So let's see. News. DEAD RIVER is releasing in only a few weeks! Are you excited? This will be my fifth book and I'm kind of shocked I've lasted this long. (Okay, I almost didn't.)
Anyway, it's based on a whitewater rafting trip I took with my husband and his friends on the Dead River in Maine. (Side note to Mainers: I am sorry to disappoint you if you thought this was a book about the gas station). We lived in Maine, once, a million years ago, until the madness set in. Being quite timid and completely unadventurous, it's a wonder I even made it out on a river called The Dead. What was I thinking? I will tell you three things I learned during that trip:
- I look like a black garbage bag filled with potatoes, in a wetsuit.
- If you give me a life-saving paddle AND a granola bar during the trip, expect that I will drop the life-saving paddle AND hold onto the granola bar for dear life (it's food! and it has chocolate chips in it!) if we should fall out of the raft.
- If I am with you, we WILL fall out of the raft. I think because dirty, freezing water with gross things in it likes me a lot.
This is the cover blurb:
My friends and I are spending prom weekend at a remote wooded cabin on the Dead. The Dead River.
I thought it was going to be just us.
I was wrong.
Nothing is what it seems in this creepy paranormal thriller by Cyn Balog.
I know! Doesn't it sound like Jason will be involved? He isn't, but that would probably be just my luck if I ever decided to go rafting on the Dead again. Jason shows up in his freaky hockey mask, or creepy hands come out of the water a la the cover. Trust me, you do not want to go with me next time. Which, there will NOT be a next time. For the above reasons.
If you would like to check it out, go here. And I can't lie, I would love if you would buy a copy, too.
Also, Nichola Reilly, that little vixen, is working on her 2014 edits and just gearing up to write the sequel! Gosh, I hate talking about myself in the third person. No wonder writers are crazy.
