New Soren Chase book just released! Four men trapped in a cabin -- and a monster hunting them. You won't believe how this novel ends!

It’s finally here! I’m very excited to announce the publication of The Woman in the White Mask, the third full-length novel in the Soren Chase series. If you’ve read the first two books (or even any of the novellas), this is the novel you’ve been waiting for. You’ll finally learn what really happened eight years ago when Soren and his three friends were attacked by a supernatural being.

The attack left Soren scarred and under suspicion for murder. Since then, he’s become a paranormal investigator. It also left him with a huge hole in his memory about exactly what transpired that night. Why did the mysterious pretender—a creature that can take the form of anyone—target Soren’s best friend, John Townes? Was it just hunting for sport or did it have a more nefarious agenda? And, more importantly, what the hell happened? This is the novel that tells you.

As one early reviewer put it: “In The Woman in the White Mask, I finally got the payoff that I’ve been waiting for since I first read Closed at Dark. The Soren Chase series is a mystery at the core. What actually happened years ago, when Soren and his best friends were in a cabin? In all the Soren Chase novels to this point, the answer has always been danced around. I’d receive glimpses, impressions, but now, in the latest novel, Rob Blackwell finally answers the questions.”

I’ve enjoyed teasing out this mystery over three novels and two novellas, but now it’s time to spill the beans.

Following is the official description of The Woman in the White Mask:

Eight years ago, Soren Chase was attacked by a vicious supernatural creature that murdered his friends and stole his memory. Now a mysterious woman in a white mask is forcing him to relive that night--as both a victim and the killer.

Her arrival couldn't come at a worse time. Someone is raising demons and setting them loose, and only Soren can stop them. But as the supernatural assaults grow more frequent, his visions of the past start to take an alarming toll. It's a grim race to see which might kill him first.

The Woman in the White Mask is the third novel in the highly-rated Soren Chase series, which mixes urban fantasy, mystery and suspense. Find out why readers are hailing it as a book with "just the right mix of thrills, action, Maltese Falcon Bogart, strong plot, characters and excellent writing." 

So what are you waiting for? Go buy the book today! And if you’re looking to catch up on The Forest of Forever or The Pretender—which I recommend before taking the dive here, they will be on sale for $1 each starting on Wednesday. That means you can get the entire series for just $6! If you’ve already read the books, please leave a review and spread the word to others. The future of Soren Chase depends on you!

New Year, new look for The Forest of Forever. Check out the brand new cover!

To help usher in the new year, I’m happy to announce that The Forest of Forever has a brand new cover!
I’m a bit nervous about showing it to you, since I loved the previous cover. But after feedback over the past year and a half since its release, I’ve been told time and again that the cover didn’t have the same “look” as other novels in the urban fantasy genre.
Over time, I started to wonder if the cover was preventing readers who might be exactly the type to enjoy it from ever noticing it in the first place. So a few months ago, I ordered a new cover from a different designer.
This is an experiment. If this cover performs better, you’ll see all new covers for the Soren Chase novels. If it doesn’t make a difference or sales plummet, you may see the old cover back. But one of the exciting things about publishing these days is that you can try new things, and Kindle Press has been kind enough to let me attempt this.
You can see the new cover below. Let me know what you think! I know some of you may have an attachment to the old cover—I certainly do—but I hope you’ll like this one.
I’ll be back with more news VERY soon about the next book in the Soren Chase series! Until then, I hope you have a happy New Year!
