A quiet little mountain town is hiding a big problem. When the townsfolk of Raven's Peak start acting crazy, Abigail Dressler is called upon to find out what is happening. She uncovers a demonic threat unlike any she's ever faced and finds herself in a fight just to stay alive.
She rescues Haatim Arison from a terrifying fate and discovers that he has a family legacy in the supernatural that he knows nothing about. Now she's forced to protect him, which is easy, and also trust him if she wants to save the townsfolk of Raven's Peak. Trust, however, is considerably more difficult for someone who grew up living on the knife's edge of danger.
Can they discover the cause of the town's insanity and put a stop to it before it is too late?

About the Author:
Lincoln Cole is a Columbus-based author who enjoys traveling and has visited many different parts of the world, including Australia and Cambodia, but always returns home to his pugamonster and wife. His love for writing was kindled at an early age through the works of Isaac Asimov and Stephen King and he enjoys telling stories to anyone who will listen.
I honestly don’t know, and it’s more of a slow-building thing for me than suddenly having an idea. I get ideas for scenes I would like to write and characters I would like to create, and I usually just start writing and seeing where it goes.
2. Do you have a dream cast for your book?
I have actually changed my mind about Abigail as a lead. Zoe Saldana would be great for it, but I think my new preference would be Nathalie Emmanuel. I think she would be perfect and bring the right personality to the role. For Haatim I still think Amir Arison would be great, but he might not be the perfect counterpart of Nathalie. Honestly, my dream would be for the book to be cast at all and get a movie adaptation.
3. How do you handle writer’s block?
I just force myself to write something. A lot of time writer’s block is fear of not being able to put the right words down or to mess up a scene I have planned in my head, so if I just force myself to write a scene, even if I just rush it, then I at least have something to work with in rewriting. A lot of the time I also find out that it’s better than I anticipated, so it’s easier to just force myself to get it on paper.
4. What inspired you to write this book?
I wanted to write an angels and demons thriller, and I wanted to write the opening scene with Arthur. But, I didn’t see Arthur as the main character of the book, because I really wanted to write Abigail. My inspiration was having a lot of disparate ideas floating around in my head and really wanting to develop them into a strong and concise story.
5.What’s the hardest part of being an author?
The fact that you have to do everything on your own. The days of writing a book and having other people market, edit, and handle day-to-day activities for you no longer exist, if they ever did. You’re expected to handle so many things (being your own agent, your own editor, your own marketer, your own social media person, public speaking) and its tough learning all of these things to do them well and still find time to write. But, when things work out well, it’s completely worth it.
