The Halloween Children by Brian James Freeman & Norman Prentiss

Hydra / Random House eBook Publication Date: June 13, 2017

The Halloween Children
is frankly one of the more disturbing books I have ever read. From page to page my opinion of who was the monster behind what was going on changed from husband to wife to the children and then back. I was shocked and startled, grossed out and horrified – and I enjoyed every minute of it. And in the end, I still wasn’t sure who was the craziest – myself included. Freeman and Prentiss have created a disturbing tale with images so vivid they leapt from the page into brilliantly colored pictures in the mind. This is one powerful book. Treat yourself to this one for Halloween but be warned – have plenty of candy on hand for The Halloween Children should come knocking.

Sorry about the lack of posts lately. I have been suffering from blood clots in my left eye. Hopefully, this will resolve soon. If not, laser surgery will be scheduled. Already been done twice this year, but no lasting results.

I've had a bout with bacterial pneumonia and I'm not sure the antibiotics cleared it up completely, because not I'm fighting with bronchitis and have finished the antibioticts and am not showing a lot of improvement. Still have the cough and congestion and it has moved down to my ears and I'm can't hear in either year even with my hearing aides at full volume.

Hoping to get better soon. Am off from work so I can spend the full week trying to shake it.

I appreciate those who continue to visit my page. I'll have some new content soon.
