    That's great, RJ! Thanks for passing it along!

    I'm actually at work on a sequel as we speak...

    Thanks guys!

    I won't give too much away this early, but I can tell you that it picks up some time after Kin, and focuses on Chester "Beau" Beaumont, addicted to painkillers and given to frequent hallucinations of his deceased friend Finch, after barely escaping Hood Mountain with his life. He is hired by Kara Lambert to find her sister Claire, whose psychological issues have only deepened in the years since the Elkwood Incident, leading to a conviction that she has found the whereabouts of Luke Merrill, the only surviving member of the Merrill clan. Claire believes that the only way to get her life, and her sanity back, is to confront Luke and kill him. As his chemical dependency worsens and the line between real and unreal begins to blur, Beau's efforts to find Claire takes him back to Elkwood and Hood Mountain, and on to Florida, to Durance, a rural community maddened and yet thriving on the production of crystal meth. There he will unravel secrets and fight to survive the darkness that almost claimed him once and may already have claimed Claire.

    Sounds awesome and almost like you've taken a tour of my home state of South Carolina, which by the way would make a great cameo location in the sequel, plenty of meth-addicted, murderous rednecks lurking in the woods around these parts, just saying

    A lot of rural areas are like that these days, it seems. As research for the new novel I recently read Nick Reding's Methland, and it was a hell of an eye-opener.

    sadly, I could probably right a part 2 to Methland without ever having read it, just when I thought drugs couldn't get any scarier, bath salts start making the rounds and people start getting their faces chewed off, great fodder for horror stories but not so great in real life, but anyway, can't wait for your sequel and I hope you publish through Cemetery Dance cause they are great!

    The worse an economy gets, the more viable drugs become as a profitable industry. It has actually saved rural communities from destruction, albeit seeding long term destruction of another kind.

    This is spurred me to get my hands on Kin in the very near future. I loved Turtle Boy (on Kobo). So much to read, so little time. Good problem to have though right?

    When I read the part about the community surviving thanks to meth I was wondering if you got the idea for that from Methland or something since I saw you had been reading it on Goodreads. After reading the description of that one on Goodreads I decided I wanna check it out sometime. I don't read many non-fiction books, but do enjoy them. Enjoy true-crime books. Read "I" The Creation of a Serial Killer in one day I was so interested in it. Having half of it coming from the serial probably played a role in that. Also loved Killing Pablo about the hunt for the drug lord Pablo Escobar. It's amazing how towns thrive thanks to what someone does for it thanks to money made from illegal drugs and how towns will protect people like that. The way he lived in prison was amazing too. I don't know if that would be useful as research in writing a novel, but I imagine "I" The Creation of a Serial Killer could be useful in that you can discover how a serial killer feels/thinks.

    And no problem in sharing Kin, thanks for writing it! Not sure if that has been read by the BIL yet, they are down in FL so I don't get much chance to talk to him. I also recommended they get The Turtle Boy too since my sis has herself an eReader
    WARNING!!! WARNING!!! DO NOT VIEW THIS SPOILER! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

    Hey RJ: I actually read Methland after deciding to incorporate meth addiction and culture into the Kin sequel. The book came highly regarded, so that, along with a few documentaries, and my recent trip to Florida, aided immensely in research. I'll also keep an eye out for those other books you mentioned. Thanks!

    Mr. Kealan sir. Are there any online bookstores selling your books particularly Kin in epub file version for us non-Kindle or Nook people?
