Not all things in the orchard are safe to pick.
Coming from Vagabondage Press Books.
September 25, 2012.
After an unfortunate incident on a Maine apple orchard, precocious teen Scree is left with a father she’s not sure is hers, the chores and raising her flaky brother’s baby. In a noble move to save the child from an existence like her own, she flees to a glitzy resort teeming with young men just ripe for the picking. But even as life with baby becomes all she’d dreamed, Dali-esque visions begin to leach through the gold paint and posh carpets…
Fans of The Haunting of Hill House, The Lovely Bones and Carrie shouldn’t miss Bad Apple—the dark, surreal ride that proves not all things in an orchard are safe to pick.
“…Bad Apple is great in an engrossing, haunting, Shirley Jackson We Have Always Lived in the Castle way. There’s an immediate real feel of the earth, and emotional need, and a connection between the two which is both familiar and off, but off in a way we all recognize.”
~ Stacy Horn, Cyberville, The Restless Sleep, Waiting for my Cats to Die
“Shirley Jackson fans, take note: Kristi Petersen Schoonover has crafted a gripping novel that will leave fans of modern horror screaming and cheering.”
