{Guest Post and Giveaway} Brett Williams, author of From Murky Depths

Thank you so much, Michelle, for allowing me to be your guest. I truly appreciate the opportunity. I wish I could read as many books as you do. This year I've had the opportunity to read a personal record number of books. However, the more you read, the more you want to read. I suppose that's why you call yourself a book addict.

With so many great choices out there, it can be tough, not only to decide what to select from the ever-growing to-be-read pile, but to decide what to add to a reading list.

I tell ya, for a newly emerging author such as my self, it can be a little tough getting the attention of readers. Luckily, my new release, From Murky Depths, published by Gallows Press, has some great cover art to help draw readers in. Perhaps a little too creepy for some potential readers. But as the saying goes, don't judge a book by its cover.

From Murky Depths features a pretty scary face on it. A hybrid. Any devout Christian should not be deterred. The protagonist for Depths, good ol' boy David Miller, faces some pretty daunting challenges, that's for sure. After all, he's already dealt with massive flooding and now trolls over in his boat to help the residents of Clayton, only to find himself embroiled in an epic battle of good versus evil. Perhaps equally daunting is David's test of faith, an aspect of this tale I'm very proud of. Although religious faith plays little more than a character trait, it is a very important part of this thriller/shocker.

Writing tales that take place in rural settings or small towns is something I love. I grew up in Dexter, Missouri. I guess a part of that comes out in a lot of my writing. In fact, the fictional town of Clayton, Missouri exists right next door to Dexter, the setting of the sequel I'm currently working on.

Readers can find From Murky Depths at Amazon.

Buy From Murky Depths here!

Anyone who leaves a review is automatically entered to win a paperback copy of my novel, Family Business, coming soon from Gallows Press. Family Business is a hardcore horror/crime novel that puts the atrocities of puppy mills into human terms. The novel has been called “siction” and “torture porn.” I call it a lot of fun.

But for now, I want to get From Murky Depths into the hands of readers. So I would like to give away a paperback copy. Simply leave a comment. I'll select a random winner the next day at 7 pm CST.

Thank you again, Michelle.
