Trying To Be So Quiet & Other Hauntings by James Everington

TTBSQ Cover KINDLEv2.jpg

Trying To Be So Quiet & Other Stories presents three stories about love, loss and the horror that comes when grief removes our reason for living from the world.

In ‘The Second Wish’, a son coping with the sudden death of his parents returns to his childhood home only to find that, despite everything being familiar, things inside seem increasingly unreal.

In ‘Damage’ a grieving lover loses all sensation of pain as she tries to make sense of her enduring grief.

The title story is a novella telling of a husband’s struggle with the reality of his wife’s death as he remembers their life together. Although haunted, he struggles to find the ghosts that assail him as meaningful as the bleak fact that he is now alone. But that doesn’t stop him seeing them…

"A small, quiet, poignant novella about grief and significance... No noise, no fuss, just good, honest writing about the things that matter.“ - Gary McMahon, author of The Grieving Stones on Trying To Be So Quiet


“An exemplary example of the ability for quiet horror to chill a reader to the core.” – Ginger Nuts of Horror
