Ken McKinley, head of the Goodreads group GORE and MORE. contacted me about being the guest author of their monthly group read. BECOMING will be April’s featured book, and in honor of such, I have lowered the eBook price to $2.99 for the entire month (starting today). The group read officially starts April 10th, so you should have plenty of time to finish up your current read (unless you’re re-reading IT). Join the group read HERE.
I will be in everyday checking on progress, answering questions, sharing stories and influences, and hopefully chatting it up with a number of you. If you have a copy already or pick up a discounted one, please come join the group and share your experience.
This story is a bit lighter on the gore, but the characters really shine through. If you’re a fan of movies like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Faculty, or books like The Tommyknockers or Video Night, I think you’ll have fun with this little creature-feature.
As an author, this is a very rare thing when we can actually be with you as you read. I’m excited. I love this story and hope to see you in the discussions.
“A vital part of this generation.” -Brian Keene, author of THE COMPLEX and THE RISING
Something ancient has wormed its way up from the earth….
A change has come today.
After Michele Cote’s best friend disappears, no one believes her story of about the thing responsible for his abduction. Forced to figure out the mystery for herself, Michele encounters terror she has never known, and witnesses the impossible.
When other members of the community begin to change or vanish, Sheriff Shane Davis must look beyond reason in order to stop the evil seeping into this small town. With help from an unlikely source, Sheriff Davis will come face-to-face with the truth.
You can’t destroy what you don’t understand. For the small town of Avalon, Maine, the future is about change…for better or worse.
Becoming is the next horrifying novel from author, Glenn Rolfe.
Praise for BECOMING
“Oh my…old-fashioned creature feature here, Becoming, is raw horror…” – The Haunted Reading Room
“The vibrations resonating through the words are equal part body snatcher, IT (on a much smaller scale) and Croatoan lore. Becoming is fast paced, constantly amped up, and hella fun.” – The Eyes of Madness
“Rolfe doesn’t hold back when it comes to gore and carnage. Several twists come out during the tale to further heighten the excitement, and bring forth an entirely new level of horror to contemplate.” – Horror After Dark
“Glenn Rolfe has done it again! Another fast-paced read from beginning to end, Becoming, shows that Rolfe is indeed, becoming a force to be reckoned with. I don’t know about you guys, but back in the day (early 70’s) when John Saul, Dean Koontz, and that other guy, Stephen King, were getting started in their horror writing careers, this was the type of story they would write and I would want to read.” – Horror Novel Reviews
“Family plays a vital role in underpinning Becoming‘s thematic nature and the character’s longing for stability in their interpersonal relationships. It’s good stuff!” – Michael Patrick Hicks, author of Revolver
“I was dying for an old school, creature feature. Well, author, Glenn Rolfe just filled that void for me. As in the manner of the“Body Snatchers” which is given a nod to in Becoming, that’s what you have going on in this mystery a “Hostile Takeover”. It was like watching a movie from late Saturday night, 1970 Chiller Channel. I loved it.” – Robin Lee’s Darkside
“Becoming is a creepy horror tale with depth. Rolfe has created characters you can root for, that you will care about. And underneath it all is a subtle yet powerful warning about blindly following others, a message that’s as timeless as it is timely.” – J.H. Moncrieff, author of City of Ghosts and The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave
“Becoming took me back to the horror books of my teens, to the creature features with cheesy covers that my love of horror was built on…” – Scarlet’s Web
“The monstrous and possessed finale crashes down on a furious wave of murky lake water and nasty green-eyed buggers looking to run the show. It’s quick. It’s bloody.” – Unnerving Magazine
