Birthdays and Serial Killers and Books! Oh My!

Today is a very special day, because today is the creator of The Midnight Society’s birthday! That’s right, it’s the anniversary of Jolene Haley‘s entrance to this realm.

This lady is relentlessly supportive, so I thought we should celebrate her existence by being supportive right back! One month from now, on September 22nd, you’ll be able to read the very first novel in The Woodsview Murders series, Harrowed. It’s been cowritten by Jolene Haley and Brian LeTendre (another member of The Midnight Society!)

Haven’t heard about it? Here are the details:

Journalism Rule #1: Always report the story. Never become the story.

Avery Blair has accepted the fact that nothing exciting ever happens in her small town of Woodsview, Massachusetts. As the editor of the high school blog, she prays for something–anything–to come along that would make for a great headline.

When Beatrice Thompson’s body is found in the girls’ bathroom, Avery has her biggest story ever. The rumors circulating the school say that Beatrice took her own life, but Avery doesn’t believe it for a second. Her instincts prove true when the next day brings another body bag. The tiny community of Woodsview has become the hunting ground for a killer known as The Harvester. The killer targets Avery and her classmates, stalking their every move and terrorizing them with morbid messages.

With the help of her boyfriend Jason, her best friend Quinn, and an aging detective who can’t keep her off the case, Avery dives head-first into her own investigation. She discovers that the secret of the Woodsview Harvester is buried in the town’s history and its annual Harvest Festival celebration. With every clue she uncovers, Avery grows closer to unmasking the killer–and becoming the next victim.

Avery Blair has finally found a story to die for…if she can stay alive long enough to write it.


In celebration of Jolene Haley, and this upcoming novel, I’ve got a couple great pictures you can feel free to pull and spread, perfectly sized for twitter (but you can post them anywhere!)

    On this day in Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master released theatrically in 1988.

    Have the best day. If I were a zombie I’d tear my lips off and plant them right on your cheek.
