Two Reasons To Celebrate With Ben Larkin Today

Today we're not only celebrating release day for Ben Larkin's PILLAR'S FALL, but also the recent news that Ben's novel, THE HOLLOWS - Book One, THE TICKING is a finalist in the prestigious 2011 EPIC's eBook Awards competition!

EPPIE Award winning author Ben Larkin was born in Fort Worth, Texas, but has also lived in Arizona and New Mexico. He now resides back in Fort Worth with his wife and children. His first novel, PIT STOP won an EPPIE in 2009 for Horror.



PILLAR'S FALL - The Legend of Pillar: Book One by Ben Larken

Detective Thomas Pillar had no premonitions of the day ahead. He didn’t know he was about to clash with a sadistic lunatic on Railston's only suspension bridge. In one gut-wrenching moment, Pillar was forced to make a life-or-death choice that left the entire city shaken and set a madman's plan into motion.

Now, months later, it's starting again . . .

This time, Pillar's investigating a string of rage-filled murders, and all the clues point to the most unlikely of suspects - a twelve-year-old named Seth Morrissey. The child seems nice, if a bit lonely, but something malevolent and demonic hides beneath his surface. While Pillar searches for answers, the thing inside Seth prepares for a showdown that will rip Pillar's life to shreds and pave the way the hell on earth.

As the body count rises and Pillar's marriage begins to unravel, he races against time to stop the force that's pulling all the strings. But how do you destroy the demon without killing the innocent child? This is Pillar's dilemma. This is Pillar's story. This is Pillar's Fall.

  7. Thanks so much, everyone! Sorry I couldn't post earlier. My day job is as a police dispatcher, and I just got off for the day, so I'm all yours now. I'm excited about the award opportunity for the Hollows, and even more excited about the new one, Pillar's Fall. This is going to be an awesome series, with a great mix of horror and action.
