Dayton, OH, December 21, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Forsaken by J.D. Barker receives Medalist Honors in the Horror category of the 2015 New Apple Summer eBook Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.
When horror author Thad McAlister (www.thadmcalister.com) began his latest novel, a tale rooted in the witch trials of centuries past, the words flowed effortlessly. The story poured forth, filling page after page with the most frightening character ever to crawl from his imagination. It was his greatest work, one that would guarantee him a position among the legends of the craft.
But was it really fiction? He inadvertently opened a door, one that would soon jeopardize the lives of his family.
She wants to come back.
At home, his wife struggles to keep their family alive. Secretly wondering if she inadvertently caused it all…a deal she made long ago. A deal with the Forsaken.
