Sick of Me Yet?

I apologize for inundating you all with news over the past few weeks. I can read your minds, you know. Why don’t you just save it up and give it to us all at once? That’s what you’re thinking, isn’t it? I wish I could, but some of these tidbits are simply too cool to sit on and I absolutely have to share them with you. Others, like this announcement, are time-sensitive and it’s important to me for you to have the opportunity not to miss out.

So…it’s my pleasure to announce THE NARRATOR, a novella I coauthored with Norman Prentiss, whose mantel sags under the weight of all of his Bram Stoker Awards. Thunderstorm Books has produced limited-edition mini-hardcovers, signed by both authors, in two editions (the leather-bound is already nearly sold out!).

The Narrator eBook

Something is wrong with Julia Linder’s sixth grade class.

One boy’s harmless tendency of getting lost becomes a crippling fog of disorientation. A girl’s mild twitch turns into an obsessive pattern of frightened raps and repetition. The symptoms are spreading and the source seems to be stories that seize upon the children’s deeply seated fears and intensify them exponentially.

But how can mere stories change their behavior?

Abbie is a bright girl at the heart of the mystery. The others are inexplicably drawn to her and become increasingly devoted to her with each passing day. Is it possible that Abbie is manipulating her classmates and using their worst fears against them?

The secrets are locked in tales from the past, where only The Narrator can find them.
