The Book of Paul has been well received by reviewers who enjoy dark thrillers.
“Intelligent, self-aware, and often amusing, while hitting all the markers for sadistic, salacious, and scary. Written in short cinematic bursts from multiple viewpoints, The Book of Paul…weaves in and out of the realm of alchemy, mythology, and ancient arcana. No ordinary writer of horror…Richard Long is doubtless going to build a large and loyal fan base composed of people just like him: literate folks with a bizarre sense of humor who prefer salsa to sugar, red meat to broccoli, and a bucket of blood to a bath filled with rose petals. They will be waiting for the next installment.”
— ForeWord Clarion Reviews (Five Star Review)
“Totally absorbing! The Book of Paul is moving, profound, funny, terrifying and never lets you go. The prose is swift and sharp…at times, even poetic. Masterful storytelling. Hats off!!” -Henry Bean, writer/director of THE BELIEVER
“Elegantly written and original, Richard Long’s The Book of Paul…is so suspenseful and entertaining that I could not it put down, reading late into the night, wondering what the next chapter would bring. I strongly recommend it. The reader will not be disappointed.” — James H. Cone author of THE CROSS AND THE LYNCHING TREE
“I was greatly impressed. It is extremely hard, if not impossible, to put down.” -Michael Rips, Author of PASQUALE’S NOSE
“Twisted, outrageous, relentless — you won’t want to miss The Book of Paul.” -Greg Lichtenberg, author of PLAYING CATCH WITH MY MOTHER

If you feel this book is a good fit for your readers, please email my publicist at Leah@NovelPublicity.com and she’ll make sure to send you a review copy and/or a post to set up on your site that week. Please let her know what review version you prefer, as well as what date between August 6-10 might work for you to feature The Book of Paul. (If you’re interested in reviewing The Book of Paul, but can’t have it ready by that week, no problem. If you’d like to review later, and feature my book in another kind of post that week, that would be fine.)
Here is a brief summary of The Book of Paul:
“Never alive…and never dead…”
In the rubble-strewn wasteland of Alphabet City, a squalid tenement conceals a treasure “beyond all imagining”—an immaculately preserved, fifth century codex. The sole repository of ancient Hermetic lore, it contains the authentic alchemical rituals for transforming thought into substance, transmuting matter at will…and attaining eternal life.
When a lusty, East Village tattoo artist has a torrid encounter with a battle-hardened loner, they are overwhelmed by the intensity of their feelings. Rose and Martin soon discover they are unwitting pawns on opposing sides of a battle that has shaped the course of human history. At the center of the conflict is Paul, the villainous overlord of an underground feudal society, who guards the book’s occult secrets in preparation for the fulfillment of an apocalyptic prophecy.
The action is relentless as Martin and Rose fight to escape Paul’s clutches and Martin’s destiny as the chosen recipient of Paul’s sinister legacy. Science and magic, mythology and technology converge in a monumental battle where the stakes couldn’t be higher: control of the ultimate power in the universe—the Maelstrom.
