FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
[Austin, TX, October 23] - Released today, Secrets Gnaw at the Flesh takes the haunted house formula and turns it upside down.
A family of paranormal experts have kept ghosts and worse from escaping their haunted estate for generations. A young man who’s marrying in has to decide if that life is worth it for the woman he loves, but by the time he chooses, it might be too late to leave. Signs are showing a historically malevolent haunting approaches, secrets start to divide the tight-knit family, and a rift is opening that will seal them all in for a few months or until every family member lays dead.
Early reviews on Goodreads rate the novel 4.5 stars. Author C.J. Weiss says, "I was bored by haunted house novels with hapless protagonists who have no business surviving past night one. I took the idea of a family of supernatural experts, built a unique world around their clandestine existence, and added dangers beyond typical ghosts - ones that would pose a real threat to their lives."
