From the author of middle grades spine-chilling horror series The Templar Chronicles comes a supernatural thriller for his adult fans



Title: Night Chill

Genre: Supernatural thriller/horror

Pages: 430

"Gunhus delivers a taut supernatural thriller...all the chops of an action-packed horror tale." - Kirkus Reviews

Emotionally scarred from a car accident in which a little girl was killed, Jack Tremont moves his family from Southern California to Prescott City in the quiet mountains of Western Maryland. At first, the small town appears to be the perfect place to reconnect with his family and to cure his troubled conscience, but Jack soon discovers he has left one nightmare only to walk into another. When a stranger who has been struck by lightning dies in Jack's arms, a child's voice comes from the man's smoldering body to issue a warning:  
They're coming for your little girl, Jack. . . you better run. Take your family and run. 

The warning turns prophetic when a local cult targets Jack's five year-old daughter Sarah and Jack finds himself in a fight against dark, supernatural forces that he cannot begin to understand. With the help of a mysterious Native American, Jack uncovers more than just a conspiracy that extends into the small community, but an ancient mystery larger than anything he could have imagined. Suddenly, he's not only fighting for his family, but also to stop a devastating evil from escaping into the world. Above all, he must rush against the clock to save his little girl.

 Top Ten Good Writing Habits by Jeff Gunhus

1) Write every day. Even just a little.
2) Have a plan. Outlining prevents writer's block.
3) Set goals. A daily word count or a weekly page count. Two thousand words a day sounds doable. Finish the novel by July 15th sounds impossible.
4) Turn off the Internet. Email, Twitter and Facebook are the bane of all authors. WAY more fun than writing (not really, but they still win too often if they are available.)
5) Set the mood. Plugging in ear bud with movie soundtracks is how I do it. Easier that setting mood lighting and lighting candles.
6) Posture. Slouching in front of a laptop for hours on end with eventually tweak your next. Sit up!
7) Invest in ergonomics. Have a great chair, ergonomic keypad, mouse, the whole nine yards. Your body will thank you for it.
8) Rest your eyes. Every 15 minutes look up and focus on something in the distance.
9) Exercise. Writing is a sedentary activity and you'll turn into a mood blob unless you work out.
10) Celebrate. Being a writer, even if it's a hobby, is amazing. Celebrate first drafts. Celebrate sales benchmarks. Celebrate that fact that you are a Creator!
Bonus
11) Don't stop. Get thick skin. Take criticism as a way to improve, but never stop.
