Teeth, Boogeymen and the Underground Railroad.

If I hadn't yet mentioned it, The Toothless Dead is available for purchase.
You can get it on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble...pretty much anywhere e-books are sold. Paperback is available as well.

This story came about from a conversation I had with my brother-in-law over dinner. He mentioned an urban legend from when he was a kid about a sort of boogeyman who would get the kids in his neighborhood if they didn't deliver their baby teeth to a specific manhole cover in town.

Creepiest thing you ever heard, right? Maybe not, but I'd bet it's up there. Something wholly unsettling about screwing around with someone's teeth. Fear of dentists, fear of things in your mouth that you don't want in there... So my mind set to wandering around in the dark and while I was in there, I met Zack and Amy, their brother Brad, Robbie--the new kid in town--and an old caretaker that the kids all call Mumbles.
The crew sets out on an adventure when one of their own disappears and the only possible suspect is the dreaded Tootheater.

I hope you'll give this book a read. I hope you'll like it. But most of all, I hope you leave your baby teeth on the manhole cover, because it would just be a shame if any of you ever disappeared.
