BLURB:


An Australian Ghost town. A resident demon and a local Shaman. A confrontation with evil awaits. 


Clarisse realizes that running from evil is not a bad idea until you figure out you can't hide. When some ghosts get tired of hanging around, they latch onto you. At the centre of the war on evil is a historic Church that carries dark secrets within its walls. After she meets with the local Shaman, Clarisse discovers secrets with evil consequences by digging too deep into the town’s past. When matters become complicated, she visits a circus of young performers on the outskirts of town triggering unexpected paranormal events and unleashing memories of a one-hundred-year curse. After being caught in the crossfire of a battle for evil supremacy, Clarisse confronts Little Charlie as he rallies the town's ghosts into an impeccable evil stronghold. 


Can the local Shaman and townsfolk rally in her quest to defeat the evil incarnate or will the town succumb to Little Charlie and his evil crew? 


Haunting in Old Tailem is the third book of the Haunting Clarisse Series. If you like spine-tingling, chilling, creepy and spooky supernatural thrillers, then you will love this story by 2020 USA Readers' Favorite International Book Awards Finalist in Supernatural Fiction, Janice Tremayne.

EXCERPT

She heard a flurry of steps run across the graveyard as stones flicked off the ground and crushed, dried-out weeds propelled into the air. Tiny steps that she had encountered once before—in Hartley. Was it Little Charlie?


Then another ominous sound. Children laughing and giggling while the faint sound of a circus tune played in the background. Da, da, da, da, da …


She immediately turned around to find four children, each one standing next to an unmarked grave.


One little girl, no more than ten years old, with a black ponytail, knee-high cotton socks, and a white frilled dress, played with her hula hoop. She swung it around in motion and with the equilibrium of an expert. She smiled as her, dark eyes with thick, black eyeliner resonating toward Clarisse.


Next to her was a young boy, no more than eight years old, playing hopscotch between two graves. His knee-length shorts, long socks, and blood-stained shirt, held up by suspenders, were ragged and worn out. He looked like he had been in a terrible accident and dragged across the ground, oblivious to any pain. While playing hopscotch, he balanced three small balls in the air like a juggler, quite a trick and well-coordinated.


Next to him was Little Charlie, sitting on a gravestone with his rope lassoed and legs crossed. He swung his lasso repeatedly and flung it toward an empty can as his target. He liked showing off his prowess to Clarisse, even though he couldn’t say any words, throwing his hands up in the air each time he conquered his target.


Another girl, albeit younger than the first, stood behind Little Charlie on an unmarked grave. She was wearing a crimson dress with frills and brown, country-style boots. Her dress was tainted red in parts from bloodstains, and her face was white as snow. It accentuated the eyeliner around her black eyes and sculptured face. She tilted her head slightly to the side as her red hair was tossed around in the slight breeze while holding a Raggedy Ann doll next to her face. She looked directly at Clarisse, smiling while caressing the doll.


The Raggedy Ann doll smiled one thoughtful expression, blinked its right eye two times rapidly, and then nodded before going back to its original posture.

Author Interview 1. How long, on average, does it take you to write a book?
I usually can write around 50k to 60k words in about three months with a daily schedule of between 1k and 2k

per day. Of course, not everything will go according to plan every day!


2. How do you select the names of your characters?
I select the names of people I know or have met. For example, I encountered a person at my son's school called Burt. He's the dad of one of his school friends. It's an older name and not often used today. I kind of liked it, so I put it in my list of names for possible use later.

3. What are your top 5 favorite movies?
The Exorcist, Star Wars (the original), The Godfather (the original), Poltergeist, Carrie

4. If you were the last person on Earth, what would you do?

Look for another survivor. You just don't know who else is out there.


5. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

My advice is not to think you're going to be an overnight success with your first book. Infect, your first book may be ordinary. Keep learning the craft with each book and grow your capability. It will take many years to reach a good standard of quality.

Learn about book marketing and builder your readership. It's essential in this crowded marketplace.


Don't be put off by negative reviews. Some people think their opinion is the only one that counts—some of it misguided, angry, and behaves like English literacy teachers. Some are just trying to make a name
for themselves amongst their reviewer groups. Read the positive reviews and let that inspire you. They are the good guys that appreciate what you are trying to achieve with your writing.


6. What is your favourite genre to read?   Horror, Supernatural, Supernatural Suspense, Supernatural Thriller, Ghosts and haunted houses.
