Official site for the high/dark fantasy books of authors Barb Hendee and J. C. Hendee, including the Noble Dead Saga (a.k.a. The Noble Dead series), the Mist-Torn Witches series, the Vampire Memories series, and TNDS: Tales from the world of the Noble Dead Saga.

Noble Dead Raffle—AND THE WINNER IS… (And some Coming Attractions)…

Charles Shumaker wins the signed hardbound first edition of S3B1: Between Their Worlds.

Delivery instructions have been forwarded to the publisher’s publicity department. Charles’ prize should be shipped by early Tuesday and arrive within ten business days. This concludes the last of the current series of bi-weekly raffles for signed volumes from the Noble Dead Saga.

Don’t be sad, for we’ll have more online events like this in the future. For now, it is time for us to settle into a busy summer schedule of planning for S3B3 [untitled], waiting to see copyedits for S3B2: The Dog in the Dark… oh, and another entry in “Tales from the world of the Noble Dead Saga”…


Yes, indeed, watch for a notice later this week about the (early) release of the first entry in the “Bones of the Earth” sequence, Karras the Kitten. Anyone up for a little dwarven adventure? Also coming sometime in June (maybe earlier) will be the second entry in the “Homeward” sequence called The Feral Path. Of course, this means J.C. has to also find time to do the publishing side. In the meantime, for those who missed it, stop by the “Tales” page at to check out Homeward, I: The Game Piece, already available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble online.

That’s enough of a teaser for now. And most of all, thank you to everyone who joined in on the fun with the raffles.
