BLURB BLITZ & #GIVEAWAY - Northwoods Wolfman by Scott Burtness

Northwoods Wolfman

by Scott Burtness



When Dallas is recruited by an ancient order of monster hunters, he's more than happy to sign up. The self-proclaimed Hero of Trappersville did kill a bloodthirsty vampire, after all. As far as Dallas is concerned, monsters are monsters, and they have no place in Wisconsin.

Or do they? And does Dallas really get to choose which side he's on?

Book Two of the Monsters in the Midwest series.


Randall had whistled through his teeth when Dallas answered the door.

“You look like Batman and Tim the Tool Guy’s D.I.Y. lovechild,” he chuckled. “What are you planning to do with all that stuff?”

The look Dallas gave Randall was sympathetic.

“I know you been doing this for a little while, but I can see why Colton’s looking for new help. You gotta be prepared, right? Covert ops? Surgical strike? Get in, get out, get drunk, get laid, that’s how Big D rolls. You think I’m diving into a nest of, a nest of, um. You know, a nest of… Say, what are we hunting, anyway?”

“Boo hag.”


“No, we’re hunting a boo hag.”

“Doo rag?”

“No, boo hag, you twit. Kinda like a vampire, but they eat life force from breath, not blood. Sometimes mistaken for skin walkers since they don’t have skin of their own and are fond of taking someone else’s to wear for a bit.”
Dallas nodded authoritatively. “Well, that just proves my point. You think I’m diving into a nest of boo hags with nothing but my sunny disposition?”

  1. I'm excited to be here- what a great blog! Thanks for letting me stop by :-)

  2. Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

  3. Great excerpt~I really enjoyed learning about you and your book! Thank you for a great post and contest!

  4. Hi Mai- Great question with lots of answers. The name that floats to the top is Alden Bell (The Reapers are the Angels). I love how clean his language is. Settings and characters are simply but beautifully written. While my writer 'voice' is very different from his, I often refer back to his work when I'm struggling with a serious scene for inspiration. The other author I adored was Terry Pratchett. I lean on his works when writing because I love how well his humor is conveyed in his works, especially when setting up funny situations.

  5. Sounds like a great series! Thanks for sharing the excerpt :)

  6. Cute excerpt! I am definitely intrigued.

  7. I have enjoyed learning about the book. Thanks for sharing it.
