As part of H&H's 13 Days of Halloween celebration, we're showcasing original fiction of the chilling and thrilling variety written by authors, bloggers, and staffers! It's our treat to you, and it's available for a limited time only. Stories will be available for two weeks only, so read on, if you dare!
H&H staffer, newsletter guru, Gateway Experiment
guinea pig lord and master, and connoisseur of bromances the world of fiction over, Christopher Morgan is a man among women, many many women, at the H&H offices. And today we are thrilled to share with you a piece of original fiction by Chris. We give you “Charlie Cross, Necromancer”!
Cashing in on his “talent” for necromancy and landing a gig hosting his own reality TV show about things that go bump in the night isn’t proving to be all Charlie Cross dreamt it would be. Where was the fame? The fortune? The adoring
womenfans? But Charlie and his loyal, albeit unconventional, crew are about to catch a break. And her name is Elizabeth Naught.
Looking to prove fact from fiction, documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Naught never expected to be attracted to her subject. But from the moment she laid eyes on Charlie Cross, charmer and self-proclaimed ladies' man, she knew she was in trouble. But before she and Charlie can sort out their undeniable attraction, Elizabeth stumbles upon something neither she nor Necromancer-extraordinaire Charlie Cross are prepared for. Suddenly with Elizabeth and his crew’s lives at stake, Charlie must call upon the magics and rituals of old, the likes of which have never before been seen on primetime TV.
