New Theme: Jackson

Another new theme this week, Jackson, named for Shirley Jackson, whose story “The Lottery” inspired many a high school short story writer (including me), and whose novel The Haunting of Hill House remains one of the most-loved books in the horror genre.

The Jackson Theme can be used with any number of types of books. The original inspiration was for horror, but this theme will suit literary fiction, mystery and non-fiction alike.

Fonts used are:
