Hot Off the Shelf: The Vine That Ate the South by JD Wilkes (part 2)
The Vine That Ate the South: a novel so nice I reviewed it twice.
Seriously. I've been telling everyone who will listen about it for months, so when I had the opportunity to write about it for two different magazines, I had plenty of good things to say.
Real quick, here's what this gem of a book is about, according to Goodreads:
In a forgotten corner of western Kentucky lies a haunted forest referred to locally as "The Deadening," where vampire cults roam wild and time is immaterial. Our protagonist and his accomplice—the one and only Carver Canute—set out down the Old Spur Line in search of the legendary Kudzu House, where an old couple is purported to have been swallowed whole by a hungry vine. Their quest leads them face to face with albino panthers, Great Dane-riding girls, protective property owners, and just about every American folk-demon ever, while forcing the protagonist to finally take stock of his relationship with his father and the man's mysterious disappearance.
As a writer who hustles hard at this freelance thing, I'd appreciate it if you'd give either (or both!) reviews a read and share them on Facebook and Twitter. That lets PANK and Deep South know that you like my work, which increases my chances of getting more pitches accepted in the future. I'd be greatly appreciative!
And if you get a copy of The Vine That Ate the South, let me know what you think of it! :)
