Sneak Peek – Clusters Book 2 Teaser

TEASER for the new CLUSTERS book.

 

CHAPTER ONE

 

“Sixty-one people died by the hands of a serial killer.”

 

Smoke whirled around the tip of Joe’s cigarette as if it were trying to suck itself back in. The air in the room was stale and had a distinct wet odor to it, evident of the layer of toxic black mold that clung to the wood behind the wallpapered walls.

 

“And?” Charles folded his arms in front of his chest.

 

“We’re going to investigate.” Joe puffed on his cigarette, taking in a long drawn hit as if it were his last. When he blew out the smoke, it came out of his nostrils making him look like a pathetic fat bellied dragon.

 

“Are you talking about England?”

 

“Yuuup,” he said.

 

“Under what jurisdication?”

 

“We were called in by MI6.”

 

“The SIS?” Charles asked. “What do they need us for?”

 

“They think there’s a connection,” Joe said, sighing heavily.

 

“You just said they were killed by the hands of a serial killer.”

 

“Yuup.”

 

Charles pushed his chair back and slapped his palms against his knees. “You lost me.” Maps with red circles lined the pin board behind Charles’ head and he leaned back, his hair barely touching the creased and dusty maps. When he was recruited by the Federal Bureau of Investigation he imagined a nicer office and a more formidable boss. Instead, he got someone who read one too many Sherlock Holmes novels and an office to match, in the least flattering way.

 

“They think there’s a connection,” Joe repeated.

 

“So it’s not a closed case?”

 

“It’s not a closed case.”

 

 

Location for New CLUSTERS Book Announcement

I’m leaving the country.

Ok, I’m not – but Charlie (Charles) Sutton is.

True to Clusters, it’ll be based on true cases and this time inspired by the 61 deaths at Manchester Canal Street in England. 

And true to Clusters, the inspiration from Paulides is still there. As his investigations continue, the strangeness grows.

If you think you knew where Clusters was going, then you’re in for a new surprise because there are new patterns and new ideas behind the cases of the missing.

We’re not out of the woods yet… or maybe we are.

What’s different in this book? 

Like Clusters: Case of the Missing – This book will be able to stand alone. However, we’re going to be moving into urban areas now as cases of the missing is no longer contained in our national forests.
In a way, this will hit a lot closer to home for many of us.

When will it be released? We’re looking at the end of 2016 at the earliest.

Will we see some of the same characters? The Sheriff will have a cameo, but this one follows Charles, who we met in Clusters: Case of the Missing.

Do we have a title? There’s a working title, either CLUSTERS: Nephesh or Clusters: Canal Street. What do you guys think?

Will there be more books? I have no idea. When I started out with Clusters: Case of the Missing, it was supposed to be one and done. The story will be done when it tells me it’s done.

Secret CLUSTERS Chapter (SPOILER ALERT) – and RP Game Announcements

You heard about it on my fan page! There’s a secret CLUSTERS chapter out there now. If you want to get your hands on it, then make sure to check out RPGlory’s fan page for an update on their indiegogo campaign.

The chapter is Lorraine’s shortly after Ethan Franco visits her and her last moments. tumblr_mikethDo8v1s5sgazo1_500

TEASER:

She cocked the gun, the double clicking sound of the shotgun shell lodging into the smoothborne barrel of the gun loud enough that an intruder would hear it – the reason she chose a shotgun in the first place. She wasn’t taking any chances. After all, she knew more than anyone that an alarm system and a watchdog didn’t provide the safety and comfort one would think.

Her heart hurt with the memory of her lost nephew – vanished only two feet from where she stood now.

Her breathing was shallow as she gripped the gun tightly between her two hands. It was a monster compared to her small frame. Yet, only provided a small measure of reassurance. Seven years earlier, she would’ve trusted the police, the gun, the sound of the alarm system on her home being set – but today, today she felt like she were in an all consuming void waiting to take her away too…

Kenny Veach – The Mysterious Missing Cave on YouTube

David Paulides shared about the cave video on Coast to Coast AM (July 20th, 2015) where Kenny Veach is looking for this cave and has been missing since. I encourage you to listen to the Paulides interview if you haven’t. I’ve read every single one of his Missing 411 books as research for my book, CLUSTERS, and even the books he recommended. To this day, I’m baffled. I am so happy Paulides has dedicated so much to helping the missing and their families.

A little background – Veach is searching for a cave he apparently had encountered on a hike previously that had left him feeling creeped out. When you watch the video you’ll see he’s a really level headed guy and has his own theory as to what creeped him out.

ViralNova covered some info on his disappearance including some screen prints of his comments. I recommend watching the video first before reading the article here.

You’ll see in the comments, Veach’s girlfriend comments:  Sheryon Pilgrim 7 months ago I didn’t realize until today that there were comments on this hiking video. I am Kenny’s girlfriend that he mentioned in the video. We went on many many wonderful hikes together in our Nevada desert. Many of the hikes were 8 or 9 hrs long and we always took beautiful pictures. Kenny left for an over night hike in this same area on Monday Nov 10th. Today is Dec 10th. He did not return when he was supposed to and I called missing persons. They have been searching for him and have not found him. I did not want to leave his wonderful video and this site just hanging and having you wonder why he has not responded. jameslacey01…..Thank you for suggesting the GPS. I talked with him before about using GPS for safety reasons. He just never seam to want to use one. He loved just being out in the desert and just finding his own way. I am aching with missing his physical presence. Please encourage all the solo hikers you know to use a GPS
