In the epic tradition of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Jonathan Maberry, a chilling new masterwork of small-town evil, centuries-old traditions, and newly-risen terror..
Every year at harvest time, something strange and wonderful happens in the sleepy farm community of Ember Hollow. It comes alive. Truckloads of pumpkins are sent off to be carved into lanterns. Children scramble to create the creepiest, scariest costumes. Parents stock up on candy and prepare for the town’s celebrated Pumpkin Parade. And then there is Devil’s Night . . .
But this year, something is different. Some of the citizens are experiencing dark, disturbing visions. Others are beginning to wonder if they’re losing their minds, or maybe their souls. One newly sober singer with the voice of a fallen angel is tempted to make a deal that will seal his fate. And one very odd boy is kept locked in a shed by his family–for reasons too horrible to imagine . . .
Whatever is happening to this town, they’re going to make it through this Halloween. Even if it kills them . . .
“If old school “80’s like” slasher horror excites you or someone you buy gifts for, certainly give Red Harvest a read.”
“If you like books by Stephen King and Jonathan Maberry, this book will appeal to you. Plenty of good gory fun!”
“Get ready to read because the pacing of Red Harvest is relentless. It’s a creative story for lovers of Halloween and horror—full of energy and grisly gore—and yet, underneath all the gruesomeness, there are some important and morally complex ideas about our society. The ending is an absolute blowout scene, and Mr. Greene’s inobtrusive yet excellent prose lets it play out in your mind like a film.”
“What do you get when you combine horror punk, a killer ala Michael Meyers and the parade scene from “Animal House”? Red Harvest!…this book has tons of creepy characters, more than enough religious zealots, recovering alcoholics, and enough scares and gore to delight the biggest horror fan.”
“This book was scary, thrilling, and touching all at once. Sorry to the big guys, but this author has out-Kinged, out-Koontzed, and out-Straubed every modern horror novel I’ve read in a long time.”
That is some high praise! See for yourself after getting your copy today at:

The horror doesn’t end there…
Centuries after their eradication and the death of their Queen in the Great Fire of London in 1666, the Vampire population now numbers in only the hundreds. A few of the remaining survivors regrouped and a High Council was born. Now a new threat has arrived: modern day military is not only tracking members of the council, they are attempting to create their own vampire soldiers. Enter Olivia Irons. Ex Black Ops. Doing her best to live a normal civilian life, but it never feels right. No family, no friends, and trouble always seems to follow. When the Sanguinarian Council offers her the chance of a lifetime, the biggest risk of all seems like the only path left to choose. How will she answer The Crimson Calling?
“The Crimson Calling by Patrick C. Greene is a suspenseful, fast-paced tale featuring a strong, bad ass heroine, and lots of non-stop action. It puts a new spin on vampire lore by combining the old myths with the modern military.”
“With a delightful twist in an ever-so-slightly alternate universe, you find yourself in a world where vampires are victims. With excellent pacing, Patrick plunges you into vicious battles, taking you out just long enough to catch your breath while well-executed dialogue and description guide you through the plot and history of this world. It’s a near perfect balance between backstory and action.”

About author Patrick C. Greene
As a toddler, Patrick C. Greene was creating horrors in crayon and magic marker upon every available surface. Not surprisingly, he soon discovered comic books and immersed himself in the fantastic worlds found therein. Horror fiction and films came next, and despite spending nights of terror hiding under covers, he always found himself drawn back to tales of dark fates.
Greene cut his fangs in the screenwriting business but found his true calling in the world of prose fiction of the kind his heroes King, Barker and Koontz create.
With the success of his first novel PROGENY, and second THE CRIMSON CALLING from Hobbes End Publishing, Greene presents a brand of horror as emotional as it is terrifying, as engaging as it is suspenseful.
