1) NEW TWIST ON WESTERN REVENGE TALE: Set on the iconic American frontier on the eve of the Civil War, Devil’s Call is an invigorating twist on the Western revenge tale that skillfully weaves in elements of horror, the occult, and historical fantasy.
2) EARLY FILM DEAL SURFACING: The unfinished manuscript created a firestorm of interest from A-list producers in Hollywood and is now being packaged by United Talent for TV.
3) "THE REVENANT" WITH FEMALE LEAD: Refreshes the “western revenge” trope with a multi-ethnic female lead and has been called by producers a “female Revenant.” This genre is making a huge comeback with the successes of The Revenant, The Magnificent Seven, and Westworld.
4) AUTHOR DESCRIBED AS A "YOUNG, FEMALE ELMORE LEONARD": Off of the strength of the manuscript, she is now represented by the same agents who represent the estate of Elmore Leonard.

"Something has been let loose..."
In Edwardian Suffolk, a manor house stands alone in a lost corner of the Fens: a glinting wilderness of water whose whispering reeds guard ancient secrets. Maud is a lonely child growing up without a mother, ruled by her repressive father.
When he finds a painted medieval devil in a graveyard, unhallowed forces are awakened.
Maud's battle has begun. She must survive a world haunted by witchcraft, the age-old legends of her beloved fen – and the even more nightmarish demons of her father's past.

It is a masterwork in the modern gothic tradition that ranges from Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker to Neil Gaiman and Sarah Perry.
'Do monsters always stay in the book where they were born? Are they content to live out their lives on paper, and never step foot into the real world?'
The Villa Diodati, on the shore of Lake Geneva, 1816: the Year without Summer. As Byron, Polidori, and Mr and Mrs Shelley shelter from the unexpected weather, old ghost stories are read and new ghost stories imagined. Born by the twin brains of the Shelleys is Frankenstein, one of the most influential tales of horror of all time.
In a remote mountain house, high in the French Alps, an author broods on Shelley's creation. Reality and perception merge, fuelled by poisoned thoughts. Humankind makes monsters; but who really creates who? This is a book about reason, the imagination, and the creative act of reading and writing. Marcus Sedgwick's ghostly, menacing novel celebrates the legacy of Mary Shelley's literary debut in its bicentenary year.
An ancient, powerful, and vengeful spirit attempts to reenter the world through the body of a terrified young woman in this horror classic. Phony psychic and conman Harry Erskine never really believed in the occult until Karen Tandy approached him with a rapidly growing tumor on her neck, complaining of dark and disturbing dreams. When the mass is revealed by doctors to contain something living, the stakes skyrocket—not only for Karen and Harry but for all humanity. Something terrible is returning from the shadows to which it has been confined for centuries—a Native American monstrosity determined to destroy every vestige of the white race that oppressed and preyed upon America’s Indians. And unless a motley group of ill-prepared defenders can harness an ancient native magic, there will be no stopping the malevolent shaman’s terrible rebirth—and no escaping the wholesale carnage it will engender. The Manitou introduced the great Graham Masterton to the canon of horror, instantly placing him among the genre’s elite. A longtime favorite for its bold originality, unrelenting creepiness, supernatural shocks, and otherworldly surprises that would have made H. P. Lovecraft proud, Masterton’s classic continues to stand tall alongside Stephen King’s Carrie, Peter Straub’s Ghost Story, and other unforgettable literary horror debuts.
Decisions have consequences.
The killer did not intend to place his family in danger. The leader did not realize her responsibility to protect was greater than her desire to rule. The will to live has brought the need to kill, and trust has turned into betrayal. To build a better tomorrow, they must first embrace what they have allowed themselves to become. They must rise.
A man whose own decisions have cost him dearly has awoken. Darkness has revealed his true power—and he is growing stronger. Driven to destroy all who stand in his way, he will stop at nothing to regain all that he has lost.
And he must be stopped.
