J.A. Konrath, author of the Jack Daniels series (Whiskey Sour, Fuzzy Navel, etc) has written a horror novel, Afraid, under the pseudonym Jack Kilborn. My daughter read it in one sitting and absolutely loved it. If you want a taste of Kilborn, I'm thrilled to be able to offer you a downloadable eBook.
It’s called SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong by Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch. SERIAL is a horror novella. Like a deeply twisted version of an “After School Special,” it is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides.
[I believe it was Wanda Sykes who recently said that if two cars pull up and one has a stranger in it and the other has Dick Cheney, she would tell her children to go with the stranger. She obviously hasn't read SERIAL...]
The SERIAL eBook also contains a Q&A with Kilborn and Crouch, author bibliographies, and excerpts from their most recent and forthcoming works: Kilborn’s Afraid and Crouch’s Abandon.
Here's the link:
SERIAL is located under "Book Extras" in the bottom right-hand corner. Readers can download it either as a PDF file or there's also an ePub version of the book (the Sony eBook Reader format).
