Black Veil by Greg Jolley

 

Murder and Madness in the High Sierras

The tragic and gruesome story of the Donner Party is being made into a movie, a tale of cannibalism and treachery high in the snowbound mountains. The cast is made up entirely of children. One by one, they are dying. The series of deaths are haunting the production, each one of the “accidents” at the hands of Florentino Urbino. Driven by greed and jealousy, he is killing off the film’s stars to line his pockets by selling off the gruesome footage of the accidents.

Six-year-old actress SeaBee Danser in her black veil is his next target. She is the only one who can see through the black curtain that Florentino Urbino drapes over his deranged and murderous heart.

Can she survive?

Can he be stopped?

Will any of the children be left standing?

Danser Suspense Novels by Greg Jolley

Danser Newsletter for January, 2020

Hello and here’s wishing you a fine new year.

Since View Finder was launched, it has been very well received. It’s great to see BB Danser’s twisted story welcomed with such warmth.

Here are two recent reviews:

“Takes Fiction to a New Level

This is a brilliant experimental take on fiction. Each section functions as a riveting scene, unapologetic, brutal, nightmarish, dizzying, compassionate. BB Danser, the protagonist, is at once servile, cunning, driven, victimized, and heroic. A compelling read, which I accomplished in one sitting. Jolley’s work is impossible to put down.”

~ Elizabeth Randall, author of Murder in St. Augustine: The Mysterious Death of Athalia Ponsell Lindsley (True Crime)

 


”…reads like a Luis Buñuel screenplay adaptation of a Shirley Jackson novel by way of Sigmund Freud, digs into the reader’s forebrain and refuses to go away.” 

~ LibraryThing Early Reviewers

In other news, View Finder has also been nominated for a 2020 Pushcart Prize. A book tour is in the plans, along with a blog tour. I’ll be getting the details to you as soon as they are finalized.

My next book, The Collectors, is scheduled to launch in 2020. This is the second novel to feature Pierce Danser, caught up in a menagerie of horrors while he tries to rescue his soon to be ex-wife, the actress Pauline Place, from the clutches of a deadly and mad collector bent on adding her to his gruesome museum.

 

I am currently editing Kazu Danser’s second novel, The Deadly Kazu, for release later this year. When that wraps up, I’ll be starting the write of Izzy, the fourth book in the Maison de Danse Quartet. Much of this book involves the real-life pursuit and capture and trial of Joey Bova, who murdered Zuheily Roman Rosado. Most all the research is completed and I’m eagerly looking forward to this write, exploring the nuances of justice.

I hope you’re enjoying the Danser novels. I’d love to hear from you.

All the best,

Greg

This is a brilliant experimental take on fiction. Each section functions as a riveting scene, unapologetic, brutal, nightmarish, dizzying, compassionate.

A Brilliant Demise: The Strange World of the Dansers—VIEW FINDER by Greg Jolley

Greg Jolley’s fictional Danser family blends eccentricity and brilliant obsession in the world of movie making—a family often described as a blend of J.D. Salinger’s Glass family and The Addams Family.

LIVONIA, Mich. Nov. 14, 2019 PRLog — Meet the Dansers: an eccentric family with a dash of brilliant obsession and often visionary madness. In View Finder, BB Danser, the patriarch of the eccentric and zealous Danser family, narrates his life story.

“I’m often asked why I write about one family,” says author Greg Jolley. “It’s like owning a film studio in the 1950s and I have my own delicious cast members to choose from. Most of the Dansers work in the movie industry and are known for passions and obsessions. They live far outside the norms, preferring to pursue their own ambitions and goals, living in stark contrast to everyday normal behavior.”

View Finder takes place during Hollywood’s Golden Age of greed, corruption, and scandal. The son of the famous actress Elizabeth Stark, BB Danser is caught in the middle of his parent’s tumultuous relationship and his father’s crushing megalomania and jealousies. Desperate to escape, he becomes obsessed with movie cameras and cinematic storytelling. A roller coaster story of hope and vision, BB searches for the truth about himself and his family in a world of industrialized fantasy making.

Praise for View Finder“…reads like a Luis Buñuel screenplay adaptation of a Shirley Jackson novel by way of Sigmund Freud, digs into the reader’s forebrain and refuses to go away.” —LibraryThing Early Reviewers

REALITY…

IS IN THE MIND OF THE BEHOLDER

BB Danser, the patriarch of the eccentric and zealous Danser family, narrates his life story in View Finder. Set during Hollywood’s Golden Age of greed, corruption, and scandal, his memoir is one of madness, passion, murder, and his desperate, lifelong effort to escape the confines of real and modern life.

The son of the famous actress Elizabeth Stark, BB is caught in the middle of his parent’s tumultuous relationship and his father’s crushing megalomania and jealousies. Desperate to escape, he becomes obsessed with movie cameras and cinematic storytelling, becoming transfixed with the question: Is it better to view or be viewed?

A roller coaster story of hope and vision, BB searches for about himself and his family in a world of industrialized fantasy making.
