Spotlight on Anthony J. Rapino and Giveaway


Thank you for helping me celebrate my first blogiversary!! I will be hosting a giveaway ending at the end of this month. See all the great prizes and fill out the rafflecopter below!
As part of my giveaway, I am posting a spotlight each day for the rest of the month, showcasing a different contributor each day.

Author of the day is Anthony J. Rapino

Anthony J. Rapino resides in Northeastern Pennsylvania, somewhere between the concrete of the city and the trees of the forest. On occasion, you’ll find him moderating the feverish battles between the creatures of these two arenas. Whose side he’s on is anyone’s guess.
His debut novel, Soundtrack to the End of the World, is now available for purchase, as is his short story collection, Welcome to Moon Hill. Other published work can be found on his Work and Fiction in Print pages on his website. When in doubt, his newest fiction can always be found carved inside a variety of autumn gourds.

Anthony is the author of..

Soundtrack to the End of the World

A suicidal nudist strolls into traffic. An eccentric Buddhist claims he can occupy other people’s bodies. All the while, whispers of a new form of entertainment blow through town. Prompted by these strange occurrences, Marty Raft, a not-so-gentle giant, investigates and discovers underground clubs peddling music that induces an out-of-body experience. Marty and a wannabe comedian, Corey, set out to prove these special frequencies are nothing more than a hoax, or at worst, a mass-drugging.
Instead, they uncover a secret with world-ending possibilities.
If you can hear the music, it’s already too late.

Welcome to Moon Hill

Welcome to Moon Hill: A collection of 19 stories, and a few surprises.
Moon Hill is a forgotten place that few purposely visit, and even less leave. Once you arrive, the deep dark of the forest creeps into your mind and will not relent. Strange flowers that grow from deer carcasses, murderous lunatics, boxes with mysterious contents, talking ravens, wriggling parasites that induce eruptive confessions, and demons of every variety: they all live here too.
Even so, the residents of Moon Hill can feel, beyond the fear and distress, that this land is special and they are lucky to live here. Most everyone feels that way right up until the day they come a little too close to the magic of this place. When dusk’s light leaks through their carefully locked doors and rips holes in their minds.
Then, they pray for release.
—Welcome to Moon Hill.
