Latest Development

The softcover edition of "A Place of Shadows" is now available for pre-order online at Barnes and Noble. Better still, B&N has it on sale for $12.41 (35% off the cover price -- less expensive by far than I can even get it directly from my publisher!) 🤪 Fun fact: ghost stories make wonderful Christmas presents!

New Developments

Hello, Campers!

First of all, for those of you waiting for more installments of the second book, I appreciate your patience!  When writing a story, I always start out with a clear vision of both the opening and the climax, but all those annoying pages in between take some figuring out (a beginning, a muddle, and an end, so to speak.)  I'm hip deep in the outlining process, and after we emerge from the holiday season I hope to be posting chapters on a regular basis.  For what it's worth, though, here's a teaser: the sequel is going to be intense!  Some might even call it a bit of a bloodbath.  So rest assured that I'm still busy working out all the details.

In other news, since everything I've read about independent authorship insists that I need to expand my web presence, I'm doing my best to do just that.  First, for those of you who enjoy Facebook, check out the David Lafferty page and give it a like!  My intention is to save this blog for story chapters and transition the news updates to there.

Second, and more importantly (Drum roll, please!) I now have a website!  Go to for Place of Shadows info and links to both eBook and softcover buying options.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season!  Cheers!

A Place of Shadows is now available!

Attention, Friends and Readers!

The Kindle eBook edition of A Place of Shadows (formerly A Place of Secrets) is now available on!  The paper edition is projected to be available for pre-order on Amazon sometime next week, as well as appearing in various other outlets (Barnes and Noble, Powell's, iBooks, etc) soon thereafter.

As you can probably imagine, this is a very exciting time for me, and I'd like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support and readership!
