The 40th birthday has come and gone. I had a terrific weekend with friends and family. My wife did a bang-up job with the birthday dinner (beef enchiladas and salted caramel cupcakes for dessert). She also surprised the hell out of me by getting me a Kindle Fire and Amazon gift card. I spent the gift card last night and have enough reading material to keep me busy for a couple of years. Looking forward to reading books by Nate Southard, Victor Gischler, and Jack Ketchum.
Forgotten, my latest horror novel, is available for Amazon. Nook and Kobo versions will follow in the next few months. It's also available to borrow for members of Amazon Prime. Here's the description from Amazon.com:
A 60,000 word novel of terror from the author of The Hollow and The Dead Land Trilogy.
For as long as anyone can remember, The Dwellers have lived on the mountain near Forgotten. After remaining dormant for years, they've returned. Hungry. Demanding sacrifice.
The locals have their eye on unsuspecting travelers, intent on sacrificing them to the Dwellers. As visitors to the town discover, Forgotten is not kind to strangers.
Three groups of travelers are in for a hellish visit to Forgotten. A father's teenage son disappears on the mountain. A pair of vacationers are ambushed on the road outside town. A private investigator delves into the disappearance of a college student, only to become trapped in a nightmare scenario.
Forgotten. Plenty come to visit. Not everyone leaves. You can pick it up here
