A Big Thumb's Up From Publishers Weekly!

This week, Publishers Weekly released a mighty nice review of my upcoming novel, Hell Hollow. This is what they had to say:
"Braiding together three distinct story lines --- a coming-of-age tale involving a quartet of adventurous kids, a woman's quest for vengeance against a maniacal hitchhiker, and the vigilante murder of a serial killer --- Kelly (Blood Kin) ingeniously blends unapologetically graphic horror, supernatural suspense, and poignant mystery. When 12-year-old Keith Bishop is sent from Atlanta to rural Tennessee for the summer, he stumbles across one of the area's darkest secrets: a haunted backwoods hollow where, back in 1917, a nomadic murderer allegedly "harvesting souls for Satan" was hunted down and killed. Somewhere in the shadowy, kudzu-covered grove, the madman's spirit remains alive, waiting for unholy retribution. Kelly's use of dichotomy, from the contrasting urban and rural settings to the generational dissimilarities between Keith and his 95-year-old grandfather, helps to accentuate the intensity and otherworldliness of evil in this well-crafted and wildly entertaining bloodcurdler."
