Well, ghouls, the day has arrived. What day is that, exactly? The Day of the Door, of course! Laurel Hightower’s new, very much anticipated novel about family trauma and ghosts and other distressingly spooky stuff. Here’s Trevor Henderson’s terrifying cover art:

Once there were four Lasco siblings banded together against a world that failed to protect them. But on a hellish night that marked the end of their childhood, eldest brother Shawn died violently after being dragged behind closed doors. Though the official finding was accidental death, Nathan Lasco knows better, and has never forgiven their mother, Stella.

Now two decades later, Stella promises to finally reveal the truth of what happened on The Day of the Door. Accompanied by a paranormal investigative team, the Lasco family comes together one final time, but no one is prepared for the revelations waiting for them on the third floor.


“The Day of the Door is psychological horror at its best! Unresolved trauma within a dysfunctional family takes a blood chilling supernatural turn. Keep your Jacob’s Ladder handy because this book is electrifying and terrifying.”

-N.J. Gallegos, author of The Broken Heart

“The Day of the Door by Laurel Hightower is a sparking crucible of family strife from its brutal opening scene to its shocking end. Three adult children, whose lives have been shattered by the trauma of their brother’s death, finally get to confront the person responsible: their mother Stella. But that isn’t the whole story, is it? The Day of the Door is a propulsive, often terrifying read that diced my nerve endings. Take a deep breath before you dive in because Hightower always holds you under.”

-Chris Panatier, author of The Redemption of Morgan Bright and The Phlebotomist

“An intense shard of trauma, poised to cut you. Hightower is a master at extracting the heart of a haunting and stuffing us into the claustrophobic hollow left behind. I will never get the séance out of my head.”

-Hailey Piper, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Queen of Teeth and Cranberry Cove
