Synopsis: 

Separated by distance and ideology, Aeson and R’lyeh still share one com-mon goal: to save Vrana from the Void.
But the world has changed.

King Edgar’s new religion, the Disciples of the Deep, has spread through-out the continent, converting people into the living embodiments of its twisted beliefs.

While the Holy Order of Penance has forsaken its self-induced isolation, and with an army of thousands, moves to reclaim their flock and make per-manent their presence on the mainland.

But with every conflict, there are more terrible things hidden within the car-nage.

The rumblings beneath the Ossuary’s sands. The monstrous multitudes pouring out of the Nameless Forest. The vermillion veins lifting out of the land, as if by some unseen puppeteer’s hand. Corrupted and Night Terrors who bleed blue light from their eyes while working collectively towards an unknown goal.

Even worse are the secret songs rising up out of the Earth’s bloodied bow-ers, from the growing Choir and its two cruel conductors.

To rescue Vrana, Aeson and R’lyeh will have to sacrifice everything they were and intended to become. They will have to flay themselves time and time again on the terrors between them, until nothing remains, because in the end:
“Flesh… makes fiends of us all.”

Important Updates!

Hello Everyone!

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve used this website, or really done any marketing whatsoever. That’s my fault. I’ve been so consumed with publishing The Blood of Before and finishing The Cults of the Worm that, unfortunately, I’ve neglected my marketing duties.

But no longer!

Firstly, on the books:

THE BLOOD OF BEFORE, book .1 in The Bones of the Earth series, is now available to purchase from your favorite online retailer.

THE CULTS OF THE WORM, book 3 in The Bones of the Earth series, is now finished and in its first draft. I will be sending it off to beta readers soon, and then to the editor. I aim to have Book 3 released this fall.

As for the marketing:

I am going to take the next month off from writing to focus solely on marketing. I finally feel that I have a large enough body of work to instill confidence in newer readers. Here are my goals for the month:

  • Update website with new designs, content, and blog entries.
  • Finish and post my Kickstarter page.
  • Look into the possibility of setting up a Patreon.
  • Look into more paid advertising.
  • Make connections with bloggers for guest spots, reviews, etc.
  • More giveaways.
  • Visit local bookstores and see about having them stock my book.
  • Work with Hannah in creating an online store for Bones of the Earth memorabilia.
  • Do more live, as well as pre-recorded readings, to post on Facebook and Youtube.

Those are the goals. I think they’ll keep me busy well into the next month. As for the book release schedule, it is the following:

Book 3: The Cults of the Worm.

Book .2: The Agony of After (second anthology).

Book 4: Untitled final book in this Bones of the Earth series.

Standalone Horror Novels #1 and #2.

Sci-fi/horror series.

Hope to have some new content for everyone in the next few days!

Thanks, everyone, for your continued support.

Scott

“The Three Heretics” is Now Available for Purchase

front-cover

Goodreads

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

I quietly published The Three Heretics last week, but I held off from making an announcement because I wanted to wait for the book to populate to all the major online retailers. Everything looks good now, so…

I am happy to announce that The Three Heretics is now available for purchase in paperback or eBook from most major online retailers!! And what better a time than on the best holiday of the year?

It took a little longer than I anticipated to get it out, but hey, that’s just how this game goes sometimes.

If you get a chance to read the book, I’d love to hear what you think! Your feedback is crucial in making sure the next book in the series is even better than the last. You can contact me at my website, Goodreads, or Facebook. Also, feel free to follow me on Twitter and Instagram.

Also, The Bones of the Earth should be available as an eBook in most online retailers now. It was locked to Amazon for awhile because of their KDP program, but I’ve decided to take it out of that.

(Not sure why the books aren’t available in iTunes yet, but maybe that’s because iTunes blows big ones.)

Stay tuned for another really big announcement in the next few days. What we’re working on is almost finished; just need to put the finishing touches on it.

As for a status update, The Cult of the Worm, Book Three in the series, is 41k words in. The Blood of Before, the horror anthology takes place before Bones, is finished and currently being torn apart by my lovely beta readers. I expect to have it sent off to the editor in the next month.

That’s it for now! I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks about this next entry into the Bones series.

Here is the full cover by Hannah Graff. Amazing, as always.
