C.N. Faust- Mr. Fingers Blog Tour!

 

fullcover2

First off, I would like to thank the wonderful Kristy Feltenberger Gillespie for inviting me to guest post on her blog! My name is C.N. Faust, I am here to write about my new novella, Mr. Fingers.

I started out with only the idea that I wanted to write a horror story about a clown. There are never enough scary stories with clowns as the main villain. At least… not very many serious ones. I also wanted to write about cannibals, a very new avenue for me, but one that had always been fascinating.

I researched serial killers, like Jeffrey Dahmer and Ed Gein. They were my greatest inspiration for technique. For gore, I took my inspiration from Rob Zombie’s “House of 1000 Corpses”. Needless to say this is definitely the bloodiest story I have ever written.

I wanted it to be truly terrifying. In my experience, the paranormal isn’t so scary to people anymore. It has to be something real, something that could actually happen. That is why I based my story in Boone, NC. I am from North Carolina, and I wanted something that could be close to home and be told in the style of an urban legend. I gave the characters real backgrounds, some of their experiences have a personal flavor from my own life.

Another thing that I incorporated into the story is my obsession with plastic surgery. I love all forms of body modification, and I love the idea of imperfect people becoming perfect by just a few strokes of the knife. Not only would the obsession with perfection and beauty be an interesting character twist to my killer clown, but the methods that he used to slice people open as a plastic surgeon would come in handy. If that gives you any idea of what a demented turn this story took.

***Mr. Fingers is due to be released in Paperback and Kindle format tomorrow, the 11th of January! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I would like to give away 20 free ebooks to the first 20 people who reblog this post and spread the word! Be sure to read it during the day time … with the lights on. Or don’t, if you’re feeling brave.***
