This week, the limited edition hard cover of my newest novel, The Blue People, will go on sale. If you like large scary monsters and alternate dimensions as much as you like police procedurals and cult goings-on, then you’ll want to pick up a copy of this book.
From the acclaimed author of cosmic horror, Mary SanGiovanni, comes a new supernatural thriller which will make your blood run cold….
The worst snow storm of the year has just hit Colby, Connecticut. But this is no ordinary storm. For one thing, it’s almost June, and there is no sign of it letting up anytime soon. Schools and businesses have closed, power has gone out in some places, cell phone reception is limited and Internet access is down.
There is also a number of dead bodies accumulating with the snow, and countless other townsfolk have gone missing. There are killers out there in the dark and cold of Colby. The human ones are intent on ushering in an evil the likes of which this world has never seen. But the ones that are not human have far worse plans in store.
Cut off from the rest of the world, Jack Glazer and Kathy Ryan are heading a task force to investigate and put a stop to the killings in Colby. They are trapped with the cultists who have brought the storm to town through occult means, and they are running out of time and resources to survive. As the number of innocent townsfolk diminishes, the strength and amount of snow seems to increase, and terrible things are howling and swirling through those growing drifts, intent on spilling blood. Though Jack and Kathy fear their team may be hopelessly underprepared for a fight to save the world, they are determined to stop the murder cult at the heart of the storm before everything and everyone they love is buried under in an arctic hell forever.
Also, don’t forget about that thing you’re doing this Saturday. No, not that thing. I mean the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival. I’ll be there signing books from 1-4:30 pm and then on a panel. There will be a whole slew of amazing authors there, also signing books and doing panels and other bookish things. If you’re in the area, then definitely come by and say hi!
UPDATE: A note on the MVHBF – This is shaping up to be a popular and well-attended event. To be guaranteed admission, grab yourself a free ticket and get there by 1 pm. Tickets can still be acquired free by clicking on http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2259519. If you are unable to get a ticket or if you arrive after 1pm, admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. We have every reason to believe that everyone will get inside, but once the venue has reached its legally mandated capacity, new arrivals will only be allowed in once other attendees have left the building. We do expect turnover over the course of the day.
*If you have a ticket or tickets but find you will not be able to attend, please contact Chris Golden directly. firstname.lastname@example.org
*There are no concessions at the venue, though our program will have a coupon for a restaurant across the street and there are others nearby.
*Also, ACT Theater is in a converted industrial space at Osgood Landing in North Andover. When you arrive, stay to the right of the main building and proceed to the back of the industrial park. ACT is in one of the two smaller buildings at the rear of the lot on that side. You may think you’ve come to the wrong place, but trust us, we’ll be there.
