Free E-Book Download – ‘The Painted Darkness’ by Brian James Freeman


The Painted Darkness‘ by Brian James Freeman is available for FREE download on the novel’s official website. Just click here to download!

This novel by Brian James Freeman sounds like a psychological horror story in the tradition of Stephen King. It will be published in hardcover in the fall, and is actually available for pre-order on Amazon. But to drum up promo and pre-publication interest, it’s being given away for FREE for a limited time both as a downloadable PDF file (I’ve checked this and the publishers have awesomely coded it in such a way that it looks great on a 6-inch screen like the Kindle or even on the iBooks app on the iTouch) and as an audiobook stream (it’s an MP3 that you can actually download too). I just wish that the publishers had thought to provide it in ePub format too.

Book Description:

When Henry was a child, something terrible happened in the woods behind his home, something so shocking he could only express his terror by drawing pictures of what he had witnessed. Eventually, Henry’s mind blocked out the bad memories, but he continued to draw, often at night by the light of the moon.

Twenty years later, Henry makes his living by painting his disturbing works of art. He loves his wife and his son, and life couldn’t be better… except there’s something not quite right about the old stone farmhouse his family now calls home. There’s something strange living in the cramped cellar, in the maze of pipes that feed the ancient steam boiler.

A winter storm is brewing, and soon Henry will learn the true nature of the monster waiting for him down in the darkness. He will battle this demon and, in the process, he may discover what really happened when he was a child — and why, in times of trouble, he thinks: I paint against the darkness.

But will Henry learn the truth in time to avoid the terrible fate awaiting him… or will the thing in the cellar get him and his family first?

P.S. If you’re still looking for books for the summer, why don’t you browse through the Amazon Summer Reading page? Or better yet, check out Stephen King’s Six standout books for summer found on EW? Not surprisingly, The MILLENNIUM TRILOGY by Stieg Larsson and THE PASSAGE by Justin Cronin are on top of his list. I have a feeling those books are on top of everyone’s list lately.
