This breakout novel is disturbing, grizzly, and what's trending in horror fiction. Written by a Michigan native, the story centers around a decades old Michigan urban legend of a vengeful, malevolent witch who makes an underhanded deal with the most notably hated demon known to man. The book was motivated by personal experiences and stories handed down of the victims who put the frightening legend to the test, feeling the hair on the back of their necks stand up when they realized they were the hunted. They would never be the same...if they survived at all. It takes a paranormal showdown to bring the CRONE down, the toll costly for all involved.

The goal - to get Stephen King to read even one page of the novel. It would be a tremendous honor and dream come true for the author, Maria Mayer. She names Mr. King in her Acknowledgements as one of her greatest influences, and has been recently dubbed as the female version of the one and only Stephen King.

To answer your survey question, no I don't think that will make a difference as far as getting Steve to read your book. His TBR pile for blurbs is overflowing and the slush pile we have at the office has more books than he'll ever get to so chances are pretty slim. Not impossible, but extremely slim.
