Title Of Book: A Greedy Shadow
Series: Glint & Shade Book 2
By: Eric Shane Love
Sub-Genre: Dark Fantasy, Coming of Age, Occult Horror
Milky light filtered through the skeletal limbs. The moist earth exhaled mist. The stone called. A boy answered. The boy always answered…but waiting there in the creek bed was a wet thing, vile and exposed. Open and hungry with lust.
Book two in the Glint & Shade series from Eric Shane Love. A reluctant hope, hungry darkness, and a haunting pact. Join Eliot as he learns to live outside the shadow of the Dark Wood.
Eliot survived his coming-of-age rite of passage, his kohlas . . . but dark things leave dark stains. Even as he is drawn to the safety he feels among new friends, he learns of another darkness: a shadow that is hungry with lust and greedy for him.
Nightmares plague him, a hideous band of cannibalistic barbarians are on the move, and Eliot doesn’t trust the hope he feels. But the worst part may be the secret scratching in the back of his mind: when will the woodsmen come for him?
For readers of the Dark Tower Series, dark fantasy, and gothic horror fiction, this is a satisfying fever dream of twisted characters set in the land of Glint & Shade.

Meet Eric Shane Love:
Since January 2016, I’ve been a freelance videographer, photographer and social media content creator. I live in a rural Georgia town about an hour and a half inland from Savannah. Before 2016, I worked nearly fifteen years at a small, non-profit youth home for troubled teenage boys. I was a mentor, educator and the creative director during that time. I’ve always had a love of writing. As early as sixth grade, I wrote stories about my classmates, passing them around the room to get feedback. A few random, interesting and trivial things to know about me: I’m in a band with my brother, Brian: Tiger Creek. I sing and play keys. I am a classically trained vocalist, though that has almost no bearing on the classic and 80s rock, and, less fortunately, the spattering of country songs we perform in the band. Halloween is my favorite holiday. Christmas is a close second. I have three dogs and a cat: Maddie, a 150-year-old basset hound, Bella, a mutt who gives me the best cuddles, and Hot Breath Eugene, an enormous pit/bull mastiff mix whose head looks like a basketball with eyes. Maddie is the Queen, Bella is the Princess, and Eugene alternates between being the Court Jester and the Village Idiot. The cat’s name is Chuck, and he is irreparably deranged. That’s why we love each other. He’s the Crazy Witch who lives in the forest outside the city walls, so to speak. All my pets are rescues. I also have about fifty plants in my house. I have a tendency to take much longer to tell a story than is necessarily required, and sometimes those stories don’t have endings. I get that from Debbie, my mom. Also, I hate technology.

Hey there! I’m Matt, a sci-fi and fantasy author.
Two years ago, you helped me publish the first book of the Spectra saga. Now, I’m here to publish book two!
Val and Note saved the galaxy from the Sensus, but they’ve since been separated from their friends by order of the Hegemony. On the eve of Ascension Day—a celebration of 3,000 years since the Chosen races were uplifted by the Sentinels—enormous Architect constructs suddenly awaken on the Planes and cause mass devastation.
Guided by an enigmatic messenger, Val, and Note know that only a mysteriously hidden Architect ruin known as the Eternity Vault has the power to stop them. But they’ll have to deal with vengeful bounty hunters, the political turmoils of an empire, interstellar tycoons, mysterious dream riddles sung by a people known only as the Forgotten, and more to find it.
“The Eternity Vault”, Book 2 of the Spectra saga, is ultimately more of the sci-fi and fantasy universe that you came to love in the first book. More characters to meet, more planets and worlds to see, more monsters to fear, more lore to unravel, and above all else, more story to enjoy!
