In the Redlands, a field sown in demon blood, John Fontayne faces his own demons. A Faustian pact may lead him to the other side, but it will not protect him from the monsters that hunger for him. 

A gothic horror story set in the Australian outback. If you like this story, check out its companion, Releasing Sin.

Sweet, cool idea! Hopefully you become successful with it! (Well hopefully both of us become successful with our books haha)

Not a bad start, but not sure what the hook is outside of his friends leaving him. If not for the cover and description promising more I probably wouldn't continue to read. Strong hook should happen in the first chapter, if not first paragraph.

@flashhitter thank you! The image of a red field, full of demons or monsters, but contained by a white fence, just came to me one day. I usually work with an external prompt, so the fully formed image was very creepy!

Awesome! We don't get enough horror stories about Australia, this is a good read! How'd you get the idea for it?

So far a good start, though I'm trying to picture John and his friends, but considering the beer, women and marijuana lifestyle, it should be to hard to figure looks. Good start.
