Friday Feature: Sasquatch Cover Reveal



Following his parents' ugly divorce, Jake Oliver chooses to move with his father to a remote corner of Connecticut. Bad enough their new home turns out to be a fenced-in dump in the middle of nowhere, but it seems that the previous owner, his dad’s late Uncle Horace, had been the local crackpot ridiculed by the community for his belief that a Bigfoot roamed the vast woodland preserve that lay beyond the property. Not everything about Jake’s new life is bad, though. His job at the local market is okay, and it doesn’t hurt that his coworker is pretty Nell Davis. But when odd things start to happen, like weird calls in the dead of night, stones thrown by an unseen assailant, and lingering foul odors wafting on the breeze, Jake starts to believe that maybe old Horace wasn’t so crazy after all. With Nell’s help, Jake is determined to make a name for himself by proving to the world that the mythical Sasquatch is alive and well and living in the woods just on the other side of that fence.

  1. In my middle school years I absolutely loved legendary tales. The Sasquatch, Lochness Monster, etc. I was a collector of these stories. Those and ghost stories. I can see this bringing back some serious memories of why I enjoyed such tales.

    Even out of high school (lived in Jacksonville, NC) we had older friends and family who told mysterious stories about sitings, etc. I never knew how to take them. lol

  2. Ha! Books where the crazy person isn't maybe so nuts after all are always entertaining.

  7. What an interesting book! The cover definitely catches the reader's attention. I also liked learning about the author (I live in CT and for about 9 years I taught a class in the Masters of Education program at the University of Bridgeport- but I don't think Andrea was one of my students.)

  8. So neat how the fence comes into play on the cover. And I was terrorized as a kid by that movie where the family hits a Bigfoot and and ties it to the top of their car. Can't remember the name though!

    1. I could handle Bigfoot as a child. Dolls? Now that's another story. ;)

  9. Great cover and I love this legend. I've never had a chance to read about it in fiction.

    1. Me too. It's one I think everyone's at least heard about, so I assume there'd be a huge audience for this book.
