Writer/Director Eric Red Releasing His First Novel - Don't Stand So Close

Most horror fans know the name Eric Red, writer of The Hitcher and Near Dark and writer/director of Bad Moon and 100 Feet. Now he's published his first novel, Don't Stand So Close, due out on July 1st.

From the Press Release:
Every teenage boy’s wildest fantasy becomes his worst nightmare in this provocative erotic thriller debut novel from one of Hollywood’s masters of suspense. SST Publications has announced the worldwide publication in trade hardcover, trade paperback, and eBook of famed motion picture screenwriter and director Eric Red’s first novel, the dark coming-of-age story about teenagers Don’t Stand So Close.

Publisher Paul Fry says: “From the very first time I read Don’t Stand So Close, I was hooked. It’s excellently written, erotic, exciting, and compelling. The book draws you in and doesn’t let you go until the very end. Eric Red’s writing is very descriptive and atmospheric, and once the book has you in its grip, it’s very hard to let go.”

When handsome 17-year-old Matt Poe moves to a rural town in Iowa, he is the new kid in school. An outsider who can’t fit in, his only friend is his beautiful and sympathetic teacher, Linda Hayden. The older woman is the first to take an interest in him, helping him adjust to the community and keep his grades up. Matt can’t help falling hard for Linda, and what begins with a kiss becomes a torrid, secret affair. But his teacher is a lot more than he bargained for, and the kid’s wildest dream becomes his worst nightmare. The only people who can save Matt are his two classmates Grace McCormack and Rusty Shaw. But the three of them are in way over their heads against an evil adult trying to make sure they stay after class permanently.

I like the allusions to the Police, since "Don't Stand" is one of my favorite songs, but the plot sounds kind of boring. I'll wait for reviews before digging in to this.
