“With his debut novel, Jones plunges readers into the lives of two desperate people facing a close encounter of the nightmare kind.”
It started with a bottle of champagne. Neighbors Mike and Beth met by chance, then a meteor shower sparked a need for human connection.
After their drunken one-night stand, they learn the meteor event has caused widespread destruction. The beautiful light show was simply a small part of something else … something terrifying.
Stranded on the Oregon coast, strange screams echoing from the dunes, the rising tide approaches fast. Mike and Beth will have to face their own demons head-on to survive the nightmare apocalypse.
Why we’re excited about this book:
KC Jones is a newcomer to the horror fiction scene. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Jones is a former screenwriter who has turned his passion for horror into prose. With his debut novel, Jones plunges readers into the lives of two desperate people facing a close encounter of the nightmare kind. Jeremy Robert Johnson (The Loop) says: “Grab your popcorn for this one … . Mayhem, masses of menacing monsters, pulsing parasitic vines … this is one gnarly day at the beach.”, and Ally Wilkes (All the White Spaces) says: “Black Tide is cinematic, fast-paced, pedal-to-the-metal storytelling: I found myself gasping!” Jonathan Janz (The Siren and the Specter, The Dark Game) calls Black Tide: “A relentless, nerve-jangling nightmare ride through an apocalyptic maritime hellscape. Brimming with relatable characters and shocking left turns, this is gasp-for-your-breath, peek-through-your-fingers horror, and I loved every page of it. Highly recommended!”
Forthcoming from Tor Nightfire 31 May 2022, Black Tide by KC Jones is available for pre-order now.
