PURGATORY: A. LOPEZ, JR.
Just getting in, Apple Jacks? Yeah, a full night of howling at the moon really takes the wind out of you, doesn’t it? And speaking of wind, do you feel one kicking up? It’s colder than usual and causing goose bumps to form on your lizard skin. Nope, not Jack Frost on its way. It’s just the writing of A. LOPEZ, JR. set to eviscerate you and that only means one thing … well, two really! The first is that it’s Daily Book Giveaway time! The next is that you have the chance to win a book that’ll curl your toes, braid your hair and spank you into Sunday! (Not that you don’t deserve to be spanked! I know what you did! BWAHHHHAAHHHA!!!)
I love nothing more than introducing you to new horror writing talent and A. LOPEZ, JR. is coming your way! He’s serving up nice creepy stories and is offering up his chiller PURGATORY – 13 TALES OF THE MACABRE to convince you of his writing chops! There’s ONE SIGNED PRINT COPY up for grabs and you have no idea what I had to do to get him to part with it! He’s a tough cookie so I took my clue from Poe’s THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM. That blade swung mighty close to a major artery before he caved in! And he even promised not to press charges and to count to ten before he comes after me! How’s that for being a gentleman? Why the last person that gave me gave me a running headstart wasn’t a person at all, but the story about how I got away from that flesh-eating zombie will have to wait!
PURGATORY is an anthology comprised of thirteen blistering stories that’ll keep you reading and holding onto that cross for protection!!!!
