About the eBook:
Jason has a gift for writing — and his talent has its rewards. His first letter results in free meals at a fast-food chain; another yields passes to an amusement park.
As he goes through life, writing letters makes things go his way — opening doors to colleges, connecting him with the President — and Jason feels the might of his own power.
But there's a dark side to his machinations — and someone knows it.
Threatening letters in the mail fuel his nightmares... until opportunity knocks and a company hires Jason to write for them.
But this "dream job" is about to consume his mind — and reach for his very soul.
Bentley Little was born in Arizona a month after his mother attended the world premiere of Psycho. He received his BA in Communications and MA in English and Comparative Literature at California State University Fullerton. His Master's thesis was the novel The Revelation, which was later published and won the Bram Stoker Award in 1991. Since then, he has written many more novels and his work has been translated into seven different languages. Several of his novels have been optioned for film.
His work has appeared in many issues of Cemetery Dance magazine, including Cemetery Dance #64, which was the Bentley Little Special Issue and featured an original interview with him and two of his brand new short stories.
When asked in that issue why he writes horror, he answered: "I write horror because I have to. That's the way my mind works. Those are the ideas that come to me. I've never felt limited by the genre. How could I? Horror fiction offers an author the broadest possible canvas on which to work. I have all of the real-world subjects at my disposal that a mainstream writer does—plus the infinite realm of the supernatural. Creatively, there's nothing else that comes close to this sort of scope, which is why there is nothing I would rather be than a horror writer."
