Today on A Small Gang of Authors it's "Silly Post Day!" My blog is all about the reasons why I hate to dress up unless I absatively, posilutely have to. Once you read the blog, and especially after you see the photos, you'll understand why.

“Mad Shadows: The Weird Tales of Dorgo the Dowser,” winner of the 2017 Golden Book Readers’ Choice Award for Fantasy. Available worldwide in hardcover, paperback, Kindle, and Nook editions.
“Bonadonna balances the human and the grimness in such a way that one never becomes suffocated. Instead, the humor and wit make the characters seem more real, as some of the characters, including Dorgo, use the humor to deal with the darkness they confront.” — Keith West, Amazing Stories Magazine.
From infernal depths where lost souls mutate into hell-spawned devils, from the other side of the veil that separates the earthly from the unearthly, from an ancient land whose borders cross into other dimensions, the adventures of Dorgo the Dowser pit him against sentient shadows, duplicitous women, unscrupulous men, a criminal underworld of humans and semi-humans, malevolent puppets, strange beasts that time forgot, and beings from another world -- not to mention zombies, killer fauns, vengeful vampires, and raging werewolves. Armed with only a sword and a unique dowsing rod that can detect the ectoplasmic residue of any supernatural presence or demonic entity, and sense the vestiges of magical power used in the commission of crimes, Dorgo walks in the shadows of a world where life is cheap and souls are always up for sale.

Winner of the 2017 Golden Book Judges’ Choice Award for Children’s Fantasy.

In Creepy Hollow, it's Halloween all year long! "Three Ghosts in a Black Pumpkin" -- a spooky Halloween story for children, ages 8 to 14, by Erika M. Szabo and Joe Bonadonna.
“Szabo’s and Bonadonna’s story crackles with action and excitement. Their storytelling moves with the speed of lightning, but never lets the reader get lost. The atmosphere is just spooky enough to be fun but never enough to be too scary. There are also some valuable lessons to be learned along the way. Nikki and Jack must figure out for themselves that while selfishness and greed can lead to a bad end, courage and self-sacrifice can help defeat evil. Szabo and Bonadonna weave this into the story with great skill. I’m unable to do justice to the wealth of detail and action Szabo and Bonadonna managed to pack into this short book. From the very first page, they catch the reader up and then don’t let go until the very last page. Any young reader with an interest in fantasy and adventure should probably like and I recommend it highly.” -- Fletcher Vredenburgh, Black Gate Magazine
“Three Ghosts in a Black Pumpkin” is available worldwide in paperback and Nook editions, and at a very reasonable price, too!
