A New Book and a Chance to Be Killed

So my new book, Chaos, is now available from Thunderstorm Books, and I am delighted:

From the author of the Hollower Trilogy and Thrall comes a terrifying new novel of madness and horror….

The Bridgewood Estates apartments are clean, modern and new—the perfect place for Myrinda and her boyfriend Derek to start a new life together. But the apartments have an extra feature not advertised—they’re built on a gateway to another world, an abyss of chaos from which horrific monsters known as the chaotic ones have come to spread their insanity sickness. As the tenants of Bridgewood descend into lunacy, unthinkable acts and violent deaths accumulate around Myrinda and Derek. They’ll have to fight Myrinda’s own growing madness or succumb to the whims of the chaotic ones.

This book is rather special to me as it marks a certain milestone, I think, in my writing. I understand from Paul that the bulk of the copies have sold already, but there are still several copies available for purchase.

In honor of the release of Chaos, I’m holding a drawing to have five of you killed. In loving, carefully-crafted prose, of course. Everyone who has bought or buys a copy of Chaos at any point during today through the end of Friday, August 30th, will be entered into a drawing to have his or her name used as a victim character in my next Thunderstorm book. Five winners will be chosen at random from the list of purchasers.

If you would like to enter for a chance to win your name immortalized as a victim of some nasty other dimensional monster, click here and pick up one of the last few copies left!

As always, thanks to all who picked up a copy. I sincerely hope you enjoy this one.

New Fiction and New Appearances

I’ve been told that in about a week, the link will go live for ordering the LE HC of my new novel, Chaos.  A little about the book:

Chaos - FRONT COVER From the author of the Hollower Trilogy and Thrall comes a terrifying new novel of madness and horror….

Also, I have just received word that my 10k novelette, “Okiku,” will be appearing alongside some very awesome writers in an upcoming anthology.  I’ll be posting details about that as soon as I’m allowed to and I know more about ordering and such.

And speaking of 10k stories, I will have copies of “The Anathema Cell” chapbooks, as well as some copies of my other novels, for sale and signing at this Saturday’s upcoming charity event, Creator Cookout, hosted by Comix Connection in Mechanicsburg, PA.  During this event, comic book creators and novelists talk, sign, and cook for fans while taking donations for the Central PA Food Bank. Please join Brian Keene, Mike Hawthorne, J.F. Gonzalez, Andrew Griffith, Dirk Shearer, Jess Eppley, Brandon Perlow, Karl Bollers, possibly Rick Leonardi, and me on Saturday, August 24th at Comix Connection 6200 Carlisle Pike, Suite C, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050. Bring a donation of canned food for the Central PA food bank, and you’ll be entered into a prize drawing (one entry per each food item donated).

What’s Available and What’s Coming Soon

For those in need of a handy reference or curious about trying my work out, books of mine currently available (in varying quantities) are as follows:


Thrall
is currently available for Kindle for only $4.99.  In about two months, the audio book will be available as well for $19.77, although I understand you can pre-order it through the imbedded link.  Although there are no solid plans at present for a paperback version of this book, I’m looking into options.


For Emmy
is currently available for Kindle.  Hard cover versions are sold out, but for those attending Mo*Con in two weeks, Necon in July, or Killercon in September, I’ll have paperback copies on hand to sign and sell.  Copies are limited.

 

My first two books, The Hollower and Found You, are available in limited edition, signed hard covers. There are very few of these left, but I understand a few copies do still remain.  These are part of a set which will include The Triumvirate.  There should be news sometime later this year regarding an audio book version of The Hollower.


The Triumvirate
will be available in June as the last installment of the Hollower Trilogy.  For those who already have the first two books and just want to read this new one, The Triumvirate will also be available as part of Thunderstorm Books’ Hard Rain Series.

FOUND YOU Available NOW From Thunderstorm Books!

The Hollower Trilogy continues!
The beautifully re-released signed hard cover of the trilogy’s second book, Found You, is in stock and now available through Thunderstorm Books’ Supercell Series. This edition is limited to 85 copies. Since these books were designed to be a complete set with cover art that creates one large, gorgeous piece of art, in purchasing this, you’re automatically reserved to purchase the new, never-before-published third book, The Triumvirate, in July, so you’re guaranteed a complete set! (Those who wish to purchase only The Triumvirate can do so as part of the Hard Rain series.)  If you purchased a copy of The Hollower already, please indicate the number on the book you received so that Thunderstorm can send you matching numbers.

If you liked the original Hollower series or if you’re interested in trying it for the first time, now is the time to get these books.  I understand there are only a dozen or so copies left of The Hollower, and they are expected to see fast.  They are the author’s preferred text versions, with incredible cover art by David Ho, and newly included author’s notes about each book.

THRALL Now Available on Kindle!

For those who missed the hardcover version of Thrall, the e-book version for Kindle is now available on Amazon for only $4.99.

F. Paul wilson says of Thrall: “Thrall is a feast of both visceral and existential horror – the gut tightens and the mind reels. Mary SanGiovanni joins that select cadre of women writers who are ignoring the safe old tropes and pushing the genre in new directions.”

THRALL Available for Pre-order

THRALL
Reservations are now being taken for my new novel, THRALL, through Thunderstorm Books. The book is a signed, limited-edition hardcover featuring the novel as well as two bonus stories, “Kins” and “The Days After the World Went Away.”

The last thing JESSE COAGLAN ever wanted to do was return to his hometown of Thrall, New Jersey. Tucked away in the wilds of the northwestern corner of the state, Thrall has always been a very strange place to live. The town was a poison that affected people’s minds, their souls, their bodies, and their perspectives. So Jesse abandoned his friends and the one woman he loved, and left everything behind. Seven years later, Jesse has found a reason to return – a reason that, in spite of his best attempts otherwise, he can’t ignore. His old love, Mia Dalianis, has left him a voicemail message begging him to come back, if not for her, then for the daughter Jesse never knew he had. Jesse needs to go back. He’s been running for a long time – from relationships, friendships, everything he is afraid of and feels guilty over. He realizes that the nightmares will never stop until he goes to Thrall. With help from Nadia Richards and some old surviving friends from Thrall, Jesse intends to find his daughter or die trying. He goes looking for redemption, but what he discovers about his old hometown may destroy him and everyone he’s ever cared about.

F. Paul Wilson says of the book: “THRALL is a feast of both visceral and existential horror—the gut tightens and the mind reels. Mary SanGiovanni joins that select cadre of women writers who are ignoring the safe old tropes and pushing the genre in new directions.”
