by | Feb 21, 2024 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

“Week of the Clown” is the start of a twisted horror series known as The UnWanted Series. It begins with a troubled high school boy named Matt Vokes. Matt was the strange kid in school. He wasn’t a football fan, but he loved going to the games. He looked for any reason to paint his face. Matt tried to be a good kid. However, the world around him kept evolving with evil. He had made a horrific discovery. His high school football team had made a plan with evil intentions. Matt decided to stop them before they could hurt anyone.

Matt put a stop to their parties, and several of the football players ended up behind bars for a very short time. After their release, the players started putting pieces together and realized who made the call.

The football team wanted revenge for Matt ruining their plans. They decided to teach Matt a lesson. After a brutal beating, they left Matt tied to a cross at an old church for punishment. It was only meant to scare him and make him understand that he was not in control. They were shocked to find out that Matt didn’t survive.

Fear rose very quickly. They started to panic. Their lives started to crumble around them as police and others questioned why a teenage boy wearing face paint was beaten to death on a cross. The team begins to think that they are safe, until one of them is found brutally murdered with a word carved in blood.

Whitten and the other players begin to panic as they start to see the dead clown in the shadows and in their nightmares. The next day, another one is found dead in his room, with another word written in his blood.

Another day brought another death. They start to see a pattern forming with their deaths and the strange words. Sins. 7 deadly sins. 7 team members. 1 evil. The remaining teens are trying to put every piece together to find a way to stop the murders. They all know it is Matt who is after them. They had seen him. They know that no one would ever believe that they were being haunted and hunted by a dead classmate. Whitten and the others try to do whatever they can to survive the monster that they have created in this graphic, terrifying story of revenge and evil.

This story begins the ever-changing and twisting UnWanted Series, creating chains of reactions that may cause the entire world to burn to the ground. Matt’s evil spirit changes with each death that he causes. He gets stronger and gains an unnatural, eerie power he calls “The Power of the Clown”. Week of the Clown was specifically crafted with terror and graphic scenes to set the stage for the rest of the series. Matt Vokes’ life and death connect more than just the seven bullies who beat him and left him to die on a cross. His entire existence brings more fear as the series continues.

The Week of the Clown is a very interesting story for me as the author. I started writing this novel as a slight form of therapy. The bullies in this tale are based heavily on the bullies I had in real life. Even the entire first chapter is exactly what happened to me in high school. I had the premise for almost a decade before I started the first manuscript. I wanted the story to roll smoothly and create as much fear as I could. I wanted the characters to be truly alive for the reader, so their demise would make an impact. I am a huge horror fan; so I wrote this as if it were a movie playing in my head. My intentions for Matt Vokes were to create a monster that would reign with icons like Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees, and Michael Myers. That is why I was so thrilled when “The Author’s Lounge” requested an article on this novel.

I had spent years working on and perfecting this piece of horror, drawing inspiration from dozens of different classic tales and modern monsters. The Week of the Clown is by far one of the most terrifying novels I have ever written. I take pride in this work.

The Week of the Clown and the rest of the Unwanted Series are for sale on Amazon. The series is not quite finished as I am working on another installation.
