Unworthy Cover

“Ask of me terrible questions, and I will tell you of terrible things.” 

At the crossroads of faith and madness stands an evil too terrifying to imagine.

Unworthy is the story of Ezra Kale, the twisted offspring of thrill killers, born into a world of depravity, bloodshed, and cannibalism. From the Dustbowl of the Great Depression to a notorious lunatic asylum, Ezra reinvents himself as a revival preacher, traveling the American South and using his calling to conceal his true nature, leaving a trail of ruination and death in his wake. At Ezra’s side is Sister Randa, a deeply damaged woman with an unthinkable past, who finds in Ezra the only person she has ever trusted, and for whom she would gladly kill.

Only Danny Bloom, a retired carnival performer with a yearning for a more fulfilling life, realizes there may be more to the self-proclaimed Savior than anyone would dare imagine and, in uncovering an unspeakable horror, finds his destiny. Unworthy is a thriller both timely and timeless, a savage journey into the darkest heart of evil perpetrated in the name of faith.

Read the novel that leading horror journalist Colin McCracken calls “Brutal, moving, and superbly imaginative…the amalgamation of Southern Gothic and stark contemporary horror was fascinating and beautiful.”


Unworthy is now available for download at BookBaby!

    Any word on this being published to a hard copy?

    • Hi John,

      Thank you for asking; one of the many pitfalls of being an independent is making all the moving parts work together. What has to happen is this: Amazon pays attention to titles that get a lot of reviews, because there are so many self-published books out there, and it’s the most dependable way of charting success. It takes twenty reviews to get a mention via Amazon with the trade papers (Publishers Weekly), and that’s when a story can really start getting traction. Traction makes stuff, like hard cover copies, start to happen.

      I know that twenty Amazon reviews sounds like nothing, and once upon a time I’d have agreed. However, it turns out that twenty is huge. If you liked the story, or even if you didn’t, please go to Amazon and leave a review. It doesn’t have to be an enormous, in-depth analysis, but rather just your honest assessment of the story. If you’ve passed the book along to a friend, ask them for me.

      Your feedback matters more than you can imagine.
