Stand By Me meets The Lost Boys in this first installment of an epic vampire saga.

In a small Massachusetts town, Scott Dugan and his tightly bonded group of friends do battle against a growing vampire army led by the town's long dead Civil War hero. Along the way, they'll find clues in the diary of a young boy not unlike themselves, and strength in their own unique bonds of friendship. But victory, if it's even possible, will come at a terrible cost. Some, like Dugan, will never be the same.

From the Author:

Thanks for taking a look at Applewood. Here's a little more about it:

Taking place mostly in the early 1980s, the book concerns a group of outcast middle-schoolers who live in a neighborhood called Applewood, in the fictional town of Grantham, Massachusetts. The main character is Scott Dugan, a fourteen-year-old boy who has recently lost his mother to cancer, and whose father is starting to lose himself to drink.

Scott (whose friends call him Dugan) is a good, hardworking kid, with an enormous paper route, who is dealing with all the usual adolescent things: bullies, money troubles, first romance. But his paper route makes him among the first to notice that things in his neighborhood have started to go awry.

Though he chalks it up to puberty, he has also recently learned he has an odd gift, the ability to touch certain objects and discern echoes of memories imprinted on them. It's a gift that will come in handy when he and his friends Jimmy, Larry, Moon, and Mike, discover that a long dormant vampire in the form of the town's long dead Civil War hero has come back to life and has already started changing their friends and neighbors.

Inspired by books such as Summer of Night by Dan Simmons, and 'Salems Lot by Stephen King, Applewood was a heck of a lot of fun to write. And don't forget to check out its sequels Fledge, and The Space of Life Between, which pick up where Applewood left off. Once more, sincere thanks for checking it out!
