Haven't heard of A WHISPERED DARKNESS? Check it out!



Title: A Whispered Darkness
Publication date: August 26, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Vanessa Barger
ISBN: 978-1939765390

When Claire Mallory’s father leaves, her mom moves them to a new town and into a dilapidated Victorian house.

The old house creaks and whistles, and smells well — like it’s been abandoned for years. But as the nights grow longer and the shadows take on substance, Claire wonders if the strange sounds and occurrences might be more than the house showing its age.

Just as things start to pick up in Claire’s love life, her mother becomes possessed. In an attempt to save her mother and their new home, Claire enlists the help of two boys, each of whom is interested in Claire for different reasons. As she chooses one boy over the other, something dangerous is unleashed, and the spirits make their move.

They aren’t content to moan and scream inside Claire’s house, or even control her mom. They want a taste of freedom, and she’s their key to getting it. But is Claire strong enough to fight off the evil spirits, or will they claim her and her mom before it’s all over?




Now on to the playlist!

Hello! Thanks for having me today! I thought maybe I’d steal your blog and let everyone see the playlist that I listened to while writing A WHISPERED DARKNESS. I usually have music on when I write, and this is no exception. Sometimes it helps to get me in the mood if I’m not already there. On some occasions a scene will be scripted out in my head to a specific piece of music. In that case, I hit repeat and hope no one else is home to try and stop the madness before the scene is written.

So here it is!

Sail by AWOLNATION

I hope that you enjoy the playlist, and maybe even identify some of the places where the music might have been useful after reading the book. And I’m always looking for new artists/music, so feel free to let me know of anything you think I need to hear!
