1858, A Slave auction goes wrong leaving a group of slaves displaced and traveling alone to Billette Hall. Led by a 15 yr old slave girl, they have to survive a 4 day trek in the woods, while unknowingly hunted by an axe wielding murderer.
A few years ago I got into writing screenplays for fun. I’ve completed and submitted one to the Nichols Fellowship screenplay competition, posted a few on websites and twitter etc. Billette Hall was one of the ones I was working on, I am now converting/fleshing out that screenplay to my new horror novel.
When I first started Billette Hall my thoughts were “why arent there any stories that take place during slavery times that isn’t actually about slavery?” Yea it takes place in slavery time, and that is the backdrop but the story can just be a story that happens during that time and not directly related to slavery.
