Book #2 in the Solom series

After the violent death of Katy Logan’s psychopathic husband, she inherits a farm in the Appalachian Mountain town of Solom.

Determined to protect her teen daughter Jett and not surrender to fear, she builds a new life in the wake of the tragedy. However, the dark forces that drove her husband to madness still lurk in Solom, and a horseback preacher has returned from the grave with a sinister mission. Solom’s slumbering spirits are stirring, the herds of goats are restless, and the townspeople are banding together to ward off the sinister force that threatens to destroy them.

Katy and Jett discover an unexpected ally as they are drawn into the supernatural showdown, but is anyone--or anything--powerful enough to walk away from Solom’s final battleground?

I can't officially review this book because I was one of the editors on it, but I loved it so much I wanted to bring your attention to it.

Do you remember sitting around a campfire and hearing ghost stories? The Solom series is about some of those scary legends you will hear about up in the Appalachian Mountains in N.C. (probably other places too). Scott lives in the N.C. mountains and uses his knowledge of the area and people to craft authentic stories.

The Narrow Gate is about the horseback preacher who roams the mountains collecting souls. He has returned because the small town of Solom has fallen under the sickle of The Scarecrow we meet in book one. What happens when two legends want to claim the same town?

Right now you can The Scarecrow and The Narrow Gate for $.99

  1. Thanks for sharing, definitely sounds intriguing with maybe a few chills in store :)

  2. Neat. I got to read something of Scott's again some time soon. I have bought so many of them during his 99 cent sales, it's practically obscene. Looks like I need to scrounge up these books too.

    1. the horseback preacher is an awesome character.
