The Meddlers of Moonshine cover reveal~

Welcome to the latest cover reveal for The Meddlers of Moonshine by A.E. Decker with artwork by the talented Cary Vandever. If that's not creepy, I don't know what is! Puts me in the mood for Halloween already.

The Meddlers of Moonshine is the second book in the Moonfall Mayhem series by A.E. Decker and will be published by World Weaver Press on October 25, 2016.

~About the Book~

Something is rotten in the town of Widget, and Rags-n-Bones knows it's all his fault. Ever since he snitched that avocado from Miss Ascot's pack, things have been going wrong. Armed with a handful of memories he never realized he had, Rags-n-Bones searches for a way to put right whatever he did to Widget in the past. If only he knew what it was! Unfortunately, the only person who seems to have answers is a half-mad youth that only Rags can see.

Widget is also suffering from a ghost infestation that has the townsfolk almost as spooked of outsiders as they are of actual spooks. While Rags-n-Bones seeks answers in the past, Ascot offers the town leaders her service as an exorcist, only to be handed an ultimatum: banish the ghosts or be banished herself!

Who's meddling with Widget? To catch the culprit, Ascot and Rags-n-Bones must match wits with a shifty sorcerer, a prissy ex-governess, and a troublingly attractive captain before the town consigns itself to the graveyard of history.

~About the Author~

A. E. Decker currently resides in Pennsylvania. She holds degrees in English and Colonial American History and has a macabre fascination with the French Revolution. Other obsessions include chess, the Headless Horseman, chocolate, and DALEKS! A former ESL tutor, tai chi instructor and doll-maker, she now spends her time picking apart tropes and putting them back together in the strangest ways she can think of. Like all writers, she is owned by three cats. Hers are named Dorian, Xavi, and Bucky.

~Praise for the Moonfall Mayhem series~

“Falling of the Moon is a fantasy fairytale like nothing I have read before. Mystery and secrets take you to a fantastic mystical world sure to have a book two. It is Pirates of the Caribbean meets Cinderella. Looking forward to Ascot’s next adventure. Strong and determined with her loyal friends she will certainly make the Moonfall Mayhem a great series of books. I am ecstatic that this is just the start to what will be a truly great trilogy.”— Girl + Book

"I'd say it's like Shrek meets The Wizard of Oz if Dorothy were Wednesday Addams and Toto a talking cat with bat wings. Fun and funny with many laugh-out-loud moments. Can't wait for the next book in the series!"— Susan Sullivan, author of the Cleo Tidwell Paranormal Mystery series

"A unique and clever fantasy, The Falling of the Moon is a thoroughly entertaining read from first page to last. Very highly recommended and certain to be an enduring favorite."—Midwest Book Review

The Meddlers of Moonshine will be available in trade paperback and ebook via,, World Weaver Press, and other online retailers, and for wholesale through Ingram.

Writer Rebooting

I've been quiet this summer.

It's been that kind of year. The kind of year where I take long, unexpected breaks from writing. Sometimes I plan it. Sometimes I don't. It just happens.  I had ambitions to get more writing done this year than I did, but I'm trying to be easy on myself because life happens and it's nobody's fault.

I still have lots of projects I'm working towards completing. I just may have some surprises left in me yet ;)

Stay tuned....
