Cover Art RedemptionMy ninth novel, Redemption – the long awaited sequel to my first two novels Covenant and Sacrifice – is now available! Order your copy from Amazon.com – it is also a Kindle Select title, so available free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers! One of my my favorite horror novelists of all time, Edward Lee, read the novel at the end of December and described it like this:

“Redemption unfolds as horror-hero Joe Kieran’s finish-line sprint down the last leg of Everson’s addictive occult storyline of blood-gushing demonic machinations, cursed existential characters, and abominations incarnate.  Everson is a MASTER of the hardcore; he’s the rare kind of writer who’s so good you can’t proceed with your day until the book is finished.  No matter what you have planned, forget it; you won’t bother until you’ve turned the last page. (I missed a playoff game because of this book!)  Everson kicks out the jambs in this gory story of haunted religious missions, mind-boggling sex-rituals, and jaunts into Hell (and let’s not forget the communal demonic toilet!)  The Little Mermaid this ain’t. This is balls-to-the-wall, no-f–ing-around hardcore horror that hits the reader with the impact of a bucket of hot blood and innards in the face.  Read it!”

You can’t ask for a better endorsement than that!

Yours in Dark Arts,

John Everson

Connie Johnson Hambley

Connie Johnson Hambley grew up on a small dairy farm just north of New York City. In 1965, an arsonist burned her family’s barn to the ground. From that experience grew the story that became The Charity. A retrospective on the fire can be found here.

Hambley writes about strong women from their perspective in situations that demand the most from them. No special powers, no gadgets, no super human abilities. Just a woman caught up or embroiled in something that she has to get out of, hopefully alive.

Every bit of personal experience is used to create a story that is as believable as it is suspenseful. Using her law and investment background in ways unique, creative, but not altogether logical, Hambley has enjoyed robust professional pursuits that include writing for Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Nature Biotechnology and MassHighTech. Experience at a major bank in Boston introduced her to clever schemes dreamed up to launder money.

Hambley writes page-turners. The Charity is first in The Jessica Trilogy, followed by its sequel, The Troubles. The final book in the trilogy, The Wake, was published September 2017.

The Wake

World-class equestrian, Jessica Wyeth, is thrust into the middle of a game of geopolitical warfare. Reeling from revelations of her connection to the violent struggles to expunge Britain from Northern Ireland, she’s blocked by unseen forces from returning to the United States. 

The facts of Jessica’s birth become her deepest secret. Her late mother was considered by Northern Ireland to be a terrorist and her father is a key negotiator between violent Irish Republican Army (IRA) factions in Belfast and the British Government.

Jessica vows to keep her father’s identity hidden at all costs.

Only one man knows Jessica’s truth. Michael Connaught, heir to an international crime family who profits from political uprisings, struggles with his own legacy. He is torn between protecting the woman he loves or using her secrets as a catalyst for inciting global unrest.

When a terrorist bomb rips through the crowd at the Atlanta-based Summer Olympic Games, Jessica is forced to fight for her life in ways she never dreamed.
