Mama Thinks I'm Crazy

By Taylor Anne Butler All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror

Prologue.

The shadows are always scary when I walk outside. No one sees them or hears them. They're in agony. Lost souls trying to get out. I always try to go outside my house in the day time, never at night. Hearing them is like hearing a piercing scream everywhere you go, even when you're sleeping. Sometimes I see them, they look at me. Hoping that I help them. When I sleep and wake in the middle of the night is when its worse or when I look out my window at night and I see their ghostly white faces.

When I was little I used to see them more so than now. I would be in class and the teacher would turn out the lights, they would come out of the shadows to talk to me. I always felt trapped. My mother never understood but my father did. He always said to try and help and they will go away. But every time I tried, the ghost would always come back.

13 years later at age 18 in Eichen House, and I still can hear them. The doctors keep telling me I am insane but I know that I'm not because even sane people hear voices inside their head they just don't listen to them, but these voices are not in my head, their from the outside world. No matter how hard I try I just can't seem to get them out of my head.

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming). She's one of my favorites now. The spelling mistakes are normal no big deal, the amazing plot makes up for it. Thank you ...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...
