Cover Reveal and Presale for The Hobgoblin of Little Minds

 Presenting the cover for my new novel 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐇𝐨𝐛𝐠𝐨𝐛𝐥𝐢𝐧 𝐨𝐟 𝐋𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐌𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐬. Artwork by Vincent Chong. You've seen his art on covers for Stephen King, Joe Hill, and Josh Malerman.




Publication Date: 2/18/21 - just 90 days away
𝐓𝐡𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐦 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐩𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐋𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐄𝐝𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧—𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐲 𝐭𝐮𝐧𝐞𝐝!
The novel rewrites the Werewolf mythos (but never uses the "W" word) and tackles mental illness in a sensitive but stark and (I think) stunning manner. It takes place in the abandoned Northville Psychiatric Hospital near metro Detroit, a true setting that is legendary in the area. The hospital was recently demolished, and the novel's climax occurs during the demolition.


A series of blog posts on the book will be out this week, including —

The depiction of mental illness in horror at Ginger Nuts of Horror
The Werewolf trope over at Divination Hollows 'Asylums' as horror settings at Inkheist
and why Florence +the Machine's Howl offered inspiration at Char's Horror Corner

Cover Art is Here for The Hobgoblin of Little Minds, but....

 



It's been a pleasure working with Vincent Chong on the artwork. Look for the cover reveal and presale sometime before the Halloween candy runs out. The novel tackles mental illness and its treatment with sensitivity but stark honesty.
THE HOBGOBLIN OF LITTLE MINDS:
Kori Persephone Driscoe suffered through her dad's mental illness. All she wanted was for him to get better, but instead he disappeared. Kori trespasses into the abandoned Northville Psychiatric Hospital, the last place her dad was treated, seeking solace and traces of his memory. What she finds instead is something no longer human living deep in the underground tunnels.
During the last days of the hospital, a roque psychiatrist had been manipulating the mood swings of the mentally ill, transforming patients into savage, manic creatures who seek justice by the light of the full moon. When the creatures hunt for prey, only an escaped patient and her beloved child can help Kori survive. The creatures want blood, Kori wants to save her dad's life, but none may survive, because the whole hospital is about to be blown to pieces, and Kori will be buried alive.

Announcing a New Novel Coming Early 2021: 'THE HOBGOBLIN OF LITTLE MINDS'

 


I have a new novel on the way! Very excited for this. Similar to how previous works tackles Addiction, this novel features mental illness. With stark sensitivity, empathy, and honesty to those who suffer from Bipolar Disorder, and their caregivers,. The work takes place in a very real setting of a nearby abandoned psychiatric hospital, and rewrites the Werewolf mythos (though it never uses the word 'werewolf' even once)


Artwork by Vincent Chong. Here are a few of his works:
