In an effort to promote my new novel, The Door That Faced West, due for release in February 2014 from Lazy Fascist Press, I created the Dilation Exercise below based on the story. The novel is inspired by the earliest known American serial killers, the Harpe brothers, Wiley and Micajah, and the three wives they shared. Comments are welcome, but please do not expand on this storyline.
As night descended and the wolves continued to guard their prize, they were alert to every sound.
Despite the fact that the predators were intent on devouring Sadie, she decided they would provide protection should Reverend Rice found her.
