I’m proud to announce the debut of Dark Shadows 2: Voodoo and Black Magic of New Orleans — the result of the Authors on a Train trip! In it, you’ll find 4 short stories written by the eight authors who journeyed via train from Chicago’s Union Station to New Orleans last November.
My story, written with author Chloe Adler, is called The Soul Collector.
On the Louisiana Bayou, some secrets haunt you forever… Angelina longs for a different life but can’t break free from the sinister Mr. Rudy. When she discovers his macabre deception, she sets off on a dangerous and dark path that will forever change their lives.
We channeled our inner Stephen Kings for this one, and it’s been described as “beautifully dark.”
The other stories are equally as chilling and fun to read:
- The Curse of the Rougarou is like X-Files set in a swamp.
- Unfinished Business reminds me of the Salem witch trials, with a nightmarish New Orleans twist.
- The Ghost Who Walks is a classic tale of revenge set in the French Quarter.
All proceeds from book sales will be donated to the Covenant House of New Orleans, a shelter and safe place for homeless young people. We felt it was a very deserving charity and hope to see it benefit.
