also upload some selections from the book once Tris has had a chance to read it.

Blood Moon Rising, Cooper's second in his trilogy, will be out at the end of March, maybe sooner! It's even better than the first ~ Cooper gets closer and closer to solving the mystery of his son's disappearance.
One review from Jack Driscoll, award winning author of Lucky Man, Lucky Woman
"The novel is so richly cinematic that I read it while simultaneously imagining each of the chapters and scenes playing out on the silver screen... the suspense high-tension from beginning to end."
"Lovers of the genre will find much to keep them engrossed. The author successfully raises tension with gripping descriptions and emotional dialogue,"
