Hi all and welcome to another Indie Author Showcase. The star of today’s showcase is author Erik Therme and his new novel “Roam”!
Getting to know the book:
When Kevin finds Sarah stranded by the side of the road, he’s more than willing to give her a ride. Young, beautiful and distraught—she’s everything a single guy could ask for in a girl. What he doesn’t know is that she already has a guy: an abusive, drunken boyfriend who left her there in a fit of rage. And when that boyfriend comes back and finds Sarah missing, a simple ride will turn deadly.
Like Josh Gaylord and Daniel Kraus before him, author Erik Therme explores the angst of disconnected youth in his enthralling and powerful Roam. Therme’s darkly tinged novel is an unforgettable tale of three errant souls brutalized by life’s cruel circumstances, and a remarkable night of discovery and violence that will change them forever.
Getting to know Erik:
- I’m a semi-compulsive organizer and can easily spend hours making spreadsheets, lists, or reorganizing the nooks and crannies of our house.
- My favorite novel is The Stand by Stephen King. King’s character development is always excellent, but there’s no question he raises the bar with this one.
- My biggest (writing) fear is that I’ll fail my readers by producing sub-par work
5 Star Reviews for “Roam”
‘Therme is gifted in creating suspense-filled tales. When you think you know what’s going to happen, it doesn’t, and when you least expect it, watch out. A banal car breakdown brings together three young lost souls whom society would consider losers, all searching for acceptance and meaning in their lives. Their experience that night, the night of Sarah’s birthday, will define their futures. And the ending… wait for it!’
‘Difficult to express how much I love this totally perfect, compactly-written, story. I loved it, loved it, loved it, finished it wanting to read it again immediately, and yes, it was a one-session straight readthrough. I’ve read the author’s earlier books, MORTOM and RESTHAVEN, and enjoyed them immensely, so I leaped to read ROAM, which blew me away with its entertainment value combined with thrills, suspense, deep human emotions, mild violence (primarily offscreen), date abuse, familial psychological abuse, and so much else. This was akin to standing before a painting in a museum and watching it come to life and portray a vignette of life. ROAM is excellent. Don’t miss it.’
‘This is my third novel I have read by Erik Therme and I loved it the most. I read this in one night. There was no way that I was going to put this down. The twists I did not see coming. It keeps you right on the edge and guessing throughout the entire novel. The characters are well developed. Anyone would be a fool to pass this novel up!’
