Virtual Book Tour: Mr. Penny-Farthing by Eric Avedissian #interview #giveaway #horror #supernatural #rabtbooktours @angryreporter @RABTBookTours


Martyr's Vow Series, Book 2


Date Published: 12-15-2023

Publisher: Shadow Spark Publishing


All Armand wants is to share his life with his girlfriend Vonnie. But money is tight, their relationship is fizzling, and not even a monster-hunting side gig is paying off.

When a mysterious drifter named Mr. Penny-Farthing blows into town on his antique high-wheeler, Armand thinks his troubles are over. Penny-Farthing offers Armand and Vonnie enough money to cover their expenses with one condition: they must find and return the soul of a serial killer who escaped Hell.

Completing Penny-Farthing’s contract won’t be easy when demons appear all over the city and bodies start piling up. Overwhelmed and pushed to the brink, Armand realizes his greatest fear isn’t demons or shadowy murderers: it’s losing Vonnie forever. Can Armand stop a killer and keep the woman he loves, or will Hell take everything from him?


Nail-biting and visceral, Mr. Penny-Farthing is a high-octane horror story about escaping your comfort zone while fighting for love.



What is the hardest part of writing your books?

Resisting the urge to throw the laptop out of the window and emit a painful primal scream. Seriously, the hardest part of writing for me is staying the course and finishing.


What are your most played songs?


For Mr. Penny-Farthing, I went full heavy metal: Dio’s “Holy Diver” and “Last in Line”, Metallica’s “Turn the Page”, Ozzy Osbourne’s “Bark at the Moon” and System of a Down’s “Toxicity”.


Do you have critique partners or beta readers?


I have a fantastic beta reader who reads my work and gives me notes and feedback. Some of these notes are hilarious. She gets me.


What book are you reading now?


Slewfoot by Brom.


How did you start your writing career?


I was a newspaper reporter for years, writing news stories and features. That’s where I learned writing on deadline and the basic components of writing. My first published work was a role-playing game called Ravaged Earth. I’m a gamer and wanted to write my own setting, so I spent years working with a game company and developing a science fiction pulp game. After the second revised edition of Ravaged Earth was published, I wanted to write short stories, and spent years writing the most atrocious, cringe-inducing fiction. After taking a few writing classes, I landed my first short story sale, then another. While I was in grad school, I signed a contract for my debut novella. A year after that, I landed a four-book deal for The Martyr’s Vow series.


Tell us about your next release.


It’s a cosmic horror sunshine noir about a reporter in the 1960s who is writing about the murder of his ex-girlfriend. As he investigates deeper he uncovers a shadowy conspiracy in his quaint seaside resort town. I pulled from my own experience as a reporter for this one and had a blast writing it. That one’s due for a June 24 release.
