This title is currently unavailable.

2nd edition coming in September 2020 from Lacedragon Publishing.

The Sleepless City: Book 3, sequel to Electric Candle.

Published by Dreamspinner Press 6th July 2015.

For as long as Lucas Coate can remember, werewolves have been taught to mistrust vampires. Lucas is an exception—he has close friends who are vampires. The werewolf pack in Boggslake—and their leader, Jacob Coate—have made it clear that Lucas’s association with vampires is barely tolerated, and another transgression will be his last. When Lucas finds out about the plague of werewolf deaths in the area, he wants to help even though his own life may already be in danger.

Declan has been away from Boggslake for ten years, but he isn’t surprised to learn that the internal politics of the Supernatural Council haven’t changed for the better. When a series of burglaries hit close to home soon after he arrives, Declan—a vampire and professional thief—is their prime suspect, although for once, he isn’t responsible. With the council keeping secrets, no one is safe. Time is running out, and for Lucas and Declan, everything is about to change.

  2. Poor Ben!

    I’m really excited by this update for numerous reasons, not the least of which is that awesome progress ticker bar included in this post. How cool is that? What is the projected release date for Family and Reflection?

      Thanks! I really enjoyed writing Declan and Ben interacting. They both took the scene and ran with it.

      I found the site for those progress bars a while back so now include them on my WIP pages – they’re great motivation and also lets the readers know how I’m going with the book. I update them once a month when I post Five Sentence Sundays.

      I’m submitting ‘Family and Reflection’ end of December – the rest is up to Dreamspinner Press.

    I’m a new fan, thank you for the gang, I love their dynamic….
    I was wondering if you ever saw pictures of Flint, OH; the forgotten Ohio… 😉
    I’ve just finished reading Electric Candle and started to search around DreamspinnerPress for more tales from the Sleepless City… and voila
    So I’ll patiently wait… 😉

    Thanks again..

      Hi PJ, nice to meet you, and no I haven’t seen any pictures of Flint, OH. I’d love to though.
      There is a freebie story on here for TSC as well, and hopefully not too much longer to wait before the next two books in the series are available to read.
