I’m so excited to finally share this new novel with you, coming in July 2023. This book is a lot. It begins a 3-part series. It deals with a traditional “haunted house” in a very different way. There are twists, turns, secrets, and surprises. Romances, family bonds, trauma, tragedy. It has everything. The Misery House promises to keep you on the edge of your seat while pulling at your heartstrings. It’s a book that all of us, after everything we’ve been through, can relate to.
It’s a book for everyone. And that’s why I’m excited to share it with everyone.
So if you haven’t, consider checking out the short story prequel. If nothing else, make sure to follow me on this blog, on Twitter, or my newsletter, because I’ll be sharing snippets of the book over the next year. Building to the launch in 2023. You can read Chapter 1 below, though it might change a bit by the release date!
Get ready for a wild, emotional ride. Get ready to visit the house on the hill.
Book #1: The Misery House
The abandoned house. A town with a dark history.
You’ve never known a haunted house like this.
New Haven hasn’t seen tragedy like this for centuries. In the rural farming community, a local store burns to the ground with two bodies inside. A newly-wed couple with their own secrets goes missing. This is quickly becoming the deadliest summer anyone can remember, and the unexplained deaths aren’t finished yet. With no answers in sight, the townspeople are on edge.
What evil force is attacking their peaceful community? And what did they do to provoke it?
The Woods family lives just outside of town. Their close bond and sense of justice have kept them safe, but it’s also made them a target. Naomi has been to the house on the hill before, and she vowed to never return. But when Kaia’s best friend goes missing, the nightmares become personal. As the web of secrets is untangled, the Woods, and New Haven, will never be the same.
Fear and paranoia hang over them like a thundercloud. But the stakes are high. Failure could cost them everything. Some outcomes are even worse than death.
