Evolution is about to be kicked in the teeth by some very large feet.
An ancient terror has descended upon a remote Colorado town. The legendary beasts known as Sasquatch have emerged from the woods, hell-bent on killing everything in their path.
The only thing standing in their way are a group of wayward campers, a few scared survivors, and the host of a cable TV show...but it might just be enough.
It’s tons of muscle and fury versus a whole lot of bullets in a battle to determine once and for all; who is the hunter and who is the hunted.
Bigfoot Hunters is 90,000 words of bone-cracking, guns-a-blazing Horror Adventure by Rick Gualtieri, author of Bill The Vampire and Scary Dead Things.
Includes the bonus short story, Zombie Pride, part of the Zombie Bedtime Stories by author, Thea Isis Gregory.
MY REVIEW - I will be posting my review soon. I read this book about a week ago and LOVED it! Pure entertainment - MY GUILTY PLEASURE. And, Isn't the cover fetching? My hubby is currently reading Bigfoot Hunters - I gifted him a kindle copy because I knew this is a book he'd enjoy, too. Now, I have got to schedule Bill, The Vampire to read.
Tell us about your current release.
My current release is called Bigfoot Hunters. It’s a horror / adventure based off of a few of my interests including: monster rampages, cryptozoology, and the TV shows about it, such as: Monsterquest and Destination Truth. I had a ton of fun writing it and, based on the feedback I’ve received so far, people seem to be having an equally fun time reading it.
Does your significant other read your stuff?
Heck yeah! It’s either read my stuff or lie in bed at night and listen to me whine about it. Alas we must all make sacrifices when in a relationship. Of course, once she agrees to do so then she has to listen to me every five minutes asking, “What part are you up to?” I probably deserve to be smacked...repeatedly.
Plotter or Pantser? Why?
Depends on the story. I have a comedy/horror series (Bill the Vampire & Scary Dead Things) about a geeky vampire named Bill Ryder. I find comedy is best when it just happens. I generally have a beginning, middle and end in mind, but the rest of the story unfolds as I write it, kind of like a road trip. However, for Bigfoot Hunters I plotted. For a story such as that, it made more sense to know where every character (and monster) was and what they were doing at any given time.
What group did you hang out with in high school?
Nerd herd all the way.
What would you consider to be the best book you have ever read?
Stephen King’s IT. I re-read it at least once a year. It is an epic story.
How do you react to a bad review of your book?
I find there are two kinds of negative reviews: constructive criticism and the basic “You suck!” kind. Not much can be done with the latter. Some people will just despise a story. It happens, and probably just means they were the wrong audience (or that I actually suck). The former, however, I find to be useful. Knowing why someone dislikes my book (assuming it’s not a lone opinion) helps me improve my craft. That’s one of my goals. Each new novel I release should be better in some way than the last, whether it be plot, formatting, characterization etc.
What would we find under your bed?
Cats, dust, and a few of my wife’s musical instruments...maybe a monster or two as well, hard to tell some nights.
Tell us about the absolute BEST fan letter you have received.
I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a fan letter that didn’t make my day. It is the most wonderful feeling to receive an email, text, or tweet from a happy fan. However, I think my favorite was a person who told me that stories such as mine made them happy they decided to buy a Kindle. Pure awesome!
If I came to visit early in the morning would you impress me as being more like a chirpy bird or a grumpy bear?
I am a morning person, so probably an overly chirpy bird. Pity, as the rest of the household would be grumpy bears.
Describe what it’s like to be an author in three words.
Best thing ever!
Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?
Jaws scared people away from the beaches. I want Bigfoot Hunters to make you afraid of your own backyard.
Have any of your characters been modeled after yourself?
As an inside joke, kind of an homage to Stephen King putting himself into the Dark Tower series, a person who looks suspiciously like me makes a brief appearance (before meeting a horrific end) in Bill the Vampire. See if you can spot it. As for the rest, I would say no, but my wife says yes. Upon further reflection, I tend to agree with her.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you for giving me a chance! If I have been able to entertain you for even a few minutes then it has been entirely worth it. As for the future...stay tuned. There’s lots more to come.
Author, Web Guy, Gadget Freak. What can I say; I'm a regular renaissance geek. On the professional side of things: I have over 15 years of experience programming, designing, marketing, and managing. As for authoring: I am a huge fan of horror, adventure, and comedy and as such that's where I tend to write. Even better if I can combine all three into one unholy mishmash. I look at writing much like I look at B-movies. There is only one unforgivable sin that must be avoided at all costs: Thou Shalt Not Be Boring! Finally there's the gadget geek part of me. All I will say here is have iphone, will travel. 'nuff said, now go read the blog!
