Another Realm & Sands Hit! Here's What Readers Are Saying:

"This is not to be underestimated. It is rather, a poignant, dark tale with a dose of harsh and horrific violence thrown in. It simmers at a low boil but spills over into something approaching the ghastly. It reminded me of a solid X-FILES or SUPERNATURAL episode. I enjoyed this very much."

"A very solid pilot for a potentially great series. Platt and Truant do the same excellent job as they did in Unicorn Western, immersing us in an atmospheric world (contemporary Southwest U.S. in this case) and the plight of a sympathetic but horrific monster fugitive. This thing has heart.... and claws... and bony spines popping out of its back...."

"I dove into the book and had one of those rare, great reading experiences where you're just a few pages into a book and you ALREADY know that you love it. That feeling stuck with me throughout the story and is still with me as I write this review. I like the main character, Ricardo, a lot. He's very compelling and I hope there are many more stories to follow about him. Unlike the authors' other stories that have a lot of humor in them, Cursed is a serious story. As much as I love their funny stuff, I think it's especially cool that Platt and Truant have gone into an entirely different genre and tone here - and they totally nailed it and put out a very entertaining page-turner. These guys are great storytellers."

Meet the Author

Johnny B. Truant is an author, blogger, and podcaster who, like the Ramones, was long denied induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame despite having a large cult following. He makes his online home at JohnnyBTruant.com and is the author of the Fat Vampire series and The Bialy Pimps, as well as co-authoring the Unicorn Western series with Sean Platt. Johnny, Sean Platt, and David Wright host two podcasts -- the Self Publishing Podcast and Better Off Undead -- both of which are available in the usual podcast places. Johnny is also the kind of person who writes his bio in the third person. You can connect with me on Twitter at @JohnnyBTruant and I'd totally love it if you did.

Sean Platt is co-owner of the Collective Inkwell imprint, speaker, and author, with breakout indie hits such as Yesterday's Gone, WhiteSpace, ForNevermore and Available Darkness, and traditionally published titles such as Z 2134 and Monstrous, published by Amazon's 47North. Along with David Wright, the two authors have billed themselves as "Kings of the Serial," and have developed five series in 15 months. Inspired as much by Stephen King's serialized story, "The Green Mile," as superbly scripted TV shows, such as LOST, Fringe, The Wire, Mad Men, The Killing, The Walking Dead, Carnivale, and the Battlestar Galactica reboot. Their first series, Yesterday's Gone has received over 300 5-Star reviews, and has spent time on Amazon's list of the Top 100 Best Reviewed Fiction Books. Platt and Wright have made Tuesdays "the new black," releasing a new 15,000-24,000 word "episode" of their audience pleasing series each Tuesday. Six episodes make a "season," which are then compiled into a compilation for readers who prefer to devour the season all at once (like watching your favorite series on DVD!). With their weekly release schedule of high quality serialized titles, Collective Inkwell is the HBO, Showtime, or AMC for the Kindle generation. Sean Platt is a well-respected voice within the writing community who has written hundreds of posts on writing at several of the top writing websites on the web. When not writing thousands of words each day, Sean is one-third of The Self Publishing and Better Off Undead Podcasts with co-hosts Johnny B. Truant and David Wright. He lives in Ohio with his wife, daughter, and son. Follow Sean on Twitter:
