From the Booking Desk:
When Ed Aymar reached out to ask me if BOLO Books would be interested in doing the cover reveal for a new book from Down & Out Books, I of course said yes. When I found out more about The Night of the Flood, I was not only honored to be the location for this reveal, but I was also immediately excited about this book’s concept in its totality. You don’t need to hear anything else from me, because this cover and the accompanying press release are sure to have you eagerly anticipating this new collection just as much as I am.
It happened the night Maggie Wilbourne was to be put to death, the first woman executed by the state of Pennsylvania in modern times. That was when a group of women, known as the Daughters, who were passionately protesting Maggie’s imprisonment struck. They blew up a local dam, flooding the town of Everton and indirectly inspiring a hellish night of crime and chaos.
Fourteen of today’s most exciting crime fiction writers will take you to the fictional town of Everton, with stories from criminals, cops, and civilians that explore the thin line between the innocent and the guilty, the rich and the poor, the insider and the outsider. Whether it’s a store owner grimly protecting his property from looters, an opportunistic servant who sees her time to strike, or two misguided youths taking their anger out against any available victim, THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD is an intricate and intimate examination of the moment when chaos is released–in both society and the human spirit.
The contributors for THE FLOOD include:
Rob Brunet (STINKING RICH)
Gwen Florio (DISGRACED)
Elizabeth Heiter (SEIZED)
J.J. Hensley (CHALK’S OUTLINE)
Jennifer Hillier (WONDERLAND)
Shannon Kirk (METHOD 15/33)
Sarah M. Chen (CLEANING UP FINN)
Wendy Tyson (A MUDDIED MURDER)
E.A. Aymar (YOU’RE AS GOOD AS DEAD)
Jenny Milchman (AS NIGHT FALLS)
Angel Colon (NO HAPPY ENDINGS)
Mark Edwards (THE LUCKY ONES)
Alan Orloff (RUNNING FROM THE PAST)
Hilary Davidson (BLOOD ALWAYS TELLS)
With an introduction from bestseller Hank Phillippi Ryan (SAY NO MORE)
THE NIGHT OF THE FLOOD hits shelves on March 5, 2018, from award-winning publisher Down and Out Books.

Now you can’t tell me that this doesn’t sound fan-freakin-tastic. With those authors and this concept, The Night of the Flood is sure to be a massive hit. I will update this post with pre-order links once they are available.
