Bestselling author Brett Battles is that kid back in 6th grade who convinces his teacher that, as an assignment, everyone should write a short story that is at least 10 pages long. He received an A- on his project, while another student (name withheld) received an A+. Brett's not bitter about this, nor does he ever think about the incident. Mostly. Since that unfortunate injustice, Brett has written over thirty-five novels, a few novellas, and several short stories, and is a USA Today bestselling author (take that unnamed 6th grade classmate!). He has been nominated for the prestigious Barry Award three times, losing once to some hack named Robert Crais ;), and winning for Best Thriller in 2009, for his novel The Deceived. The majority of his books, such as his Jonathan Quinn series, are spy and mystery thrillers. But he does dabble in sci-fi thrillers now and then, with the likes of his Project Eden series, his time bending Rewinder series, and his first contact novel Mine. He's also the coauthor, with Robert Gregory Browne, of the Alexandra Poe series.

It was great to have Bestselling Author Riley Sager on the show to talk about his latest book "Home Before Dark." Riley has some great news to share and so much more, check it out. Riley Sager is the pseudonym of a former journalist, editor and graphic designer. Now a full-time writer, Riley is the author of FINAL GIRLS, an international bestseller that's been published in 25 languages, and the New York Times bestsellers THE LAST TIME I LIED and LOCK EVERY DOOR. His latest book, HOME BEFORE DARK, is available now. What was it like? Living in that house. Maggie Holt is used to such questions. Twenty-five years ago, she and her parents, Ewan and Jess, moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in the Vermont woods. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal Ewan later recounted in a nonfiction book called House of Horrors. His tale of ghostly happenings and encounters with malevolent spirits became a worldwide phenomenon, rivaling The Amityville Horror in popularity?and skepticism. Today, Maggie is a restorer of old homes and too young to remember any of the events mentioned in her father's book. But she also doesn't believe a word of it. Ghosts, after all, don't exist. When Maggie inherits Baneberry Hall after her father's death, she returns to renovate the place to prepare it for sale. But her homecoming is anything but warm. People from the past, chronicled in House of Horrors, lurk in the shadows. And locals aren't thrilled that their small town has been made infamous thanks to Maggie's father. Even more unnerving is Baneberry Hall itself?a place filled with relics from another era that hint at a history of dark deeds. As Maggie experiences strange occurrences straight out of her father's book, she starts to believe that what he wrote was more fact than fiction. Alternating between Maggie's uneasy homecoming and chapters from her father's book, Home Before Dark is the story of a house with long-buried secrets and a woman's quest to uncover them?even if the truth is far more terrifying than any haunting.

It's always a treat to bring on a debut author. To experience the journey with them for the first time is really quite cool. Debut author Leslie Lutz penned a great debut novel "Fractured Tide", so when we had the chance to talk to her, we jumped. Here is Leslie in her own words: I started writing FRACTURED TIDE while I was taking an advanced open water scuba class out in Clearsprings Lake near Dallas. Our group dove in this uberscary area of the lake called The Silo, which is not much more than a sixty-foot-deep muddy sinkhole where light can't reach. It was terrifying. After that, I got the chance to dive off the coast of Key Largo on this monster wreck called the Speigel Grove. This time I got clear water, coral-encrusted railings, and schools of snapper. That wreck is beautiful, but it's also a little creepy down there. The 90-foot depth keeps the place in perpetual twilight, and the empty hallways of the ship feel haunted. Those experiences got inside my head, and over the last three years, I wrote a book. For the record, there are no recorded sightings of sea monsters on the Speigel Grove (yet). My short fiction and poetry has been published in several journals, including Orca Literary Journal, Kaaterskill Basin Literary Journal, Typishly, The Lyric, and Raintown Review. I won the 2018 Frisco First Chapter Contest for FRACTURED TIDE, which gave me enough confidence to pitch the novel to Amy Bishop, an agent with Dystel, Goderich, and Bourret. She said yes, and I've been celebrating ever since.
