Book Description

What happens when you're driven to create at the risk of losing your very soul?


Original screenplay adaptation of the author's 2004 novel THE MANOR. When artists gather at a remote mountain retreat, their energy feeds the fire of a slumbering spirit. DRM-free.

After paranormal researcher Anna Galloway is diagnosed with metastatic cancer, she has a recurring dream in which she sees her own ghost. The setting of her dream is the historic Korban Manor, which is now an artist’s retreat in the remote Appalachian Mountains. Drawn both by the ghost stories surrounding the manor and her own sense of destiny, Anna signs up for the retreat.

Sculptor Mason Jackson has come to Korban Manor to make a final, all-or-nothing attempt at success before giving up his dreams. When he becomes obsessed with carving Ephram Korban’s form out of wood, he questions his motivation but is swept up in a creative frenzy unlike any he has ever known.

Sylva Hartley is an old mountain witchwoman who is connected to Ephram Korban both before and after his death. Her knowledge of Appalachian folk spells and potions has bound her to the manor in a deeper and darker way. Sylva harbors a family secret that refuses to stay slumbering in its grave.

The manor itself has secrets, with fires that blaze constantly in the hearths, portraits of Korban in every room, and deceptive mirrors on the walls. The house’s brooding atmosphere affects the creative visions of the visiting artists. A mysterious woman in white calls to Anna from the forest, while Mason is driven by the whispers of an unseen critic. With an October blue moon looming, both the living and the dead learn the true power of their dreams.

It’s a power that Korban craves for himself, because he walks a shadowy land where passions burn cold and even the ghosts are haunted. And Mason and Anna are dying to join him.
"Scott Nicholson understands that the best horror novels achieve primal fear through a combination of sustained atmosphere, richly drawn characters, and believable if uncanny evils that draw unholy power from everyday lives." --Christopher Ransom, author of The Birthing House

"Keep both hands on your pants, because Nicholson is about to scare them off."--J.A. Konrath, Origin

"Scott Nicholson explores the dark legends of the southern end of the Appalachian mountain chain, a nightmare country that ends in Stephen King's yard."-- Sharyn McCrumb, author of The Ballad novels

Scott Nicholson is the kind of writer who always surprises and always entertains."--Jonathan Maberry, Patient Zero

5.0 out of 5 stars interesting haunted house tale 28 Dec. 2010
By M&M - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Since I read the old paperback The Manor, I thought I'd give the screenplay version a try. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy to follow, and there are changes from the original story. Spooky and with a Gothic flavor, it's worth checking out if you have any interest in the supernatural, the paranormal, screenwriting, or horror movies. I'd love to see this on the screen!
5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy Goodness! 27 Nov. 2011

Format:Kindle Edition
This book made me want to cover my eyes and hide in the closet - but I couldn't put it down long enough. You won't find a typical ghost or haunted house story here. The plot is original and kept me on edge from start to finish. Scott Nicholson has a gift for breathing life into his words, inviting us to step into his characters' world and share their experiences. If you're looking for horror with substance, this is the one for you.
5.0 out of 5 stars Modern day gothic-horror-ghost story :) 10 Dec. 2011
By Georgeanna - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Possession, witchcraft, slow and painful deaths, voodoo-type dolls that trap souls, insane lust for power, and some frustrated artists. Scott Nicholson adds some very strong personalities to these bizarre elements, and it totally works :) Some scenes were so scary that I raced through them without even blinking once! I'll be looking for--and reading--more of Mr. Nicholson's work!
2.0 out of 5 stars I don't like the screenplay presentation 29 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just cant get into this screenplay idea. Wish it were just a story. Haven't gotten past the second chapter.
Is this story presented any other format? I really like Scott Nicholson as writer and have read nearly a dozen
of his books but this one just doesn't cut it for me in this format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative Spirit 18 Dec. 2011
By druidgirl - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a mystery but not with the stereotypical haunted house. The story had some different relationships and trials. The characters were well thought out and realistic. I did not want to put this book down and I would highly recommend it as a good read for anyone. Well done Scott.
