I’m happy to welcome Mae Clair back to my site today. We share a strange obsession of the mythological and cryptozoological, and not coincidentally, that’s what she’s here to discuss today. And she’s got a great offer for you. Take it away, Mae…
A huge THANK YOU to Staci for allowing me blog space to share some exciting news. Kensington Publishing is doing a Goodreads Giveaway for a paperback copy of my upcoming release, A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS. There will be two—count ‘em two—winners. The giveaway is open now through February 29th (how cool, a leap year). If you’re interested, you can enter here:
A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS is a tale of mystery and suspense centered around events that took place in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. You’ll discover a small river town plagued by tragic history and rumored sightings of the Mothman—a terrifying creature said to haunt an abandoned WWII munitions site.
The characters are everyday people facing extraordinary circumstances—secrets, betrayal, murder. I hope you find the blurb intriguing:
Behind a legend lies the truth…
As a child, Eve Parrish lost her father and her best friend, Maggie Flynn, in a tragic bridge collapse. Fifteen years later, she returns to Point Pleasant to settle her deceased aunt’s estate. Though much has changed about the once thriving river community, the ghost of tragedy still weighs heavily on the town, as do rumors and sightings of the Mothman, a local legend. When Eve uncovers startling information about her aunt’s death, that legend is in danger of becoming all too real…
Caden Flynn is one of the few lucky survivors of the bridge collapse, but blames himself for coercing his younger sister out that night. He’s carried that guilt for fifteen years, unaware of darker currents haunting the town. It isn’t long before Eve’s arrival unravels an old secret—one that places her and Caden in the crosshairs of a deadly killer…
A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS releases on April 26th, but the ebook version is already available from Amazon and all other major booksellers. If you’d like to pre-order you can find a complete list of links here.
In the meantime, I invite you sign up for the paperback giveaway at Goodreads and tell your friends! The Mothman Cometh! 🙂

Good morning, Staci! Just wanted to send a huge “thank you” your way for helping me spread the word about the giveaway for A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS. With all of the research that went into this book it feels like its been a long time in development. I’m excited that April and its release date are almost here!
Happy to do it. And I’m excited for you!
Thanks, friend 🙂
This sounds intriguing. I’m also interested in the “legends” behind many of these creatures. Here in Texas, we have a “Chupacabra” or goat sucker. While most people say it looks like a mutated coyote, the legend that comes from Central America is that it has some human-like attributes.
Hopping over to Goodreads now!
Hi Joan! Thanks for entering the giveaway. I’m so glad the book interests you.
I’ve held a fascination for “creatures” since I was a kid. For several years I did a feature on my blog called “Mythical Monday” where I posted about old legends, myth and folklore. The Chupacabra had it’s own segment. 🙂 I really need to start that up again.
Thanks again for entering my promotion, and best of luck in the giveaway!
Joan, are we sharing a brain again? I should have known something like this would interest you, too.
