Mothman’s Curse: A Giveaway

Get ready for your spine to tingle and your flesh to creep—in a nice way, of course! “Mothman’s Curse” is upon us.


Josie may live in the most haunted town in America, but the only strange thing she ever sees is the parade of oddball customers that comes through her family’s auction house each week. But when she and her brothers discover a Polaroid camera that prints pictures of the ghost of local recluse John Goodrich, they are drawn into a mystery dating back over a hundred years. A desperate spirit, cursed jewelry, natural disasters, and the horrible specter of Mothman all weave in and out of the puzzle that Josie must solve to break the curse and save her own life.

Kirkus gave author Christine Hayes’s book a shiny star, and called it, “An ectoplasmic extravaganza…tailor-made for reading beneath the bed covers.” “Curse” is also a Junior Library Guild selection and an Amazon book of the month.

Christine says, “I  grew up loving stories about the creatures that curl your toes, and the legends that send a shiver down your spine. Now I love writing about them, too. ” Find her online at
