Halloween is fast approaching. Yay! I love Halloween. I love the fun it represents. I love the good-natured spookiness. I love dressing up and pretending to be someone else for a night. Hell, I even love tossing candy at the little critters that come knocking on my door.
I’m not big on super scary. I don’t like jump out of the dark and scare people stuff. I don’t like gory horror movies. I definitely don’t like being truly scared.
Even with all my love for the day, I have never written anything for the holiday (kinda silly calling Halloween a holiday, isn’t it?).
Until now. My sweet romantic writing alter ego, Marci Boudreaux, has taken on Halloween in a way that is completely different for us. She has written a paranormal short story The Legend of Sarah Latham which will be released in October via Musa Publishing.
I don’t have an exact date just yet, because this was kind of a last minute acceptance thing, but it is coming next month and I am really excited to see what people think of it.
This is a free read to celebrate my love of Halloween. I’ll be sure to shout out the release date when I get one! Until then, I hope enjoy the blurb and the trailer!
Nearly four hundred years ago, Sarah Latham and William Fuller disappeared without a trace.
Legend has it she was a wicked witch and he was her demon. Legend also has it that whenever a Latham descendent reaches thirty years of age, Sarah comes to drag them to Hell.
Good thing twenty-nine year old Elizabeth Latham doesn’t believe in legends. Or at least she didn’t until she happened upon a woman in the family cemetery who just happened to look an awful lot like the paintings in the local museum.
Elizabeth is determined to stay ground in reality, but her idea of reality is shattered when she realizes Sarah and William have returned. But Elizabeth quickly realizes that Sarah is about as far from wicked as William is from being a demon.
So if Sarah hasn’t been killing generations of Lathams…who has?
