SIX DAYS: Dear John

Who the hell is Kelli Owen?!!

If that question popped into your head upon seeing the Maelstrom announcement and lineup, then this post is for you! Never heard of me? Never read my work? Wondering why you should throw your money at some unknown writer’s first novel? Here are some good reasons… none of them mine:

This is one HELL of macabre, psychological mystery. Owen has a terrifying talent for pushing the reader’s buttons, one right after another, until you’re trapped in the same lightless, inescapable cloak of HORROR as the main character. One of the most suspenseful books I’ve read in long time, and a stellar debut.

~ Edward Lee, author of… a ton of great horror novels!

I’ve heard multiple people (some of whom should have known better) who genuinely believe that women can’t write horror or suspense or anything stronger than a romance or a good cook-book. I’ve never believed that. There’s far too much evidence to the contrary, but even if there weren’t evidence to disprove that asinine theory, the volume you hold right now would make a joke of the very notion.

~ James Moore, author of… tons of stuff (snippet from the novel’s introduction)

This is the best debut novel that I have read in years.  It truly is a brilliant work and I am proud that Thunderstorm gets to be a part of it.

~ Paul Goblirsch, Thunderstorm Books (snippet from acceptance letter)

There’s only ever one first novel. This is mine. I’d like to share it with you. If you like horror and/or thrillers, you’ll like it. Hell, even these guys (and several others) think you’ll like it.  And if you’ve got $125 in a cookie jar somewhere, well, I have an idea where you can spend it.

“Six Days”… coming in three days!
