About The Book:
“Hellfire & Damnation II” is the second short story collection in a series. The series contains short stories that are framed by Dante’s “Inferno” and the crimes or sins punished at each of the 9 Circles of Hell. However, there are no recurring characters and each story is complete within itself. “Hellfire & Damnation,” the first book, was released in 2011 to critical acclaim, winning an E-Lit Gold Medal, a Silver Feather Award, and an ALMA (American Literary Merit Award). “Hellfire & Damnation II” was released in mid-August and consists of 15 short stories, illustrations, an Introduction by Jason V Brock, a cover by award-winning artist Vincent Chong of the UK and a “From the Author” section describing the inspiration for each story.
The book will be FREE ON AMAZON for the 5 days leading up to Halloween, Oct. 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31. It is also on a Virtual Tour of 14 blogs from Oct. 11 through the end of the month, and you can find the schedule at Connie’s blog, www.WeeklyWilson.com.
