Dilation Exercise 85

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 soon as the Harpe Brothers’ eyes met Sadie’s, she knew with a horrible certainty they had killed the Fischer family.

Seeing Wiley’s eyes narrow and Micajah’s jaw tightening, she quickly relaxed her features and put on a smile.
