Hey there, ladies and gents! Carrie here. I decided to sneak in a post during E.J's week, because he's much too humble to mention his new release. ;) I present to you...


Jenny Moonsong recently inherited the title of "monster hunter" and an ancient tribal journal/how-to manual passed down by her Apache ancestors. Unfortunately, a lot of on-the-job training is required to be a monster hunter, and unlike her computer repair business, this gig could literally kill her.

Dark Prelude finds the feisty protagonist, Jenny, searching for her best friend Marshal's missing father in the midst of a freak, West Texas winter storm. To survive the frigid night, she'll have to deal with a hated town rival, face a monstrous creature no Moonsong hunter has ever encountered before, and undo a mysterious curse. Can she keep everyone alive? If not, who will pay the ultimate price?

Dark Prelude is approximately 17,000 words, or 53 pages, and it's the third volume of the Moonsongs Booksan ongoing series of New Adult, paranormal-horror-action novelettes.

What others are saying about Dark Prelude:

"The book's unique glory is E.J. Wesley's paranormal writing, which succeeds in placing you on the edge of your seat through isolation, vivid metaphor, first person voice, and the use of the wide open vistas of Texas." Michael Offutt, Speculative Fiction Author ~ Goodreads Review

"This character is just such a blast to read. Who knew monster hunting could be so much fun?" Tanya ~ Goodreads Review

Where to find the Moonsongs Series:

Blood Fugue, Moonsongs Book 1

Witch's Nocturne, Moonsongs Book 2

Dark Prelude, Moonsongs Book 3

What others are saying about the Moonsongs Series:

"You won't find any romantic, skinny, sparkling werewolves here. What you will find is something scary and atmospheric like King's "Cycle of the Werewolf" that will leave you wanting more." Michael Offutt, author of Slipstream

"-- a tense story with some unique elements. A very good read!" Alex J. Cavanaugh, Amazon Bestselling Author of CassaFire and CassaStar

"--reminds me of t.v. episodes; short, sweet, resolved in under an hour. But I’m talking good, interesting t.v.. The kind that draws you in and leaves you eagerly awaiting next week's episode." Books & Things Blog

"The writing is amazing - even in just a few short pages, you can see that right off the bat. It really engages you in the story and keeps you reading along until the end." Missy's Reads & Reviews Blog

"Blood Fugue has one of those endings that you least expect, giving it that "OMG" reaction." Insane About Books Blog

"...the story has a Stephen King feel to it. I wasn't talking about the elements of horror. Actually, I was referring to the comfortable way the characters move within the story." Brinda Berry, Author ~ Goodreads Review, Blood Fugue

About the Author:

E.J. Wesley resides in South Texas. He holds degrees in psychology and counseling, but prefers to examine the heads of fictional characters over the living ones. He likes his food and his stories spicy, and tries to give a little extra 'kick' to paranormal, horror, and the other genres he writes. In true Texas fashion, he is very neighborly, and enjoys chatting about books, movies, music, and family. He is the author of the Moonsongs books, a series of speculative paranormal action novelettes, with a Texas twist. Say 'howdy' at:  Blog | Twitter | Facebook | Goodreads
