This is a very short beginning that poses as a book. For me, that wasn’t such a bad thing and the fact that it is free puts it in the tasty teaser category.
John is a writer with an acute case of writer’s block, and when his publisher sends him away for a few months to spend some time alone with just his laptop, he has no choice but to seize the opportunity. The house he is sent to is steeped in mystery and intrigued, and not to mention a big dose of Gothic imagery.
The story is well-written and takes on a steady, smooth pace. I felt compelled to read it by the strength of the story. I was disappointed when it ended so abruptly, but it was free, and I have the choice to buy the next book.
