tHE COMING OF DARK.
On the 18th and 19th of July my ebook “The coming of dark” will be free on Amazon.
Of the books I currently have out this is my most popular. It is not because it is a perfect book. It does have its’ flaws as I’ve book told, but the majority of people like it. Some actually love it. I think it is because it is fast paced with a mystery that is quite unusual.
The central character is Detective Troy Dance. Detective Dance is left paralyzed after a shootout. But don’t confuse this book with a heartwarming drama about a man that rises above his handicap. One reviewer did and was disappointed when the story began to turn a little gruesome. This story is a supernatural thriller and may even be considered horror. I don’t want anyone going into this book thinking it is something that it isn’t.
This book could also be considered a psychological thriller. This is related to Troy’s sudden handicap and how he deals with it. I could say more, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone deciding to download the free book.
I originally wrote this as a short story, but I kept thinking of new things to put into it and had to eventually make it into a novel.
A couple of reviewers have called this book a Stephen King knockoff, though not in those exact words. It was meant as ridicule, but I kind of like it. Not that I have set out to emulate Stephen King. I would like to be known for my own work. If I am to be accused of copying anyone, however, it’s best that I’m accused of copying someone at the top of the industry instead of someone like Bud the unknown guy.
My last two giveaways for this book has been in thousands of downloads. During this time I have spent no money on advertising only posting on free sites. This giveaway here, however, I have spent some money to be featured on a couple of sites plus twitter posts. I’m anxious to see how much of a difference this paid advertising makes. In any event if you like the supernatural (especially a lot of action and a twisted ending) I think you’ll like this one.
When I write a blog, I try to keep it relevant. Often it will be about writing and books. I also review books that I read.
