Although I don't usually blog on Tuesdays, I have great news. Through April, I plan to leave Once Upon a December Nightmare free. That's right! You can download the second edition of this horror novelette, loosely based on a true event that happened to me and a few friends.
They were only going out to dinner and a movie.
their plans go astray, and friends Cassie, Mary, Denise, and James
decide to take a detour down a lonely mountain road. A felled tree
blocks their passage and forces them to turn around in a clearing
containing a disturbing arrangement of four deer carcasses.
their truck breaks down, and their cell phones don't work. They must
brave the cold December air, nightfall, and a long hike. Yet their
troubles are just beginning. Tension runs high between the four young
friends ... and they are not alone. Each step brings them closer to
safety, but will they make it to the main road alive?
Includes the monster's origin story "Nightmare at the Freak Show"
