JR Wirth has set Destiny's Lot, A Halloween Love Story, in a time when life was simpler. There was no social media, mobile phones or email. People actually had to use a dial-up telephone, write a letter or communicate face-to-face. Children congregated together and interacted with each other, climbed trees, rode bicycles, and knew when curfew was. They enjoyed wonderful personal interaction. In Destiny's Lot, our young hero, JR, has a crush on Destiny and gathers his courage to ask her out. They set a date for Halloween night and JR is excited. He needs to take his younger siblings trick-or-treating first, but this is a minor obstacle to him; he has a date after that. After a busy work day, with a few surprises, JR sets off with his siblings on a trick or treating adventure that is about to head sideways. Unfortunately for JR, a date with Destiny is exactly what it is. This is a strange twisting tale by JR Wirth in Destiny's Lot, using the common practice of Halloween trick or treating. The book is filled with surprising and scary twists and turns and you never know what to expect next. A creepy Halloween story set in simpler times before the advent of major technology, which makes it even more creepy. From one page to the next, you are never sure what to expect and each chapter takes you through a fascinating look at the fears faced by many on this well celebrated and usually enjoyable holiday. I'm not so sure about that anymore. Fast paced and original, this tale is sure to delight all horror fans!

Book Description:

Long before there were texts, instant messaging, and endless social networks, we had phones and snail mail. And if we wanted a date, we actually had to talk to the other person first. This would often delay the inevitable, as we first had to gather our nerves in order to ask out the intended person. This was the case for young JR, who was looking forward to his long awaited Halloween date with the girl of his dreams. When he finally got up the nerve to ask Destiny out, she said yes. All he had to do was cut a few lawns to make a buck or two, and then take his younger siblings trick-or-treating. After that, he was free to enjoy his date, and join his friends at a legendary Halloween party. What could go wrong? The thrills start early that Halloween day, when JR decides to get an application for a job and a burrito at the same time. The workers at the fast food restaurant had different plans, however, and leave JR reeling, and wondering what happened. As he makes his way through the day, he is met with a host of obstacles and evil beings trying to eliminate him and his family. These implausible, chilling antics last throughout Halloween day and into the night. How will JR respond? Can he save himself? Can he save his family? And what about Destiny, can he salvage his date? Read Destiny’s Lot: A Halloween Love Story and find out.
