It’s Audiobook Month and this is the inside front cover of the June 2015 issue of Publisher’s Weekly.
Three of these are my books! Well, not my books, but I became very close to them during the narration process for Audio Realms. They are the brain children of several of the talented horror writers at Samhain Publishing: Stillwater by Maynard Sims, Doppelgänger by Sean Munger, and Boomtown by Glenn Rolfe. I’ll send out some notes and tweets and spasms as each is released. In the meantime, here are some sneak peek snippets of each:
Stillwater by Maynard Sims, Samhain Publishing, Audio Realms Publishing, Narrated by Lesley Ann Fogle, Audiobook Release Date July 2015
A modern ghost story.
Life was good for Beth, once. Now a car crash has left her confined to a wheelchair. To help her recuperate and rebuild her life, she’s leased Stillwater, a house with a lake in the countryside. But her dreams of peace and quiet are thwarted when she realizes she’s not alone. A girl who once lived at Stillwater—until she drowned in the lake—has never left, and she does not seem pleased by Beth’s presence. Beth sets out to solve the mystery of Stillwater. But can she find a strength she doesn’t know she possesses as she fights the fury of the dead girl, and tries to establish herself as the true mistress and keeper of the Stillwater house and lake?
Doppelgänger by Sean Munger, Samhain Publishing, Audio Realms Publishing, Narrated by Lesley Ann Fogle, Audiobook Release Date July 2015
The house of madness!
Transplanted from her native Sweden to the drawing rooms and gas-lit parlors of Gilded Age New York, Anine Atherton will want for nothing in the lavish row house her rich new husband bought for her. But Anine’s house doesn’t seem to like people. The caretaker hangs himself in the entryway. The maid drops dead her first day on the job. Anine herself is becoming anxious and terrified, and not just because of the ghostly laughter she hears in the middle of the night. Her gentle, charming husband is slowly turning into a domineering brute. And whatever shadowy entity lives in her house, it can read Anine’s mind and use her darkest secrets against her. The last woman to live in the house went insane. Will Anine be next in line?
Boomtown by Glenn Rolfe, Samhain Publishing, Audio Realms Publishing, Narrated by Lesley Ann Fogle, Audiobook Release Date June 2015
Terror from below!
In the summer of 1979, Eckert, Wisconsin, was the sight of the most unique UFO encounter in history. A young couple observed a saucer-like aircraft hovering over Hollers Hill. A blue beam blasted down from the center of the craft into the hill and caused the ground to rumble for miles.
Now, thirty years later, Eckert is experiencing nightly rumbles that stir up wild rumors and garner outside attention. The earthly tremors are being blamed on everything from earthquakes to underground earth dwellers. Two pre-teens discover a pipe out behind Packard’s Flea Market uprooted by the “booms” and come into contact with the powerful ooze bubbling from within. What begins as curiosity will end in an afternoon of unbridled terror for the entire town.
