Hey there, everybody! The latest (and way, way delayed) chapter of my free Wattpad serial, The Afflicted, has been posted! Thanks to everyone who patiently waited for this! You can read the chapter here, and if you haven’t been following along from the beginning, you can start here.
After her father’s death and her mother’s hasty remarriage, Evelyn Whitney is handed over to the Shaker commune of Bannock, New York, into a life she has little chance of escaping. When the dead become monsters and community loyalties fracture, Evelyn must rely on John Quill, a young hired man, for protection from the terrors outside the commune, and the dangers within.
