Icarus Radio Spot

Since the story of Icarus takes place in the 1940s, somehow making a big fancy trailer didn’t seem appropriate. Instead, I’ve put together this little radio spot to capture the essence of the era. I hope you enjoy it!

What Readers Are Saying About Icarus

After two weeks on the market, I couldn’t be more thrilled about the reception Icarus is receiving. The book currently has a five-star average rating on Amazon, and many readers have taken the time to write me and share even more detailed thoughts. I love it!

Based on the feedback I’ve received, Miller Brinkman seems to have resonated with readers. His character has drawn multiple comparisons to Indiana Jones, which is flattering. Readers have also expressed their satisfaction with “the twist.” I can’t say anything more about it without spoiling the surprise, but needless to say, Icarus doesn’t finish the way you think it’s going to. 🙂

But, hey! Writing is all about showing versus telling, so here’s just a few of the comments readers have left about Icarus:

Icarus Available Now

The wait is over: Icarus is out now and available in both Kindle and paperback format. I couldn’t be more excited to share this story with you!

Icarus is a mystery with a sci-fi twist. I tend to think of it as Dick Tracy meets the X-Files.  It’s a mixture of 1940s noir,  coupled with the paranoia that swept the nation in the 1960s. A reader once said, “Imagine a Sam Spade novel as written by Phillip K. Dick,” and I couldn’t ask for a greater compliment than that.

I came up with the idea for Icarus a little over six years ago, and it’s been a long journey full of false starts and detours to reach this point. After many rounds of revision to get it right, I’m so proud of the final result, and I hope that you will enjoy it.

In celebration of today’s launch, please enjoy the first two chapters below with my thanks.

The Hulegaard Books Podcast is Back!

After a very long hiatus, I’m pleased to announce that the Hulegaard Books podcast has returned. It most likely won’t become a weekly fixture as it once was, but my goal will remain the same: To bring you compelling conversations with some of the sharpest minds in the literary field.

My first guest is none other than the illustrious Tony Healey, the best-selling author of Hope’s Peak. In this episode, Tony and I discuss his journey to traditional publishing, and the aftermath of success. Check it out below!

The Mystery Begins…

It’s official: Icarus is coming to Kindle and paperback on January 27th, 2017!

It’s the winter of 1947 in Ashley Falls, West Virginia, and a teenage girl has gone missing. Local private detective Miller Brinkman takes the case, quickly uncovering a string of bizarre clues. A hidden diary, cryptic riddles, and buried secrets all pique Miller’s interest, but one key detail gives him pause: the girl’s parents haven’t reported her disappearance to the authorities.

As the case deepens, Miller’s investigation begins to poke holes in the idyllic picture of his beloved hometown. No longer certain whether anyone in his community can be trusted, Miller dives headfirst into a desperate search for the truth that extends far beyond the borders of Ashley Falls. He soon discovers that his missing persons case is not an isolated incident, but part of an otherworldly mystery—one that, if confronted, may threaten the very future of humanity.
