Look for This Latest Release in August!

By JW Kitson

People from the Lake

A ghost story that will make you think twice before closing your eyes at night!

My latest novel, set to release soon, is People from the Lake. If you’ve read my first novel, Song of the Tree Frogs, you were pulled into the dark world of two brothers struggling to overcome their father’s hatred and abuse. You also witnessed the restoration of HOPE when God’s unconditional love was shared with these desperate boys. If you saw the documentary, Gateway to Hope: Overcoming Heroin, you saw addiction’s destructive forces, but you also witnessed the restoration of HOPE for those who’d recovered. People from the Lake, however, is a little different. It is a twisted tale that will leave you wondering what might be lurking in the darkness, or what may be watching over you as you sleep…

A must read! So well written, pivoting, thought provoking and inspirational. It was difficult to put this book down. Not since The Shack, has a book had such a profound effect on me…

This is more than just another novel to read. It is a can’t -put-it-down story of the awful truths of family secrets, youthful endurance and hope. Can’t wait for the next work form this author!
