    That'll be a real time saver!

    It's been nearly a year since we received an update.

    I'm guessing it's going to be another disappointing Halloween.

    Sigh.

    Repost from 2 years ago: This has become a test of will and character for me. I will not give in, I will not waver. Even if my children get this book instead of me, I WILL NOT CANCEL LOL!!!

    I agree. I love the description Mr. Partridge provided.

I hope he is still working on this project because I have really enjoyed some of his other work, but we're entering Year 8 and it's been awfully quiet for a very long time.

    Going through and revising chapter by chapter to change up some character stuff, and then I need to write the end. I figure it'll end up about 40 - 45 k. Here's what I've got right now if you want a look. It's basically a seventies horror movie (that takes place in the early eighties) mashed up with "something in the woods"--that's the Halloween train fun ride, scarecrows, etc., but really something bigger about the heart of the holiday itself. With the characters, it's about what you'd do/how you'd react if you knew you weren't going to make it out of a situation alive.

    Thanks.
    I would love to have one to share, but Norman was still working on things last time I heard from him. I had really hoped it would be out for this Halloween, but unfortunately that will not be the case. I will post news the moment I have ANYTHING I can tell folks. Thanks again for your patience on this one.

    He's working on the last second now, and then it'll be into revisions. I think he said the final word count is 30,000+.
