OBSIDEO: A Prequel to WILL HAUNT YOU Part 4

There is actually something very creepy going on with Brian Kirk's latest novel, WILL HAUNT YOU. It was inspired by a couple from his neighborhood who disappeared after finding a strange book in their home. Brian witnessed this event happening live on the neighborhood website Nextdoor.com, and has provided screen grabs of the ordeal, along with his reactions to each post as he watched the drama unfold.

Real testimony from the author, Brian Kirk...
"It was about this time that I began having dreams about the couple in this book, but it wasn’t Nancy and her husband Dave. It was a different couple. A guy named Jesse Wheeler and his wife Cassie. Jesse had read a book like this and was undergoing a similar experience. The story was so clear and complete it felt like it was being downloaded directly into my brain. And that’s when I knew I needed to write about it. That I wouldn’t be able to get it out of my head unless I got it down on paper. The next post was eerily similar to something I’d imagined for the story I was dreaming up."
 
From the author:
"I couldn’t sleep after watching that video. I wanted to keep listening to the recording, as though it contained some indecipherable clue. More, though, I wanted to know the source behind that sound. Because the protagonist in the new book I was writing had heard it, too."

    Meanwhile, be sure to check out the novel inspired by the book OBSIDEO: 

    WILL HAUNT YOU

    Book synopsis:
    You don't read the book. It reads you.
    Rumors of a deadly book have been floating around the dark corners of the deep web. A disturbing tale about a mysterious figure who preys on those who read the book and subjects them to a world of personalized terror. Jesse Wheeler―former guitarist of the heavy metal group The Rising Dead―was quick to discount the ominous folklore associated with the book. It takes more than some urban legend to frighten him. Hell, reality is scary enough. Seven years ago his greatest responsibility was the nightly guitar solo. Then one night when Jesse was blackout drunk, he accidentally injured his son, leaving him permanently disabled. Dreams of being a rock star died when he destroyed his son's future. Now he cuts radio jingles and fights to stay clean. 
    But Jesse is wrong. The legend is real―and tonight he will become the protagonist in an elaborate scheme specifically tailored to prey on his fears and resurrect the ghosts from his past. Jesse is not the only one in danger, however. 
    By reading the book, you have volunteered to participate in the author's deadly game, with every page drawing you closer to your own personalized nightmare. 
    The real horror doesn't begin until you reach the end. That's when the evil comes for you.
