Phoenix Rising – FLINT RANCH went live as a Kindle eBook at midnight this morning (that sounds so wrong). It’s a short read, just over 14k words, 70 pages. The cover art (front and back), like COLOSSUS, also the work of Brian Bullard, is gorgeous, brutal, and enigmatic. The story itself is a harrowing tale of child abuse and a struggle for identity, the first small steps in the becoming of a serial killer. Readers say they not only relate to the main character, Thatch, but also root for him as well. More than one reader said they like FLINT RANCH better than COLOSSUS.
FLINT RANCH is the first volume of an origin story – the origin of the enigmatic serial killer of the My Name Is Not Heather Stokes novels, The Phoenix (introduced in COLOSSUS as Avery Rhodes). However, one does not need to read COLOSSUS in order to read FLINT RANCH, or vice-versa; Consider it enrichment material.
FLINT RANCH is now available in paperback ($6.99) and Kindle eBook ($2.99) via Amazon, or you can get a signed paperback directly from me using PayPal for $5+shipping (firstname.lastname@example.org). COLOSSUS is also available in paperback ($19.99) and Kindle eBook ($4.99) via Amazon, or signed paperback directly from me for $15+shipping using PayPal (I recommend the paperback: the cover design is amazing and the matte finish feels like leather!).
