With that in mind, I wanted to say a few things about the book: what it is, how it's doing, where you can get it, and where we're going from here!
What is it
It’s been called the Hogwarts of horror. It’s been described as Hunger Games meets Halloween. Honored as BookoftheDay.Org’s Halloween 2015 selection, Rabbit in Red has been netting dozens of positive reviews.
The book is the first in a horror trilogy. Nineteen horror-loving teens are invited to a contest of a lifetime by eccentric horror producer, Jay “JB” Bell. The teens have a chance to win cash and become a part of the Hollywood industry they love, but only if they can complete a variety of twisted games. Life imitates art in JB’s Rabbit in Red studios, and soon teens go missing. Who will survive?
How about a live-action trailer?
How's it doing
I get asked a lot about how many books I've sold and things like that. Out of respect for my publishing team and fellow authors, I don't like to say publicly, but it's broken some records and has gained lots of good reviews. We're up to 40 positive reviews on Amazon, almost 30 on Goodreads, and a few great ones on Barnes and Noble, too.
It's been featured on the front page of the Peoria Journal Star's entertainment section, has had TV and radio coverage, and lots of other great stories. You can view those here.
Enter the Rabbit
What I'm most proud of are the things I didn't directly create but inspired, including this incredible song by Terribly Happy called "Enter the Rabbit," and the art work below from friends, too.

Where can you get it
As of the time of this post, you can get it online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, iTunes, and more.
And ANY BOOKSTORE in the world! Just go to your favorite bookseller and ask if they have a copy of Rabbit in Red. If they don't ask them to order it!
I'm working hard on the 2nd book, Burn the Rabbit. You can learn all about that in this blog post here.

I'm also working on a different book, and I'd love to have a project to turn Rabbit in Red into a graphic novel.
Rabbit in Red has also been sent to film/TV agents, and you just never know what or when something else may happen!
