I’m excited to announce the release of my latest thriller novel, Silence in the Woods. This is the second in a new series I’m writing called, “Monsters in the Green Mountains”. The series explores the darker side of the idyllic Vermont landscape, one that is dotted with Bigfoot, giant snakes, demonic dolls, man-eating bats and other folkloric tales.
You’ve decided: you are writing a novel. No matter what obstacles stand in your way, this is the year that you’ll succeed in your dream. Whether you plan on writing a novel in 30 days or taking your time and spending the rest of this year on it, the task ahead is challenging.
Reading thriller books can be such a captivating experience. When you’re “down deep” into the book, coming out of it and back to reality is disconcerting at best, nearly paralyzing at worst. I’m excited to offer two new thriller book recommendations to you, along with the third “bonus” suspense recommendation…just for fun.
Research that goes into writing thriller books such as Silence in the Woods, fascinates me. In fact, if I’m not careful, it can overtake the writing process completely. But researching the Vermont Hospital for the Insane was a remarkable and eye-opening experience. Where to begin? I started at the very beginning: a visit to the Vermont State Archives.
One of the main reasons people give for not indulging in their passion for reading great thriller books? Lack of time. It makes sense. We are busy people these days and taking the time for a fiction reading fix sometimes doesn’t happen as frequently as we’d like.
I hope you’re looking for some great new suspense books to read. If so, I have some fantastic thriller book recommendations for you! Darcy Coates and Paul Doiron were both new-to-me authors, and I’m definitely looking forward to reading more by both of them.
Learning basic wilderness survival skills is a good idea. No matter what type of outdoor activity you enjoy one thing is certain: in nature things change.
