Hey Gavin! Its good to see you're still hanging with me on The Nightlife!

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer:

The Nightlife has at least one more novel starring Aaron, a.k.a. Richard.

I have something else in the works that will expand The Nightlife world into a much larger all-encompassing story. Aaron, Michelle, Urvashi, the wolf pack, all of these characters will play a part in this new series.

Aaron is very much alive in my plans for future novels, though he won't always be the main character.

This new series will begin towards the end of this year, and carry through into 2016.

I hope you enjoy this epic urban fantasy story soon to come, where I delve deep into the origins of all things supernatural. I like to think of it as Thor meets Stargate, meets The Nightlife.

Towards the beginning of December I will have a manuscript that will need pre-pub Beta read.

All my novels are adult PNR/UF with an edge of erotica and very graphic violence. ADULT reading material.

Travis

The first is a FREE download here on Goodreads and everywhere else (Amazon, B&N, etc..) "The Nightlife New York". You can read and review that if you like.

The second in the series needs reviews. "The Nightlife New York". I just released it a few days ago. Contact me by email for a manuscript. Its listed on Amazon KDP select right now.

Thanks,

Travis

I haven't really gotten with the program on goodreads until recently. I just posted my novel here on goodreads, but you can download it from smashwords for free:

I would very much appreciate your critique and reviews.

Thanks,

Thanks for joining me. I'm so buried in WIP's that my only reading is for exchange of critiques.

I am willing to do some critiquing to get a critique. Let me know if your interested in Urban Fantasy.


Dianna Hardy Thanks for the add :)
