Happy Birthday, Spooky!

The original idea of this character and the world he inhabits was born in 1999, as in “party like it’s.” I also kicked around the idea that Spencer was born on Friday the 13th, which seems a little cliche, but I thought it would be fun that occasionally his birthday would fall on a Friday. Today he turns twelve years old.

In any case, it just kind of happened that the series got going in such a way that the main character’s timeline is very close to real time, and rather than try to force things into being timeless (which is virtually impossible in a modern setting unless you dislocate your characters to an alien landscape), I decided to just run with it.

And for anyone not on Facebook, I have officially announced the name of the third book: “Schoolhouse Number Five.” For a peek at the cover, check out my Thinking Skull page on FB.

New Cover for “The Spooky Chronicles: The Crooked Man”

The first book of “The Spooky Chroncicles” called “The Crooked Man” is available now for $3.99 at Smashwords.com for whatever eBook reader you have (Kindle, iBooks, Nook, Kobo, Sony, PDF) or even just on your computer.

Here’s the new cover replacing the original. I like to call it “Beneath the Hoodie” or “Spooky in the Stacks.” I love the front of the book shop with the hooded kid (it will continue to be on the Spooky Chronicles website), but happy, creepy, little dead boy inside the bookshop pretty much says everything I wanted to about introducing this character. If you’d like to see the full-size version, click the image or click here to go to the book page on Smashwords.

Spooky: the Dead Little Boy Who Continued to Grow Up

On sale now for one measly dollar ($1.00) at horror.drivethrustuff.com for your PDF reader or iBooks.

At the age of six, the pale little boy became ill, and although he was already small and thin, he grew smaller and thinner still. His skin turned a pallid gray, but the smile never left his face and his mother never left his side. When he turned seven, the tumor in his chest finally overtook his heart, and he died.

It is whispered that everyone dies alone. But the pale little boy wasn’t alone when he died, and on the other side, he met a crooked man with a crooked stick who pointed at the dead little boy with a crooked finger. The dead little boy opened his eyes only to find those of his mother closed. Somehow he knew that his mother had taken his place and that the crooked man had caused it; what he didn’t know was why.
