Teaser Paragraph

Our ghost has gotten angry, and shredded a bunny and splattered it against a church wall:

"The hot mortality steamed in the cold night air, a few thin wisps snaking as far up as the old oak cross. Christoph, however, was utterly focused on the wet, ragged stain itself. For a moment he could not see his shame, but only the awful beauty of the blood."

Thoroughly creepy stuff! This paragraph makes me want to know what led up to the moment!

You killed a bunny! You horrible person! You can't kill animals or children in a horror book!

That is a funny thing. The level of cliche in the genre is sometimes astonishing, esp when you're looking for whom to kill (or not kill). I thought of the obvious choices - the wife's adulterous lover, or maybe the nosy neighbor - but I thought man, that's done in EVERY DAMN novel.

Make it a Shakespeare ending. Kill everyone.
