The Travelling Man

The Travelling Man
By Matt Drabble 
Genre: Thriller, Horror

The small desert town of Granton is a typical slow boiling pot of unfulfilled hopes and dreams. Every hard working day is much like any other here where little ever changes.
Sheriff Cassie Wheeler runs a tight ship in the tradition of her late father. There is little serious crime to trouble her department, save for the local miners’ occasional rowdiness after payday.
But Granton has its share of secrets hiding behind twitching curtains. Small town folks often have the biggest of ambitions.

Now the long dusty road into town has brought with it a stranger. A man of elegance calling himself Gilbert Grange has arrived. He brings with him a bag full of dreams and a silver tongue of promise. He can give you whatever you desire, all you have to do is sign on the dotted line.
The residents of Granton are about to discover that dreams can come at a terrible price, and you should always be careful what you wish for.


If you're a fan of Stephen King's Needful Things then you have to get this book. Great character development that grabbed me from the first read, creepy as hell descriptions and a main character I wouldn't hesitate to hang out in a dark alley with. Cassie Wheeler is a kick ass heroine who doesn't take anything lying down. Great story...still reading and can't put it down...I even went and bought Asylum...

“Gated” was a UK Horror Chart #4 best seller.
“Asylum – 13 Tales of Terror” was a Horror/Anthology Chart #1 for over a year and voted #5 on The Horror Novel Reviews Top 10 Books of 2013.
“Abra-Cadaver” recently won an Indie Book of the Day award.
I have recently been signed by Taylor Street Books in San Francisco who will be producing my novel "The Montague Portrait" and I am currently writing "Double Visions"

Blood Chimera


Alpena, MI (August 12, 2014) – World Weaver Press (Eileen Wiedbrauk, Editor-in-Chief) has 
announced Blood Chimera, the first novel in a new paranormal mystery series by Jenn Lyons, is 
available in trade paperback and ebook today, Tuesday, August 12, 2014.
Some ransoms aren’t meant to be paid. Kidnap and Ransom negotiation used 
to be straightforward. The bad guys kidnap someone, and K&R expert 
Jackson Pastor negotiates their release, skillfully traversing a maze of 
bloodthirsty monsters: criminals, terrorists, police, and especially the FBI. 
But that was before he met real bloodthirsty monsters. 

When Jackson Pastor arrives in Los Angeles to help a new client recover his 
kidnapped wife, he finds himself dropped in the middle of a 500-year-old war 
between rival European and Mexican vampire clans, a conflict that threatens 
to escalate into a full-on public gang war. Worse, Jackson hasn’t been brought 
to Los Angeles to be a negotiator. His new boss wants to turn him into an 
assassin. With Jackson about to be caught in the middle of a clan war, his only 
hope of escape may lie with a secret FBI monster-hunting task-force led by a 
very dangerous, eccentric wizard. Which could be a problem, since Jackson’s a 
monster himself.
Blood Chimera is be available in trade paperback and ebook via,,,, and other online retailers, and for wholesale through Ingram. You 
can also find Blood Chimera on Goodreads.

About the author:

Jenn Lyons lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, three cats and a lot of 
opinions on anything from Sumerian creation myths to the correct way to make a 
martini. At various points in her life, she has wanted to be an archaeologist, 
anthropologist, architect, diamond cutter, fashion illustrator, graphic designer, or 
Batman. Turning from such obvious trades, she is now a video game producer by 
day, and spends her evenings writing science fiction and fantasy. When not 
writing, she can be found debating the Oxford comma and Joss Whedon’s oeuvre 
at various local coffee shops. 

World Weaver Press is an independently owned publisher of fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction. 
We believe in great storytelling.
