Thank you for The Forest of Shadows , So Cool !!!!
Thank you Sharon. I’m so glad you liked it. The follow up short story, The Graveyard Speaks, is free at Amazon and Samhain. It leads right into the new book, Sinister Entity. Have fun and there’s no shame in sleeping with the lights on. 😉
Just finished reading The Montauk Monster….I couldn’t put it down!! (literally…I read 95% of the book on a flight from Providence, RI to Seattle, WA) I’m begging you…PLEASE tell me the story doesn’t end there and that you are working on a sequel! Loved it! Thanks!
My editor wanted me to leave the ending so there was room for a sequel. I hope to write it very soon!
I finished reading “The Montauk Monster” about a week ago and I have to tell you that it is possibly one of the best written, most page turning and fun books I have ever read. A blend of horror, sci-fi and action done so well that most other authors, especially main stream authors could only hope to ever write in their career. I had not realized it was something that was real until I write of review of it on Good Reads.
It was the kind of book that you don’t really want to end. I didn’t want to believe that Meredith and Dalton would have gotten swept up into the “clean-up” that the government was doing. It felt like it was open to interpretation and that the two of them would end up coming back, with possibly Dalton working for another small town police force, only to be swept up into it all over again.
Anyways I just had to tell you all this. I have been telling all my friends in the horror community about it and well, I just cant say enough about it. I hope the sequel becomes a reality. So I just have to say Thank you for giving me one of the most horrifying and entertaining books I’ve read in a very, very long time.
Wow. Thank you so much. That really means a lot. My next book with Pinnacle, called Tortures of the Damned, comes out in July. You liked Montauk Monster, so I know you’ll have a ball with that one. 🙂
I cant wait for it Hunter. I don’t read anything except comics, which I noted that you name drop a lot comic and media related things, so I hope that the upcoming books will be in paperback form. So unfortunately, your swamp monster massacre I wont be able to read. But Im totally stoked on your new things coming out. And I know I’ll have a ball with them.
Love all the DC comics stuff mostly, what if any are you into? And what do you think of the way the movies are written and made?
Thanks for the reply. I very much appreciate it.
Oh and I live in Rhode Island, so I live close enough to Montauk to have a continuation of that story happen here, hehehe
I just finished Forest of Shadows a couple of days ago, but I wish I hadn’t. I had trouble putting it down, but I didn’t want it to end! And that ending–I had tears in my eyes! What a great ending!
This is the first book of yours I’ve read. It won’t be the last and I’m really glad to see there are more with Jessica Backman.
Thank you so much, Laurel. And I do plan to write more. 🙂
Just finished Island of the Dammed. Starting Swamp Monster Massacre. Love yor books hard to stop reading.
Thank you so much, Emily. Old Swampy is a wild little ride. 🙂
hi hunter i,ve read montauk monster and i want to get all your books as soon as i can great writing ty
Thank you! I’ll keep writing if you keep reading.
Just finished reading Tortures of the Damned. I’ve enjoyed it so much I’m hunting down the rest of your novels.
I’m curious. Is there a sequel planned? I
Thanks Christine. I am mulling over a special project that would take place minutes after the end of the book, so stay tuned.
Just finished Tortures of the Damned. The end bothered me. Not that I didn’t like it, it haunted me. I got so close to the characters that I was shocked, even saddened that the kids where supposedly left alone at the end; or where the kids killed by the explosion too? …and when Rey and Dakota died. The writing was so that I could feel the family’s grief. Glad to hear there might be a sequel. Looks like Montauk Monster is next, but not sure which one yet.
Thank you, Charles. That was a tough one for me to write, and I struggled with the ending. As I said earlier, though, I am thinking of ways to extend the story.
dude them people at best sellers list wont listen to me u deserve to be on ny best sellers list ,most books bore me after first couple pages,,and lol writers hate me I tell em the truth about there books ,dude u better than king ,only one bad thing to say,,,,,dude write faster lol,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Just finished reading Tortures of The Damned. So good. Is there going to be a sequel?
Thank you so much for reaching out to me (and reading the book!). There aren’t any plans for a sequel right now, but with all the requests I’ve been getting, the wheels are starting to turn. Stay tuned! Sign up for my newsletter to get the news first if I do decide to continue the story.
Please write a sequel to Tortures of the Damned. I couldn’t put the book down. I loved it. I absolutely need to find out what happens with the kids.
So glad you liked the book, Joann. A lot of people have asked for more. I’m thinking now of how I’ll go about it. Stay tuned.
Hunter never ever ever disappoints. Mr. Shea brings the genre home with hit after hit. His writing is akin to so many of the greats and I am so happy his books are starting to meat the market. I can’t wait for my next. Congrats Hunter
and keep ’em coming.
Thank you so much! You rock. I promise, there’s a WHOLE lot more to come. 🙂
Have recently discovered your books and I am enjoying them thoroughly. My wife and I love to go on “monster trips” around the U.S. looking in the towns that have local monster stories and talking with the people. The ones I am really excited for are Dover Demon and Swamp Monster Massacre. Any idea when they will be available again?
I love that you guys take monster trips! Swamp Monster just came back in print with Severed Press. The ebook is out and print should be any day now. Dover Demon will probably be out by the fall. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
Thanks, I’ll look for them. So much better seeing the small town monsters than any of the “national” monuments. Managed to check off Van Meter monster, Ohio Grassman, Mothman, Lizardman, Skunk Ape and Boggy Creek monster…. Now we have to head across the northern states!
I had never heard of you before, but was browsing the horroe section of my local bookstore and stumbled upon your section & one of my new favorite writers. I bought Loch Ness Revenge and will DEF be buying more of your books in the future. I love your style of writing and I love your concepts. So grateful to have discovered you & will be recommending you to all my friends.
Thank you so much for the kind words! People like you keep me going!
Hey Hunter, I love your books! I have read all the novels I can find. I enjoyed them all, and I really liked the three books in the Jessica Backman series. Are you planning any additions to that line?
Thanks Jan. Yes, I do plan to write more in the series next year!
Hi Mr. Hunter!
I’ve binged on every title of yours that Amazon will sell me. As a huge fan of cryptids, the first one I read was “Loch Ness Revenge”. Killer book. Wicked fast paced and amusing and the twins are awesome. The follow up book was a nail biter and totally left me wanting more in the series. Montauk was a favorite that also begs for a sequel. The first Jessica Backman book actually scared me, and I’m a seasoned horror buff. I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for her, that book stayed with me for days creeping me out.
Thank you so much. Jessica’s second book, Sinister Entity, should be back out soon!
When is manratten coming out in paperback tyvm.
If it does come out in paperback. it would most likely be in 2023.
Hi, I’m a seasoned horror reader and I was after Bigfoot books and creature was recommended to me (as were 8 others), yours was by far the best! I have since read 3 more of yours and ordered another 5.
I was wondering if you were allowed to share what future crypid you are planning to write about.
Also, is slash a sequel to an earlier book?
Keep up the great work
Thank you so much for reading my madness! I have a new book coming out with Severed Press soon, but it’s more of a giant version of a common creature. Not sure which cryptid to tackle next. I’m hoping to get my Clash of the Cryptids book out this year, which features dozens of cryptids. Slash is a standalone, but made to read like a sequel. 🙂
Look forward to those.
I have just ordered 12 more of your books (some seem hard to find in the UK) , so that’s my April sorted.
Good luck with the new ones, I will be keeping a look out for them all
