So the trade paperback of The Devil of Echo Lake is due out on October 19th, which I love because it’s right on time for Halloween, and as a Stephen King fan, I believe in the mystical power of the number 19!
But if you want to read the book a month early, and get a signed limited edition hardcover, then check out this announcement. Hey, who knows, maybe your copy will increase in value if this writing thing continues to go well for me 🙂

The Devil of Echo Lake
by Douglas Wynne,
with Introduction by Joseph Nassise
Billy Moon would have given his life for rock ‘n’ roll stardom, but the Devil doesn’t come that cheap.
Goth rock idol Billy Moon has it all: money, fame, and a different girl in every city. But he also has a secret, one that goes all the way back to the night he almost took his own life. The night Trevor Rail, a shadowy record producer with a flair for the dark and esoteric, agreed to make him a star…for a price.
Now Billy has come to Echo Lake Studios to create the record that will make him a legend. A dark masterpiece like only Trevor Rail can fashion. But the woods of Echo Lake have a chilling past, a past that might explain the mysterious happenings in the haunted church that serves as Rail’s main studio. As the pressure mounts on Billy to fulfill Rail’s vision, it becomes clear that not everyone will survive the project.
It’s time the Devil of Echo Lake had his due, and someone will have to pay.
