The Cave Novella

Here is the description:


While exploring the woods near their bike trails, four soon-to-be eighth grade boys make an exciting discovery: a real cave! Of course they decide to explore it, and they make a pact to keep it as their very own secret.

But Steve breaks the pact in order to win the attention of the neighborhood girl that they all dream about: Gina Lawson. To their surprise, Gina wants in on their adventure. As the five of them explore further and deeper, they begin to realize that their cave is not simply a cave – but does the strange pocket of darknesss merely pose serious danger, or does true evil lurk within?

A 25,000 word horror novella mixing teenage exuberance with a touch of the macabre. (Contains adult themes and some adult language.)

It only costs $0.99!  For 25 THOUSAND words!  (maybe a few more, actually.)  Grab it today!

    Thanks, Steve! I don’t think you’ll find it that frightening. But don’t let that stop you from uncorking the Jameson’s!

      Thanks, Steve! I didn’t read the review yet, will check it out asap! I appreciate your comments!

      ETA: That’s a great review! Thanks, and I’m glad you enjoyed it! A lot of my horror is like that, with elements from many genres. I think the best of King and Koontz does similar things. It’s not all about the monstrous beast; in fact, it might not even be PRIMARILY about that beast. The best stories (this is me with my reader hat on) are about people, relationships, and even places. That’s what I like about your fiction. Great characters and great relationships develop throughout your stories. Anyway, thanks again!

    Yeah, I struggled in my new sci-fi novel (More than Human: The Mensa Contagion–coming soon) to keep my characters human (well, more than human) and not have them drown in the science and technology. I completely agree–sci-fi and other genres are best when the characters are people we can relate too. Still think Koontz is more sci-fi-ish than King. It would be interesting to see the two go at each other in a debate on this issue! (Of course, neither one needs to improve “his brand” with public appearances!)
    Take care.
