This isn't photoshop trickery. We actually captured this on Brandon's camera using a 19th century skeleton key, the printed manuscript, and so, SO much gasoline. Because you see, it wasn't as easy as just lighting a match and setting the paper on fire. No, it turns out that apparently it's incredibly hard to set things on fire.
Which makes us wonder, if a gas soaked piece of paper ignited with a gas lighter can barely stay aflame, how the hell do people burn down an entire forest with a fallen cigarette butt?
Regardless, we think the cover turned out well, and unlike our usual writings, this novella is actually a psychological horror story. It's not like anything we've ever written before. This is what it's about:
Alan Densmore is a failing novelist whose downward-spiraling career is driving a stake through the heart of his marriage. In an effort to repair the crumbling relationship with his wife, Lisa, he brings her to the Blue Skies Inn, a bed-and-breakfast nestled away in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. But, instead of bringing the couple closer together, the weekend getaway only delivers unexplainable terror.
Haunting memories are traded for haunting spirits as the story unfolds in this dark novella, which is told in two parts, from two separate decades.
The second half of the tale marks the arrival of a mildly famous paranormal investigator, who finds himself completely unprepared for the terrifying events that begin to unfold at the Blue Skies Inn.
