It’s the 3rd day of October. So far you’ve met John Watson and T. E. Guthrie. Now it’s time for a little book love. Today’s book spotlight is on Angry House by Alexis Kennedy. It is priced just right for the holiday at $.99, but grab it fast before it ends!
Rhett Shaw is a widowed author with a lot on his mind. The noise of Brooklyn has drowned out all of his ideas for stories, so in order to get back to the basics and his career, he decides to make a move to the countryside in Vermont. The white wooden house nestled deep inside the privacy of the woods looked perfect. Sure, it was run down, but it was quiet, secluded, and it appeared vacant.
Immediately after moving into his new residence and beginning repairs, Rhett starts to notice odd things happening around the house—his tools aren’t where he leaves them, appliances come on by themselves, he hears noises rattling through the walls, and sometimes he feels like he’s not alone. At first, he ignores it because inspiration hits, and his book seems to start writing itself. Characters come alive and embed themselves deep inside his thoughts—and maybe, he wonders, his actions. The rampage of theft and murder he describes in the book is plaguing the once quiet Vermont community, but he can’t tell if he’s describing the crimes before they’re committed or after.
But is it too late to run now that the house has taken a hold of him?
Here’s an exclusive excerpt from the story just for you:
He started typing up the new contract on the computer, and he looked up at Rhett with a look of confusion. “This says your address is 100 Jones Drive. The cashier must’ve typed that in wrong. What is it please?”
Now, Rhett was the one who looked confused. “No, that’s right. She typed it correctly. I mean the letters are falling off the house, but I’m sure that it’s 100, and it’s the only house on the drive anyway,” he said with a shrug.
“Jones Drive, Bondville?”
Rhett’s brows came together, and his jaw clenched. In a voice that he forced to remain calm, he replied, “Yes, Jones Drive in Bondville. Why? What’s the problem here?”
The man looked at the computer, back at Rhett, and then back at the computer. His hands were trembling as much as his voice was when he told Rhett, “You couldn’t possibly live on Jones Drive in Bondville.”
“Why the hell not?” Rhett didn’t disguise his agitation any longer.
The clerk’s voice shook even more when he answered, “Because the house on Jones Drive burned down six years ago, Mr. Shaw. It killed the entire family living there.”
The world suddenly stood still. . .
