Julia Stone’s past comes creeping back when she discovers a strange silver ring, and three men want to help her–but choosing the wrong one could cost not only her heart but her soul.


Dr. Pamela Forrest is determined to bring Julia’s memories to the surface, hoping to heal Julia’s panic disorder. The therapist keeps returning Julia to a night twenty-three years ago when Julia was four. A night of hooded figures, strange chants, pain, and blood. The night her father disappeared from the face of the earth.

But the line between the past and the present begins to blur when Julia finds a silver skull ring that bears the name “Judas Stone.” Someone is leaving strange messages inside her house, even though the door is locked. The handyman, who has a key, spends a lot of time in the woods behind her house. Her boyfriend Mitchell becomes distant and violent. And the cop who investigated her father’s disappearance has followed her to the small Appalachian town of Elkwood.

Now she has a head full of memories, but she doesn’t know which are real and which are the creations of Dr. Forrest. The shadows of Julia’s panic are growing larger and darker. But succumbing to madness seems safer than heeding the whispers that claim ownership of her body and soul.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Whether you’re a fan of dark fiction, thrillers, mysteries, the occult, or just damn fine writing, The Skull Ring is a fire and brimstone rush.


Nicholson’s masterly descriptive writing style creates a chilling tale set in a beautiful locale and pulls you into the story. You don’t want to miss this one by Nicholson; he demonstrates his ability to branch out into other genres in a tremendous way with this book.


If you like thrillers with a supernatural element then this is definitely the book for you. Well-written, perfectly paced and just an all-around exciting read, The Skull Ring scores high on my must-read scale. And I am really glad I have several more books by Scott on my Kindle ready to read as well.


Scott Nicholson’s strong and vivid writing draws the reader deep into the story, but it’s the writer’s deft handling of pace that makes this a winner for me. As the tension ramped up, I often found myself holding my breath. Yet at other times, I couldn’t help but smile at the gems of understated humor. The Skull Ring is a chilling, suspense-filled psychological thriller that will stay with me for a long time to come.

Highly recommended. I look forward to reading more from this author.

About The Author

I live in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and much of my fiction is based on mountain legends, local haunted places, and strange events. I was inspired by my grandmother’s storytelling, and have always written as long as I can remember. I also love art and music, and I’ve had the usual assortment of odd jobs: carpenter, dishwasher, sports card dealer, painter, radio announcer, journalist, and freelance editor.

My novels include the Kindle bestsellers Disintegration, The Red Church, Speed Dating with the Dead, and The Skull Ring, as well as eight other novels, including the urban fantasy Cursed! with J.R. Rain and the paranormal romance series October Girls. I’ve also created the comics Grave Conditions and DIRT and have written six screenplays, several of which are available on Kindle.

My web site has writing advice, fiction excerpts, art and samples from my comic books, my movie work, and numerous essays. I love to hear from people about my work, even if you don’t like it! My writing is a journey of faith and exploration, and I am always willing to tackle the big questions with an open mind and willing spirit. I believe we all have the opportunity to make this world a more beautiful, powerful, and peaceful place by embracing the mysteries and power of our hearts. I hope you’ll join me on the journey.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Scott Nicholson and ENT appreciate it.
