R.L. Stine on Twitter
You have to wonder if the creators behind Twitter had any idea of how influential and informative the site would become. For instance, author R.L. Stine has used it not only to announce the renewal of his TV show, “The Haunting Hour”, but also to unveil a new very short story.
Just a few hours ago Stine tweeted regarding “The Haunting Hour” on The Hub network: “Thank you, all who asked. I’m happy to announce that my TV show, The Haunting Hour, has been renewed for a 3rd season. Lots more scares.”
Pretty cool, right? In addition, earlier this month Stine revealed some news about his upcoming novel Red Rain coming this fall from Doubleday Young Adult: “Thanks, all, for your questions about my hardcover adult horror novel. It’s called RED RAIN, and it’ll be published in October.”
Here’s the book’s synopsis courtesy of Amazon UK:
A chilling and bloody tale for older readers from the master of horror, R. L. Stine.
When Lea Sutter visits the Caribbean island of Chat Noir and witnesses a devastating earthquake, she is moved to adopt two beautiful, blue-eyed orphan twins, Daniel and Samuel, and take them home to America. But Lea’s own children sense something strange and wrong about the boys and their innocent, oddly old-fashioned ways – and soon after they arrive, a terrible accident takes place on their doorstep. As more grisly and suspicious events take place, the boys’ true origins – and their evil intentions – become terrifyingly clear.
