With Blood and Rain being my first novel and print book for Samhain, I knew I needed to kick it up a notch. The latest Blog Tour is under way, but this weekend brings that next level mentality: Radio appearances and…A Barnes and Noble Book Signing Event!
Walking into the Barnes and Noble I have frequented since I was in high school and seeing a giant sign with my name, face, and the cover of my book on it was amazing.
Follow that up with finding copies of my book on the actual shelf?
I’m ready to shut my mouth. Too cool.
Friday morning I stopped into the local pop station here in central Maine, 92 Moose, to do an on-air interview with long time morning man extraordinaire, Jon James.
They also had me on over at the country station, B 98.5 So nice to meet everyone and feel the genuine enthusiasm for my accomplishments. I hope I do you guys proud!
The 92 Moose interview can be seen and heard HERE
Tomorrow is the big day. From Noon until 2PM I will be signing copies of Blood and Rain, making friends, and hopefully making some sales.
I even invited Stephen King. 🙂 Not sure if he got my message, but what the hell.
I hope to see some of you out there tomorrow. Come say hi and grab a copy of the book. It really is a great Halloween read. Don’t just take my word for it…..Here’s what the people say:
- “With slashing claws and blood-soaked fur, Glenn Rolfe’s novel will have you howling in terror and delight. A welcome addition to the werewolf mythos and proof that we’re in the presence of a rising star in the genre. Highly recommended!”–Ronald Malfi, author of December Park and Little Girls
- “A major new talent rises from the Maine woods…Rolfe is the real deal, and Blood and Rain is a classic monster novel, full of blood and teeth and the kind of razor sharp writing that makes the pages sing. Small town horror is back, with a vengeance!”–Nate Kenyon, award-winning author of Sparrow Rock, Diablo: Storm of Light and Day One
- “Many authors nowadays get lauded for writing ‘throwback’ horror fiction, but none of them quite goes the distance like Rolfe does in Blood and Rain. Werewolves, silver samurai swords, and small New England towns: it all makes you wish this was twenty years ago so you can take the paperback off a supermarket spinner-rack and huff the yellowed pages.” – Adam Cesare, author of Mercy House and Exponential
- “Brutal, tension-fueled and captivating…Blood and Rain is the best werewolf novel I’ve read since Jeff Strand’s Wolf Hunt.” — Horror After Dark
- “Blood and Rain is a monumental piece of horror fiction.”-Horror Underground
- “(Rolfe) takes his writing cues form Richard Laymon, Jack Ketchum, with some haunts thrown in via the eerie style of Ronald Malfi.” —Oh, For the Hook of a Book
- “A howling good read for werewolf fans.” – Scott Nicholson, The Red Church
- “This is werewolves as they should be.”-Scarlet’s Web
- “Wow! Easily one of the best werewolf books I’ve ever read.”- Hunter Shea, author The Montauk Monster and The Dover Demon
