Valentine’s Day Blog Hop

Posted in Uncategorized on February 15, 2013 by Dean Harrison

Happy Valentines Day, everyone! In honor of this romantic holiday devoted to love, roses, and chocolates, I’m taking part in a little thing called the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop. Here’s how it works:

For one day writers and bloggers will dispense with the sappy romance and show you the bad side of love by celebrating heartbreak, love gone wrong, romantic mayhem and tragedy. To do this, I’m going to summarize how my debut novel, These Unquiet Bones, does just that.

It didn’t take me long to realize how much These Unquiet Bones reveals how cupid can either miss his target or make grave errors in judgement, and it doesn’t surprise me. One of my favorite writers in college was Thomas Hardy, who wrote of such things as failed romance and the perils of unrequieted love. I was heavily influenced by his work.

In These Unquiet Bones, you will find dysfunctional love and instances of people giving into to their darkest and most forbidden desires (a respectful nod to Faulkner), which ultimately result in heartbreak, romantic mayhem, and tragedy. There ain’t nothin’ sappy about it!

So, if you enjoy dark, disturbing tales of twisted passion and murderous obsession, then you  will surely enjoy These Unquiet Bones, a Southern Gothic, available on Amazon and Barnes &!
