James Conrad is a best-selling writer of three novels, but during the writing of the third, his life took a downward spiral. He began drinking and his wife, Casey, left him. Now, in trying to write his fourth novel, he has total writer’s block. Lately, he’s been seeing a man who is all bones... a skeleton man.


One night, the whispering voice almost convinces him to kill himself. After he calls Casey in a terrified state, she joins him on a terrifying journey to discover two things: who or what is this skeleton man and, more importantly, can they stop him.

The Bone SpiritYou think the worst thing an author can face is Writer’s Block? Ever wondered why your favorite author is suddenly putting out less than stellar work? Maybe they are terrified to write or have figured out how to stay alive…they say The Pen is Mightier than the Sword.

When best-selling author James Conrad’s life hits some devastating bumps in the road, his creative well runs dry, but not before he is visited by an unearthly creature, a skeleton man who can overtake his thoughts and bring him to the brink of suicide. Is he losing his mind or is something really out to kill him? Are other writers having the same problem? How can they find out? Is it an ancient curse or some evil entity who thrives on the power of the creative word? Join James and Casey on their cross country race for answers from another author who has stopped turning out best sellers and now turns out trash. Authors are committing suicide in droves for decades, but why? Will the skeleton man be able to stop the truth from coming out or will the answer lie in strength in numbers and stories yet to be told?

The Bone Spirit by Chris Snider makes writer’s block look like the least of a good author’s problems when evil goes after the best of the best for its own nefarious purposes. A little quirky, a little spooky, definitely unique, I have to say Chris Snider has done a great job of entertaining with his storytelling abilities. Using a down and out author, who never was a starving artist, a past love he never got over and a wild imagination, from start to finish, this is a quick escape from reality, but has this author put himself in the cross-hairs of the skeleton man, too?

I received this copy from Chris Snider in exchange for my honest review.
