Okay, folks. Barnes and Noble has already begun shipping the paperbacks. DUST DEVILS arrived at a slew of readers’ houses yesterday, and I suspect Amazon will soon be sending out these bad boys too:
The ebook version launches on February 4th, and if you pre-order at the Samhain Horror website, you can snatch it up for only $3.85 (the paperback, which looks even more gorgeous in person, is a mere $11.20).
I know every writer gets excited about a new release, but this one really is special. This is the first time I’ve written a novel in which there is left absolutely no chance for a sequel. The heroes must live or die in this book, and the villains must kill or be killed. And I like that.
Aside from being completely self-contained, this is my first western and my first emphatic word on vampires. This is a topic I’ll cover in further detail later, but for now I’ll just say that vampires remain a largely untapped area in horror fiction.
Yes, I really said that.
Why do they have to be attractive OR ferocious OR intelligent OR seductive OR depraved OR vindictive OR (insert adjective here)? Why can’t they be all those things and more?
If you’re not convinced yet, check out the first two reviews of DUST DEVILS here and here.
I think you’re really gonna like this one, friends.

I can’t wait to read this one. I love vampires. Let me clarify. I love real vampires. Salem’s Lot, The Night Stalker, Christopher Lee, Fright Night, etc. Evil, scary vampires.
Unsurprisingly, Jack, you and I thrust our wooden stakes in the same heaving torsos. Vampires can be sexy, sure. But can’t they be bestial too? I mean, what’s the point of a vampire if it’s only going to bemoan his fate and make doe eyes at young women? Give me the monstrous side too! 🙂
David Searls did a good job of telling real vampire horror. Now, we’ll test you out….bahahaha…or sink our teeth into it. 🙂 Best of luck with this one.
David is an outstanding writer. I hope I do the sub-genre justice. 😉
Cueing up the The Lost Boys theme song…and hoping my ordered copy arrives by week’s end!
What a fun movie. I’ve gotta go look up that song…
Yay! I’ll be waiting on the ebook, but it’s hard 🙂 Congratulations.
Thank you, Renae! I appreciate it! 🙂
