My newest release: The Carousel in the Sky

I am excited to announce that my third novel, The Carousel in the Sky, is out! I am pretty excited about this one. The dark fantasy novel is based on a dream that had a couple years back. In the dream, I was in a forest staring up at a mansion that had a carousel revolving around its sharply pitched roof, like a crown.

The novel is a grand adventure, a terrifying journey into a secret world ruled by evil men… in the midst of which we find Alex just trying to find his lost friend. Not a simple task at all.

This is the publisher’s blurb: In the middle of a forest of oaks, a mansion sits, inviting the young and old to explore its depths. On top of the mansion, a carousel, but not just any carousel, this one holds secrets that are soon to be unlocked.

Devil’s Nightmare (Book 1)

Detective Aaron Sanders’ abilities and fortitude are put to the test when he investigates a brutal double-homicide where a boy’s parents are found mutilated inside their home. The boy is the only witness to the crime and his clothes are stained with his parents’ blood. His clothes are also tainted with the blood of other victims from a separate and even more horrific crime scene at a nearby cemetery. All of the victims appear to have been killed in the same manner and the boy knows the true identity of the evil responsible for the multiple deaths, but he is unwilling to talk. No one would believe him. A threat on the boy’s life and a disturbing nightmare causes Detective Sanders to question his beliefs and his own sanity. This investigation ultimately leads Sanders in a fight to save himself and the life of an orphaned boy from an unimaginable evil that is spawned from the curse of the Devil’s Nightmare.

** Available on Amazon (US), Amazon (UK) and Barnes & Noble **

Devil’s Nightmare: Premonitions (Book 2)

Sequel to the Amazon bestselling horror Devil’s Nightmare, Robert Pruneda brings fans of the first novel another horrific thriller full of twists, chills, and a shocking conclusion. Two years have passed since Aaron Sanders retired from the Austin Police Department after what the media has called The Saint Hedwig Massacre. He moves his family out of the capital city to start a new life as a small town cop in Lost Maples, Texas, where the population count is updated more often than the murder rate. That bit of reputation is about to change when Aaron is once again caught in the middle of a mysterious investigation that has an eerie familiarity. This time, however, he is certain what is responsible for the violent deaths . . . Or is he? Evil knows no boundaries and it is up to Aaron to figure out how to protect the residents of his community, and his family, from becoming its next victims.

** Now available on Amazon (US), Amazon (UK) **

Paperback also available at Barnes & Noble.
