Dilation Exercise 87
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 Sadie awoke and became aware that she was being dragged into the darkness, the sound of a heavy object striking flesh came from behind, and she was released.
She turned toward the commotion, saw Micajah grappling with an Indian in the moonlight, and struggled to believe she was not still dreaming.
