Just a quick post to let you all know that I've rolled out a new blog. Rather than keeping Dean Murray and Eldon Murphy with separate blogs, I'll just use the same blog and the same mailing list for both author names.

You can find the new blog at deanwrites.com.

I'll be leaving this blog up with all of the old posts on it, but all of the new posts will go to the new blog. I've also created a new mailing list and I'll be moving the current list over to the new list during the next few weeks.

If you signed up to the original list with the 'email' or 'digest' option then you'll be moved over without any effort being required on your part.

I'll be reaching out to those who signed up under the 'no email' option over the next couple of months to confirm whether they would like to be moved to the new list.

October Status Update and A Darkness Mirrored Cover Reveal

A quick update to let you all know that I've been hard at work ever since The Greater Darkness was released. I've released several books as Dean Murray, which is important because the Dean Murray and the Eldon Murphy Reflections books are all set in the same universe. Dean's characters still live in a pretty violent place, but aren't faced with as many morally gray choices so their stories tend to be a little less dark.

Despite that, there are many more similarities between the two series than there are differences, and I've been planning on at least partially merging the two storylines for a couple of years now. The release of A Darkness Mirrored (on November 8th) is an important step in that direction, but I have more news than just that. I've also finished the rough draft of the first 'jointly' written Eldon Murphy/Dean Murray novel, which is tentatively scheduled to come out in May of 2014.

That particular book still needs a name (I'm still calling it Geoffrey, Ben and Jasmin's book in my head), but I think it does a good job of tying both half of the stories together. If you haven't gone ahead and read the Dean Murray Reflections novels then I highly encourage you to go do that. You can start with Broken (a little more focused on the romance and less focused on the violence) for free, or you can go sign up for Dean's mailing list and get download instructions for a free copy of Torn 88 link88 (slightly more violent and action-packed than Broken). It doesn't matter which one you start with because they are two halves of the same story. Even better, they are designed so that after reading one you can still read the other and find out bits and pieces of things that weren't answered in the first book.

Events are about to heat up dramatically for Geoffrey and the Sanctuary pack both. You're not going to want to miss what's coming, or the backstory either one!

The Setup:
Geoffrey has been called a lot of things: warrior, werewolf killer, slave, lover…vampire…soulless. They are all the truth. He's killed hundreds, possibly even thousands of people without a single regret, but that's only part of the truth.

This is the story of the one and only person who called Geoffrey father, the story of an orphan that Geoffrey took in and raised, the girl who would become the woman that he would sacrifice everything for.

This is Lucy's story.

You’ve reached the online home of Eldon Murphy, author of The Greater Darkness.  If you haven’t read The Greater Darkness, there is a link on the right side of the page that will take you to a list of online retailers where it is available.

Unfortunately, I’m probably not going to have the time required for frequent updates, so please don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list so that I can let you know when the sequel to The Greater Darkness is released.  Also, you may want to check out some of the books I’ve written under my pen name, Dean Murray.  At some point in the fairly near future the storyline written by Eldon and the storyline written by Dean are going to merge, and then things are going to get really exciting!
