Dark Moon is on the horizon…

IMG_4715Remember Claire and Brian Stone from Harvest Moon? Yeah you know the ones…Lexie’s no good abusive parents? Well they are back in a way you never imagined. Dark Moon is on the horizon and will be told from Claire’s point of view. The inspiration for this short little novella was actually all the loyal readers who kept asking how it all began. Why Claire stayed with Brian when she clearly hates him. Why she chose to have two daughter with him. Two daughters she seemed to loath more than she loathed Brian, and that says a lot.

Dark Moon, A Harvest Series Novella

Where does evil come from…Is it born or is it created?

Claire grew up isolated; a secret her parents kept after a desperate attempt to shut out the cruel world that had wronged them. But at fifteen years old, Claire’s desire to step beyond the boundaries of her parent’s seclusion outweighs all consequences she may face if caught. When Claire’s scheme to be set free becomes a reality, it’s Brian who promises to help her, protect her even. Until Brian becomes just another pawn in Claire’s evil charade.

Dark Moon is a short novella that parallels Claire in 1991 at fifteen and Claire in 2007 and will come with a disclaimer similar to Angela. While all of the books in The Harvest Series are targeted toward young adults, some of the content in Dark Moon is rather edgy and intended for an older teen audience.

Now with Dark Moon just about ready to go, Full Moon, The Harvest Series, #3 will be top priority. But one thing you should know…you have to read Dark Moon BEFORE you read Full Moon. It’s imperative. Now, with that said, if there’s anyone who can’t read Dark Moon, this doesn’t mean you will be lost in Full Moon, but Dark Moon paves the way for a lot of the Stone family secrets that will emerge throughout Full Moon. While you’ll still see who, what, when, and where… you won’t necessarily understand the WHY! And that’s all I will say about that.

As of now, Dark Moon will be out sometime this summer. Hopefully by July, maybe sooner if everything falls into place. Please feel free to send me an email me at author@meganmccooey.com if you’d like a signed copy once it’s released and I will get the invoices sent out just as soon as we are ready to publish!

Also, keep your eyes open for a Dark Moon Cover reveal….Coming Soon

And if you haven’t started The Harvest Seriesnow is as good a time as any… so take a look around and feel free to comment, email or reach out to me in any way.

★★★★★ Reviews for Crossroads!

“Loved it. extremely powerful read. I have never read a book that has affected me so emotionally as this story has. Highly recommend it. If you only read one book this week make it this one. You will not be sorry that you did.”

-Teresa Rhodes-Smith via Amazon Reviews.

 “I emotionally felt everything Delia was feeling. You are an excellent writer. Thank you for sharing. I will definitely recommend this book.”

-Teresa Rhodes-Smith to me, via Facebook.

“I absolutely loved this book! I couldn’t put it down. The character development was impressive for a relatively quick read and it was very realistic. It should be on the required reading list for highschool students as it clearly delivers a very powerful message. I can’t wait to read more of Megan McCooey’s work!” 

-Mia Scalfani via Amazon Reviews

“For my fellow bookworms…this is a fantastic read authored by a talented, long time friend of mine. I read it in one sitting…loved it! I was also super excited to find out not only did she thank me in the acknowledgements, she named the doctor in the book after me! Wayyy more recognition than I deserve for a fun medical ed conversation we had last summer, Megan McCooey and to my teacher friends (or anyone with teenagers)- this should with out a doubt be on the required reading list for highschool students. This incredibly well written story delivers a powerful message.”

-Mia Scalfani to me via Facebook.

Happy Birthday Melissa

Me and You

Stories manifest themselves in the most incredible ways, and mine are no different. While the majority of The Harvest Series came about in a dream, there are facets, which have touched me personally. What writer doesn’t spill personal experiences onto the pages of their work ? People who know me, often wonder if the story is my own. […]
