SWAY Release, Interview & Snow in Egypt

One of the best book-reviewer bloggers around is Matthew Keith.  He has a new book out, and I'm helping him celebrate its release!

A psychological thriller/horror that explores the inner workings of a man who had some of the worst experiences possible as a child.  Now, as an adult, he is revisiting his childhood demons, trying to put it all together, all the while unaware that that's what he is doing.

Through the re-emergence of a recurring childhood nightmare, he works toward beating back the man representative of a society holding him in check.

Is it real, the product of a doctor who chemically induces his patients into visiting the dream as a means of control, or is it nothing more than the ravings of insanity manifesting itself through a dream?


Author Bio:
I live in Kentucky near Fort Knox with my wife, 2 children, and our dog "Elvis".  Although I have been writing for the better part of a decade, I have only recently begun publishing novels.

"Sway" is my third novel, and is very different from my first two which were the first two in a trilogy, "Watchers of the Night"—a sci-fi fantasy adventure about a young man who can walk the night in his dreams.  He is recruited by an agency run by the United Nations that uses people like him to gather intelligence.  The first book in that trilogy, published in April 2013, won 5th place in the annual writing contest.

My next project, currently underway and due for release in the spring, is the final installment of that trilogy, "The Fall of Astralis".  After finishing the Watchers trilogy, it is my intention to head back into darker fiction and continue to test my boundaries as a writer.

On Friday night, Dec 13th, snow fell in Cairo for the first time in 100 years.

Yes, those tiny things that look like ants in the snow are actually people.

Many Egyptians were delighted with the snow because most haven't seen it before.
But it quickly melted, leaving a flood. Egyptian streets have no gutters or sewer system because with only about 5 rainy days a year, those are generally unnecessary.

The snow didn't reach the Red Sea coast where I live because of the relative warmth of the sea.  Too bad.  I'd have been thrilled.  I used to live in the north east of the US, and I kinda miss a white Christmas...
