Sign up for my Tao of Boo newsletter for giveaways, free books, and announcements of new releases:

I believe the writer only creates half the story, and that you complete it by bringing your imagination, experience, and heart to the tale. I am happy to share the journey with you.

I've written more than 20 novels, about 80 short stories, four children's books, some comic books, screenplays, and a couple of non-fiction books, as well as five collaborations with J.R. Rain. Many of my tales are based on supernatural legends from the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and I also write mystery and suspense thrillers that are most often compared to the work of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

I've also published Liquid Fear and Chronic Fear with Amazon's Thomas & Mercer imprint and McFall with 47North, as well as a number of audiobooks and foreign translations. I love hearing from you, because you're the reason I do this, so let's connect! Learn more about my work at

Awesome awesome book! Just what I've come to expect from Scott Nicholson.

I have this habit of trying to picture different scenarios in my head as I'm reading to see where an author is going with the storyline. Then I get my aha! I thought that was going to happen somewhere down the road.

I had no idea where Scott was going when I started this and I couldn't figure it out until I read it when I got to that point in the story. I hope Scott takes this as a complement when I say this book was so strange, but a great strange. I knew there was something going on with the food because Roby was fixated with food, but I never would have guessed what actually was behind the food. This was one of those, keep turning the page (or clicking the next button on my Kindle), don't put it down until you're done type of books.

This book starts out at the sitting for Jacob Ridgehorn and continues on through the viewing and the funeral. All of it revolving around Roby and the food and his thoughts on proper funeral procedure, which was actually kind of interesting. Tell me you haven't done it? Been in a somber situation, not able to believe the behavior of some who are there? He does give them leeway in his mind because they are grieving.

He sits through the bickering and manages to get everyone to eat the pie. What's in the pie? I can't tell you. You will never ever think of it yourself though.

I said this in my review of The Red Church, but I'll say it again. Scott Nicholson reminds me of some of the greats, Stephen King, Dean R Koontz, etc. This reminded me of some of Stephen King's shorter story. Not in the writing style, because that is all Scott's wonderful style, but in the suspense category.

Burial to Follow is the kind of fascinating story I have come to expect from Scott Nicholson: intriguing, suspenseful plot, vivid details, and an insightful depiction of human motives, yearnings, and desires. The perfect blend of real and surreal elements, of the macabre and the humorous makes for a delightful read. Scott's stories and novels have a local, Southern flair (and if you are interested in delicious Southern food, this is the story for you) but speak to readers everywhere. The mixture of true sorrow, barely contained greed, and hypocrisy which is part of so many family funerals and inheritance battles rings true, no matter where you live. And what a surprise ending! But for that you have to read the story.

Literally. Scott reminds me very much of another author with similar work ethics. Hmmm. =) He is quickly becoming one of our most prolific authors. Keep it up Scott!

A death in the family is often a traumatic event, with all of the surviving family members flocking to support each other -- and to assure themselves that nobody gets a better hand-me-down than the others. This Southern novelette tells about one such country family, concerned with the fate of the tractor, the old plowhorse, the Japanese rifle, and more, with less concern given to the grieving widow.

As a courtesy to the grieving family, food is dropped by, until there is such a quantity that no one could consume it before it spoiled in the summer heat. Every good cook in the area is known for a particular dish, and by the same token, there are some dishes one learns to avoid. There is a very special pie melting into goo on the table, and it has to be eaten...or does it?

Ultimately it's a story about an extended family dealing with a life-changing event. Is the presence of a graveyard on the family farm going to be a problem in the future? Will the widow be able to manage on her own?

And then there's that unusual pie...

I found this story on my e-reader so had no idea what it was about when I started reading. It turned out to be a very well written story and exactly the kind of tale I enjoy. You know something strange is going on but you aren't quite sure what that is. Some stories lag at this point but this one compelled me to read on to the end. Without giving too much away, the characters are surprisingly well rounded, the dialogue is smooth and easy, the plot pretty original, and the conclusion satisfying. I'll definitely read more by this author.

Roby Snow seems to like to hang around wakes, even those of people he barely knows. He helps the family in this time of grief, makes small talk, arranges the myriad of food that people bring, and he's oddly obsessed with making sure everybody gets a piece of pie. Why pie? Oh, you'll find out.

Much of the pleasure of this book is in the description of the relationships in a southern family. They grieve for the loss of a husband and father, but not so much as to forget their concerns with who inherits an old tractor, a plow horse, and other items. Family members argue, they vie for positions, discuss things that seem odd to be voiced in front of the widow (and BY the widow) - yet at the same time they check to see that proper wake protocols are being followed.

This all seems so real. Yet it is juxtaposed with the surreal in the story of Roby. Roby has sold his soul to the devil and part of the pact is to make sure the family mourners eat a piece of this special pie.

The story was very strange, but in a good way. I couldn't figure out where it was going until I got to the "ah ha!" moment. And then I still couldn't figure it all out!

Interesting premise, but I was left wanting more details about the pacts with the devil. But maybe that was what Scott Nicholson intended. Still, a good short read. (More, please!)
