Patricia BallasBeautiful view and what wonderful writing companions. I'm afraid I would be guilty of getting something warm to drink and a soft quilt curling up with both on a nice sofa and enjoying both the view and dogs till I fell asleep.

Finally, made it to the altar. Killer Within is #159 on Amazon this morning and #1 in Hard-Boiled Mystery among the likes of Michael Connelly, John Sandford and Nelson Demille. #2 in Serial Killers. #2 in Vigilante Justice. I see these categories and I think, what kind of book did I write? No wonder my wife worries about the neighbors reading them. :) Thank you all for your help and support to make this happen!

Gloria FrostWhen I read it I asked myself "how did I miss the signals when he was growing up?" Kidding of course. So glad you're able to share your creativity with us and still be such a remarkable person and family man. Creative minds/talents run strong in family! You and Eric have certainly kept us from boredom! 143. Aunt Gloria4 days ago   ·  1

Always a groomsman, never a groom. Being #2 is hard for a competitive guy like myself to swallow, but I do love seeing Killer Within at #550 in all of Kindle one week after its launch! Thanks again for everyone's support! ... See MoreSee Less

Book Review: I'll just say it. I love Stephen King. His books, his persona, his willingness to help new writers. King's book On Writing stares at me every day while I write from its place of honor on my desk. So there's always a lot of excitement in the Gunhus house when a new King book comes out.

I was looking forward to Revival because the word on the street was that it had that old-time King magic, the kind that would take me back to when I first read his books in my early teens. If you were like me, you read them at night with all the lights on, stealing furtive glances to the windows. It always seemed that the night lurked a little more dangerously on the other side of the glass when I was reading King as opposed to when I visited Narnia, Middle Earth or Arrakis.

King's characterization, his creepy call-backs that can take a snippet of a child's nursery rhyme or a song lyric and make it terrifying, his over-sized imagination were all on show in Revival. But I kept waiting for that shudder to pass through me, that pit to form in my stomach from the scare on the page. There were scares and creepiness to be sure, but not the smack over the head I was hoping for. Once it ended, I admit I felt a little unsatisfied.

But after giving it a couple of weeks, I decided that Revival was just a really, really good novel--suffering more from my high expectation than any lacking in King's telling of the story. I learn so much as a writer from his books, but first and foremost I'm a fan who just likes being entertained. I was, but I hope that Finder's Keepers coming out later this year makes me want turn the lights back on and worry about what just bumped against my window from out in the dark, dark night.

"My name is Jack Templar and I am a monster hunter." Opened a new Word doc this morning and wrote those words to start Jack Templar and the Lord of the Demons (Book 5). Amazing how fast Jack's voice is coming back. He's been waiting a while so he's good and ready. Looking forward to the next few months hanging out with him. ... See MoreSee Less

Killer Within is also available on audiobook. Award-winning narrator Joyce Bean delivers an amazing performance and really brings the book to life. There's a free audio sample on the Amazon page if you want to check it out. Also, if you sign up for Audible, you can get Killer Within for free...which is my favorite price! Hope you'll check it out.

I've tried to personally reach out to as many of you as I could for your help getting the word out yesterday. Your shares, comments and posts have been great! If I missed you, please let me thank you here. The launch was awesome and Killer Within continues to claw it's way up the Amazon charts. Attached is a fun screenshot of one of the categories the book is in. #2 Bestseller. #2 Hot New Release. #1 Top Rated. Unfortunately, The Dead Key in #1 spot is also the #1 book in all of Amazon. Heavy lifting to top that indeed. Once again, thank you for yesterday and for your continued support. Your help meant a lot to me. Cheers! ... See MoreSee Less
