Grey Skies by William Becker
Genre: Horror

Roman Toguri finds himself burying the body of a nun in Boone, North Carolina. As the skies darken and it begins to storm, he is forced to shove the corpse into his trunk and take it home for the night, unaware of the torment that playing God will bestow upon him. 

Enter Hell with two bonus short stories: The White Shade, an ultra-violent look into the mind of a mass shooter, and The Black Box, a psychedelic dive into weird horror.

A little conversation with the author -

1. What inspired you to write this book?
It actually came to me my freshman year, right before Weeping Of The Caverns was released. I sat next to this guy in class who had a flash drive full of music, porn, and movies, all of which he would show me on his laptop. I was reading a little bit of H.P. Lovecraft, so I was inspired to do something a little in his style. I and this guy were talking about Rob Zombie and his newest album, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser when I had this idea about a guy burying a nun.

Initially, there was going to be a giant monster wearing a scuba diving suit, kinda inspired by the Bioshock games. The “concept” of the plot and the basis of the story was still there, but my original idea was still there. The next thing I wrote for it was nearly a year later when I had joined Wattpad and had regained my inspiration. I posted a teaser that actually was from chapter three, The Velvet Couch, that scene with the spider eggs. It’s been making its rounds on some blogs across the internet, so it’s nice to see I’ve come full circle.

2. What can we expect from you in the future?
Expect variety more than anything. Currently, I have two horror books. One is a bit of a cult story, the other is super surreal. This certainly doesn’t mean that every book I pump out is going to be horror or even that weird. I write for me and I generally write based on what I’m interested in. Sure, I will always love horror, but I love experimenting, deep characters who are morally grey, and intense imagery. Everything I produce is a labor of love. I never half-ass my work or “sell-out.” If you go in with an open mind to my future stuff, you’ll be happy. If you just expect Grey Skies 2.0., I think you might have a hard time.

3. Who designed your book covers?
I took the photograph on the cover of Weeping Of The Caverns when I was only 12 years old. Grey Skies is also a photo taken me. Usually, I take a few hours to make my covers and make sure they fit what I’m looking for. I’m very passionate about making sure most of what I do is self-produced. I edit my books, write them, design the interiors, and make the covers. It’s all me, at least for now.
