Another Cover Reveal – THOSE WHO FOLLOW


If you love the horror genre and you haven’t been living under a rock, you should be fully aware of the writing duo Melissa Lason and Michelle Garza, better known in some circles as the Sisters of Slaughter.Those Who Follow - Kindle Cover

Their first novel MAYAN BLUE is one of the five Bram Stoker Awards nominees this year in the category of Superior Achievement in a First Novel (along with another Bloodshot Books author Tom Deady, I might add). When they submitted their novel THOSE WHO FOLLOW to me last summer, I knew it was going to be special …and after that was confirmed, I knew exactly who I wanted to design their cover – Michael Bukowski. I discovered Mike’s work when I saw the illustration for Orrin Grey‘s story “The Cult of the Headless Men, and when I suggested he do their cover, the Sisters (as they are wont to do) bombarded me with a flurry of manic gifs and emoticons expressing their glee.

It was a match made in… Xibalba

I think I’ve rambled enough. Check out this bad boy

Roadie Notes

I’m going to start this interview off a little differently by using an excerpt from his new book. Please welcome R. Patrick Gates to Roadie Notes…..

One fine day in the middle of the night,

Two dead boys got up to fight.

Back to back they faced each other,

Drew their swords and shot each other.

A deaf policeman heard the noise,

And came and killed the two dead boys.…

The empty airwaves of the mind…
