Book Spotlight: Bottom Feeders @_JerryRoth_ @SunburyPress #horror #supernaturalthriller

An open book with rays and orbs of light shooting from the pages

Hi, friends. Welcome to a new feature you’ll likely see on my blog once or twice a month for the foreseeable future. Sunbury Press is a traditional publishing house located not far from where I live in Central Pennsylvania. Their marketing assistant reached out to me to see if I would be interested in sharing occasional releases on my blog. I’ve asked for those books that may appeal to my followers, mostly mystery/suspense or in the supernatural vein.

Today, I’m sharing the first selection they’ve sent, Bottom Feeders by Jerry Roth. This book is tearing up the charts on Amazon. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Book Blurb:

Would you recognize the Devil if you met him?

A decaying prison hides a dark secret. Robert Deville, the youngest prison warden in the history of the state, never expected to feel a supernatural connection in a prison. After discovering a diary, Robert learns a prisoner, rumored to be the Devil, was hidden away under his feet.

Was this prisoner responsible for a fire that killed hundreds of prisoners? Did he play a part in the murder of a local family years earlier? Robert must learn the prisoner’s true identity and unravel why he hasn’t aged in decades.

Surviving a relationship with an abusive ex-husband, Jenny Deville is dealing with the pain of her past. Noticing a sudden change in her son’s behavior, and his horrifying drawings of murders, no child should ever witness, she must discover the cause.

As local children mysteriously disappear, there is little time to prove who the killer really is.

  1. Well, I’m already hooked. Heading to Amazon as soon as I post my comment.

    I think it’s great that you and a local press have teamed up, Mae. You know I’m always happy to cheer on an author, especially on his debut. And as a former Ohio resident, I’m extra glad to celebrate today. Wishing Jerry the best of luck.

    • Hi, Staci. I was familiar with Sunbury before they reached out to me, and very happy to help them out. They’re a strong traditional press. I’ve done book signings before with a few of their authors.

      So glad to hear that Jerry’s book has you hooked and you’re headed to Amazon. I also forgot you lived in Ohio for a time. Thanks for cheering on Jerry with his release!

    • It does indeed sound like a page-turner. I sense a lot of reader n ail-biting going on between the covers, LOL.
      It’s always a pleasure to help other authors. We have such a great writing community online. I know you do the same, Joan!
