Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Blending spirituality and horror may seem a daunting task for some, but for Jonathan Ryan, who has spoken to thousands of people regarding faith and maintains a column on Dread Central—a widely respected online source for horror news—it is second nature. Jonathan credits summers with his grandmother, who allowed him to check out the scariest books from the library, for imbuing him with the respect and hunger for the paranormal that helped him to write this novel.
In addition to writing 3 Gates of the Dead, to be published by Premier Digital Publishing in both eBook and print on October 15, 2013, Jonathan has written for The Huffington Post, Christianity Today, The High Calling and the renowned interfaith blog site, Patheos.com. With this title gaining praise from fellow authors and reviewers, one can see how Jonathan’s in depth knowledge of both the church and the occult has helped to craft this narrative. In the same vein as other horror writers, Stephen King and Dean Koontz, who have successfully blended the dichotomy of faith in God and belief in his adversary—in true Evil, 3 Gates of the Dead also handles this delicate balance with a seasoned writer’s finesse.
“We love to be scared. We love myths, haunted houses and ghost stories; it’s in our nature. We also love Jonathan’s writing because he seamlessly blends theology, horror and suspense—unruly bedfellows at the best of times. We are happy to offer this tale of terror as part of our fall releases—which will be available in digital and print,” commented Thomas Ellsworth, CEO of Premier Digital Publishing.
"I didn't grow up on the slasher horror of Jason or Freddy. Instead, I listened to ghost stories around the fire, heard the hush tones of adults talking about the supernatural, and I remember thinking, 'I want to write stories like that someday,’” said Jonathan Ryan, author of 3 Gates of the Dead.'/>"/>
