Lincoln Cole is trying is hand at publishing with Kindle Scout again. His first and only published work with them is Raven's Peak, a modern-action-horror and also the first of the Raven's Series. This time around, he's submitted another horror, The Everett Exorcism. There are only 10 days left to nominate it. Supporting him would mean a great deal to the both of us.
If you choose to nominate it for publication and it gets published through Kindle Scout, you'll get it for free as an eBook. Not a bad deal, eh?
You can nominate it and read the first 5,000 words here:
I've been watching Twin Peaks lately and I'm completely caught up on the series. It's magnificent. If you're a fan of the series, then I recommend getting on it immediately. It picks up right where Season 2 ended, with Special Agent Dale Cooper still trapped in The Black Lodge. Almost every cast member has returned and it's filled with great tension and suspense. The quirkiness is still there and so are the subtle hints that help give meaning to what is actually going on. And although I don't completely understand what those hints always mean, it's still a one-of-a-kind viewing experience. I'm also confident that as the season progresses, many questions will be answered.
There is also a playlist on Spotify that includes the music from the show, spanning from the themes to the featured bands that play at the Bang Bang Bar. The playlist is titled TWIN PEAKS: It Is Happening Again.
The Horror Show with Brian Keene is giving one lucky winner admission to The Ghost Town Writer's Retreat in Colorado. All you have to do is follow myself and Robert Swartwood on Twitter to enter by this June 21, 2017.
My handle is @seebach_sean and Robert's is @RobertSwartwood
The contest is only for ENTRY. It does NOT include travel or stay.
Obviously, we are ineligible to enter. But if I had the time and money to attend, I would.
I'm working on the early stages of my next book now and if I can execute it in the way that I hope I think readers will enjoy it. It follows a country-rock musician and a clairvoyant, both from two totally different backgrounds, who find themselves fighting against their greatest of fears. Nothing new there, right? But I think the antagonist and the concept of his motives are something fresh. Again, it will come to execution. May my Muse be with me.
I've also entered a story called Author Unknown from my latest book, a collection of short stories called A Looking In View, into the Borderlands Press Writer's Boot Camp. They only take 20 people. It's an extensive writing course that helps writers become better by teaching them how to deconstruct and analyze their work without bias. I'll know if I've been accepted sometime mid-July.
That's it for me. Hope this finds you well.
