some THING calls from the dark

Featuring the Flatwoods Monster of West Virginia.

Kayla Murphy hears an odd call for help in the dead of night coming from the creepy woods beyond her backyard. The voice is all she remembers when she wakes up the next morning on her bedroom floor below an open window.

At school, the teachers don’t even notice that several kids have disappeared, and every time Kayla thinks about the voice from the woods, she gets a terrible headache. When her own little brother goes missing and her parents forget he ever existed, Kayla treks into the woods that surround her home in the secluded, backcountry of West Virginia. Join her as each dangerous step leads her closer to the monster of local folklore.

Dear Spooky Rumors Readers,  

As someone who wants to know more about the things that go bump in the night, I trust you will find the information within this series most valuable. I am Agatha Binx, perhaps the world’s foremost authority on the creepy creatures, wild werebeasts, and gruesome ghosts of our time. Being a witch of mysterious magics, I am uniquely positioned to gather the inside information that no mortal may obtain without dire consequences.

And now, I share these deadly secrets of the dark with you. As a good and kind soul, I feel it is my duty to pass these rumors, really warnings in their most basic form, so that you may prepare yourself. I pray it is not too late.

The night before last, while watching a mystery movie marathon with Mothman, I learned a rumor that… Some Thing Calls from the Dark!  

May your flashlight never fail,
