Announcing The Scary Tales Internet Tour 2015

Scary Tales Internet TourIn a couple weeks, I’m launching a super intensive two-week Internet Tour featuring guest blog posts, interviews, podcasts, giveaways, character interviews, and some more fun surprises!

Please check out the full schedule now posted here on my website.

One of the highlights of the tour for me will be on Wednesday, May 20th when my own 9-year-old daughter Anna interviews one of my favorite characters from The Scary Tales: Queen Adara. I think you’ll be impressed with Anna’s keen interview skills.

I’m also hugely excited to be featured on one of my favorite horror news sites,, where The Scary Tales will be reviewed on Monday, May 18th and I’ll later be interviewed on Thursday, May 28th.

Next week, I’ll be making a major announcement about a fun new contest to be held in conjunction with the tour. Stay tuned!

New Giveaway Contest: Signed Set of That Risen Snow/That Wicked Apple

Book Giveaway!Next month, I’m launching a massive Internet Tour in which I’ll be doing all manner of interviews, guest blog posts, giveaways, contests, podcasts, and more. I’ll post the schedule soon. So, this month I wanted to do a book giveaway contest that’s a little different.

First, the prize:

One lucky winner will get an autographed set of the first two books in The Scary Tales Series—That Risen Snow and That Wicked Apple.

Two paperbacks. Two autographs. Seven dwarfs. One zombie Snow White. Countless thrills.

Entering is easy. All you need to do is:

1) Leave an honest review of one or more of my Scary Tales books on The more reviews you leave, the more entries you receive. So, if you review all four of The Scary Tales books currently available, then you’ll get four entries in the contest.

2) Report your number of reviews to me via social media by midnight (EST) on Sunday, May 3rd, either by:

Ex Tweet: Just reviewed two #TheScaryTales books by @robboley on Amazon & they’re the best things I’ve ever read ever in all the history of ever-ness.

Simple as that! And since the ebook of That Risen Snow is currently on sale for free on most major retailers, including Amazon, no purchase is necessary. For those of you who already left reviews prior to the start of this contest, no worries! As long as you report the reviews this month, they still count!

And please be honest with your reviews. Only give the books as many stars as you think/feel/estimate/know they deserve after reading the books.

Okay, what are you waiting for? Stop reading. Go review me! Assess me! Rake my writing self over the red-hot Amazonian coals. Just be nice about it.

UPDATE: Congratulations to Rachel Menzies for winning this contest!

That Risen Snow Now Free on Amazon!

Darker PagesSometime last week, Amazon dropped the price of That Risen Snow ebook to FREE, probably to match the free price over on iTunes. That’s right! You can now try out the first book of The Scary Tales free of charge!

Get it now at!

No Kindle? No problem. The Kindle app is free online.

Since the ebook went on sale, it’s had over 1,000 downloads! Here are a few excerpts from some reader reviews posted recently on Amazon:

“This is a unique take on Snow White. She is not the sweet innocent fairytale character you once knew. I picked up this book, and within pages I was hooked. Also, it was nice, because Rob Boley did not break his story into tiny pieces like some Kindle authors, where you never have a satisfying story without paying for more. This is actually a decent length story. I can’t wait to read the sequel.” – Reader in Des Moines, IA

“A great take on the traditional Snow White story. Can’t wait for the second book!” –  Reader in Pendleton, SC
“It’s been a while (years), since I read a book, where I couldn’t stop reading. The combination of two well known elements melts brilliantly into a very original story, which is so compelling and imaginative, that you just HAVE to finish the book.” – Reader in Denmark
Check out That Risen Snow, now free on Amazon! And may you read happily ever after…
