Cover and promo copy for book two of The Madrigals!

With an anticipation I have long held back like a team of wild horses, I can finally begin to give my fans and fans of The Phantom of the Opera a glimpse into my upcoming release ABENDLIED, book two of The Madrigals! For years I have studied Gaston Leroux's most mysterious character, Philippe Georges Marie, the Comte de Chagny. My favorite in all of classic literature the mystery behind this man sparked my imagination and so much more. MADRIGAL begins four years after the events in Leroux's novel, picking up on famous 'plot hole' in the book and branching out from there. ABENDLIED, though second in this series it can be read without reading MADRIGAL... a plus. I won't say more expect if you are a fan of Philippe de Chagny or are curious about him... read on.

Here is ther promo copy for ABENDLIED just released by my publisher! (Abendlied will hit the shelves October 2009) Stay tuned!
(Madrigal can be purchased at all major book retailers and online retailers. Here is a link for those interested!
