Billy Holiday -- Strange Fruit

New people come but rarely stay.

At first they are drawn by the charm of the cobblestone alleys and brick streets, by the church spires and dark thickets of trees. But a town that appears quaint from the outside quickly turns threatening, with undertones that make strangers uneasy and paranoid.

A darkness lingers here. A darkness that speaks to Rachel Burton and the people who belong.

What a perfect picture! The angles stabbing from the an undercurrent of viciousness in what should be a peaceful place.

Gein, Dahmer, and now, Stroud.
Why does Wisconsin get all the freaks? Must have something to do with farm equipment and milk.

This is the greatest promo for a book that I've seen. It's pure inspiration. I can't wait to come back and see what you add next. Ratcheting up the excitement here - September 5 seems so far away.

Hey Anne I came over from Eve's blog & WOW!! You have definitely piqued my interest here! I can't tell if it's real, half-real, or if you're weaving this story so well & convincingly that I can't tell the difference. VERY cool! (btw: LOVE the trailer video!)

Getting to know you is really turning into an adventure, you know.

Just finished my introduction to Tuonela & Evan & Rachel...

It's a rare thing for me to jump on the computer right away to find out more.

My first intention was to 'find it on a map'. I did a random search on Tuonela & found my way here.

Looking forward to more!

Actual photos to fill in the mental picture make my mouth water.
Great stuff!
