Have you ever wanted to go back to the happiest moments of your life? Do you long for a certain period of time where you were overwhelmed with unbridled joy? That's pretty much what my book M'rth is all about. Of course, things don't go so well for our protagonist, who just so happens to share a lot of the same traits as me. Because that's what authors do, you know - for better or for worse.
Who am I? That's a pretty good question. My name's Todd Rigney, and if you're a horror fan, you might have heard about my disgusting novel Found, which was eventually transformed into an independent motion picture by Bloomington, Indiana, filmmaker Scott Schirmer. If you've landed on this page by accident and you're actually looking for the Found movie, then you can head over here for more info. There's also a spinoff movie, Headless, if you'd like to continue the Found experience.
M'rth is my first novella since 2004, which is a pretty long time in-between projects. I published an anthology, Twelve (Stories Concerning Love and Death), a few years ago, but it received about as much attention as Found did back in the day. As you can tell, I suck at the whole marketing thing.
Anyway, here's what M'rth is all about:
Happiness seems to elude reclusive writer Dylan Mercury on a regular basis. During his fruitless quest for contentment, Dylan stumbles across a drug called M’rth, a miracle pill that magically transports him to the happiest moment of his entire life. However, the longer he stays in the wonderful world of M’rth, the more his reality starts to change for the worse. When his loved ones begin to disappear one by one, Dylan realizes he needs to kick his addiction before it robs him of everything he holds dear.If that sounds like an impossibly good time, swing by Amazon and pick up a copy of M'rth. It's only 99 cents, which is a bargain. And if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can read the book for free right now. Should you feel the urge, leave a review - good or bad, it's greatly appreciated.
