I may have signed the last book from last fall’s open call, but there’s one more recent signing to announce.
If you haven’t heard of the name Somer Canon yet, that will soon change. Her debut novella VICKI BEAUTIFUL received accolades from fellow rising stars in the genre such as Amber Fallon , Duncan Ralston and John Quick, and her next work, her debut novel KILLER CHRONICLES was snatched up by Thunderstorm Books and immediately sold out.
Now, I’m proud to say that it will be coming out in paperback and Kindle from my little press. Thanks definitely must go to the inimitable Brian Keene who pointed her in my direction, and told me that I would love the story. You can’t get a much better recommendation than that. Two days later, I had received her manuscript and converted it to read on my battered Kindle. Within the first 20 pages, I knew that Brian wasn’t lying. I finished it in a rush, contacted Somer and signed her as fast as my two-fingered hunt-and-peck typing style could manage (which is actually a lot faster than you would imagine.)
Check out the synopsis and original cover from Thunderstorm and join me in welcoming Somer to the Bloodshot crime family.
“True crime blogger, Christina Cunningham, craves legitimacy. She works hard and travels often to make sure her website, Killer Chronicles, has quality content. When she finds herself in her home state of West Virginia writing about two odd and gruesome murders, she thinks it is business as usual.
That is, until she meets the murderer and things take several turns for the weird and worse. Christina’s ambition will battle with her instinct to live as she tries to match wits with the strange and inhuman murderer. Is her life, or the lives of her loved ones worth a good story?”
