Seedy Cover Daech 1600x2600rez


Ghosts, vampires, monsters, UFO’s and Bigfoot are all occurrences that the city of Seedy Hills experiences in this collection of short stories.  Through them all, newspaper reporter Eric Green tries to answer the questions and solve the mysteries that plague the town.  But how can an earth bound reporter make peace with UFO aliens?  What can he do against the monsters that lurk in the sewers of this small town?  And what can one mortal do against the haunting of ghosts and undead vampires?


In my next E-book, Seedy Hills, an odd little town, citizens believes that a true blood sucking vampire is preying on the residents.  One poor soul, bled dry, crashes his pick-up into the Twisty Cone.  Ice cream hungry witnesses see the telltale fang marks and hear the ambulance workers comment on a vampire bite.  That is all it takes to put the city in turmoil.  Vampires in Seedy Hills tells the story of the worst type of vampire.


In the Seedy Hills vampire story I have a little fun with how rumors spread and change into something nothing close to what they were originally.  I don’t really think you can blame any one person for the exaggerations.  They just happen.  But, in the Seedy Hills Bigfoot story we know exactly who exaggerated the facts.  And of all people, it turns out being someone usually responsible for telling the truth!  Sometimes there are good reasons for little white lies.  When Bigfoot turns up in the woods around Seedy Hills the local hunters look forward to their chance to hunt some really big game.  The problem is that the big game ends up being smarter than the hunters!


Look for your chance to pre-order Seedy Hills, an odd little town at Apple, Barnes & Noble and Kobo on-line stores starting in late June.  On August 1st 2014 it will be available at most other on-line e-book outlets.

Seedy Hills, an odd little town…

I’m working on a new series of short stories that occur in the small rural Kentucky town of Seedy Hills. The city is named after the beautiful summer wild flowers that cover the hills in the area around the town. Oddly enough, the city is remarkably similar to the city of Russellville where I now reside. Many of the landmarks, people, local issues and oddities play into the stories.

The stories involve Vampires, Ghosts, UFOs, murders and more.  All of them tied together by the main character, Eric Green. Eric is a reporter for the local newspaper. He’s a stubborn, arrogant, self centered semi-retired writer who knows he has more experience and talent than anyone else at the small town paper, including the bumbling management. With his connections, talent, keen smell for a good story and hard work he solves the case and saves the day. All the time, sarcastically analyzing the backward city he calls home, and the people who live there.

Through the series of short stories Eric learns about life, love and the fact that he, and other people have feelings. Late in life, the rusty old reporter learns that being from an odd little run down town may not be all that bad.

I’ve got about half the book completed and proofread. I would be interested in anyone wanting to be beta readers. I feel it may be funny but it’s hard to judge your own humor. I’m a little warped and I know I find a lot of things funny that others my not. We’ll just have to see how that goes. If you want to pre read this series leave a comment and your contact info. Maybe you can help me make my next best seller!
