The New Tylor James Book: GATOR HOUSE, TBR on October 1st!

Fellow Friends of the Macabre,

The temperature is dropping, leaves are changing color, and before we know it, it will be Halloween night. In honor of the ‘spooky season’, many people enjoy reading horror books — either re-visiting classics they know and love, or reading something entirely new. I’m delighted to bring to your attention something of the latter: my novelette, GATOR HOUSE, will be published on October 1st in celebration of Halloween. At only 80 pages, it will provide you a tasty treat which you may consider an ‘appetizer’, before moving on to the delicious brain-meals that are Bram Stoker’s Dracula or Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House.

If you enjoy reading about characters you can root for, and if you enjoy monsters, GATOR HOUSE is for you. For a better idea as to what you may be getting yourself into, here’s the backcover blurb:

Samantha and Amy are a happy couple on a honeymoon road trip. They can hardly wait to arrive at the Gulf of Mexico and dive into the sea for a refreshing moonlight swim.

Their rosy ideals are crushed when an unexpected detour in South Texas leads them to the GATOR HOUSE: an ancient, decaying farmhouse converted into a bar & restaurant. Strange, backwoods characters work and drink at the establishment. Muddy, sticky, mosquito-infested swampland surround the old house on all sides. Enormous alligators lurk in the dark with red eyes, waiting for the perfect moment to strike . . .

Will Samantha and Amy escape the threatening patrons of GATOR HOUSE? And if so, how will they defend themselves against the hungry alligators who have not tasted human flesh for nearly a month?

Time for the gators to feed.
Time for Amy and Samantha to find out what they are truly made of.

If this sounds like a good time to you, feel free to hit the pre-order link below for the kindle version, or eagerly await the October 1st release of the paperback.

Wishing you a most happy October season,

Tylor James.

PS: The incredibly talented writer/artist, Terry M. West (author of The Devil’s List, What Price Gory, among many other excellent horror books) designed the utterly wild cover art for GATOR HOUSE.

WEIRDSMITH: ISSUE ONE by Tylor James (HOT OFF THE ‘TOO MUCH WEIRD’ PRESS)

Hey, you!!!

Yeah, I mean you! Ahh, good — I’ve finally got your attention. Listen up, please:

I want to tell you about this little book just released by Too Much Weird press. The ink is dry, but the pages are warm. WEIRDSMITH: Issue One features two very strange and macabre tales of mine, Mosquito Summer — a disturbing creature-feature story to make you ITCH — and Old Dance Hall — a supernatural tale which will creep you out, and possibly make you weep simultaneously.

It’s available on kindle for just $1.99, or you can procure yourself a very affordable paperback. See here, if interested, and I sure hope you are: https://www.amazon.com/Weirdsmith-Magazine-Number-Tylor-James-ebook/dp/B08Q1WHZRQ/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Tylor+James&qid=1609862516&s=books&sr=1-1

Now, if you read Weirdsmith: Issue One, finding that you enjoy shivering with terror and gooseflesh, please consider keeping an eye out (just not literally! ha ha) for Issue Two, which will spotlight yet another talented author.

If interested in reading my work, but aren’t invested in buying a full book of my stuff, Weirdsmith: Issue One will make for a fine sampling. THEN, you won’t help but have to lay down your hard-earned cash for a copy of my next, big book: MATTERS MOST MACABRE (available May 2021). That, at least, is my selfish hope.

Thanks for reading, and if you enjoy the tales in WEIRDSMITH: Issue One, feel free to leave a review. I’d appreciate that.

Stay weird, friends.

Tylor James.

PS: Terry M. West is the editor of TMW Press, as well as designer of the rad cover for Weirdsmith Issue One, and is one fantastic writer of horror. Give the fella a looksie, you won’t regret it! http://terrymwest.com/
