2014 is coming to a close. A couple weeks ago, I gave you my top reads of the year… Now, let’s look to the year ahead. I want to share a handful of the new novels and novellas I’m looking forward to in 2015.

I’ll start with the company I write for, Samhain Publishing.

January kicks off with a judo chop/dropkick of new works from awesome authors!

Russell James- Dreamwalker (I will be posting a review on this one in a couple weeks)

Hunter Shea- Island of the Forbidden

Jonathan Janz- The Nightmare Girl


When family man Joe Crawford confronts a young mother abusing her toddler, he has no idea of the chain reaction he’s setting in motion. How could he suspect the young mother is part of an ancient fire cult, a sinister group of killers that will destroy anyone who threatens one of its members? When the little boy is placed in a foster home, the fanatics begin their mission of terror.

Soon the cult leaders will summon their deadliest hunters—and a ferocious supernatural evil—to make Joe pay for what he’s done. They want Joe’s blood and the blood of his family. And they want their child back.

Catherine Cavendish– The Pendle Curse (Samhain Publishing, February)

And from some other great publishers:

Brian Keene- The Lost Level (Apex Books, January)Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00020]
