MBB: Authors Robert Ottone and Michael Seidlinger sign and discuss their books, Saturday, September 2nd at 12pm.

Double your fun: two authors, two book signings at Market Block Books, Saturday September 2nd at noon.

Robert Ottone signs The Vile Thing We Created, while Clash Books author Michael Seidlinger will be promoting Anybody Home?

Description for The Vile Thing We Created

Lola and Ian had what they thought was the perfect relationship. Vacations. Fine dining. A
healthy sex life.
But when their childless lifestyle begins impacting their social lives, they decide to take the
natural next step.
But what happens when that next step cracks the perfect foundation Lola and Ian have built?
What happens when that next step is anything but natural?

Robert P. Ottone's The Vile Thing We Created is a terrifying vision of parenthood in the tradition
of Ira Levin and Thomas Tryon.



Description for Anybody Home?

What came first, the home or the desire to invade?


A seasoned invader with multiple home invasions under
their belt recounts their dark victories while offering tutelage to a new
generation of ambitious home invaders eager to make their mark on the annals of
criminal history. From initial canvasing to home entry, the reader is complicit
in every strangling and shattered window. The fear is inescapable.
Examining the sanctuary of the home and one of the horror genre's most
frightening tropes, Anybody Home? points the camera lens onto
the quiet suburbs and its unsuspecting abodes, any of which are potential
stages for an invader ambitious enough to make it the scene of the next big
crime sensation. Who knows? Their performance just might make it to the
silver screen.
