Kimmy, Aaron, Emmanuel, and Trinity’s lives get turned upside down when they decide to explore a haunted house.
They find a magical book filled with wicked stories and instantly a magic symbol brands them. They become the new generation of Book Masters tasked to keep the evil villains from escaping their stories.
It gets worse when a new media teacher Mr. Case. Has the students playing a V.R. game that has them coming back as lifeless creatures, developing some kind of flu, and getting taken out of school one by one. Trinity develops the mysterious flu and the group is convinced that Mr. Case is really T.C. Skeleton, one of the villains from the magical book.
But when the confrontation backfires, they are forced to play the virtual reality game themselves and are sucked into a terrifying version of their own town. With no choice but to face their ultimate fears made real, the four kids must beat T.C. before they are stuck in the game forever.
Magic Fright is a middle-grade Horror Fantasy novel complete at 24,459 words. It is written as a stand-alone novel but has the potential for a sequel. It will appeal to fans of Goosebumps and Hocus Pocus.
Legend has it that the house on 253 Creepster Road is haunted. I nicknamed it the Fright House. It’s a tall two-story house with a cone shaped roof top. There are windows on all sides of the house. Some tall some small and all in rectangular shapes.
The house is known for its monster growls and haunting appearence. Nobody dares to go in. Except me and my best friends Aaron of course. I’m Kimmy a seventh grader and future top news anchor in the making. My school has its own news station and seventh and eighth graders run it. Eighth graders usually get the anchor spot but I’m going to change that today.
How? You might ask? Well our teacher Mrs. Bartlet (Weird name, Right?)
said whoever comes up with the best story gets the spot and that’s going to me. My only competition is Trinity she is in the seventh grade too and is always trying to outshine me. But I got her this time. I convinced Aaron to come with me and film while I solve the infamous Fright House mystery. By convinced I promised to do his homework for a week.
Well todays the day and standing outside this house I’m slowly starting to regret this plan. This house gives me the creeps. The windows look as if they are painted black. The white paint is peeling off the sides of the house and suddenly a bright light flashes from the attic window.
“Did you get that?” I grab Aaron who is playing with the camera. He points the camera to the window, but the light is gone.
“Sorry, I was trying to get all the settings on this thing right,” says Aaron.
“Ugh! We needed that for the story. Follow me,” I say. Aaron follows behind with the camera on record. I walk up slowly towards the black gate surrounding the house.
“Make sure you get footage of all this for some awesome B Roll,” I say.
Aaron shakes his head.
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
