We weren’t sure if this would come together in time, but I’m pleased to report The Halloween Children, which I co-wrote with Norman Prentiss, will be published in trade paperback for the first time ever this October!
Amazon already has their copies, and Cemetery Dance will be shipping this title in time for Halloween.
More news to come! Thank you for your continuing support and enthusiasm!
I just noticed that The Halloween Children, which I co-wrote with Norman Prentiss, is discounted right now to just 99 cents! I have no idea how long this deal from Hydra/Random House will last, but if you missed out or think you might want to re-read the book down the road, now might be the perfect time to grab a copy. Thank you again for all of your support!
Later this month, Carcosa will be publishing a new hardcover edition of The Halloween Children for the Czech market! This was my first collaboration, with good friend and incredible writer Norman Prentiss, and this will be Carcosa’s first-ever hardcover AND it’s also the debut title in their new Halloween series! They loved Vincent Chong’s cover from the US trade hardcover so much that they licensed it for their market as well:
Just a general reminder, my Level 7 supporters on Patreon will automatically receive a signed copy of this new foreign edition whenever I receive my contributor copies. (I’ll be asking Norman to sign them, too!)
I’m very pleased to report that The Halloween Children, the novel I wrote with Norman Prentiss for the acclaimed Earthling Halloween Series a few years back, will be re-released as a trade hardcover by Cemetery Dance Publications later this year, featuring stunning new cover artwork by Vincent Chong.

Fresh Blood posted a terrific review a while back, and here’s just a little taste:
Although Halloween is still some months away, there’s no excuse not to get yourself in the mood with a good Halloween tale. Which is exactly what authors Brian James Freeman and Norman Prentiss have delivered with The Halloween Children – a solid, creepy, tale of horror and paranoia, in the vein of Stephen King’s The Shining.
For example, The Behrg has posted a review that represents a very fair and balanced assessment of the novel — and of course I would say that considering the praise you’ll find in this short excerpt:
The savvy reader begins to get the real picture of what’s going on by what’s NOT being said. I’ve always enjoyed the unreliable narrator motif, and it’s used here in quite a unique way that’s not fully understood until you reach the end… this has one of the best endings for a book I’ve ever read. The thematic metaphors woven throughout one of the most tragic and shocking finales you’ll find… as I was reading I felt as if my jaw kept dropping lower and lower. Beautifully crafted, this is horror that will affect even the most jaded of horror fans.
