One week from today, on February 3, 2015, my new book Doppelgänger comes out from Samhain Horror. I’m really proud of this book and even before its release it’s been getting some excellent reviews, so I’m very excited about the buzz building for it, and I hope you are too! You can preorder the book (either paperback or in e-book version) here, or directly on Amazon here (Kindle version). If you’re going to read the book, I really encourage you to preorder–the more preorders, the higher in the rankings it will debut on Amazon next week.
Here is the synopsis of the book:
Transplanted from her native Sweden to the drawing rooms and gas-lit parlors of Gilded Age New York, Anine Atherton will want for nothing in the lavish row house her rich new husband bought for her. But Anine’s house doesn’t seem to like people. The caretaker hangs himself in the entryway. The maid drops dead her first day on the job. Anine herself is becoming anxious and terrified, and not just because of the ghostly laughter she hears in the middle of the night. Her gentle, charming husband is slowly turning into a domineering brute. And whatever shadowy entity lives in her house, it can read Anine’s mind and use her darkest secrets against her. The last woman to live in the house went insane. Will Anine be next in line?
I’m also very happy to report that Doppelgänger has received a four-star review from Examiner.com. The review is here. Minneapolis book reviewer Josef Hernandez had these great things to say about it:
“Doppelganger” hooked me from the very beginning and did not let me go until the final sentence…“Doppleganger” pushed the envelope of what a ghost story is and comes up with a unique story that is both entertaining and terrifying. Highly recommended with the warning that this novel may cause insomnia and night terrors.
This is my third book from Samhain Horror, and quite a departure from my previous zombie books. If you love spooky stories and a historical twist on horror, Doppelgänger is definitely for you. I can’t wait to see it on bookstore shelves beginning next week!
