A Haunting Tale For Halloween Reading


Haunting at Heidelburgh Mansion by Tracy Marchini

October is the time to get into a Halloween mood. Haunting At Heidelburgh Mansion is a great short story that includes characters from the “Hot Ticket” children’s series by Tracy Marchini. Juliet is the odd ball at her school, bullied by the most popular kids. She manages to get through the sixth grade with her good friend, Lucy. Like most kids at this time of year, they are trying to figure what to do on Halloween.

Trick or treating is for little kids, and Juliet isn’t invited to the big Halloween party given by her nemesis Cindy Newsome. Only thing left to do is crash the party. After all, it plans to be the coolest party in town, given at a supposedly real haunted mansion. But when Juliet finds out that the ghost in the mansion is real, they have a most unusual request. And of course, it’s the only way to help rescue her friend, Lucy.

I think this short story is a great way to get into the Halloween spirit. If you want a good read that gives the feel of a Scooby-Doo mystery, this is a story for you. There is even a sneak peek of the first book in the “Hot Ticket” series at the end of the short story. For 99 cents, it’s a great ebook to begin getting into the Halloween mindset. It’s definitely a “Hot Ticket” read.

About Tiffany Turner

I am a teacher by day, writer during the evening and weekends. I've written a children's fantasy series called the Crystal Keeper Chronicles. I've learned a lot as an Independent author. I want to share that now through blog posts, interviewing fellow authors, and reviewing other children's books. If you don't see it out there, build the blog yourself. I'm hoping to create a resource for people to find quality children's books that don't always fall along the lines of mainstream.
