5 Days and Counting…

Ordering links will go live on Monday at Thunderstorm’s site. Watch this space for the link!

The skinny:

There are hundreds of thousands of acres of unexplored rainforest and mountainous terrain in the Peruvian Andes. Civilizations have thrived and perished in complete isolation from the rest of the world, and even now we are still discovering the hidden ruins of once great societies.

An exploration party led by Hunter Gearhardt is dispatched from Pomacochas in an effort to penetrate the mysterious cloud forest. After one final satellite communication, he and his entire team vanish without a trace.

When Gearhardt’s body eventually washes up on the bank of a seasonal river with only samples of vegetation, a handful of feathers, two black- and gray-streaked rocks, and a priceless golden headdress of indeterminate origin in his possession, his grieving father launches an expedition to determine how his son died. The party must use these clues to divine Hunter’s route into the wilderness, where they find a surviving offshoot of an ancient tribe, long thought to be extinct, and something far more sinister, something that’s been able to avoid discovery for eons for one simple reason…

No one leaves the rainforest alive.

There will be two editions available:

The Hard Rain edition is limited to 190 signed, unnumbered copies.  The book is produced with the cover art printed on the boards (no dustjackets) and the trim size is 6″x9″. $35.00

The Black Voltage edition is limited to 60 signed, individually numbered copies.  The book is produced with bonded leather boards, full color dustjackets with spine art, and specialty endsheets; the trim is an over-sized 7″x10″; the signature page is full color (and includes a rare picture of the author-heh).  The interior design is also enhanced.  Also included is a new 7,000 word bonus short story, exclusive to this edition. $75.00

    Hi Michael,
    I ordered Burial Ground, and instead was shipped “Lights Out” and am so angry right now.
    I was looking forward to reading Burial Ground and was patiently awaiting it’s arrival.
    I left Paul an email, but according to his website, he won’t be checking it due to publishing orders. Should I file a claim with Paypal? I am so disappointed.

    • I totally understand your frustration. I have no doubt it was an accident. An unfortunate one, obviously, but Nate’s a good guy and an excellent writer. And Paul’s one of the good guys in the business. I have no doubt he’ll fix the issue. If he doesn’t get this resolved quickly enough for you, I could probably send you one of my copies and let Paul square it with me. In the meantime, can I send you a digital copy to tide you over?

        Aloha Michael,
        Paul sent out a copy this morning !!!!
        And yes, I knew it had to be an accident, but was so disappointed when I opened the box.

        You don’t have to send me a digital copy. The hardcover on it’s way is enough for me. Wouldn’t want to spoil the anticipation of reading and turning every page !!!

        I look forward to your next hardcover edition !!! And Thunderstorm Books is A+ on my list of publishers knowing that Paul is one of the good guys !!!

        Mahalo !!!!

    • Awesome! I’m thrilled you enjoyed it! I’m glad not to have disappointed. After the hoops you had to jump through to get it, I would have felt terrible.
