Blog Tour: Silas by Robert J. Duperre-Guest Post and Giveaway!

Welcome to the blog tour for Silas by Robert J. Duperre!

First up, we have a guest post from Robert J. Duperre about his favorite places to write!

Two places, really. I love to write in my basement studio. It's dim and private down there, atmospheric, which really helps me get in the mood to create the worlds I do.

But I also write in the car, whenever I need to bring my children somewhere (lessons, church, birthday parties, etc). For some reason, I actually more productive during those moments. Perhaps it's because I have no other option but to write, whereas in my studio, I can always go upstairs and spend time with my oft-lonely wife Jess, which is perhaps the thing I enjoy most in life.

Thanks so much for sharing! Now here's some information about the book and the author for you.

About Silas - goodreads, amazon, B&N, Indie Bound
Robert J. Duperre, author of The Fall and Dead of Winter, now presents Silas, a contemporary fantasy novel. Ken Lowery is a man at odds with his life. He hates his job, is disappointed in his marriage, and feels resigned to leading a mundane existence.

That all changes when his wife brings home a rambunctious Black Labrador puppy named Silas, who forges a remarkable connection with Ken and begins to heal his inner turmoil. When some neighborhood children start to go missing, he takes it upon himself to protect those around him and is thrust into a surreal world where monsters roam. Not everything is what it seems to be, he soon discovers, including his new best friend.
