A small-town teen has to outwit a madman before his loved ones and friends are butchered on Halloween in 1993″Robert’s Grove, Tennessee. Halloween 1993. The leaves were turning various shades of red, yellow and orange. Halloween decorations dotted the whole town. Our schools even released early for this holiday..so we had extra time to dress up or plan pranks. The towns fall was in full swing. In my town, that was a big deal, we took all holidays serious and celebrated to the max. This Halloween was no exception. The fall festival was coming up on the night before and trick or treating like no other town on all hallows eve. For me, Scott and my siblings though this Halloween would bring more than the usual night of fun. It started with the story of the towns scary house, which me and my brother made the mistake of visiting. Then all things hellish started happening to me and them. From visons of hangings to a mysterious dark shadow following us around before Halloween. From the local cemetery to the fall festival to school the next day and everywhere between it seemed, the dark figure followed!Things get way worse for me and my best friend Betty on Halloween night though. We figure out more of the towns scary houses dark secret and it ends up being a fight to the death for us to survive that dark Halloween night! I’ll never forget the build up of terror and its deadly culmination! It was a Bloody Halloween!
Jimmy explains his inspiration for the book. “Like fantasy, horror can bend the rules a little bit. But we can do it on a scary way ..mess with those emotions of fear and anxiety. Always loved urban legends and folk takes but growing up watching horror inspired this and my love for the autumn.
It’s written basically like an r.l. stine book. Like fear street. But for adults a little more. Young adults. It were your appetite with a good story, but not overly full of multiple plots and substories etc. It’s my first “ first person ” book. Which I think I prefer now. Love the feel of seeing from the characters eyes. It also has lots of nods or Easter eggs from popular horror too like Halloween Friday the 13th, psycho, Texas chainsaw, candyman, nightmare on elm street, wrong turn and more.”
