Today is the official Release Day of my 12th novel of horror and the macabre!
TODAY IS THE RELEASE DAY for my new Flame Tree Press novel, Voodoo Heart. I’m anxious to hear what you think of it! This New Orleans detective / voodoo curse novel has been a long time in coming — I wrote “Vigilantes of Love,” the short story that inspired the novel, 17 years ago!
So far, the reviews have been really good! Booklist, a key review publication from the American Library Association, described it this way: “Ribaud’s quest takes him from French Quarter juju shops to macabre rituals in snake-filled swamps, and Everson exploits his unique setting to the hilt. Like Hjortsberg’s [1978 novel Falling Angel], Voodoo Heart offers a solid blend of supernatural horror and hard-boiled detective fiction, and should appeal to horror devotees as well as mystery buffs.”
The book’s Goodreads page has been showing a lot of 4 and 5-star reviews from reviewers who got it ahead of publication, and you can also see some excerpts on the book’s Reviews page on my website. But to really make this one take off… I need you! Every review helps. Every order pushes it up the rankings so that more readers see it.
Order your copy today on Release Day and help give Voodoo Heart a strong launch!
IF YOU DIDN’T ALREADY pre-order a copy, I hope you’ll order one this week, whether it be an ebook for Kindle or a paperback or hardcover edition! The number of sales that a title gets on its release day and first week are important stats that determine how much stores like Amazon promote the book. So… please, if you enjoy my fiction, pick up your copy today! You can even get it through Target stores!
Here are some of the places where it’s available:
Amazon.com / Barnes & Noble / Books-A-Million / Target / Flame Tree Press / Waterstones / Chapters-Indigo / Simon & Schuster Bookshop
I’m also selling a limited number of autographed copies, through this website… so if you want a signed paperback or hardcover edition, please visit the Voodoo Heart page and I’ll get one signed and out to you!
There’s other stuff I’d love to tell you… it’s been three months since the last newsletter but… I’ll keep this one brief for now. Let’s just say… more to come!
Dark Dreams and Happy Halloween!
