Coming soon...

Coming in October...


Terry Winters is alone. Her father died three months before her birth. Her mother followed, dying in childbirth. The grandmother that raised her and taught her everything about life died two years ago. She has lived in the small town of Bullock her entire life. She lives a boring life in a town that has...secrets. And things are about to change...

It was a dark and stormy night...

And Teresa was unhappy as hell about having to take that twenty-block walk home alone in the icy storm with the full moon obscured by black clouds and no friend to keep her distracted. She wasn't superstitious. But the thought of climbing that hill and passing the Old Bullock Cemetery in the dark wasn't something she relished. She wasn't afraid to walk alone...but she truly hated the dark. Things went bump in the dark, and weird shit happened on the full moon in Bullock.

She wasn't worried about getting mugged, because ghosts didn't mug you. And ghosts were about the only things hanging out in the old cemetery in Bullock these days. There hadn't been a major crime in the sleepy little town in over fifty years. Spooky urban legends abounded, but the only bad guys in Bullock now were buried six feet under in the damp earth of the Old Cemetery.

About the only thing she feared at this point was that cracked, broken sidewalk she had to traverse...and maybe freezing to death when the storm came on full force.

She shivered as a hound howled a soulful lament to the hidden moon...

I always wanted to start a book with that corny phrase...and this was the perfect chance. :) I pulled this novella out of my old horror stash, and steamed it up a bit.  The perfect setting for an October full moon read.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, writing it.

Hugs,

Fran Lee
