Here's one you should know about in case one takes up residence in your house.
Puck is best known as a house spirit that attaches itself to a household and tends to the leftover chores of the family. It will churn butter, do needlework, sweep the entry and perform many other manual tasks.
As payment Puck requires that someone from the abode leave out a gift for him, whether bread, cream, or something valuable. If the homeowner neglects to reward it or if you dare to cross it, Puck will undo the whole of its many labors.
And it will simultaneously cause misfortune to the family. In some stories, Puck is described as a nature of woodland spirit that shares a similar appearance to that of the Greek god, Pan. It often presents a mischievous nature, playing pranks on the unwary and leading travelers away from their original path with tricks and noises.
I hope you set aside time for reading over the Halloween weekend. If you have, please consider my latest release, CHASING THE DEAD, which fits the theme of Halloween very well.
Chasing the Dead, a Bannister Brothers Novel
The Apache kidnapped me to dispel an evil ghost from their village. If I tell them I don't possess the same skills as my madre, they'll cut my throat and feed me to the dogs. Celesta was the best spirit chaser in all of New Mexico before she died.
The most I can hope for is that Emmett, my fiancé, will rescue me. Is he capable of such a thing? Poppy must not have thought so because he sent Deacon Bannister to save me. Deacon…the man who walked away days before our wedding a year ago. The man who still melts my bones after one look.
We're running for our lives from Uday, the vaporous ghoul tracking us. He lusts after Sacheen, the beautiful maiden banished from the Apache village who travels with us. The warrior killed her father when Sacheen refused to marry him, and then Sacheen's brother killed Uday.
The ghost's powers grow stronger every minute on our journey back to El Vaquero...and so does my love for Deacon.
