If it were 1965 and we all lived in a small town somewhere in Wisconsin, I’m sure we’d all gather ’round Kathy Kexel’s porch on brisk Fall evenings to eat some hard candies and listen to the latest story she’d spent the day developing.
Sometimes, that story would be heartwarming, and sometimes it would be scary. But it would always be good.
Today, Kathy brings us a story about a Halloween never experienced, but an experience that has outlived many other extant Halloweens for many years. Check out her story, The Hallowe’en that wasn’t.
f you have the time, please check out the sites for ALL of the Fondue Writers: Joseph Courtemanche, Jamie D. Greening, Kathy Kexel, Derek Alan Elkins, Rob Cely, and Dr. Paul Bennet. If you like what you see, why not pick up a few copies of their books? It covers the cost of everything, and it gives us hope in those long, dark nights when we’re dreaming up new stories, wondering if the monsters in our heads matter only to us, or if one day they might come out of the dark to terrify you as well.
If you’d like what you see, you might also check out our first collection of short stories, The Covid Quarantine Catina, written during the first months of the Covid-19 lockdowns. It’s available in Kindle, Paperback, and Audio formats.
Derek Alan Elkins will be back on Wednesday with another Halloween story. Until then, keep preparing for that final holiday, keep hoping it never comes, and always always … don’t break anything
