RED SKY, my debut novel, is now available for pre-order. There’s no money required at reservation time, and you should have plenty of time to gather the $60 needed.Â This one’s a limited edition with a short run, so copies may be gone very quickly.
When a bank job goes horrifically wrong, career criminal Danny Black leads his crew from El Paso into the deserts of New Mexico in a desperate bid for escape. With a psychopath and a hostage keeping a gutshot redneck company in the back seat, Denny soon finds himself with no choice but to hole up in an abandoned factory, the former home of Red Sky Manufacturing.
Surrounded by nothing and no one, Danny thinks he may have finally found some breathing room, a chance to think and to plan. Danny and his crew aren’t the only living things in Red Sky, though. Something waits in the abandoned factory’s shadows, something horrible and violent. Something hungry.
And when the sun drops, it will feast.
“Red Sky starts out as a fun, fast thrillerâ€”but then reality makes a bootlegger turn and the horror begins. This book will take you hostage, and won’t let you go.”
â€” David Wellington, author of Monster Island, 13 Bullets, and Frostbite
“Nate Southard’s lean prose delivers enough action for three creature features.”
â€” Norman Patridge, author of Dark Harvest and Lesser Demons
“Nate Southard writes with the no-nonsense intensity and the confident swagger of a bare-knuckle boxer.”
â€” Christopher Golden, author of The Myth Hunters and Wildwood Road
