Introducing R.A. Evans - One of Our Awesome Conference Speakers

I'd like to introduce R.A. Evans to everyone. He graduated from my alma mater, Grand Valley State University. By day, he's a marketing and public relations whiz. By night, he writes creepy fiction laced with blood and dark humor.

He'll be presenting a workshop at the I've Always Wanted to Write a Book conference on October 23, 2011 on "How the Genre You Write Matters as Much as the Story." I, for one, can't wait to hear his presentation!

His novel, Asylum Lake, is a good old-​fashioned hor­ror novel — acces­si­ble, creepy and emi­nently read­able. It tells of a writer, Brady Tan­ner, return­ing to his home-​town of Bed­lam Falls, Michi­gan. Brady’s recov­er­ing from the loss of his wife and is try­ing to pick up the pieces of his life. Well, he’s come to the wrong place!

Bed­lam Falls is a town that’s wit­nessed some ter­ri­ble events over the years. And over it all looms the specter of the shut­tered asy­lum. Read­ers learn more about the grue­some inci­dents that have beset the town by way of flash­back — related through three gen­er­a­tions of the Tanner fam­ily, all of who have been con­sumed, in one way or another, by the town’s sin­is­ter secrets. As the story unfolds read­ers learn why the asy­lum and its denizens con­tinue to cast a shadow over the town. And why Brady Tan­ner is now being tar­geted by a sin­is­ter supernatural force.

So pick up your copy now! It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Schuler Books.

Sounds like a great spooky story for the upcoming Halloween season! Can't wait to grab a blanket some rainy day and dig into it.

Wow, RA, this sounds like my kind of story. Can you imagine telling people you meet that you're from BEDLAM [Falls]? That in itself is a gem!! Looking forward to hearing you at conference.
