Though the official release date is still May 19th, we are hosting a book release party for “Power Tools in the Sacred Grove” between 4 and 7 pm at The Alley tomorrow. We sill have cake, unspecified beverages, and chocolate undead bunnies. I will read from the book around 5:15 pm and copies will be available for sale and signing.
The sequel to “Camp Arcanum” continues the horror/comedy of sex, magick, and power tools. After only a few weeks in Arcanum Ohio, Marc Sindri finds himself in love with Brenwyn the witch; hospitalized by Jeremiah Stone’s sex-conjured demon; and woefully behind in his construction deadlines to open the new renaissance faire by May first. Moving in with Brenwyn for protection from further supernatural attacks during his rehabilitation, Marc delegates the work on Arcanum Faire to his minions, Eleazar the ren faire libertine and Michael the overwrought artisan.
The path to the faire’s opening day is not smooth, obstructed by invisible tentacle demons, undead skinless bunnies, interference from OSHA and even the Vatican, but Marc slowly recovers. With luck, he will soon be healthy enough to lift a chainsaw or survive sex. Through a vegan Thanksgiving, a tool-bedecked Christmas, and lovers’ spats with a woman that can throw lightning bolts, Marc makes his way mostly unscathed.
If only his semi-erotic dream about hedgetrimmers and a sacred grove didn’t end up leaking into Brenwyn’s sleeping mind.
“Power Tools in the Sacred Grove” is published by Post Mortem Press and will be available in ebook and trade paperbacks. The event will be at 3502 W Dublin-Granville Rd., Columbus OH 43235
