My new novel LOST IN DARKNESS (Bad Moon Books) has been released in trade paperback, with a limited hardcover and ebook editions to follow. The production is beautiful, with compelling cover art by the artist known as GAK which fits the novel perfectly.
LOST IN DARKNESS was a little experiment of mine. I wanted to see if I could write a contemporary supernatural horror novel that did not rely on violence or sex (quite a change of pace for me…though there is a lot of steamy repressed teenaged passion). The book was actually written in the mid 90s but only survived in manuscript form; a friend of mine retyped the whole thing for me so the novel could finally see print.
The novel has already received a very rewarding review at Hellnotes that makes me feel I was successful in my aims:
“The title Lost in Darkness may be interpreted as a metaphor for sifting through the complicated dynamics of passion, loyalty, uncertainty, and acceptance. The character of Dana Tower is a tough and sweet chick. She can square her shoulders, yet is not immune from going weak in the knees. Jeffrey Thomas infuses her with youthful exuberance and dogged determination; reminding us that challenges, mysterious or mundane, can be fulfilling and rhapsodic.”
