It's finally getting polished up, and I can't wait to see what everyone thinks! The biggest question has been, no doubt, what the title is all about. I'm not quite one to romanticize vampire stories, though I can appreciate the #Twilight fan-base.
But this is a dark, somber, and suspenseful story (and maybe there's some romance thrown in there).
Red Mother Dead is told through the eyes of young housekeeper Brit McKay.
When her childhood crush Jack Brennan returns to Des Moines, a series of strange events begin to unfold. Jack's return is prompted by the peculiar murder of his wife -- details that not even Brit is immediately aware of.
But Jack wants his son Liam to have a fresh start, and moving into his Aunt Melanie's home seems like the new beginning they so desperately need. As Jack settles in, he confides in Brit that he doesn't quite feel like his wife is truly gone. Nightmares plague him, and young Liam insists that his mother visits him nightly.
Strange scratches appear on Liam's window, and Jack wakes up with mysterious wounds on his neck and chest. While Melanie insists that Jack and Liam are just trying to cope with the trauma of losing a loved one, Brit can't help but wonder if the small family truly isn't being terrorized by someone who was pronounced dead 3 years ago.
Fans of #RAPTURE will love the flow of the story, as well as the quick building suspense. RED MOTHER DEAD is a standalone book.
Stay tuned for details on its release!!!
