Here’s what the publisher has to say about my novel HOUSE OF FALLEN TREES:
“I am really gonna put my balls on the table here and hand the whole world hammers…. House of Fallen Trees is easily one of the best books I read last year. I read it in a day after my wife read it in a day. It is that good. To call the book a ghost story dismisses it’s complexity and eschews the fact that this book is a game changer. It will reset expectations for the haunted house novel and once it get’s out there cause a glut of demand for the haunted house. The best analogy I can think of is saying that The Rising is just a zombie novel dismisses the issues of militarization, father/child relationships and bleak picture of the midAtlantic that dominate that novel.
House of Fallen Trees offers ghosts but it also presents issues of guilt, the nature of sibling relationships, the claustrophobic nature of rural America to the urbanite. It’s an amazing novel on lots of levels and easily the best haunted house novel of the last 20 years.”
Very flattering praise and I hope other people like it as well.

Also, Norman Rubenstein gives the book a great review over at Pod Of Horror, ep 53. If you are so inclined you can skip to the 1:11 (I think) mark and listen to the review, but you really should give the whole episode a listen, as well as ALL of their episodes. Good stuff there.
So, that’s the latest with that. Much love to Norm and Brian!
