Portlandtown Tease

Hey boys and girls, guess what time it is? That's right! It's Portlandtown teaser time...text only version! Hey, where are you going? Sorry, but it's a book so there aren't any movie pictures, not yet anyway. There will be some very pretty pictures shortly (cover) and maybe a few of them will move as we get closer to publication (October 16). Today I simply offer the official back cover pitch, which barely scratches the surface in terms of story but does make for a nice tease.

Welcome to Portlandtown, where no secret is safe—
not even those buried beneath six feet of Oregon mud.

Joseph Wylde isn’t afraid of the past, but he knows some truths are
better left unspoken. When his father-in-law’s grave digging awakens more
than just ghosts, he invites the former marshal into his home hoping a booming
metropolis and two curious grand twins will be enough to keep the old man
out of trouble. Unfortunately, the marshal’s past soon follows, unleashing a
terrible storm on a city already knee deep in floodwaters. As the dead
mysteriously begin to rise it’s up to Joseph and his family to find the truth
before an unspeakable evil can spread across the West and beyond.

Ooooo...sounds scary. And it is! But it's also full of adventure, suspense, and vitaminseverything a growing mind needs to keep it entertained.
