PRLog - Aug. 29, 2014 - DENTON, Texas -- The shelves at the Denton public library have a new addition to their ranks. On your next visit, head on over to adult fiction, make your way past King and then back up a touch once you hit Pratchett. Keep an eye open for the bright yellow tag which proudly reads "Local Author."

Russ Linton's newly released novel, Crimson Son is now available for check out at all three branches of the Denton library system.
"I've been so happy with the local response to my book," says author Russ Linton. "Crimson Son has been available at Recycled Books for over a month now and sales have been strong. It's inspiring to know that people from Denton are interested in my work."
Crimson Son is already available to order at all major book retailers, but Linton wants to keep his home community a priority as well.
"There is so much local talent here in Denton. A great artistic community deserves to have easy access to the art that gets produced."
Linton goes on to say he is a strong supporter of local libraries. A product of the Denton North Branch Writer's Critique group headed up by horror author Annie Neugebauer and having served on public library boards in the past, he understands the importance of community access to information and how important it is for writers to make their work available, free of charge.
Linton hopes to see Crimson Son at other North Texas libraries soon, but for now, "I'll be happy with my hometown keeping it on display, though I secretly hope to not see it on the shelf next time I visit!"
About Crimson Son
With no powers of his own save a multi-tool, a quick wit and a boatload of emotional trauma, Spencer seeks to uncover his mother’s fate and confront his absentee father. As he stumbles through a web of conspiracies and top secret facilities, he rallies a team of everyday people and cast-off Augments. But Spencer soon discovers that the Black Beetle isn’t his only enemy, nor his worst.
About Russ Linton
In the fourth grade, Russ Linton wrote down the vague goal of becoming a “writer and an artist” when he grew up. After a journey that led him from philosopher to graphic designer to stay at home parent and even a stint as an Investigative Specialist with the FBI, he finally got around to that “writing” part which he now pursues full time.
Russ creates character-driven speculative fiction. His stories drip with blood, magic, and radioactive bugs. He writes for adults who are young at heart and youngsters who are old souls.
