Earthing Publications has announced their Halloween release for this year. We’ve locked in a very limited number of copies.

Every small town has ghosts. King’s Branch has Marla. A reclusive young woman who lives with her mother in a creepy Gothic house, Marla Gorman is the stuff of urban legends. Some believe she’s a prisoner. Others claim she’s a witch.

The evening of the first murder, Detective Carl Lancaster sees Marla leering at him from her bedroom window. He sees her again at the exact moment a second man is killed. And though Marla was nowhere near either murder site, Carl is convinced she’s connected to the crimes.

To Carl, Marla is a menace. To social worker Annie Frost, Marla bears a bizarre connection to her past. To Dylan Ellison, a struggling college student, Marla might be the companion for which he’s been longing.

But none of them understands Marla’s true nature. She’s about to plunge them—and everyone in King’s Branch—into an unspeakable nightmare and teach them the true meaning of terror.

Limited: 500 signed numbered hardcover copies


From Publishers Weekly (Starred Review):

“A profound sense of supernatural creepiness permeates this superb, blood-chilling horror novel from Janz (The Raven)… Janz’s nuanced characterizations ground the ensuing investigation, enabling suspension of disbelief as he gradually reveals the chilling truth. Fans of Stephen King’s Castle Rock books will be hooked.”
