Cover Reveal – THE JERSEY DEVIL
Are you all ho-ho-hoed out yet? I know I am. The fat man is back in his icy lair, and things can get back to normal.
Of course, normal for me means being surrounded by all sorts of monsters and beasties and ghosts. With the new year just around the corner, I’m gearing up for my 3 new releases in 2016. I just got the cover to what will be my third Pinnacle novel, THE JERSEY DEVIL, and it’s a doozy. From the Pine Barrens to your eyeballs, with love! The book comes out everywhere on August 30th.
I hope the state of New Jersey lets me in to promote The Jersey Devil next fall. I’d love to find a way to host a special event deep in the Pine Barrens. Luckily, I have 8 months to figure it out.
Hope you all like the cover. More on what’s inside to come. If you loved The Montauk Monster, you’ll really dig The Jersey Devil. No cryptid is safe from me. Any suggestions on which one I should tackle next?

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.
Maybe you can do something at Batsto Mansion in Hammonton, NJ? It’s a wicked cool place and we had to drive through the Pine Barrens to get there.
I actually stopped there one day! Great minds think alike.
Perhaps “Champ” the lake monster of Lake Champlain. Or the Roanoke Island mystery.
I wrote a sea monster book and lake monster story last year, so that might be perfect. I think the Roanoke peeps opened a Subway in Topeka.
The new cover looks gorgeous, Hunter! I’ll be chomping at the bit for this one!!
I think you could do the Mothman some serious justice. Or the hybrid dog/wolf/creatures that are supposedly being bred to patrol our southern border – not sure they even have a name yet… my 2 cents worth. 😉
What do you think, host a reading in the middle of the Pine Barrens? Mothman is so fascinating to me. So much went on with that critter. Crazy stuff.
A reading, yessss! I’ll bring the marshmallows! 😉
Mothman is a great one. A historical event (the collapse of the bridge) mixed with lore from the region before, surrounding, and after it. Lots of good creature fodder there! Twist it around the myth, and it nearly writes itself! Plus, much like the good ‘ole JD, the popularization of it ensures some serious love for the beastie.
