T. J. Brearton's books have been Top 100 Amazon Kindle bestsellers in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada.

His stories are often told from the perspective of both the police and victims of crimes. He's talking with Pamela about SIGN OF EVIL, his latest Shannon Ames thriller.
About SIGN OF EVIL:
“Yesterday morning, I sat down to read Sign of Evil by T. J. Brearton. Only an hour, I told myself, then I’ll get to work. I should’ve known better. After all, I had devoured Into Darkness (stopping only to sleep and eat) and Road to Mercy (ditto) after similar promises to myself. Sure enough, one hour slipped away . . . then two . . . Once I started reading, I didn’t want to stop.I couldn’t stop.” -Goodreads reviewer
“Very entertaining and well written book with great characters.” -Netgalley reviewer
“T.J Brearton delivers a fast-paced psychological thriller with “Sign of Evil”. This page turner will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.” -Booksprout reviewer
“The story is fast paced and addictive and it brilliantly picks up pace as the hunt for the killer intensifies near the end. The writing is really edgy giving a dark and gritty feel to the story which are the best elements of any crime thriller.” -Atomic Books

Josh Malerman, Author Of Goblin Interviewed By Jennifer Anne Gordon And Allison Hubbard
Josh Malerman is an American author of novels and short stories. Before publishing his debut novel Bird Box with ECCO/HarperCollins, he wrote fourteen novels, never having shopped one of them.
Being the singer/songwriter of the Detroit rock band The High Strung, Malerman toured the country for six years, as the band played an average of 250 shows a year, and Malerman wrote many of the rough drafts for these novels in the passenger seat between cities on tour. He says this about those days: “I never saw the books with dollar signs in my eyes. It was no hobby, that’s for sure, it was the real thing and always has been, but I was happy, then, simply writing, and while I blindly assumed they’d be published one day, I had no idea how something like that occurred.”
As the pile of rough drafts grew, so did the questions as to what he was planning on doing with them. Malerman often says that he lived long in a “glorious delusion” in which he took part in phantom interviews, pretended to have an agent, debated with fictitious editors, and placed invisible hardcover books upon his shelves.
It wasn’t until a friend from high school, Dave Simmer, contacted him that those delusions became reality. Simmer, having worked with authors and properties in Hollywood, asked Malerman’s permission to send one of his books to some people he knew in the book business. Malerman heartily agreed and the pair sent out Goblin, a collection of novellas that all take place in the titular city of Goblin. From there, a team was assembled and Malerman suddenly found himself speaking with a real agent and debating with actual editors. He says this of the part Simmer played in his career: “There were two things at play at that point in time; one, Dave was a ghostly benefactor, golden hearted and smart, descending from the sky to help me. And two, what may sound like some luck couldn’t have become fortunate if I wasn’t armed with a dozen novels to talk shop with.”
A limited edition of Goblin is set for publication on Halloween of 2017, through Earthling Publications.
Bird Box was released in 2014 and many short stories and novellas have followed.
Black Mad Wheel (ECCO/HarperCollins) is slated for May of 2017 and Malerman now has the task of juggling between the twenty-seven already written novels and whatever new ideas come going forward.
Cemetery Dance is set to publish a hardcover limited edition of On This, the Day of the Pig in late 2017.
Del Rey (Penguin/Random House) has purchased the rights to Unbury Carol, a fantastic horror-western to be published in April of 2018.
The High Strung are working on a new album and Malerman is working on a new book, freehand this time, in an attempt to get back to how he used to write rough drafts.
VOX VOMITUS: Sometimes, it's not what goes right in the writing process, it's what goes horribly wrong. Host/Literary horror novelist Jennifer Anne Gordon with help from her co-host/author Allison Martine, chat with some of the best authors of the day.
