From Holly Newstein Hautala:
Exciting news about Rick’s last unpublished novel, WAITING! A sold-out limited edition will be available from Cemetery Dance Publications this year, BUT – ebook and trade paperback editions will be published in October (of course) from Haverhill House Publishing! Afterword by Christopher Golden and cover art by Glenn Chadbourne, and an intro by me.
WAITING is a classic Rick Hautala book, with the claustrophobic, visceral creepiness that characterizes almost all his novels. More details to follow.
We will be debuting our editions of WAITING at the 2017 Haverhill Halloween BookFear this October. And needless to say, we are honored to be publishing Rick’s last novel.

For the first time in her life, Allie Prescott is alone. She’s left her husband, Jack, and moved out of their comfortable home. Now she’s living in a small second-floor apartment in a not-so-nice part of town and working as a waitress in a downtown restaurant. She’s struggling to figure out what she wants to do with the next stage of her life.
As much as Allie wants to be alone, what she doesn’t know is that even when she’s in her apartment … especially late at night … she is not alone.
She is never alone.
Unseen eyes are watching her. Pale, ghostly shapes slip in and out of view. Faint, whispering voices tease her in the darkness.
The spirits who haunt her apartment have been there for a very long time … alone and waiting.
Now they’re beginning to manifest themselves because they know — and Allie will soon learn — that they have been waiting for her and her life will never be the same …
