If you’ve been hanging out with me, you know that I just can’t seem to get Alabama out of my system. Remember when I threatened to turn my childhood into a horror story about demon? Well, it’s arrived. At least partially.
As a working title, I call it ‘Appalachia’. Put simply, it details an outbreak of demon sightings in a small town in northeast Alabama. I won’t lie – I was thinking of my home town when I started it, too. Not that we had flesh and blood demons, but demons and ideology and morality stalked us freely.
I wrote a number of ‘Appalachia’ shorts for my Camp Nanowrimo project for the month of April, and they’ve been sort of sitting around ever since. Two things are certain: I don’t plan to seek traditional publication for this series, and I’m going to take it in a slightly different direction than the initial pile of shorts. With that said, I don’t want to waste what I’ve got. I decided to post the first one here as a bit of a teaser. The final product might be different, but I haven’t shared a story with you guys in a while.
Did you like the preliminary installment of “Appalachia’? Are you curious to see what it could become? Did you hate it? Let me know, cause I don’t want to let this one go.
Besides, Halloween is coming.
