Introducing: High Lonesome Sound

The day has finally arrived for High Lonesome Sound‘s big launch! I could not be more excited to share this Appalachian gothic tale about mountain magic, deadly secrets, and vengeful demons with you.

Secrets won’t stay buried. Neither will the dead. 

In the sleepy mountain town of Moon Hollow, Virginia, there is a church with a crooked steeple. No one will say for sure how it got that way, but it’s the reason the whole town gathers every Decoration Day to honor the dead.

This year, there are two fresh graves up on Cemetery Hill, a stranger’s come to town, and the mountain’s song is filled with dark warnings.

The good people of Moon Hollow are about to learn that some secrets are too painful to bear, and some spirits are too restless to stay buried.

What people are saying about High Lonesome Sound:

“This story will leave you shivering in the dead of summer.” –Cherie Priest, author of The Family Plot

“A masterful portrayal of flawed humanity struggling to hear the song of the sublime. It’s harrowing, haunting, and ultimately triumphant with a deeply satisfying conclusion.” –Kevin Hearne, NYT Bestselling author of the Iron Druid series

“Some of the best horror I’ve read in ages. Feels like Stephen King after he  really hit his stride.” –Stephen Blackmoore, author of Dead Things

Frequently Asked Questions:

-Where can I buy High Lonesome Sound?

You can purchase it in ebook or print at most online book stores. If you prefer to shop at independent brick-and-mortar stores you can always ask them to order you a copy.
Amazon | B&N | Kobo | iBooks | GooglePlay 

-When will it be available in audio?

Hopefully soon. Producing high-quality audiobooks is important to me, so I’m taking time to find the best partner for this project. Keep an eye out for more news on this as I have it.

Where can I read an excerpt?

The first chapter is here.

-Is High Lonesome Sound part of a series?

No. It is a stand alone novel. However, I do have other stories planned for this genre, which I call “Appalachian Gothic.”

-Will the story scare me?

Short Answer: Probably.

Long answer: It depends on your tolerance for creepiness. If you’re a fan of Stephen King or Shirley Jackson, you’ll probably love it. If you find them too scary, you’ll probably need to sleep with a light on.

-Does this mean you’ve stopped writing urban fantasy?

Absolutely not. I still have three books left in my Prospero’s War series, and lots of ideas for other stories that fall under the UF umbrella.

I believe it’s important for writers to stretch themselves so their skills don’t grow stale. Plus, the beauty of self-publishing is I can write whatever I want and get it all to the market faster. This allows me to work in several genres at once. If one of my chosen genres doesn’t work for you, that’s okay because there are plenty of other options.
