HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We have two resolutions for 2015: write even more than we did in 2014 and… have fun doing it.

In 2014, we decided to try collaborating and began writing a short story together. Grandma’s Rack soon grew into a novella, and still begged for more, so we let it have its way and become a full-fledged novel.  When we were most of the way through it, we realized we had to put it on hold so that we could write another horror novel in order to meet a deadline.

So we set Grandma in her rocker on the porch to relax and take the summer breeze while we wrote a brand new horror novel full of eerie legends and lore, ghosts, and quirky characters who quickly took over and had their way with the novel – and with us. In four months, we had 170,000 words and…

Christmas Spirits Cover Reveal

All I want for Christmas are ghosts!

Thorne & Cross

Coming in a few days, we’re proud to present our big holiday special, The Ghosts of Ravencrest: Christmas Spirits.

While it is the fourth installment of The Ghosts of Ravencrest, you don’t need to be following the serial novel to enjoy Christmas Spirits. It is a stand-alone novella, a ghostly Christmas tale that takes place in London in 1788. We visit the historic Frost Fair on the frozen Thames River and spend Christmas at a country manor house that’s full of murder, intrigue, and all sorts of ghostly goings-on intermingled with Father Christmas, sugar plums, and carols of the period.

If you’re following the serial novel, you’ll get lots of clues about what’s going on in modern-day Ravencrest Manor, too. You can pick up the first three episodes (The New Governess, Awakening, and Darker Shadows) as an omnibus titledThe Ghosts of Ravencrest: Darker Shadows
