So Fall, aka Back to School means one thing...

Halloween is coming!

Made ya smile, right?

So if you're looking for a new take on the proverbial Fall ghost story, I have just the thing for you, releasing in just a few weeks:


And the Trees Crept  cover


Synopsis:

When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt's home, it's immediately clear that the "blood manor" is cursed. The creaking of the house and the stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too--the questions that Silla can't ignore: 

Who is the beautiful boy that's appeared from the woods? 
Who is the man that her little sister sees, but no one else? 
And why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer? 

Review: 

This may be a YA thriller, but adults will find it perfect Fall reading! It takes the proverbial ghost tale and puts it on a new axis! There are so many twists and turns, that even when you THINK you know what is going on, you don't. And then when the end comes, there is a moment of stunning clarity, followed by "WOW, I have to share this book!" Dawn once again shows why she is the new master at horror. If you like books that keep you guessing and reading long into the night, don't miss this one. Oh yeah, and you might want to let your teen read it when you're done!
