BLACK DAWN - The last quote of the day!

Counting down ...BLACK DAWN is coming to the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand on May 1! Check out the preorder links on your local independent bookstore, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Walmart, Waterstones UK, WH Smith UK, Whitcoulls New Zealand ... and many more fine retailers.

Since the book launches tomorrow, here is the last quote ... and it's a humdinger, as we say in the Southern US. It's from Shane's POV. And it's a bit of ... a dream sequence, maybe? Or not? I CANNOT SAY. Hmmmm!


“I’m glad you’re happy,” my father said. “You deserve to be. You’ve made me proud, Shane.”

I was silent for a moment, struggling with that. He didn’t blink. There were tears running down his cheeks, which was weird, because my dad didn’t cry, never had, not even when my sister Alyssa died.

It was as if his face was melting.

I struggled to keep it together. “You’re dead, Dad. And you were never like this.”

“Like what?”

“A real human being,” I said. “You were never proud of me, or at least you never said it. You always wanted more. I was never good enough for you, even before I killed Alyssa.”

“You didn’t kill her.”

“I should have saved her. Same thing. Didn’t you tell me that a million times?”

The tears were ice, and the ice was melting. “I’m sorry if I said that. I didn’t mean it, Shane. I’ve always been proud of you.”
