I got the final for draft of the front cover of Little Graveyard on the Prairie this evening. This is it. What do you think? The book will be released soon by Bad Moon Books.
Here are some blurbs:
Little Graveyard on the Prairie begins with a kind of homespun and cuddly feel–a father playing with his young daughter on a farm. But something isn’t quite right out there in the Oklahoma boondocks at night. A nerve begins to twitch near the reader’s left eye. The creepy feeling spreads, becomes more unsettling as one suspects something bad is going on. The slowly revealed reality of what is actually happening is truly chilling, but at the same time heart rending. The conclusion is inevitable of course, but totally unexpected. Good writing. Compelling story. Well worth reading. Highly recommended. -Gene O’Neill, author of The Burden of Indigo and White Tribe
Steve Wedel’s Prairie is home to all manner of ghosts; it is a heartfelt tale that will haunt you long after the final grave has been dug. -Greg Lamberson, Author of Johnny Gruesome and Personal Demons
Steven Wedel’s Little Graveyard on the Prairie is a poignant tale of love, death, and loss, and the tragedy of the hollow shell that’s left behind. This is horror that goes beyond tugging at the heart strings – Wedel’s novella ties heart strings in knots. -Angeline Hawkes, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of The Commandments
A touching tale of pain and madness. Wedel’s voice is one of the most intelligent and moving I’ve read lately, and I’m now looking forward to many more such works by him. -Kim Paffenroth, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Gospel of the Living Dead, Dying to Live, and Orpheus and the Pearl
Little Graveyard on the Prairie is emotionally engaging, haunting, and bittersweet — a creepy piece of work with plenty of atmosphere and genuinely eerie moments. Once you’ve begun reading, you won’t want to put it down until the very last page has been turned. I don’t think it’s exaggeration at all to say that Little Graveyard on the Prairie has the makings of a classic. Wedel is an excellent writer who once again proves he’s got the chops to stand with the best of them. -Christopher Fulbright, author of Of Wolf and Man, co-author of Blood Coven
Mr. Wedel "digs up" a boneyard of frights and unexpected pleasures. The author of The Werewolf Saga is in top-form. A welcomed addition to any fireside collection of weird tales. – Karen Koehler, author of Slayer
I really think this may be the best thing I’ve written. I hope you guys like it once it’s released on the general public.
