MERRY EVILAPPLEMAS EVE, people. Looks like Black River Orchard is $2.99 today in ELECTRIC BOOK FORMAT for various BOOK-READING MACHINES, which is to say, on Kindle, on Kobo, on Apple, on B&N and on Blitzen, on Donner and — er, sorry, got a little carried away there.

That’s a delightfully not-expensive price for a book that was a USA Today bestseller, and that was named one of the best horror novels of the year by Esquire Magazine, by Paste Magazine, was listed as one of NPR’s Books We Love in 2023, and has gotten similar shout-outs at USA Today and Den of Geek and other excellent places. Hey, it’s got small town suburban folk horror, it’s got cults, it’s got twisted American history, it’s got evil apples and various tidbits of apple learnin‘, it’s got monsters, it’s a real hoot.

So, check it out, if you’re so inclined.

And leave a review, if you can, because that’s what keeps the Review Gods happy, so they do not smite us poor blubbering authors into word gelatin.
