Rady--Chapter 10 by Jennifer L. Stevenson

Just in time for Halloween, ladies and gentlemen, Jennifer L. Stevenson brings the conclusion to the Winston-Salem Writers' Serial Horror Novel, Rady.

In case you're just signing on, here is how it worked:

Jennifer L. Stevenson of the Winston-Salem Writers organizes serial novels that are posted on the Winston-Salem Writers' web site. Someone writes an initial chapter, then every two weeks a member of the Winston-Salem Writers takes up the challenge and writes the next chapter.

The Winston-Salem Writers have already produced a romance Safe At Home and a mystery Cheerwine is Fine. Jennifer takes the rather daunting task of tying the novel together and as all of you know, the first chapter is easy, it's that last chapter that will kill you [a teensy pun intended].

I really appreciate the Winston-Salem Writers giving me the opportunity to speak before their group and the chance to be a part of their serial horror novel. If you're a writer in the Winston-Salem area, look them up. They have terrific programs and they are an awesome group of fellow writers.

Oh, and have a Happy Halloween ...
