Fear of the Dark? Haunted House Stories
"At the top of a hill, on the edge of a town, devoid of neighbors and noise, sat a house. But this was no ordinary house..." Haunted house stories are always fun to tell and thrilling to hear. It's all about creating an atmosphere and having a believable story line. And, of course, stories are always better when they are true. Look below for pointers on how best to tell a haunted house story.
Writing a paranormal story is one of the great creative pleasures of life. It allows you to not only work your creative capabilities in a work of fiction, but gives you the opportunity to flex your imagination and see where it will take you. A paranormal story refers to a story which involves the presence of ghosts, psychics, werewolves, vampires, spirits, demons or aliens. Even if you're a beginning writer, you can still create a story that is thrillingly chilling.

My books The Deception and Sins of the Father are now exclusives and they have been reduced to $2.99. Also, I found out you don't need a Kindle to read it. And it's part of Amazon's Unlimited Program. I'm looking for people to read and review my work in order to get feedback.

Hi! My second novel Sins of the Father has been published on, Barnes and, and Here is the synopsis

In November 1692 Edward Parrish was tried for sorcery by the local prosecutor. His conviction was the byproduct of testimony given by two male Puritan witnesses. He was sentenced to death by three male judges. On the day of his sentencing, he placed a curse on the descendants of the six men who sealed his fate. What the towns’ people didn’t know was he had cursed a man on the way to the courthouse.

In 2013 in Hell, Lucifer develops a deadly scheme to destroy the lives of the descendants of the Puritans with the seven deadly sins. Each sin has a specific demon attached to it and Lucifer calls them up individually to do his and Edward’s bidding. Lucifer and the six demons enter into seven wooden soldiers. They are sent out to the seven families to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting souls of the descendants. Two detectives are assigned to the case and they scramble to solve the case before it’s too late.
