The Jersey Devil Gets The Publishers Weekly Seal of Approval

As my British friends would say, I’m always gobsmacked when I see a review of one of my books in Publishers Weekly. I mean, isn’t that the magazine that reviews real books? Not books about monsters, unless Stephen King wrote it. (and on a side note, who else is dying for King to tackle a new monster?)

My first Pinnacle book, The Montauk Monster, was called one of the best reads of the summer by PW back in 2014. Well, it’s two years and another cryptid/monster book later. Here’s what they had to say about THE JERSEY DEVIL

Shea  delivers a tense and intriguing work of escalating tension splattered with a clever, extensive cast of bystanders turned victims.

Fans will appreciate the call-outs to his other work, and fans of cryptid creatures are likely to revel in this love letter to a legendary menace.

I looked over on GoodReads, where all us rabid readers loiter about, and it’s getting lots of love from the folks who have gotten an early preview of the book.

The Jersey Devil officially comes out on August 30th. If you’d like me to appear for a signing near you, contact me at huntershea1@gmail.com or via comment here and I’ll see what I can do.

And just for gits and shiggles, I’ll give away a signed copy of The Montauk Monster to a random responder to this post.

Enjoy the summer while it lasts. Because darkness is coming, and there be monsters lurking within…

    CONGRATS! And well-deserved it is. I’m sorry I’ve not gotten to post my review of it for you yet. Things have just been so busy and stressful with wedding plans and I want to give the book justice, not just some hurried, half-out-of-my-mind flyby scribblings. I’ll try to sit down tonight and at least get something started! Again, CONGRATULATIONS on the PW review and may you receive many more like it in the future.

    I’m so excited to see another great “monster” writer gain recognition in the eyes of those lofty critics. Those of us with good taste have known about the great Monster Men all along. Keep writing and we’ll keep reading.
