Greeneville, Tennessee author publishes scary children's book in time for Halloween

October 02, 2016

Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc., of Johnson City, Tennessee, announces the release of "Things That Go Bump In The Night," written by Greeneville, Tennessee, author Pauline E. Petsel.

The book tells the tale of a group of kids left at the bus stop with nobody to pick them up, trying to find shelter from violent winds and an oncoming storm. Why were the lights out and the phone cut at Mrs. Brown's house? What had happened to everyone? Who was walking upstairs in the old house? Follow the five children as they go through a terrifying time during the stormy night in Sleepy Hollow where things go bump in the night.

Petsel is a native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and retired in Greenville after years as a lifeguard and swim instructor in St. Petersburg Florida, where she also wrote a book on teaching babies to swim. In addition to her newest release, Jan-Carol Publishing published "Sparks," Petsel's memories of growing up in the "good ol' days."

Her first children's book, "Things That Go Bump In The Night," is available just in time for Halloween. "I am excited to have this book available before Halloween. It is the perfect time of the year."

Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc., includes the imprints Mountain Girl Press, Little Creek Books, Express Editions, RoseHeart Publishing, and DigiStyle. Each imprint specializes in a particular genre — from Appalachian stories to children's books and more. At JCP, believes "every story needs a book."
