Good morning all.
Amazon user Smitty Jones left the following 4-star review for Winston & Baum and the 7 Mummies of Sekhmet.
“This is the third novel by this author I have read, and the second in this series. Each book has been an improvement over the previous. My biggest complaint with the last volume was that all the characters sounded the same, in this book it was largely remedied, with the majority having unique voices. Action sequences were written nicely, for the most part it was easy to tell what was going on. As this is an indie book their are grammar issues but my enjoyment of the book was not influenced but them.”

I released my latest short story Cabin for Rent at the end of last month. Below is the first review on Amazon.com for the story. Amazon user Ursula K. Raphael said the following in her 5-star review:
“Cabin For Rent by Seth Tucker features a creature not often portrayed in the horror genre. Tucker takes a risk by writing the story as a one-sided conversation, but the unusual POV and the accompanying flashbacks create the perfect level of suspense. The author has definitely added something captivating to the folklore of cursed cabins.”
Thanks for the review Ursula. To pick up your copy of Cabin for Rent click on the cover image below.
Hey, I thought I’d start off the week with a book recommendation. This is still very much a Monster Monday, and the monster of the recommended book clearly reflects that.
Owl Goingback’s first novel, Crota, was a Bram Stoker award-winning book. It has everything that you would want in a monster-driven horror novel: compelling characters, a great monster, an interesting backstory, and a setting that lends to the atmosphere. I’ve read all of this authors books, and they are all good, but Crota has always been my favorite with its blend of modern horror and Native American myth. I suspect many of you will quickly fall in love with this book as well.

Winston & Baum and the Trials of the Baba Yaga is now live and available for your Kindle, with paperback versions expected to be available by the end of next week. You can click on the cover below to pick up your digital copy.
You can actually come out and see me this weekend at Mobicon in Mobile, Alabama. While I won’t have copies of book 4, I will have copies of the first three books in the Winston & Baum steampunk adventure series, as well as copies of Friedkin’s Curse. My wife and cover artist will also be selling copies of her prints and original 3d sculptures. You can view more of her work here. If you are looking for something to do this Memorial Day weekend, swing by and say hey and pick up a book or some art.
I am also currently working on the next two Winston & Baum related projects. The first is a collection of short stories featuring other exterminators of the strange and weird that have been introduced in the main Winston & Baum series, , as well as an early adventure of Dan and Lee’s. I decided to do this after I had so much fun writing Brackish’s short story for Winston & Baum and the Disk of Night. The other project is the fifth Winston & Baum novel, which will be unlike any of the other stories and not be based on regional folklore or mythology. It’s definitely going to be interesting.
That’s all from me for right now, but keep checking back for more information on where I’ll be and what I’m working on.

Curious about what this book is about? Read the synopsis below.
“As the war between Britain and Prussia continues to rage on, Baba Yaga, the legendary witch of Prussia, takes a firm stand against the foreign army with all of her supernatural allies. Dan and Lee are pulled apart as Lee is drafted into a special unit of hunters being sent to deal with the monstrous menace. With his ship lost behind enemy lines and most of his unit captured, Lee and the Scottish hunter, Brogan, must attempt to make their way back towards friendly territory, but it won’t be an easy task as the Baba Yaga’s forces hound their every step.
When word that Lee is missing reaches home, Dan and Brackish set out on a dangerous mission to save their friend. Following Lee’s path, the two hunters soon learn that the dangers their friend faces are even greater than they imagined. As they race through the Prussian countryside, Dan and Brackish try to reach Lee before the Baba Yaga can get him in her clutches.
As they fight to survive, can the exterminators of the strange and weird endure the trials of the Baba Yaga?”
