So along with writing 'Talia's Kiss' and working I doubt I'll be reading too much more than that. Just finished 'Thinner' by Stephen King, but fancied a change of genre for the first time in a while.(less)

“Shadowchild! - Don't let her get in your head!”
Matthew Williams, Shadowchild

“The idea that the spirits of those once tortured in the house might still be there was the avenue his imagination began to explore. The groaning of the wood sounded like screams from the dungeon and the clunking pipes were the implements of torture. His bedcovers seemed to offer less protection than they had done in his younger years, he felt naked and at the mercy of his thoughts, and it wasn’t long before the skull he’d seen in the cellar had a face, manifested by fear and imagination.”
Matthew Williams, Shadowchild
