Tall Tale Books Lunchtime 10/9, New Author's Cave Horror
The first bookstore to host me will host me again. Check out this live video of my reading from the first event. Also I'm helping out a debut horror author.
When The Thing in the Woods premiered in 2017, the first place where I held a formal book signing was Tall Tales Book Shop in Atlanta, GA. Rather than a table at a convention where most of you know me from, it was a full-on party complete with snacks and an author reading.
(Video shot by my friend Kellie Copsey.)
More recently, as the COVID pandemic waned, I had an outdoor Halloween event at the store entitled “Monsters al Fresco” where I would talk to passers-by and convince them to take my books inside to buy and then I’d sign them.
Now that my new steampunk military fantasy Serpent Sword is out, I’m coming back for a third round. On Columbus Day (Oct. 9) from noon until at least 1 PM (and if there are still people about, until interest wanes), I’ll be signing books out front. Although this is on a weekday, the bookstore leadership assured me there’s plenty of foot traffic around that time.
So if you could stop by for a bit around lunchtime on 10/9 (say during a lunch break), that’d be awesome.
Behold A Debut Author’s Cave Horror Book
I’m a regular participant in horror-book groups on Facebook and author Ben Young recently asked group authors if he could do a newsletter swap to promote his debut horror novel Stuck, which premiered 9/22. It looks like it’s got some pretty good reviews on Goodreads.
Each death is unique. Will you recognize when yours begins?
John Camden doesn't realize he's dying, yet the physical signs are becoming more clear, and he's having recurring visions where he is trapped in a tight space.
Everything changes when his best friend Robbie convinces him to go on a poorly planned caving trip as a form of immersion therapy.
Soon the lines of reality blur as John finds himself lost and alone, deep underground where all is not as it seems, and the person he trusted most may have sinister intentions.
Looks like a more psychological version of the movie The Descent.
