The Horns of September: My Horror/Thriller [coupon post #33]

Hi everyone -

Am offering my horror/conspiracy thriller for free through the end of February.

Here is the info plus link:

The Horns of September
Coupon Code: RU44P
Expires: February 28, 2010

http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/7345

Synopsis:

Date: September 1961
Place: Longview, South Carolina
Nickname: Shucktown
Unofficial Motto: Someone is always shuckin’ something in Shucktown

Dilemma: All is not right in Shucktown. Just ask Chuck Beckett. He’s young, in love and readying his group to audition for Motown Records. He’s sure his will be the first interracial group signed by the emerging recording giant. He should be on top of the world, but he’s not. For despite living out his dreams, Chuck feels as if he’s headed for certain disaster. Repressed memories have begun to surface in the form of dark, paralyzing depressions. These debilitating episodes convince him of one thing – that he is soon about to die. Chuck tries his best to shake it off as so much teenage angst. He finds it increasingly difficult to do so after the good friend who warns him about “the devils in Shucktown,” winds up murdered. Her death is the catalyst that leads Chuck Beckett to step out of his comfort zone to confront cabals, demons, monsters knitted out of darkness and all the horrors that arise from the curse known as The Horns of September.

---------------

Thank you and hope you enjoy!

Wow, thanks for all the nice replies! Just stopped by to see if anyone even took notice. Wasn't expecting this.

I'm glad you all took full advantage by beheadin ... er, I mean DOWNLOADING a copy. I loved writing this story and the protagonist is close to my heart. He's a good guy unlike some of my more nefarious characters!

I don't think that I mentioned that this is the first in a series. It'll eventually blossom magically into a trilogy. The story can standalone, but hopefully you'll be interested to see what happens next. Hint: the conspiracy grows! LOL

Thanks again and I hope you all enjoy reading it! Look forward to your comments.

You're very welcome and thanks so much for the download!

I think the great thing about taking advantage of offers like this is it allows you to stockpile reading selections. If this weekend you decide you want to read something lighter, you probably have something to fill that need. Conversely, if tomorrow night you suddenly crave reading something a little darker and creepier, you're covered.

Feedback is always welcome. It's always interesting to hear how the stories we write are received.

Hi there,

I went to download it but it show's it's $1. Is that because I'm not in the US? Now $1 isn't going to break the bank or anything lol but I was expecting free. I like dark and creepy.
