(Urban Legends, #1)
by R.S. Broadhead
Publication date:
October 24th, 2017
New Adult, Supernatural, Thriller

Black eyes. No emotion. No sympathy. Only emptiness. 
Piper McAdams’s life was normal. Career? Check. Boyfriend? Check. Friends? Check. One unsettling run in with a homeless man turns everything from normal to terrifying. She begins seeing... things. 
Things she can’t seem to explain or make any sense of. 
As if things aren’t already getting out of hand, Piper receives news that the only family member she has is dead. She thinks maybe a trip across the country to her hometown will get her away from all the strange events happening. 
After a late night accident, Piper isn’t in her hometown burying her loved one. She’s in a town called Hell. All she wants to do is leave, but the people seem to be holding her there for some reason. 
A reason she feels threatens her life. Around every corner things become darker and scarier. 
Can she escape what is coming for her?

~AUTHOR INTERVIEW with R.S. Broadhead~

1) What gave you the inspiration for the storyline? 

I wanted to do something a little more on the freaky side to release in October because Halloween is my favorite holiday! I love a good scare, and the concept of black-eyed children is beyond creepy to me. I thought it would be a good Urban Legend to start out with since that one terrifies me the most.  

2) Are there any hidden themes in the book that you hope readers will discover? 

Not that I can think of …

3) Are any of the characters based on real people you know? 

Not in this book, but my first series … Yeah there are loads of characters based loosely off people I know. Some of the events that take place in Unveiled actually happened to me. Obviously not the monsters attacking, but some of the stuff that happens at the parties.

4) Who has influenced you most as a writer? 

Probably Stephen King. He has the ability to terrify the hell out of people!

5) If you could have any three literary characters over to your place for game night, who would you invite, what would you play, what would you serve, and why?

Hmmmm I would have to pick Steele from my book Unveiled. In my mind he looks exactly like Alex Pettyfer. Jentry from I See You by Molly McAdams. And maybe … Trey from Under Different Stars by Amy Bartol. We would play Twister, obviously. And our food would be stuff like chocolate and strawberries. Ba chicka wa wa. Sounds like the beginning of a good time. LOL! Oh and, of course, all of them would have to be shirtless. 

Author Bio:
R.S. Broadhead lives in Jackson, Alabama with her husband of ten years, their two little girls, and a pug named Wednesday Love the Duchess, or Winnie for short. She has a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in business administration. She loves to snowboard, travel (Australia is her favorite place so far), and dance (not professionally, just whenever she feels like it). When she was sixteen-years-old, she and her friends would take pictures and make up funny stories about them. Fourteen years later, UNVEILED was born. UNVEILED, her first novel, is the first book in a four book series.
