I'm a writer of contemporary fantasy and horror. My First solo book, "Just North of Nowhere," is a set in a small town in the upper Midwest. Check it out on Amazon. And...have a look at the book's promotional video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TR-HtPSnwGA
From the Publisher:
"Some really small towns are Siren and Flasher. Crampback, Bumhip and Wetwhistle are others. Those places are to the west. Eastward, you've got Hog Wallow, Smokey's Hole, Blue Ball, Ong's Hat. A half-mile outside Bluffton there's Engine Warm. Now, Engine Warm's just a notion: no people at all. Compared to Engine Warm, Bluffton's not in the same game for small but it's not much."
So begins "Just North of Nowhere," Lawrence Santoro's lyrical exploration of the fantastical, magical, bright and dark town of Bluffton (Pop. 671) in the "Driftless Zone" of the upper Midwest. Bluffton is a town filled with the strange, the wondrous and the downright dangerous: A house that prowls and preys on the curious, a blind man who sees a century ago; a time shifting librarian who wants to rebuild the world, just because she can! The 23 chapters of "Just North of Nowhere," comprise what Ray Bradbury might have called an "accidental" novel and includes Santoro's Bram Stoker Nominated horror phantasmagoria, "God Screamed and Screamed, Then I Ate Him."
