What Every Author Fears the Most

Let’s kick off October with something scary–every author’s worst nightmare.   It’s not that we’re afraid you won’t like what we like; disliking it is fine. What kills authors is if you don’t read our books at all. Think of a great recipe sampled only by one person, a sofa sat on by two or… Continue reading What Every Author Fears the Most

Publishing is a Long Road: On Not Giving Up, Even When I Really Really Wanted To.

Oh where, oh where, oh where have I been these past couple weeks? Why, turning myself into a Real Author™, of course! It’s bloody exhausting. I just finished up a promo for my books.

What Boys Are Made Of: New Cover

There’s a quiet change sweeping my books…

Well, quiet until now.

What Boys Are Made Of has a new cover. New blurb. New look.

Same book, but made-over in preparation for the cover of Saint Flaherty book 2, The Mercy of Men.

Want to see?

…Of course you do!3D Render

With the swing of a baseball bat, a back alley prize fight ends in one teenager’s death. The other walks away with cash in his hand and a conscience screaming for mercy.

Just another day in Buchell.

Five years after the Second Civil War ended, isolated Appalachia is a minefield ruled by cartels and warlord despots. In the town of Buchell, Simon “Saint” Flaherty cage fights for money—until the day a fight gone wrong leaves him a murderer.

In a town that saw the worst of the war, the death only boosts Simon’s reputation, and his coach enters him to headline a local tournament. No one seems to notice that Simon’s in no condition to train, wracked by guilt over his opponent’s death. No one seems to care, least of all his coach—not with a career-defining fight on the line.

But Simon’s coach isn’t the only man in Buchell with an eye for talent. The cartels that keep a stranglehold over the mountains are scouting for new recruits, and the local kingpin has his eye on the teenager with the one-punch knockout.

Although Simon wants nothing to do with the cartels, he’s already involved: his last match was no tragic accident, but a set-up by the kingpin himself.

Already haunted by one death, Simon will do anything to get out of the next fight. In Buchell, anythinggoes a long way.

In this gritty debut set in a dystopian Appalachia, S. Hunter Nisbet presents a stunning story of surviving the choices we make—and those that are made for us.

Of course, a couple of you might be saying, “But I liked the old cover.”

I did too; but I like this one a heck of a lot better. It’s edgier, darker, more gripping. This is the sort of cover that will draw in readers.

If you still love the old cover that much, you can buy the print edition, which still has the old one, and will match the print edition of book 2 because I’m not so heartless as to make people have non-matching books in their series (the horror!)

Now, who can’t wait to show this to everyone? It might, just might, just definitely be me.

Announcing the Publication of What Boys Are Made Of

More than four years ago—was it five, was it six?—I wrote a short story late one night. There was nothing of consequence about it, except the voice. It was urgent, and close. It spoke in words you’d hear any day of the week, using grammar that was less than standard. Its metaphors were colloquial, whispers intimate.… Continue reading Announcing the Publication of What Boys Are Made Of
