ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
The thirteen years he spent working in author relations taught him the business of publishing as well as the psyche of writers.
Early on, he made a deliberate choice of not wanting to be boxed in by a brand or a genre. Instead, Travis has chosen time and time again to write the stories that mean something to him at that moment. He views his first ten years of being published as training and practice. Those novels in many ways were written for himself.
The four years of writing full time have taught him the discipline and determination necessary to make it as a novelist. They’ve also served to close the chapter on what is hopefully just one era in his writing journey.
The stories continue to fill his head like they did when he was in third grade. The only difference is that Travis now knows what to do with those stories. His goal continues to be to tell stories that move him as well as his readers. He wants to continue to experiment and take risks, but more than anything he wants to provide readers a satisfying experience.
The dream remains the same. To try and write something magnificent. To make up wild worlds full of wonderfully rich characters. To make sense of the world through the stories he tells. And to try and inspire hope with the words he writes.
ABOUT THE BOOK
His Rebellion Will Soon Turn to Hope
When Chris Buckley first encountered the mysteries of creepy Solitary, North Carolina, he had little idea how far he would fall into the town’s shadows. After losing the love of his life, Chris tried to do things his way. He hunted answers. Then he gave up trying to find them.
But now Chris comes back to Solitary knowing there’s a purpose for his being there. As he watches his place in a twisted and evil bloodline become clear, Chris waits for the last battle—and wonders who will be left when he finally makes his stand.

Doesn't just the title alone make you cringe? Then you think about the town: Solitary, those two words alone left me feeling as though I'd be in for quite a ride as soon as I began to read this book.
This is book 4 in the series, this book will lure you in, having you turning pages as you're looking over your should and just may keep you up all night reading it.....it's that good. The ending may just surprise, but then again, it may not....I have to keep you hanging in suspense. A little edgy, a little suspense, good and evil, and a few twists all mixed together create this wonderfully can't wait to finish, fast paced book!
I wouldn't just settle for reading Hurt, because then you'll feel bad that you didn't read the first three, and who wants to go backward in a series? You might as well just buy them all.
