    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.

    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.

    The new novel everyone's been waiting for from bestselling author Michelle Paver. 
     
    "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. 
     
    Spanning five centuries, Wakenhyrst is a darkly gothic thriller about murderous obsession and one girl's longing to fly free by the bestselling author of Dark Matter and Thin Air. Wakenhyrst is an outstanding new piece of story-telling, a tale of mystery and imagination laced with terror. It is a masterwork in the modern gothic tradition that ranges from Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker to Neil Gaiman and Sarah Perry.

    Spring break will never be the same after a legendary creature rises from the depths. 
    "This book flew by while I was reading because of its intense page-turning quality... The monsters, myths and historical aspects which Miriam uncovers are the hallmarks of any great seafaring adventure, adding lots of atmosphere as the darkness and tension of the tale builds up. Along the way, the real power of the horror novel kicks in more and more, and what might seem like a slow burner soon becomes an inferno of action, terror and frightening realities revealed." ~ Readers' Favorite Book Reviews 
    It's been almost two years, but the nightmares still haunt Miriam Brooks—grisly images of her brother being slaughtered. A relaxing Spring Break at the beach seems like a good way to put some distance between her and the troubling past, but paradise shatters when she saves a tourist from something lurking beneath the waves. 
    Soon, she's on the trail of a sea creature from the legends of Vikings and Pirates. The fishermen of Cape Madre tell tales for the right price, and Miriam quickly learns of a string of disappearances all related to this mysterious monster. 
    The cops and the coast guard are meant to handle the crimes of men, but Miriam's been trained to find the creatures of lore—creatures like this. Pulled back into the life she wants to forget, Miriam is the last line of defense between man and myth.
