A Spooky Novella for Spooky Season

Local indie author Jamie Weaver recently released the first episode in her novella series, “Haunt”. Episode 1, titled “Don’t Die” tells the story of a sudden apocalypse happening to seemingly normal horror movie buffs, who must work together as a unit. As someone who is not only a huge fan of horror, but also grew up an avid reader, “Haunt” draws you right in. Jamie’s use of literary devices, and way with words almost makes it feel more like a movie rather than a book. Each page, filled with super descriptive words, and impressive character development and dialogue makes you feel like a part of the “group” as well. However, while I understand that this is a novella, I feel like this episode in particular moves rather quickly, and sometimes jumps back and forth from one extreme to the next, but this does not take away from the story nonetheless! The sheer talent that Jamie displays as a writer is clear in both her full length novels, her poetry, and her novellas. Episode 2 of “Haunt: Suspicion and Superstition” releases on October 6th!
