Hey, everyone! I've been working on a pure horror story as a means of spicing up some of my writing. I've found that fear is a topic that demands enormous descriptive power; a mechanism through
which true human nature can be viewed. Horror has always held a special place in my heart, and it would mean a lot to receive some feedback on my work in progress! Thanks so much if you decide to
read!



"An ancient and mysterious church, forgotten within a timeless forest somewhere in the wilds of New York state, holds a dark and bloody history. Fanaticism, corruption, and sacrifice taint the once
sacred grounds of the holy site, yet as time passed, the dark events committed there faded from the memory of all who might have known.



Now, four men, tied through mutual interest and criminal intent, have been forced to seek sanctuary as they evade the local law enforcement after a nearly botched robbery. As they wait for the
storm to pass, a new cloud begins to darken the horizon, one that contains a fear and horror that will lay bare each of their troubled pasts and fears. Soon, they will all but forget the threat of
incarceration, as their very minds and bodies are thrust into what can only be described as hell."
