Here's a sneak peak of the new book I'm working on—one that's dark, seductive and enthralling even for me to write.
Let me know what you think! =)
If I believed the bedtime stories, monsters were to be found in the shadows, lying in wait, poising for an attack, and that if I were smart, I would never let myself be caught alone in the dark.
When I was eighteen, I realized that the dark concealed many things and not always just the monsters.
In the dark, we allowed our hearts’ true nature to show and in the secrecy of the shadows, we committed our crimes—big and small—and expected no repercussions because no one can stand to witness what they could not see. No one could tell whether it was man or monster or that they may be one and the same.
What I will tell you is not a simple story.
The details of reality blur at the edges of the mystical in this tale but what you need to understand is that it’s not about that.
It’s about the interplay between the shadows and the light and the people who were caught in between them for a brief moment, for generations and for eternity.
My name is Lily Carlson.
Let me start by telling you that on the summer of 1984, I fell in love with a monster.
