Today I welcome the Book Tour for the seasonably creepy and unsettling The Dead of Winter by A. B. Gibson. Along with this spotlight post, I’ve got an excerpt to share, and then I’ll be giving my take on the novel here in a bit. But before I get to talking about the book, let’s start by learning a little about this here book, okay?
Four young professionals pick the wrong weekend to visit a popular Pumpkin Patch Bed and Breakfast. It’s the last day of the season, and the weather and the farm are picture-perfect. Ma and Pa Winter are the consummate hosts, and they immediately win over Dillon, Tara, Josh and Julia with their homespun authenticity. Like the thousands of other visitors to Winters Farm and Orchard, the four are eager to pick apples and pumpkins and take the challenge of the Giant Corn Maze. But Ma Winter has other plans. A scary moonlight hayride spirals into a frantic twenty-four hours of deception and mayhem, and the group find themselves unwilling participants in a horrific family tradition.
About A. B. Gibson:
A. B. Gibson has lived a wondrous life jam-packed with exotic adventures, unusual living spaces, and terrific friends. A brief stint as a copywriter led to an exciting lifelong career in advertising. For many years, Alan and his partner lived with their dogs in a rambling old farmhouse in the middle of an apple orchard, surrounded by a giant corn maze. Sometimes at night neighbors complained of noisy chainsaws, but any further similarity with Ma and Pa Winters’ operation is, of course, purely coincidental.
