HAUNTED Update: The Draft is Done!

This week Jolene and I finished the draft of Haunted, the second book in the Woodsview Murders series, and the sequel to last year's Harrowed. We are rolling right into edits, but I figured I'd celebrate by just giving you a hint of what you can expect from the book, as it's a much darker story than the first book.

We're picking up one year after the Woodsview murders, and both Avery and Quinn have been profoundly affected by the killing spree that took so many people that were close to them. Avery in particular is struggling to move on after losing the love of her life, and it's affecting her relationship with Quinn. She's in a very dark place as we open the book.

Woodsview itself is a different place now. October used to be a special time of year in town, but the Harvest festival is no more, and the remaining residents of Woodsview would just assume skip the entire season altogether, for it only brings memories of the horror they suffered at the hands of the Harvester.

The Harvester is a boogeyman that most residents of Woodsview only mention in hushed conversations nowadays. But the anniversary of the Woodsview murders is approaching, and with it will begin a new chapter in the legacy of the Harvester.

Okay--there's a lot more I could share, but Jolene will kill me. So, I'm going to jump into edits. and I'll check in along the way. Haunted will be out before Halloween, so stay tuned for a cover reveal and more specific release info soon!
