News from author Robert Brooks, The Clown Forest Murders


From: Robert Brooks <brooksrr@comporium.net>
Sent: Tuesday, January 1, 2019 10:19 AM
To: The Brookses
Subject: No Clowning Around

Dear Readers:
Our publisher has surprised us with a half-off sale for The Clown Forest Murders.  The ebook is available today for $1.99.  If you have this mystery on your reading list but, due to your procrastination inclinations or penurious circumstances, failed to get your hands on this classic, this is your chance for a better new year.  See Amazon now.

Both Princeton authors will be grateful if you take the journey to Princeton in the 90s and the shocking end on the shores of Lake Carnegie.  For those with a Norwich, NY connection this is THE NORWICH MYSTERY.  For those with coulrophobia (fear of clowns), be assured there are no clowns in the mystery.  This is the story of Dave Austin, who saw his brother murdered and is protected by amnesia, until it erodes in college and forces him to answer the dangerous questions of who and why.

Alert your reading friends.  they deserve a New Year's gift and Andrew and I deserve a fatter royalty check.  At least fatter than two bucks.

Authors Robert and A. C. Brooks' Booksigning to be held at The Curiosity Shop Bookstore, Murphy, NC, Friday October 5, 2018

Author Robert Brooks of Brevard NC is a featured guest at The Curiosity Shop bookstore in Murphy on Friday, October 5, 2018. The book-signing event from five to eight p.m. for his mystery novel The Clown Forest Murders is part of the regular Friday night Art Walk celebrated each month in Murphy, NC.

Bob, along with first author and son A.C. Brooks, wrote The Clown Forest Murders released last November by Black Opal Books. The tale is set in a small town with surrounding forests and fields where strange mushrooms can arise and change behavior. Those who marvel at the alluring fungi in western NC forests will see them in a new and mysterious light. The novel tells Dave’s story: he witnessed his brother’s murder, but amnesia protects him, his memories return, and he must investigate. Dave’s return to his home town sparks problems with his psychiatrist, local cops, and the killer. Written in memory of a son and brother, the novel is dedicated to those who endure mental illness. Elements of an attractive but flawed hero, a heroine who holds a secret, and a hidden killer make the book a great read. The author will be available at The Curiosity Shop to discuss his books, reveal secrets of their creation, and sign copies.


R.R. Brooks, a retired pharmaceutical researcher, lives in Brevard with his wife, a beagle, and two cats. He writes fiction and nonfiction, including published science fiction and fantasy stories. The epic fantasy novel Justi the Gifted was published by Leo Publishing in January 2015. He is a member of several writers groups and the N.C. Writers’ Network and maintains author’s pages on Facebook and Amazon
