It’s my favorite holiday and probably always will be. I think about this a lot. Even as a child, I was so excited during October that I could barely sit still. This year promises to be beautiful here in Colorado. The leaves are all colors of autumn now, but the winds are kicking up and blowing them away. So, here’s the special of the week in celebration:
THE WITCHER CHIME is on sale for only ninety-nine pennies. I love you so much, I want to scare you for Halloween. .99. That’s it! For one week only.
I imagine Savannah Caleman’s house at the Witcher Place looking somewhat like this, but with groves of aspens and pines banking the house. And we couldn’t forget that barn where Jim Witcher was found hanging!
A deadly, possessive entity imprints on members of Savannah Caleman’s family, making her the latest object of obsession in this chilling, historical tale of haunted legacy and terror.
Savannah Caleman’s family has been coming apart since the early 1920’s. Now in the late 1980’s the evil plaguing her family dons a suit and tie and introduces himself, giving Savannah an ultimatum—endure endless terror or grant his freedom. She must decide between her sister’s safety and aiding a monster that can’t be identified as an angel or a demon. Either way, Savannah is torn, and takes to single-handedly running the family affairs with precision as she takes care of her sister. Terrifying events play out as the Witcher Place is transformed to a rich estate using old family resources. Releasing a monster to roam at will isn’t a stellar option, no matter the promises he makes. And he’s more than a monster. He knows her innermost thoughts. He’s in her head, becoming the ideal man for her, manipulating her thoughts. But the stains of murder and torment cannot be erased. He has fallen, been shackled in the mine beneath the Colorado mountains, and now has plans to rise once more using Savannah as the key to regain grace. Horror abounds and Savannah turns to distant relatives for answers, fearing her family’s stigma of insanity is real and has spread, caused by an evil as ancient as Genesis.
