The Montauk Monster 2.0 Virtual Publicity Tour is Set to Party!

Final Montauk Tour GraphicAs if the heat isn’t cranking up hot enough, we’ve put some more wood on the fire to flame The Montauk Monster‘s virtual publicity party! Are you ready to join the party? I could sure use a beer or two to cool me off on this crazy ride of book publishing. So the hottest summer party will be right in my court, peeps. Be sure not to miss any of the action.

Last week we got The Montauk Monster 1.0 tour going with some great authors and friends whose blogs I’ve been visiting this June. You can view that initial list of stops HERE, though I’ll add them all to this list too so you can follow along however you wish. Be sure to take a peek at all their sites and books too. Thanks a bunch to everyone!

Erin Al-Mehairi, my amazing publicist and first reader, good friend, and bundle of laughs, has spent time behind the scenes setting up for me the virtual tour for The Montauk Monster 2.0! Thank you for your rockin’ efforts, Erin! I’m certain if you lived a tad closer we’d be tipping back a few extra.

We are stoked to give you an initial look at all the places you’ll want to be–it’s Monster approved! We’ll update the stops when more roll in, but we’ll update each website with the direct link to the appearance once it posts. Thanks to Kensington/Pinnacle for helping Erin and I to put all the books out to the publicity stops!

And in case you haven’t heard, or picked up your own copy:

montauk monster coverPublisher’s Weekly named the upcoming thriller, THE MONTAUK MONSTER, one of the best summer books of 2014! Not only that, they gave it an awesome review. Here’s a snippet:

The urban mythologies of the Montauk Monster and the government labs on Plum Island unite to cause staggering levels of mayhem when mutant animals with toxic blood descend on a Long Island town. This wholly enthralling hulk of a summer beach read is redolent of sunscreen and nostalgia, recalling mass market horror tales of yore by John Saul, Dean Koontz, and Peter Benchley. — PW

The Montauk Monster, Synopsis and Advanced Praise:

“Shea combines ancient evil, old school horror, and modern style.” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author

It Kills. . .

On a hot summer night in Montauk, the bodies of two local bar patrons are discovered in the dunes, torn to shreds, their identities unrecognizable. . .

It Breeds. . .

In another part of town, a woman’s backyard is invaded by four terrifying creatures that defy any kind of description. What’s clear is that they’re hostile–and they’re ravenous. . .

It Spreads. . .

With every sunset the terror rises again, infecting residents with a virus no one can cure. The CDC can’t help them;FEMA can’t save them. But each savage attack brings Suffolk County Police Officer Gray Dalton one step closer to the shocking source of these unholy creations. Hidden on nearby Plum Island, a U.S. research facility has been running top-secret experiments. What they created was never meant to see the light of day. Now, a vacation paradise is going straight to hell.

“Hunter Shea is the real deal.. . .intense.” –Gord Rollo, author of Valley of the Scarecrow and Crimson

“Shea delves deep into the unknown. A thrill-ride of a read!” –Alexandra Holzer, author of Growing Up Haunted
