Is it bad of me to use the Celebrate the Small Things blog hop to highlight a new book? In my defense, I've made a new friend as a result and that's totally worth celebrating. AND HE'S A WHOVIAN TOO! Anyone who likes Doctor Who gets an instant win in my book.
Under A Hunter's Moon Blurb
Richard Parsons is a lupine, one of the many breeds of shape-shifters living in Seattle. Mortal legends of his kind call them werewolves.
When a traveling exhibition returns to Seattle, Richard takes a nighttime visit, with plans that go beyond seeing a particular display. However, he is unprepared for the memories and emotions that come flooding back.
"Under A Hunter's Moon" is the first of the "Shadows Over Seattle: Prequel" series, giving readers a chance to meet the characters who will be appearing in the main series. Every story is a snapshot of an event in that character's past and can be read as a standalone short story, or as part of the series.
At 4,200 words in length, "Under A Hunter's Moon" is a quick, easy, read that introduces readers to the "Shadows Over Seattle" setting.
