Your Help is Needed

I’m going to take a break from horror books and ghosts today to talk about something far more important. A wonderful family needs our help, and we all have the power to make a big difference in their lives.

In his book, ‘Financial Peace’, author and radio personality Dave Ramsey has this to say about giving money to worthy causes, “Somehow giving reminds us that the world does not revolve around us and that no matter what our financial status is, someone always is in a much worse situation. Good things that cannot be calculated or quantified are set in motion in your life when you give.”

Whether or not you’re a fan of Dave Ramsey, what he says is absolutely true. Author, editor and avid book reviewer Kevin Tipple has helped more authors than I can count over the years, including yours truly over 10 years ago when my first attempt at a small novel came out. He has always been generous of his time and his editing and reviews have helped spark quite a few careers.

Kevin Tipple

Well, Kevin and his family find themselves in a tight spot now. Serious medical problems have led to even more serious medical bills. It’s at the point where doctor bills, medications, rent and food costs are building so fast that it’s almost insurmountable. First and foremost, they need our prayers. Second, and just as important, they need financial help.So, I’m asking you to give what you can to a family in desperate straits. Kevin, his wife and children need the community of man to help them through a period in their lives that is testing their resolve at every turn.Donating is simple. You only need to go to his website and click on the Donate button on the left side bar. Even if it’s 1 dollar, if we all make an effort, we can save them from a nightmare that seems, at this moment, to have no end.

Everyone who donates will receive a signed glossy promo card for Evil Eternal. Just pop back here and let me know you donated along with your address. Or you can email me directly at

And while you’re at Kevin’s site, check out his reviews and tips for writers. There’s something for every book lover there.

Over the past year, I’ve been lucky enough to ‘meet’ a ton of wonderful folks who stop by this old blog and chain. Your words of support and encouragement have meant the world to me. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this and all of  my posts, and a special thank you to any and all that can help Kevin and his family.

Hunter Shea is the product of a childhood weened on The Night Stalker, The Twilight Zone and In Search Of. He doesn’t just write about the paranormal – he actively seeks out the things that scare the hell out of people and experiences them for himself. His novels, Forest of Shadows, Evil Eternal , Swamp Monster Massacre , Sinister Entity, Hell Hole, The Waiting and Island of the Forbidden are published through Samhain Publishing’s horror line. Hell Hole was named Horror Novel Reviews #1 horror novel of 2014. His first thriller novel, The Montauk Monster, was released June, 2014 as a Pinnacle paperback, and was named by Publishers Weekly as one of the best reads of the summer. His follow up Pinnacle novel, Tortures of the Damned, a post apocalyptic thriller, will be out July, 2015. That will be followed up by his latest cryptid tale, The Dover Demon, in the fall through Samhain. His horror short story collection, Asylum Scrawls, is available as an e-book, straightjacket not included. Hunter is an amateur cryptozoologist, having written wild, fictional tales about Bigfoot, The Montauk Monster, The Dover Demon and many new creatures to come. A copy of his book, The Montauk Monster, is currently on display in the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, ME. He wrote his first novel with the express desire to work only with editor Don D’Auria at Dorchester (Leisure Horror). He submitted his novel to Don and only Don, unagented, placed on the slush pile. He is proof that dedicated writers can be rescued from no man’s land. He now works with Don, along with several other agents and publishers, having published over ten books in just four years. Hunter is proud to be be one half of the Monster Men video podcast, along with his partner in crime, Jack Campisi. It is one of the most watched horror video podcasts in the world. Monster Men is a light hearted approach to dark subjects. Hunter and Jack explore real life hauntings, monsters, movies, books and everything under the horror sun. They often interview authors, cryptid and ghost hunters, directors and anyone else living in the horror lane. Living with his wonderful family and two cats, he’s happy to be close enough to New York City to get Gray’s Papaya hotdogs when the craving hits. His daughters have also gotten the horror bug, assisting him with research, story ideas and illustrations that can be seen in magazines such as Dark Dossier.

    Thanks for giving the link to Kevin’s site. I read a few posts and enjoyed the writing. I donated (it’ll show up under my husband’s name, but the “Carmean” part is still the same). I know it’s not much, but I hope it can help some.
