Hollowing Screams is a character driven tale of a mother and daughter’s betrayal, manipulation, and pure insanity. When lives tormented by paranoia and schizophrenic delusions collide with the aspect of the supernatural world, it sets off a multitude of bizarre and unexplainable events defying all reality. The inhabitants of a small midwestern town find themselves questioning their strict religious beliefs when confronted by a mysterious stranger with extraordinary paranormal abilities. Dabbing into the spiritual world of the unknown, Hollowing Screams will evoke mixed emotions from even the most skeptical of nonbelievers.
FEAR- TERROR-DEATH- it’s all around you! Can you feel it? It’s coming your way unless you heed my words. Listen to my warnings- STOP the impending doom!
Your town- Patton will be enveloped in evil- there is no turning back. My name is Lola- I see it all before it happens. So, can you- read this black book- take it from me if you dare- open it- and learn what are in store you, the town, your family, and others in the future? Relive your past, fear what is in the present, and learn who among you is the planner of the diabolical events that will plague your town unless stopped.
Do you hear the screams coming from behind the doors of this mental institution? Hollow Screams coming from the one who is evil. Do you hear it? Don’t listen. My name is Lola. I warned you. Did you listen?” This is one outstanding novel whose characters teach you the true meaning of treachery, fear, deception, lies and betrayal. An author so creative that she weaves a plot so intricate with incidents that not only blindside some of the characters but the reader too, this is one novel that is anything but Hollow: Filled with substance, plot and keeping you on the edge from start to finish.
Visit the town of Patton and find out what author Barbara Watkins has in store for the residence and just why Lola was sent there. A plot so well planned and defined and characters so vividly depicted and an ending, which leaves you wanting more. Wait: This one is due out in 2012. Heed my warning: Beware if you visit Patton before reading this book. Unless you meet Lola : Do not take the black book.
