Celebrate: The Mission, Vacation Blog Hop & Freebies

I've got something GREAT to celebrate this week. I published a new short story!

It's about two 13-year-old boys who can't resist going where they shouldn't.  It's scary -- but not too scary.  No violence or gore.  Just two adorable kids, lots of thrills, and edge-of-your-seat action! 

Something is waiting for Cody and Luke at the Mission.  And it doesn’t want them to leave.  Ever.

As in Stephen King’s It and Dan Simmons’s Summer of Night, curiosity is what lures kids down a dark path and pits them against their town’s most deadly secret.

The Mission sits in the desert like a crumbling tomb, silent and cold … but not empty. It plays host to a rising evil, one that wants victims. And it’s used to getting what it wants.

Cody and Luke are looking for adventure and thrills when they ride out to visit the place on a dare. Before the night is over, they’ll learn how far their friendship can stretch, and if they’re strong enough to survive the terrifying danger that waits for them.
