Back to the train…Get to know the blogger – that’s me!
3 sentences about myself: My name is Joe DeRouen, and I’m the author of the Small Things trilogy. Small Things, the first book in the trilogy, is a top five Amazon best seller. If you enjoy modern fantasy interspersed with horror, check out Small Things and its sequel Threads!
Elevator Speech: Provide 2 sentences to ‘SELL’ your book(s).
Small Things (Small Things, book 1) – Carthage, Illinois, 1975. It’s a hot June morning in a small Midwestern town when fifteen-year-old Shawn Spencer arrives at the church for his best friend Tanner’s funeral. Though his drowning was officially ruled an accident, Tanner’s sister Jenny swears she saw something rise up from the Carthage Lake to pull the struggling teenager beneath the surface.Shawn doesn’t believe in monsters… but he will…
Threads (Small Things, book 2) – History is changing around nineteen-year-old Ben Spencer, and he’s powerless to stop it. His sister has disappeared, his family thinks he’s schizophrenic, and, worse yet, the girl he’s madly in love with won’t give him the time of day. Enter the mysterious Michael, who, years earlier, helped Ben’s parents defeat a powerful sorcerer bent on destroying them and reclaiming a relic stolen from him years before. With Michael’s help, Ben will travel back in time, to 1977, and attempt to set the past straight. But will he undo himself and the woman he loves in the process?
The first three words I would use to describe myself are: Creative, goofy, intelligent
I am currently working on this project: I’m working on several things at once, including a book of short stories that will contain a Small Things novella that takes place between the first two books. Stay tuned!
My favorite thing about Book Review Depot / Authors’ Cave… Making new friends and learning more about the creative process and skills of all these wonderful authors.
Enough about me…here are 3 more books from Authors’ Cave you might enjoy!
