HE’S BACK

I hear the birds in the trees,
Singing in the warm breeze.
They know who will soon come
To the beat of the drum.
Wolf is back in book two.
He can be me or you.
In another body,
He will be somebody
We all know from book one.
He’ll still be The Dead...

 

 

I hear the birds in the trees,

Singing in the warm breeze.

They know who will soon come

To the beat of the drum.

Wolf is back in book two.

He can be me or you.

In another body,

He will be somebody

We all know from book one.

He’ll still be The Dead one.

Come and join us in the game.

I promise it won’t be lame.

He comes from the sea.
Now he comes for me.
He only appears at night.
His presence gives me a fright.

He comes from the sea.

Now he comes for me.

He only appears at night.

His presence gives me a fright.

He wooed me before.

He’s come back for more.

But I won’t wait here.

You don’t need to fear.

I’ll join the others as we run.

I know this can’t be any fun.

Arms are encircling me.

Now I can never be free.

DARKNESS ROLLS IN

Dark skies are moving in.
The town is dark as sin.
Rumbling fills the humid air,
And The Dead will soon be here.
Hail begins to fall,
Big as a baseball.
Lightning joins the hot fray.
I’m not going to...

Dark skies are moving in.

The town is dark as sin.

Rumbling fills the humid air,

And The Dead will soon be here.

Hail begins to fall,

Big as a baseball.

Lightning joins the hot fray.

I’m not going to stay.

We must escape this night

Before we lose the fight.

Wolf has come for me.

I’m as afraid as I can be.

THE EVIL STAIRCASE

 

 

THE EVIL STAIRCASE

No one answers our knock.

The front door drifts open.

I step into the dark hallway.

My friends close behind.

A dark staircase looms above us.

Gargoyles stand guard along its banisters.

Lights flicker from the right hallway.

A cold draft hits our left shoulders.

What should we do?

Read The Dead Game to find out.

SINKHOLE

 

 

SINKHOLE

A sinkhole where the house has stood

Lies deep in the deserted wood.

Where has everyone gone to?

The grass and trees are gone too.

A house and garden have once stood here.

Now there is only the ground laid bare.

Could they be in the tunnels below?

Will you hear me if I yell ‘hello’?

I hear rumbling coming from the hole.

The loose rocks are beginning to roll.

I should leave before it’s too late

And I suffer the same sad fate.

TO A TOWN NEAR YOU

Ocean and Beach Posts

 

Paradise waits for us.

A perfect oasis.

Waves cascade onto the beach.

Guests lounge around

the hotel’s swimming pool.

Quaint stores dot Main Street.

Life is beautiful.

Until night comes.

Waves hit the shore

with their increasing fury.

The sun bows out.

The moon takes its place.

The night brings The Dead walking

into a town near you.

Bill Clinton, James Patterson Team Up for Novel

Truly Amazing!

Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton, James Patterson Team Up for Novel

https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/publisher-news/article/73518-bill-clinton-james-patterson-team-up-for-novel.html

 

One of the country’s biggest bestselling authors is teaming up with a former president to write a new novel that will be copublished by two of the Big Five trade houses.

In a joint announcement, the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group and the Hachette Book Group announced that former President Bill Clinton and James Patterson have begun work on a novel called The President Is Missing. The book, which is being edited by Knopf chairman Sonny Mehta and HBG CEO Michael Pietsch, is scheduled to be released in June 2018.

Knopf is Bill Clinton’s long-time publisher, having released three of his books, including 2004’s My Life. The prolific Patterson has a 16-person team at HBG’s Little, Brown division that works on his adult titles, as well as his children’s books.

Clinton and Patterson met on a golf course about 10 years ago and have been friends since. The idea to work on a book together came from Washington, D.C.-based attorney Bob Barnett, who suggested the two join forces on a book. Mehta and Pietsch acquired world rights to the book–excluding the U.K. and Commonwealth, where Century will release the book–from Barnett.

The publishers said the novel will be “informed by insider details that only a President can know.” For his part, Clinton said: “Working on a book about a sitting President—drawing on what I know about the job, life in the White House, and the way Washington works—has been a lot of fun.” Patterson said he has enjoyed the collaboration. “Working with President Clinton has been the highlight of my career, and having access to his first-hand experience has uniquely informed the writing of this novel.”

Knopf’s Paul Bogaards said Knopf and HBG worked seamlessly in getting the deal done. “When you have two accomplished publishing teams working together on a project, decisions are arrived at collaboratively and without impediment.”

While Bogaards acknowledged that cross-publisher contact has been minimal in the early stages of the project, he said this will change as the book moves forward. Certain responsibilities, for example, have already been assigned; HBG will sell the book to retailers, while Knopf is handling foreign rights.

 

THE WINDOW

The house in the woods,
Covered by vines and leaves.
Eyes peek out at the sun.
The door stands open.
We walk in.
“Hello, does anyone live here?
Oh, I didn’t see the two of you.”
A man and a woman stare at us.
“Welcome to our house.
Would you like to...

 

 

The house at the edge of town,

Covered by vines and leaves.

Eyes peek out at the sun.

The door stands open.

We walk in.

“Hello, does anyone live here?

Oh, I didn’t see the two of you.”

A man and a woman stare at us.

“Welcome to our house.

Would you like to see the upstairs?”

The woman asks with a smile.

Shana nods eagerly.

I follow them upstairs.

Children’s bedrooms sit empty,

Perfect shrines with dolls and toys.

“Would you like to see the attic?”

The woman turns to us.

I shake my head.

Shana nods.

An empty room faces us.

The rocking chair begins to rock.

Back and forth.

The man’s dark eyes find us.

“We watch End House from here.

We are The Watchers.”

The rocking chair faces the window.

End House looms in the distance.

Who is rocking the chair?

A vampire Watcher?

Squeak, Squeak, Squeak.

It rocks back and forth.
