Gothic & Horror

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:

HIGH LONESOME SOUND is 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

“Spooky and sweet, dark and warm, and sharp as an animal’s teeth. This is a story that will leave you shivering in the dead of summer.” –Cherie Priest, author of The Family Plot

“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
