Billy Fletcher learned to farm the family’s tobacco fields – and beat slaves – by the hands of his father. Now, his father is dead, the slaves have long since been freed, and the once-lush fields are dying. Salvation by the name of Abraham knocks on the farmhouse door, bringing wild ideas. He can help Billy save the plantation and return the fields to their former glory…by raising his father’s slaves from the dead.
Can the resurrected slaves breathe life back into the Fletcher farm? Having brought the slaves back from graves that his father sent them to, can Billy be the kind master his father wasn’t? Is keeping the farm worth denying the men the freedom they earned with death?
Billy’s conscience holds the key to those mysteries, but not the biggest one: what does Abraham really want from the former slave owner’s son?
Welcome to The Fields.
Note: A trailer for the novella will be posted in a few weeks.
Do you live in or driving distance from Cleveland, Ohio and are looking for something unique to do on Halloween? Well, I might have your answer right here.
Deepinit Productions is housting : Quickening – The Zombie Raver Prom in a massive 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Cleveland, Ohio on Halloween.
So, if you’re into dancing, raving, drinking and just plain getting crazy to some music, you can learn more about the event and the admission costs by visiting here (Facebook page) and/or here (you can see an electronic flyer on this site).
Enjoy…and who knows…perhaps you’ll see me there as well…maybe.
I mentioned here that I’m currently working on short stories that will comprise a ‘short story collection.’ Though the majority of these stories are already written, I have about 10,000 words left that I need to write to in order to meet the minimum word count requirement of 50,000.
I mention this, because with the next story I’m about to begin, tonight, I am going to go with a zombie theme – it will be something different – not like the usual – ‘ya gotta shoot em’ in the head to kill em” scenario. I have never written about zombies (but do enjoy reading books and watching movies about them), so it should be interesting what I can and will come up with that is different from the norm.
I say all this because as I was recently cruising the internet looking for zombie info and ran across a ‘How To Kill A Zombie’ Poster (you can view the poster online or download it into PDF) and thought that if any of you are into zombies, as I am, you might want to check it out. Click here to view it.
Pretty cool stuff – Enjoy!
