I KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT ME You say that I am a madman. You say that I am dangerous. You say that I am the one who has been abducting women, slaughtering them, and burying their corpses all around this city for years. You are wrong, because only part of that statement is […]
Another Great Review for THE BOULEVARD MONSTER!!
The Boulevard Monster is the first book I’ve read by author Jeremy Hepler. Published through Bloodshot Books, it is a strong novel told in the first person, something I’m not always too keen on. Hepler’s tale holds together well and the first person pov is something that I enjoyed in this particular story. The Boulevard Monster is a tale of greed and temptation with Seth Fowler as our narrator, an unreliable one at that. When the chance to earn some extra cash presents itself from a strange figure called Luther, Fowler finds the opportunity too hard to resist. All he needs to do is dispose of a few bodies and not ask any questions. Simple, right?
A construction foreman by day, Fowler has access to various sites where burial of the corpses will result in little fuss. However, the waters start to grow murky and quickly. Fowler builds a web…

Check out this brief chat I had with horror Author Glenn Rolfe over on his blog! Thanks, Glenn!
Jeremy Hepler is a new name to me. His debut novel, THE BOULEVARD MONSTER (2017, Bloodshot Books) is getting some great reviews, and I trust Pete Kahle over at Bloodshot. I’m getting ready to dig into the novel this week, but I had a chance to harass Mr. Hepler early. So, here’s how that went:
GLENN: Hi, Jeremy!
First off, congrats on your debut novel, THE BOULEVARD MONSTER. I’m getting ready to start it myself, but how about telling everyone where the initial idea for the story came from. Also, how close to the original idea did the final product turn out?
JEREMY: Thanks for having me, Glenn! The initial idea for The Boulevard Monster came many years ago when my son Noah and I left story time at the library. We stopped at a red light, and when I glanced to my left, I saw a couple of Hugh’s…

My Thoughts on Creating and Building Suspense
Jeremy Hepler is a new to me author, but even though I haven’t read it, I feel confident in recommending his newest novel and telling you it’s almost definitely a good one. The reason for this is simple. It’s from Bloodshot Books, and editor/publisher Pete Kahle is just incapable of producing or curating bad fiction. I’ve read the majority of books in Bloodshot’s body of published work and I’ve never read a book that wasn’t over-the-top fantastic. So yes, I highly recommend THE BOULEVARD MONSTER based on that experience, and I also recommend this entertaining and insightful article he’s written for us here today. Enjoy.
