Big News and a Weekend Giveaway
The month of May has been flat-out crazy. And I mean crazy in a good way. I’ll start off with the great news. I signed a deal with Samhain for the sequel, yes, I said sequel, to Forest of Shadows. The next book is called Sinister Entity and takes several characters from the first book, over a decade later. Who made the cut to book two? You’ll have to wait until April, 2013 to find out. Until then, I can show you the amazing cover that just got into my hot little hands 2 days ago.
This wait is going to kill me!
As you all know, my second book with Samhain, Evil Eternal, was released at the beginning of the month. The promotional wheels have been spinning and I’m gearing up for the big Books Without Borders fair on June 9th. Word is there will be thousands of folks attending. I’m just offering up a few prayers to the sun god to keep it bright and dry.
I saw the first official review for Evil Eternal this week and it was a doozy. It’s from the folks at Ginger Nuts of Horror. Here’s just the beginning:
“Some horror books are excellent because they delve into the deepest parts of our psyche, and try and shed light on what makes us us. Some are excellent because the author has an amazing talent for writing wonderful prose, and some books are just excellent, because they entertain the reader with a blockbusting balls to the walls story.
I’m happy to say that Evil Eternal is one of the most refreshing entries in the balls to the wall type of horror novel that I grew up reading, in many a long year.”

I fininshed the first draft of an all new novella that will hopefully be out in the Fall this year. First revision starts right after I post this.
And now on to the fun part. I’m giving away signed prints of the cover for Evil Eternal to anyone who comments on this post. If you were a fan of Forest of Shadows, let me know what you think of the cover for Sinister Entity and take a guess at who the star of the show will be. If you read Evil Eternal, let me know what you think of it. Hell, just come by and say ‘what up’! I’ll start sending out the signed covers this coming week.
Well, I don’t want a free copy obviously (as I won Forest of Shadows) but so good to hear you’re going to have yet another book out.
Thanks Cate. I have a lot of irons in the fire and some really fun stuff planned. 🙂
Love the eyes , the evil is looking right at u
Love the eyes, the evil is looking right at u
The artist nailed it. I was psyched when I saw it.
Bravo! That cover definitely has me intrigued. I like how the face seems to transition from a face to a skull before fading into the mist. Also, Evil Eternal is kicking many forms of ass. I’m about 60% done and I hope to finish it this weekend. Great work!
Thanks Steve. So glad you’re digging Evil Eternal. I loved finding different ways to describe horrible acts. LOL
Great looking cover art Hunter, and congrats on the sequel deal for Forest of Shadows! Evil Eternal seems to be making quite a splash! Congrats again ;}
I’m so happy for you Hunter!! Well deserved!!!
What an awesome cover Hunter! I can’t wait for the sequel to Forest! and I don’t know how I missed your latest book Evil Eternal. I must go check this out!
Thank you so much Sherry! If you go to Samhain directly, I think it’s still 30% off.
Yup, I’d pick it up very happily if I saw it on a shelf. Is the artist the same for Eveil Eternal and Sinister Entity? Congratulations, Hunter. Yu deserve it 🙂
Yep, same artist. I may adopt him. LOL
Wow, you’ve been VERY busy! Loving the cover! Definitely sinister and mysterious!
I want a signed copy of the cover of Evil Eternal!!!! Please! I will beg however many times I need to. 🙂 I’m reading it! It must have been a day for cover releases and I posted Jonathan’s on my blog. I have another post today, but tomorrow I will post your cover release, how’s that? I am so excited for you!
You got it!!! Happy to do it. When you get a chance, can you send me your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org?
Thank you so much! You really are a rock star!
Wow, man, that is a seriously spooky cover! Congratulations! 🙂
Thanks dude. I’m equally stoked about your new cover. They’re doing some great work over there at Samhain.
I love the cover but I don’t like waiting until next year. 😦
Congratulations on the new signing, too.
I’m not too crazy about the wait either. 😉 Thank you!
Thank you so much!
It appears to me that this web site doesnt load up on a Motorola Droid. Are other people getting the exact same issue? I like this site and dont want to have to skip it when Im away from my computer.
I wish I could answer that. Best thing to do is contact Word Press customer service.
