NEWPORT BEACH, CA, July 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- On July 29, 2014, author, Michael Hebler releases the latest installment in his Chupacabra Series. Legend of the Chupacabra
, Book III in the 6-part series, is the final chapter of an independent trilogy before the narrative of the infamous "goat-sucker" transitions into new and thrilling territory.
Synopsis: Jessie and Suzanne live peacefully in Portland, Oregon six years after they believed to have put an end to the curse of the chupacabra. But the women come to learn of their failure, and the futility of their sacrifices, when a remarkable reunion brings horror back into their lives; only this time, what they face will be unlike any creature they've encountered. Legend of the Chupacabra
marks the end of a trilogy, but the continuation of a saga that will leave this moment of history drenched in blood.
Earlier this year, Hebler's first volume, Night of the Chupacabra
, earned him top honors in the category of "Horror" from the National Indie Excellence Awards. The NIEA was founded by Ellen Reid, the current President and CEO. Reid comments, "The awards celebrate the best of books in print, and represent a diverse group of first-time authors and seasoned authors." Hebler was extremely honored to have received such extraordinary recognition for his passion project.
In reference to Legend of the Chupacabra
, Hebler hopes his fans and readers will enjoy their reunion with Jessie and Suzanne. There is no shortage of action, mystery, humor, drama, romance, or, of course, horror. And as usual, there are surprises around every turn. "I'm especially excited about including a little piece of Oregon's scandalous history with the Portland underground, which some also know as the 'shanghai tunnels'" states Hebler. "I think that particular element rivals the callousness of the chupacabra itself and examines man and his inner beast."
In addition to the release of Legend of the Chupacabra
in trade paperback and eBook on July 29, 2014, Hebler will also release an audiobook of his reading, which will accompany the release of the audiobooks of the first two series novels as well: Night of the Chupacabra
and Curse of the Chupacabra

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Prior to becoming an award-winning author of his dark fiction Chupacabra Series, Hebler worked as a full-time international film publicist on multiple titles for Walt Disney, Pixar, Lionsgate, Lakeshore Entertainment, Warner Bros., Summit Entertainment, as well as the 2013 Academy Award Winning Best Foreign Language Film, "La grande bellezza" (The Great Beauty).
Born in the early 1970's in Los Angeles County to a salesman and a homemaker, Hebler dreamed of following his passions for entertainment and storytelling by becoming an actor. It was while studying theatre arts at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California, that he realized his penchant for stories was better suited on the page than on the stage. However, creating tales with suspense, laughter, and heart is not Hebler's only love. He also enjoys volunteering in his local community for Meals on Wheels, as well as aiding in the capture/spay/neuter/release feral program.
To date, Michael's publications include Night of the Chupacabra
and Curse of the Chupacabra
(Chupacabra Series Books I & II) and his first publication, The Night After Christmas
, a holiday picture book for believers of any age.
