    I got Pressure through Leisure Horror club and just finished it the other day. Loved it!! I immediately went to Amazon and bought three more of your books. Leisure sends you some dogs sometimes, but the good ones make it all worth while. Thanks for being one of the good ones! 🙂 Can’t wait for the others to arrive.


  3. Jim Says:

    Just finished Dweller. It was an amazing story, so well told. This was one of the most captivating reads I’ve had in years. Definitely some sad moments, but well worth it.

    Five stars!


  4. Adam Says:


    Finished Dweller today and f-ing loved it man! Great story! Definitely one of the tops I’ve read so far this year! Keep up the good writing man and I’ll keep reading!


  5. Linda Says:

    I just finished Dweller and I loved it. I just got it two days ago and could not put it down last night!!! Your writing style is funny and dark and captivating. I am going to buy Pressure next. Big fan!!!


  6. Bret Says:

    Just finished Dweller this evening and absolutely loved it. The best story I’ve read in a while…and that is saying a great deal as I’ve read a lot of good stories lately.

    Looking forward to reading Wolf Hunt later this month!


  7. Joe Konrath Says:

    Wolf Hunt was awesome.


  8. Caitlin Says:


    I found your books by being a faithful reader of JA Konrath/Jack Kilborn. One of the things I love about his books ( besides them being awesome!) is that they are available as ebooks. No wait, lower price, and incredibly convenient. I would have never read “Origin” if not for ebooks, and that is an amazing book!

    Anywho, I’ve now fallen in LOVE with your books and style of writing, only one problem! I can’t find the Mayhem series on Kindle! And I’m desperate! Do they exist?



    • jeffstrand Says:

      Thanks, Caitlin! The Mayhem books WERE available on Kindle, but not anymore. They’ll be back. Keep watching this space!


  9. Tim Says:

    Suggestion needed…I have a copy of “Pressure” and a copy of “Graverobbers Wanted” just sitting unread on my bookshelf. Which one should I read first?


    • jeffstrand Says:

      Set your bookshelf on fire for a few minutes, and whichever book has the least damage is the one you should read.


      • Tim Says:

        Done…you would be surprised how much trouble one can get in to by lighting their stuff on fire. Lets just say the first responders were not all that pleased with me 😦


  10. Kyle L. Says:

    But the question is, which one has the least damage!? My money is on the Mayhem novel…


    • Tim Says:

      It’s quite interesting because the books were basically equally destroyed. I’ve noticed that the first half of Graverobbers and the last half of pressure were undamaged. Being familiar with Jeff’s work I’m guessing I can combine the two books and come out with a story that’s at least as good as reading the books separately.


  11. K Says:

    Barnes and Nobles has a great variety/prices of Jeff Strand books for the ereader the more discerning readers own…the Nook Color! Owning one makes everyday seem like Christmas! 🙂


  12. celeste Says:

    What really struck me during my reading (and re-reading, because I enjoyed it so much!) of Wolf Hunt, was how perfectly it would translate onto the big screen. Any chance someone will buy the rights to make a movie? After all the Team Jacob crap, I’m ready for a film where werewolves are scary again!


  13. Dana Says:

    I read Pressure a couple weeks ago and it was wonderful. I just finished Dweller about 15 mins ago and I have to say it is one of the best novels I have ever read. It even made me cry-really. I was so moved that I had to post a shout out on my blog. I am going to buy and read the rest of your novels asap. Look forward to reading the Werewolf book and the Mayhem ones. I could go on gushing for a while, but I don’t want to be a kiss ass. You know what I loved about Dweller? that you kept it simple and told a straight forward story.As macabre as things got, the bond was really real to me and I guess that’s what moved me to tears. Owen and Toby-wow. The last scene…I hope I can get some of your books for kindle.


  14. Jessica Says:

    Your books are awesomely affordable. The cover too are so inviting to read. Gotta buy that Wolf Hunt. 🙂


  15. Kuvam Sama Says:

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d really
    appreciate it.


  16. anti snoring Says:

    Your style is really unique in comparison to
    other folks I’ve read stuff from. Thank you for posting when you’ve
    got the opportunity, Guess I’ll just bookmark this site.


  17. Erik Smith Says:

    It’s no Amazon review, but it’s something…


  18. mike lee Says:

    Hi Jeff, I still owe you some cash for the books. They were a big hit in the caddie room. I just moved to lakeland. Are you still in Tampa?

    I am soooooo excited about Wolf Hunt 2. I loved the original and just finished reading Dead Clown Barbeque. You had me laughing aloud, especially while reading The Severed Nose. You are an awesome writer!


  21. Danny Farham Says:

    Loved, loved, LOVED, Wolf Hunt. Can’t wait for the kindle release of Wolf Hunt 2. As soon as it’s released I’m gonna be on it like a tramp on a sandwich!


  22. Freddie Ferguson Says:

    Will Andrew Mayhem’s last book be available in print? I have all of them in kindle and the other 3 in paperback. I would love to add Shirley in paperback. Pretty please.


  23. Mika Says:

  24. Jennifer O'Hara Says:

    Jeff, you’re my new favorite author. I’ve literally only read Wolf Hunt and WH2, currently reading Dweller. You’re refreshing and you keep me hooked the whole book. Thank you so much and please, continue to publish. You rock, sir! I love horror. I’ve read wh1/2 in 2 days. Almost finished w Dweller. I just can’t stop. I can’t count how many times I’ve actually laughed out loud. Dweller, I’ve laughed and defitnitely almost cried. Your favorite new fan, Jenn


  25. Jennifer O'Hara Says:

    Omg. I just finished Dweller. So good and sad.


  26. Jennifer O'Hara Says:

    Damn you! Haha I had previously read Wolfhunt 1/2, and Draculas. Since Feb. 11th, I have read the following: Dweller, Pressure, Andrew Mayhem Series, Kutter, Cyclops, Kumquat, Faint of Heart, Elrod McBugle, and The Haunted Forest Tour. Not trying to boast over here but I love your books! At this rate, I’ll have read everything you have written in about a month and a half from now. I will be honest, I loved the idea of The Haunted Forest Tour but I just wasn’t fond of the characters. Everything else, just amazing. I just love that I lol’d reading your books. When George resisted the urge to shake the gasoline off his body like a dog, I died laughing. When Evan felt like the kid who got to pour the pumpkin mix into the crust while flinging rocks, hilarious as hell. When Maurde tells Seth to make him mad and pull his hair, Seth screams, “YOU MIGHT LIKE IT!” Knee-slapping hilarity!! Please continue writing or I may be the saddest individual on the planet. I’m not obsessive but Fear God I’m obsessed w your books! Yay! If you want to save me some cash, you could totally send me a JEFF Strand kindle gift card. Lol otherwise, Take my money!! Hahah
