WIP Wednesday Gets Out of the Way

Because The House Eaters is now available in paperback. I'm excited, of course, because I love this story and its sarcastic, wise-cracking narrator, Nick Gillingham.

Nick Gillingham knew that moving before his senior year would really suck... but he never imagined a nightmare like Broughton’s Hollow. It’s bad enough that Nick hears disembodied voices after moving near “the House”—a crumbling relic with a sinister past. But then the local football team decides to make him their new tackling dummy, the “hot babe” at school starts manipulating him for her own nefarious purposes, and his parents’ marriage falls apart. When Nick’s elderly neighbor hints that whatever lurks within “the House” might be the cause of his troubles, he sets out to uncover the truth behind the local Indian legend of the “Eating Monster.” Nick will to have to rely on a band of social outcasts from school—and his looney kid sister—to put his life and family back together again. But even if he survives a close encounter with “the House,” Nick will still need to find a date for the homecoming dance...

So yeah, to sum up: excited. You can purchase a copy at Amazon.com or signed copies through me (just send an email to aaron.polson@gmail.com). Ebook edition to follow soon...

Love that cover.

Mine was delivered to me in India in pieces. So, so excited--I ate through a bunch of slush so I could start a Polson frenzy. (That should be a thing. The Polson Frenzy.) Reading Bottom Feeders now, then Loathsome, then this one...
