Blog Tour: Guest Post: Creed

Welcome to my stop on the Creed blog tour! You guys will probably get tired of this before long because I'll be obsessing until I read it. I'm actually on the Book Blast next week, too! So what's it all about?


by: Lindsay Currie and Trisha Leaver

Three of us went in.

Three of us came out.

None even a shadow of who they once were.

When their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, Dee, her boyfriend Luke, and Luke’s brother, Mike, seek help in the nearby town of Purity Springs. But as they walk the vacant streets, the teens make some disturbing discoveries. The seemingly deserted homes each contain a sinister book with violent instructions on disciplining children. The graveyard is full of unmarked crosses. Worst of all, there’s no way to contact the outside world.

When Purity Springs’ inhabitants suddenly appear, Dee, Luke, and Mike find themselves at the mercy of Elijah Hawkins, the town’s charismatic leader who has his own plans for the three of them. Their only hope for survival is Elijah’s enigmatic son, Joseph. And his game may be just as deadly as his father’s . . .

Advance Praise for CREED

“Debut authors Leaver and Currie make an auspicious foray into YA horror...creating a believably desperate and terrifying situation for their characters, and Dee's history of physical and sexual abuse adds another layer of terror to this suspenseful and sporadically gory thriller.” ~Publishers Weekly

Welcome to a town that makes "Children of the Corn" look like child's play. There's no shortage of scary shenanigans happening in "Creed" ... We'd rather take a year-long gig teaching botany to the "Children of the Corn" than take a gas-and-bathroom break on a sunny day in Purity Springs. ~Kat Rosenfield author of Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone/ MTV News

"This is: a straight-ahead, cover-your-ears tale of terror that grows more nihilistic and grueling by the page.... Leaver and Currie do the best thing horror authors can do, presenting protagonists who make smart choices, over and over, but to no avail. Now that's scary" ~ Daniel Kraus/ Booklist

Guest Post:
Five places to avoid while visiting Purity Springs

1. The Sin Shack – Tucked away in the soy fields behind a heaping mess of irrigation equipment, this dark and isolating shed might look like the perfect place to hide. But trust me, you’ll come out of that place believing, doing, and saying whatever Elijah Hawkins wants you to.

2. Kitchen Drawers – While most will yield nothing more than a few innocuous dish towels and butter knives, be sure to steer clear of the first on the left. That one contains a leather bound book, one that will have you thinking twice next time you go to strap on that leather belt.

3. The Church’s Basement – Appropriately coined the “reintegration facility,” these tiles floors are easy to clean for a reason. I just advice against checking the drain.

4. Elijah Hawkins’s Closet – Pants, shirts, a couple of dog bowls and an enormous wooden paddle otherwise known as the “Board of Education.” And I don’t mean the kind you’d find Christian Grey’s Red Room!

5. Town Incorporation Sign – I wouldn’t bother spending too much time studying this rustic sign hanging one the side of the road. It changes daily…hence the reason Elijah Hawkins seems to buy them in bulk.
