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.

Jersey Devil Cover

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?

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 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.

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.

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.

    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.

  2. sjbelz76 says :

    Perhaps “Champ” the lake monster of Lake Champlain. Or the Roanoke Island mystery.

  3. Nina D'Arcangela says :

    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.

      • Nina D'Arcangela says :

        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.
