About my novel "Town & Train"

Want to read a  new book this fall? Here it isthe official back cover blurb about my horror novel, "Town & Train", forthcoming from Lethe Press on November 8, 2014. Many thanks to my publisher Steve Berman for all he has done for me, and many other new writers breaking into the business.
In a small Ontario town, seventeen-year-old John Daniel wakes by the railroad tracks with no recollection of how he got there. Something called him from his bed. Officer David Forester, a recent transfer from Toronto, struggles to fit into the local police force, despite resistance from established circles. Both soon suspect a more pervasive and menacing collusion occurring in town when an antique steam train arrives late in the night. At the phantasmal engine, a conductor promises the desperate locals escape from their town dying with so many closed stores and shattered dreams--but there is no denying what the stranger really brings is the stuff of nightmares”.
