I will be hosting a Facebook Live event in conjunction with my publisher, Crystal Lake Publishing, on April 29th at 8:00 PM EDT! I’ll be in conversation with the esteemed Todd Keisling, and I’ll read a few scenes from the novel! Sign up today, it’s free!
Early feedback on Bayou Whispers:
Wood wrote a compelling tale steeped in New Orleans flavor and dark magic. The characters are colorful, likable, and altogether a triumph.
—Mercedes M. Yardley, Stoker Award-winning author of “Little Dead Red”
Bayou Whispers is a haunting, touching novel that blends the horrors of everyday life with that of the supernatural. Tapping into the tension and setting of films like Angel Heart and True Detective, this is a hypnotic story told from a place of loss, community, and resolute hope.
—Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration and Thriller Award nominee, Breaker
The secrets in BAYOU WHISPERS unwind like a line of music. But it’s the music that plays just before the monsters jump out.
—Sarah Read, Stoker award-winning author of “The Bone Weaver’s Orchard”
Wood’s Bayou Whispers is a sublime cocktail of horror, supernatural thriller, and urban fantasy, where the mythos of voodoo clashes with the modern day. Fans of Jim Butcher and the Marvel Cinematic Universe will love this.
—Todd Keisling, Bram Stoker nominated author of Devil’s Creek
