Have you ever wanted an award-winning author to help with your writing?
We’re in the last 30-odd hours of the Kickstarter for Devils’ Field, the new Jessie Shimmer novel from Lucy A. Snyder… but even more than the book itself, there’s still pretty awesome additional rewards to be had.
For example, the backer reward at the $120 level is a critique from Gary Braunbeck, who is writing the introduction for the book.
"Gary A. Braunbeck is, quite simply, one of the best storytellers working in this genre — or any other. His brooding, poetic prose reaches a deeper level, and impacts both the characters and the reader."
– Bram Stoker Award-winner Brian Keene, author of The Rising, City of the Dead, and The Conqueror Worms
I have been lucky enough to be in a class taught by Gary, and let me tell you, if I could get this reward, I freaking would.

Introducing A New Urban Fantasy Series From Alliteration Ink
“My name is Sam Brody, and I like to ruin fun.”
Sam’s adventures begin with the standalone prequel novella The House on Concordia Drive. His job on late-night radio is to debunk the existence of things that go bump in the night… but this haunting isn’t as straightforward as it seems. Up against the reputation of an infamous documentary and fighting to keep his personal life together, Sam has to discover if the case is a hoax, a ghost, or something… else. Perhaps the best investigator of a haunted house is a haunted man.
Then things kick into high gear with the full-length novel The Red Eye, as Sam continues to pull back the curtain on paranormal hoaxes, exposing the charlatans posing as psychics, vampires, and alien messengers.
Sure, he started out hoping that someone would prove that there was something “more,” but after all the con artists and fakes, that hope’s gone.
Sam Brody definitely doesn’t believe in the supernatural.
With one phone call, he discovers the supernatural believes in him.
The books are available at http://redeye.alliterationink.com or at online booksellers near your screen!
