The Toothache Man Cometh

In a few days Sal Conte's The Toothache Man will be available for ereaders: Kindle, Nook and ipad.  Just in time for Halloween. I want to thank my friends at White Whisker Books for helping me get the Sal Conte titles out there.  I don't have the patience or the technical where-with-all to self publish.  But White Whisker was so happy with Boyfriend From Hell, Earth Angel, and our relationship in general, that they agreed to help get the work out there--and not for their normal splits, either.  I must say my royalty split with White Whisker is quite generous, but the deal they made with Sal Conte is even better.  He must have made them an offer they couldn't refuse.  hehe.

I am really proud of the story.  Fans of horror thrillers will find it fun and surprising.  Wanna know more? Check out the blurb below:

There is no pain like toothache pain

Jim Roberts is a victim of today's economy. While he's lucky enough to have a job, his job has been keeping him temp for two years to avoid paying medical benefits. When Jim gets a terrible toothache, a friend tells him about The Toothache Man, an unlicensed dentist where people like Jim can have their dental problems solved for a song. Unfortunately, The Toothache Man turns out to be a lot more than Jim bargained for—with an old fashioned dentist’s chair, and a penchant for pain.  Jim is about to discover a toothache is the least of his problems.

The Toothache Man clocks in at just over 5300 words. Long enough for you to read in one hair-raising sitting.  The price is only 99c.  Pretty damned inexpensive for a Sal Conte original, if I do say so myself.

By the way, Sal Conte has his own Twitter account now, where he's constantly carping about me.  You can follow him here:



  1. I am a new follower from Book Blog. Pls follow back. Growing Old With Grace

  2. That's not right. All dentists should acquire a proper license before practicing professionally. Get to know the dentist more before you visit his/her clinic.

  3. Most people don't think about toothaches until they actually get one, and then they will do just about anything to get ride of the toothache pain. Most toothache pain is sharp, throbbing, shooting, or constant. In rare cases if the tooth is not properly treated, it will eventually have to be extracted. So with that being said how can someone treat a toothache at home with natural home remedies?
