Hey, friends. When an editor gets excited, I tend to get excited too. Especially when it’s editor Don D’Auria, a man who has edited the likes of Jack Ketchum, Richard Laymon, and Brian Keene.
The book Don’s excited about is my upcoming January release THE NIGHTMARE GIRL. Here’s the creepy Angela Waters cover:
And here’s a very short, very rough, very unofficial synopsis:
When building contractor Joe Crawford confronts a young mother abusing her toddler in a gas station parking lot, he sets in motion a deadly cycle of revenge, supernatural terror, and fanatical cult violence. Soon, Joe must fight to save his wife, his daughter, and the abused little boy from an ancient fire cult in THE NIGHTMARE GIRL.
I’ll be talking more about the story soon, but for now I’ll just say that this one, though horror, is also a suspense/mystery novel. It’s also a tribute of sorts to one of my literary heroes, Mr. Joe R. Lansdale. Oh, and the ending was inspired by Quentin Tarantino. I can’t wait for you to read it.
