My novella Don’t Lose Your Head is free from today until Sunday! It’s a story that’s in the horror genre, just in time for Halloween.
The story came out of advice to write something you’re scared of. Plus, the idea behind the story lodged into my brain and didn’t let me go — until I got it all out. Thankfully, other ideas waited patiently on the side until I wrapped up this novella.
Now let me step to the side to tell you a little more what it’s about…
When you leave for a trip, who knows you’re gone from your house? Family and friends, sure. Neighbors, perhaps.
So does the chauffeur who drove you to the airport. Alan Tinsley takes advantage of working for a car service to know when clients will be away from their houses for several nights. Some houses are easier, since they don’t have a security system — and these houses are on his list for a night visit to steal valuables.
The Resnick house has been on Alan’s list for a while, and now it will be empty for a few nights, since Mr. and Mrs. Resnick are spending a long weekend in Chicago.
But is the house really empty? Alan’s about to find out what it’s like to not be alone in the house, his car, his apartment, and his head. And with another person in the house, hat will Alan do to avoid the police being called about him breaking in?
You have until the end of Sunday to scoop this up for free — you don’t even have to wear a costume and say, “Trick or treat.” I hope you enjoy the story.
