A Horror Novelette

They were only going out to dinner and a movie.

But their plans go astray, and friends Cassie, Mary, Denise, and James decide to take a detour down a lonely mountain road. A felled tree blocks their passage and forces them to turn around in a clearing containing a disturbing arrangement of four deer carcasses.

Then their truck breaks down, and their cell phones don't work. They must brave the cold December air, nightfall, and a long hike. Yet their troubles are just beginning. Tension runs high between the four young friends ... and they are not alone. Each step brings them closer to safety, but will they make it to the main road alive?

Includes the monster's origin story "Nightmare at the Freak Show."

Once Upon a December Nightmare is approximately 15,000 words or 53 pages in length.

The other stories in the Nightmare series include Nightmare Ever After as well as the entire collection The Nightmare Collection.
