Haunted Hallowen: Sean Ferrell + A Giveaway!

Years ago, before I was born, thunder woke my grandmother in the middle of the night. She sat up because of a presence in the room. Standing at the foot of her bed was my father, soaking wet, dripping rainwater onto the carpet.

He looked at her and said, "I am all right. I saw the rain."

My grandmother blinked and in that moment my father was gone. She was certain something had happened to him.

Miles away my father was standing at the side of a highway, getting soaked in the thunderstorm. He had been driving home. He hadn't seen the car with its lights out, didn't see that it had broken down, perpendicular across his lane of traffic. He didn't see the driver in the road behind the car waving his arms. He only saw the car when his smashed into it. When the accident was over he heard children crying.

Amazingly, no one was hurt. But as he waited for the police and the tow-truck, he stood beside the wreckage, getting soaked, as the rain dripped off of him, thinking of how close he'd come to being hurt, or hurting someone else, or worse.

Title: Numb

Syopsis: Numb, a man who feels no pain and has no memory of how he came to be this way, travels to New York City after a short stint in the circus to search for the answers to his past. But when word of his condition spreads—sparked by the attention he attracts from letting people nail his hands to bars for money—he quickly finds himself hounded on all sides by those who would use his unique ability in their own pursuits of fame and fortune. There’s the best friend who doesn’t quite know how to handle Numb’s newfound celebrity, the savvy talent agent who may or may not have Numb’s best interests in mind, the sadistic supermodel whose idea of a good time involves lion claws and can openers, and the blind girlfriend who might actually see something in Numb others don’t. As Numb navigates this strange world, and as he continues to search for clues from his past, he is forced to confront one of life’s toughest questions: Who am I?

  1. Weird. I almost think it'd be kind of odd not to feel pain. Sounds like an interesting read.


  2. What a cool story. I've heard about a lot of people that just knew something bad had happened to someone they really loved before finding out about it.

  10. I actually believe things like that happen every once in a blue moon. Not necessarily a loved one popping up right there in front of you but having some connection to them, some gut feeling when something terrible happens.

  19. hmm...that had to be a weird, chilling experience for your grandmother. I know I wouldn't be able to sleep again until I talked to them if that happened to me.

    jlynettes @ hotmail . com

  20. Not sure which struck me as more odd...the story of your grandmother's clairvoyance or the blurb about your book...both gave me chills, but for different reasons. I'd hate to be totally numb.

  21. Wow the story was really interesting to read! Numb sounds like a good book; it must be sorta cool to not feel pain, but also dangerous. Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. Wow interesting story! It'd be cool to be numb, but also scary because you can't feel the pain that's hurting your body..

    sophiayunjin @ gmail . com

  23. Oh my goodness what a strange story! He was so lucky that no one got hurt, and it's freaky that the grandma dreamed about him..
