The title of my second book, Blood Moon, sounds like it's about vampires, doesn't it. But it's not. I chose the titles of my first two books, Cooper's Moon and Blood Moon, because of a preoccupation I have with the moon. Some people are "sun" people (my wife) and some are 'moon" people (I am one of those).
The titles also represent the general feeling of the book. For instance, I chose the title, Blood Moon, because the story deals with human trafficking and the terrible consequences of that world-wide problem.
Finally, the blood moon, the first full moon after the harvest moon, is so named because, according to legend, native Americans hunted under the light of the moon and the fields ran with the blood of their prey. It is in this setting, under the light of the blood moon, that Cooper and his friends hunt their prey, who are themselves predators.

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,"
