About The Halloween Street Series:
Halloween Street is a series of 31 short stories taking place during the same Halloween night in the fictional town of Hollowell. Although the stories stand alone and may be read in any order, there are subtle ways they intertwine which you will notice if you read the series in order.
A new short story will be released everyday in October (2014) as part of the L.M. Pfalz's 31 Days of Halloween project.
