As you guys may or may not have heard…my novella, THINGS WE FEAR, will be released from Samhain Publishing. I’m so grateful to Don D’Auria for believing in me my crazy little stories. Also, , big thanks to my pre-reader/editor/publicist/bud Erin Sweet-Al Mehairi for all of the incredible behind the scenes work she puts in for me. I’m sure the novella won’t come out until sometime next year, but in the meantime…
BOOM TOWN, my next release from Samhain, is available for pre-order at all of your favorite eBook dealers. It drops on April 7th. (click the cover to order through Amazon)
Terror from below!
In the summer of 1979, Eckert, Wisconsin, was the sight of the most unique UFO encounter in history. A young couple observed a saucer-like aircraft hovering over Hollers Hill. A blue beam blasted down from the center of the craft into the hill and caused the ground to rumble for miles.
Now, thirty years later, Eckert is experiencing nightly rumbles that stir up wild rumors and garner outside attention. The earthly tremors are being blamed on everything from earthquakes to underground earth dwellers. Two pre-teens discover a pipe out behind Packard’s Flea Market uprooted by the “booms” and come into contact with the powerful ooze bubbling from within. What begins as curiosity will end in an afternoon of unbridled terror for the entire town.
BOOM TOWN has kindly been mentioned alongside such great Horror Sci-Fi works as The Blob, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and The Tommyknockers. I have always been a huge fan of alien films and TV shows, as well as Coast 2 Coast Am with Art Bell and George Norry. Writing an alien-based story was inevitable. I love this one and have already started work on another…
My promo blitz for this one is going to be kicking into high gear, so you have been warned!
I have a guest post this week over on Brian Moreland’s blog, Dark Lucidity. Check it out HERE
You can also learn more about BOOM TOWN, as well as my first novella, ABRAM’S BRIDGE, and my debut, THE HAUNTED HALLS, in my featured interview over at Horror After Dark. Check that out; HERE
Next week, I will be attending and meeting a bunch of my Samhain brothers at Horror Hound Weekend. Looking forward to that! I’m sure I will have some more stories and plenty of photos to share. I mean, besides the Samhain gang, I ‘m going to get a chance to meet one of my childhood heroes…The Greatest American Hero, William Katt! Yeah, I used to sit on the swing out back of my house when I was a kid singing the theme song ALL DAY. My mom even made me a Ralph doll. I’m sort of psyched… 🙂
