Beneath by Robin Heggelund Hansen (VNBtM, Guest Post and GIVEAWAY)




I have the pleasure of a guest post from author Robin Heggelund Hansen, with his musings on Eldritch City.


The World of Eldritch City

It is a wondrous place, this eldritch city. Here anything can happen to anyone, and by that I mean anything. Things you could only have imagined in your wildest dreams, or your wildest nightmares. For some it is a place of opportunity. For others it can be a place of perdition. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing which before you’ve gone there yourself. By the time you know your fate, there is no going back.

There have currently been released two stories in my series of Eldritch City shorts. Both have focused on some of the city’s strange occurrences, which can be fun in the right circumstances. But what about the place’s history? What is it that makes Eldritch City the place it is?

In my next installment, I will try to shed some light over the history of the place. Of those who lived there even before it became a city. The natives, who are surrounded by as much myth and mystery as the place itself. And just like Eldritch City, the rumours that has been spread about these people may very well be true.

Beneath

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Nine years have passed since the tragic and mysterious deaths of Mr. Phillips and his daughter. A new clue surfaces, one which the lead investigator will follow to the brink of insanity.

 EXCERPT

To whoever reads this: I feel that I must apologize if what you find on these pieces of paper appears to be nothing more than a collection of near-indecipherable words. I can assure you that I have tried everything I can think of, and yet I cannot keep my hands from trembling. This, however, is only a symptom of my much greater problems.

I cannot eat, or sleep, or even close my eyes for longer than the briefest of moments. I feel as if I’m about to lose my mind, but I’m clear enough to realize that I have to get this story off my chest, before it consumes whatever sanity I have left. Unfortunately, the only recipient I can trust with a story as bizarre and horrible as this are the same pieces of paper upon which these words are written.

    1. I think a good cover helps make the book look more professional, which is really important when you are a new and self-published author like me. I'm not sure if it is more important than good reviews or a good synopsis though. It really is all about the total package.

    2. I tend to be word-oriented, Mai, so I don't pay as much attention to covers, but I have to admit that some of them are very striking, like this one. Thank you for taking the time to visit and ask a question.
