THE HAUNTING OF CABIN GREEN SYNOPSIS

April_ATaylor

“Unique… the author depicts the grieving process amazingly well. The story is claustrophobic… and what an ending it is. All of the flashbacks and delusions suddenly make sense… [it’s a] sucker punch.” – Jennifer Turner, HorrorTalk

Welcome to Cabin Green, where the setting is familiar, but the story is completely unexpected. This original, terrifying psychological thriller is the debut horror novel from the author of the highly rated Midnight Myths and Fairy Tales Series. Socially conscious, inclusive, and raw modern Gothic horror that reflects the world around us and takes a close look at the destructive nature of grief. Current Goodreads average rating (as of June 17, 2018): 3.8 stars.

Going to Cabin Green alone after the death of his fiancée was Ben’s first mistake. His second mistake was tempting fate by saying, “There’s no such thing as an evil building.” Now he’s caught in a nightmare of his own making deep in the woods of Northern Michigan. Even worse, a family history of mental illness makes it impossible for him to know if the ghosts haunting the cabin are real or all in his head.

This modern Gothic horror story takes the reader directly into Ben’s hellish experience. Is he crazy? Is a ghost haunting him? The only way to find out is to make it to the end of this deep, dark thrill ride that’s filled with more twists than a roller coaster.

This book was inspired by a real-life, spooky green cabin in Northern Michigan that’s so well-hidden it can’t be found by GPS!

Within this novel, you’ll be taken back and forth in time. The time frames are indicated by clear markers. These time jumps provide valuable background information about the main characters and allow you to get to know them more intimately. These jumps are also used as a device to weave a thread throughout the entire book that provides clues about the cabin’s sinister secrets. Pay close attention: Can you guess the shocking ending?

Content Warning: This isn’t a Saw-type torture story, but it does contain gore, sex, profanity, and deeply disturbing psychological themes. This isn’t a fluffy horror story; it’s emblematic of the destructive, devastating nature of depression/grief. Readers are taken directly into the main character’s experience, which means that feelings of confusion are normal and intentional. Until Ben knows what’s going on, readers won’t know, either! For mature readers only.

EXCERPT FROM THE HAUNTING OF CABIN GREEN

Ben reached out again, and his fingertips came into tentative contact with the alien object. The moisture in the air hadn’t seeped into its skin. His left fist covered his mouth to stop audible proof of his fear from escaping. At the same time, he increased the pressure of his right fingers in a bid to figure out what – or who – had gotten in his way. A crumbling sensation sent shock waves throughout his body. He managed to hold on long enough for a small sliver of something unknown to drop into his palm…
