Fountain Dead by Theresa Braun Tour & #Giveaway

Fountain Dead
by Theresa Braun
Genre: YA Horror 

Mark is uprooted from his home and high school in the Twin Cities and forced to move with his family into a Victorian in Nowhere-ville. Busy with the relocation and fitting in, Mark’s parents don’t see what’s unfolding around them—the way rooms and left behind objects seem alive with a haunted past.

Of course, Mark keeps his ghostly encounters to himself, all the while sinking deeper into the house's dark, alluring, and ultimately terrifying history. As romantic entanglements intensify, the paranormal activity escalates. Past and present come together. Everything is connected—from the bricks in the walls to the hearts beating in their chests, all the secrets of Fountain Dead are finally unearthed.

My 5 Star Review

Fans of twisted tales of darkness, this one’s for you! Theresa Braun has brewed up a chilling tale that transects time and is perfect for young adult readers on up! 

FOUNTAIN DEAD splits itself between Mark’s POV in 1988 and Emma’s POV in 1862. What manner of evil can cross decades and bring their stories together?

When Mark’s family tore him from his friends to move to an old, Victorian home, he is about to find that the rumors of its haunting are more than mere ghost stories. If walls could talk, what would they say? What secrets do they hold? What is the connection to young Emma, from over a one hundred years before? Is she haunting Mark or pleading for help?

What’s uncovered in that old Victorian home will unleash past horrors into the present and as Mark’s family seems to implode, he may be the only one able to save them…

Theresa Braun’s tale drips with a sinister feel, yet she gives great detail to making Mark a stellar and well-developed character with a teen’s sense of humor, attitude and mental meanderings. Emma feels as if she is from another era, yet these two share a connection and they are not the only ones to feel it. 

This one came out in November, just in time to keep that Halloween spooky vibe going just a little longer, you know, when the trees are bare and the wind howls through the branches…and basements become a haven for terror...Read it, but keep a flashlight handy.

Theresa Braun was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and has carried some of that hardiness with her to South Florida where she currently resides. An English teacher and adjunct college professor for over thirteen years, she continues to share her enthusiasm for literary arts with her students. She earned a Masters in English literature with a thesis on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. In her spare time, she enjoys delving into her own creative writing, painting, photography and even ghost hunting. Spending time with her family and traveling as often possible are two of her passions. In fact, her world meanderings are often backdrops for her work. Striving to make the world a better place is something dear to her heart.
