When children begin disappearing, taken by what witnesses call Slenderman, will investigative reporter Pacie Rose be able to stop the tall, skinny entity in a black suit before it makes Black Water a permanent home?

Pacie Rose is picking strawberries with her family when her sidekick calls with news of a child’s abduction. As Black Water’s beloved investigative reporter, she takes on the task of stopping the growing list of casualties caused by this madman. No one is safe, not even her family.

Abductions, murder, and suicides have spiked in the Lake Michigan resort town of Black Water necessitating the help of Pacie Rose. But will she crumble when the slender man comes for her?


Nine-year-old Morgan Rafferty sat the white plastic grocery bag filled with hot dog buns on top of the picnic table. She rubbed the goosebumps on her arms, wondering why her hairs prickled. It was not cold outside, in fact, it was a sweltering Saturday morning. It gave her a creepy feeling, like something bad was going to happen.

Pacie Rose learns of an old, forgotten mansion in the forest near Sugar Sand Park where the first child was abducted. No one has seen it and it’s rumored that if anyone does, they will never come back. It does not show on the satellite layer on her phone’s map program. It is said that there is not even a road or trail to it and that it is probably demolished by the forest’s vegetation. 

Will Pacie try to find it? Is it Slenderman’s mansion?

A raven makes a brief appearance in Slenderman and I had to look up what a raven’s call sounds like. The Audubon’s post How to Tell a Raven From a Crow says “While crows caw and purr, ravens croak and scream bloody murder. They give these two audio examples.

·       American Crow

·       Common Raven

Ravens look creepier than a crow. They’re bigger, have long bristles at the base of their beak, and have shaggy throat feathers. Raven symbolism pertains to ill omen, death or other gruesome turns of thought.

Anyway, while I was researching ravens, I found Edgar Allan Poe’s 1883 poem, The Raven.

This picture shows Christmas tree ornaments made by my two sons back in 1998. I believe my mom helped them make them.

I took this picture today and thought it would be a nice 


one to add to my blog. Do you have ornaments you would like to share? If so, post them in the comments below.

I thought I’d begin posting my plans for the current or upcoming month. Today is the first day of December 2020 and here is what I “hope” to accomplish this month.


1.     Publish three or more posts per week to my website.

2.     Put the ARC (Advance Review Copy) of Slenderman out by the 15th, but more likely the end of December.

3.     Publish Slenderman by the end of the month.

4.     Send out my newsletter every two weeks or when the something like the ARC is available or book published.

5.     Finish Elantris and Reading Like a Writer

Since I have the problem of falling behind on what I plan to do, I hope that posting my monthly plans will help me accomplish the things I need to do.

The Silent Corner is the first book in Dean Koontz’s Jane Hawk series. Here’s part of the book’s description:

“People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn why, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America. Her powerful enemies are protecting a secret so important—so terrifying—that they will exterminate anyone in their way.”

I’m working on the novel Slenderman so I’d thought I’d post some of the notes I’ve been using to write it. These notes come from the book by Nick Redfern called The Slenderman Mysteries: An Internet Urban Legend Comes to Life. I didn’t know much about the Slenderman phenomenon so I had to do some research. I copied the notes below directly from my OneNote file.
