My new book is out

Post by MatthewWRossi » Thu Jun 08, 2017 5:55 pm

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072MP36RY/re ... 964&sr=1-1

Sorry the paperback edition isn't available yet. As soon as it is I'll put a link in here.

Faceless is a love letter to, and a reaction to, the heavy influence H.P. Lovecraft has had on my life, my work, and my home state. Being a writer of weird fiction from Rhode Island, Lovecraft looms large - he's essentially to me what Faulkner was to Flannery O'Connor or Tolkien was to like two generations of fantasy writers. Faceless isn't a pure paean of praise, though, because I admit Lovecraft and many of his imitators had some significant faults. Racism, fear of the other, a tendency to look backwards and be reactionary. (This isn't to imply my own writing doesn't have faults. Of course it does.) Still, I think if you like Cthulhu Mythos stories, action adventure, wild romance or just pain weird, this book has something for you. I encourage, nay, humbly request you pick up a copy, maybe write a review if you're moved to. (Both Nameless and Heartless, the previous two volumes in the series, were generally full of positive reviews.)

And if you're worried, I've been told by my beta readers that you don't need to have read the first two to understand this book. I mean, I do encourage you to do exactly that, but you don't have to.

The axe actually plays a role in the story, so if you like axes, there's that too.

Gonna drop this here for people who prefer paper to ebook - https://twitter.com/MatthewWRossi/statu ... 3563924481 - I rounded up all three of the Amazon Print on Demand version of the series. You can also get the entire ebook run collected here - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071J ... s_rw_dp_sw

I figure you might have missed the book coming out last Thursday, but it's a new week and a new book so there you go.

It is a wonderful book. I really enjoy all your characters so much.
I'm rereading it so I can hopefully post a better more coherent review on amazon. But I wanted you to know I love it.

Thank you, that's most appreciated. And the Amazon review would be very helpful.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I've been kind of frazzled.
