It occurred to me that I still hadn’t given any of you a sample of my writing outside of my blog posts. With the release of Darker Shadows Lie Below coming up, I feel it’s only fair for you to get a little taste before you buy it. Sure, you’ll be able to sample the book on Amazon, but I wanted to provide you with something unique here. Below is a chapter my editor and I decided needed to be cut. I love this chapter, and it gives a lot of background on why the protagonist is the way he is, but it doesn’t push the plot forward. It had to go! (“Murder your darlings.” -Arthur Quiller-Couch)
Rather than waste something I really like, I decided that the dozen or so people who actually read this blog should get to see it. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Stay tuned for more excerpts just before release.
