What’s going down on 9/9/19?

Posted in Occult Detectives, Writing on September 6, 2019 by Occult Detective

Seventh Star Press & I are planning to have a cover reveal for the second book in my Liber Monstrorum series, Descendant, on Monday, September 9th.

Pre-orders for the ebook and trade paperback should follow closely behind if not in unison.

I am thrilled that the cover reveal will fall on the 9th day of the 9th month.

Nine is an important number to me. It’s magical. It symbolizes wisdom and initiation and the Nine Worlds of Norse Cosmology. And, more importantly, my son was born on the the 9th (of October).

Good omens all around that should serve Descendant well.

So, what is Descendant?

Descendant is a supernatural thriller filled with daring action, adventure, and artifice set against the backdrop of a very familiar world – but it is a world in which preternatural entities, clandestine magical orders, ancient bloodlines, and unholy alliances converge within the shadowed recesses of our darkest imaginings.

Federal Agents Selina Wolfe and Martin Crowe are called in to investigate a series of bizarre deaths in a small rural community. What first seems to be a misadventure involving black magic and satanic ritual soon takes on even more deleterious overtones, as the agents become embroiled in a plot by a sinister cabal intent on unleashing Hell on Earth.


If you’re an occult detective fan, then this book is for you. But don’t take my word for it:

“Descendant is like the bastard lovechild of The X-Files, H.P. Lovecraft, and Doctor Strange; and I mean that in the most loving way possible.”

— Erik Smith, The Monster Librarian

“Descendant is up there at the top my favourite paranormal investigation novels… the depth of occult knowledge that has been intertwined into the story is vast.”

— Jim McLeod, Ginger Nuts of Horror

“Between ancient bloodlines, unholy alliances and magical orders of great power, Freeman’s knowledge of dark magic and its history shows throughout every page.”

— Rodney Carlstrom, The Sci Fi Guys Book Review


Stay tuned… Monday should be exciting.
