Official launch of The Skull Ring
Thanks for supporting working-class fiction! Here's the latest:
Julia Stone will remember, even if it kills her...
With the help of a therapist, Julia is piecing together childhood memories of the night her father vanished. When Julia finds a silver ring that bears the name "Judas Stone," the past comes creeping back. Someone is leaving strange messages inside her house, even though the door is locked. The Christian handyman offers help, but he has his own shadowy past. And the cop who investigated her father's disappearance has followed her to the small mountain town of Elkwood.
Now she has a head full of memories, but she doesn't know which are real. Julia's therapist is playing games. The handyman is trying to save her, in more ways than one. And a sinister cult is closing in, claiming ownership of Julia's body and soul...
It's an ebook right now at Amazon (http://tiny.cc/O3WNT) and Smashwords (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/9523) and will be in print in a few weeks.
If you'd like to help promote it and be eligible for cool prizes like valuable limited edition hardcovers, sign up to be a Microchip by emailing hauntedcomputerbooks AT yahoo.com with "Microchip" in the subject line. Thanks for all your support--this book has been part of me for a long time, with a number of revisions, and explores a lot of mysteries of faith, love, and messed-up motives. And don't forget the caffeine...
UPDATE: We broke the 1,000-barrier at about 7:30pm EST today, so all you Microchippers are in line for some great prizes like a signed limited edition of Scattered Ashes and of Brimstone Turnpike. Thank you very, very much for your support!
