New title coming out…

I finished up my final editing pass over the weekend, and I think it's time to post the cover for what will be my most recent and my longest published work to date:  THE INN. THE INN is about a high school band who takes a school trip to a music festival in Alabama, and focuses on their student-teacher, a 22-year-old college senior named Kimberly Bouton.  But this inn has some strange goings-on, and both the teacher and the kids experience that strangeness first hand. I haven't written the blurb yet, but I'm working on it.  This is a serial-killer-horror type of novel (or is it still a novella at around 37000 words?  Probably...) with the standard trappings of horror novels of this type.  I wouldn't call it "extreme horror" -- there are no graphic descriptions of -- well, anything, really.  But it's full of mature and disturbing occurrences, like most horror novels. I've alway been a fan of horror movies, even the slasher-type of movies (though I think it's been really overdone and I haven't seen many in the last several years), and I recently read some novels by indie horror writer William Malmborg , especially one called TEXT MESSAGE and one called NIKKI'S SECRET.  After I read them, I thought that I could probably write something like those stories, and this is my attempt.  I'd like to think that it has my usual level of character development (for better or worse) but I don't think it is for every reader.  If you don't care for this sort of horror novel, take a pass on this one.  OTOH, if you liked RED DRAGON or SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, you might not be totally put off by this one. THE INN, a horror thriller which clocks in at about 37000 words and contains a sample chapter of THE CAVE as well.  Here's the cover: The Inn Book CoverI'll be posting links to it on Amazon in a day or so... *****
