“CRUELTY is one hell of a fun and — dare I say it — SCARY read!  Imagine Joe Lansdale and Edward Lee getting together to watch a slasher film with a bucket of meth-sprinkled popcorn between ’em . . . and then Clive Barker steps in to crash the party.  I can’t wait to see what happens next!  Check it out, and I guarantee you’ll come back for the next episode, and the one after that, and the one after that . . . . “

E. here. For those of you looking to start my serial novel, CRUELTY, I’ve scheduled some promotions. Below you will find a Booklikes Giveaway for CRUELTY: Episode One (Audio Edition), narrated by Kevin R. Tracy, who continues to do a fantastic job. His performance of Twon is my personal favorite. Click on the cover below to enter to win one of five copies. The giveaway ends on June 14th.

If you’re not a fan of audio books, no worries. Starting in the wee hours of May 30th, CRUELTY: Episode One will be free for five full days. So if you’ve been planning to buy the first episode, I’d hold off until then so you can snatch it up for free.

For those fans new and old, CRUELTY: Episode Five is currently in editing and should be available in the next few weeks, if not sooner. The episode is a great deal longer than previous installments, and does bring many story lines to a close. In other words, you can read Episodes One through Five and feel as if you’ve read a complete novel, even though the overall story is far from finished.

Thank you for your past, present, and future support, and if the idea moves you, feel free to share this post.
