Are You In My Next Book?
A couple of weeks ago I had a little contest to see who would be a character in the next book I’m writing, which happens to be a sequel to Sinister Entity (which was a sequel to Forest of Shadows). Obviously, the book will be all about ghosts and the paranormal, though I can tell you that things will take a far, far darker turn this time around.
So, I wrote all of the names, put them in a well worn Rockland County Boulders cap and did my drawing of the three. Here are the winners and the names that will populate the book:
- Nina D’Arcangela
- Daphne (love that name!)
- Paul Dail
As to what I’m going to do with those characters, my subconscious is already busy at work. Will they live? Will they die? I have no idea…yet. I plan to start writing the book in October and should finish in February. Congrats to Nina, Daphne and Paul. May God have mercy on your character’s souls.

About Hunter Shea
Hunter Shea is the product of a misspent childhood watching scary movies, reading forbidden books and wishing Bigfoot would walk past his house. 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. Hunter’s novels can even be found on display at the International Cryptozoology Museum. His video podcast, Monster Men, is one of the most watched horror podcasts in the world. You’ll also find him every week on the Final Guys podcast, available everywhere. He’s a bestselling author of over 30 books, all of them written with the express desire to quicken heartbeats and make spines tingle. Living with his wonderful family and two cats, he’s happy to be close enough to New York City to gobble down Gray’s Papaya hotdogs when the craving hits.
Yahoo! Stinkin’ awesome. Can’t wait to find out more. If you need inspiration for my character, I can send pictures of me in various states of facial hair 🙂

Which book is my name in, Hunter?
You’re in the one I’m finishing up. Can’t name it yet. All very hush hush but super cool.
Hot diggidy-dog!!!! (back flips) I’d say I’m tickled pink, but I truly detest the color… please don’t dress me in it 😉
I am genuinely honored to have been chosen out of the Rockland County Boulders cap, and to be a character in your next book. Thank you for immortalizing me, Hunter! 🙂
I will make sure your character is one cool, badass chick, just like the real thing. 🙂
