Blurb Blitz Tour & Giveaway - Northwoods Wolfman by Scott Burtness

Northwoods Wolfman
Author: Scott Burtness

Book Description:
When Dallas is recruited by an ancient order of monster hunters, he's more than happy to sign up. The self-proclaimed Hero of Trappersville did kill a bloodthirsty vampire, after all. As far as Dallas is concerned, monsters are monsters, and they have no place in Wisconsin.

Or do they? And does Dallas really get to choose which side he's on?

Book Two of the Monsters in the Midwest series.

Even though it was faint, he recognized the smell. Taking a few tentative steps, he caught it again. Fixing it in his mind, he continued forward, slipping through the underbrush, stepping over fallen logs, and crouching under low-hanging branches. As he moved, the scent became incrementally more pronounced. He was passing by an old, crooked ash tree when his nose pulled him to an abrupt stop. Leaning in, he smelled a handful of leaves sprouting from a low branch. Beneath their leafiness, he smelled sweat, deodorant, maybe even cheap aftershave?

“Randall? It’s Randall. Son of a bitch, that’s gotta be him.”

Dallas swung around in a slow circle as he searched for traces of the scent. It didn’t take long to find it on another branch further into the trees. Soon, it was like a neon trail had been lit up just for Dallas. Every branch and leaf Randall had brushed against was emblazoned with his scent. Unquestioning, Dallas followed his nose.

Fixated on following the smelly trail, he almost forgot his original intent. Fortunately, a voice coming from just past the next rise brought him to his senses.

“… not much. I cast around for a bit, but I don’t think we gotta worry about a wendigo. And that ‘squatch scat was a least a week old. No fresh tracks, so it’s probably up in the Michigan U.P., maybe even Canada by now. Damn things got territories bigger than John Wayne’s balls.”

About the Author
Scott lives in the Midwest with his wife and their boxer-pitt mix, Frank. He’s a horror, urban fantasy, and dark comedy fan, and also enjoys beer, bowling, karaoke, and rooting for the underdog. After not nearly enough consideration, he decided to write about the things he enjoys. The result was the Monsters in the Midwest series.

  1. Thank you for the chance to win :)

  2. I enjoyed the excerpt~sounds like a fun read! Thank you for sharing!

  3. What would you say are the main advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing against being published or the other way around?

    1. For me, it came down to how I wanted to spend my time- Researching publishers, waiting for submission windows to open, waiting for responses to queries, etc... or getting my book to readers.

      I'm not really the patient type, so I went indie :-)

  4. Great excerpt! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. Thanks CBY for hosting and thanks everyone for the comments! I hope you enjoy the Monsters in the Midwest series :-)

  6. This looks fun to read and I like that it's set in the midwest...I live in Iowa and have lived in Wisconsin.

    1. I'm a Minnesotan, but spent a lot of summers as a kid/teen in western WI, and spent a lot of time in Madison and Milwaukee horsing around when I lived in Chicago. When I started the series, I loved the idea of monsters in a much less glamorous place. There are so many vampires and werewolves living in NYC, LA, New Orleans... I figured it was time for a few to find their way to a place a little further off the beaten path :-)
