Praise for It Will Just Be Us:
“A rich, dense supernatural thriller…Horror fiction fans will also want to check this out.”
Publishers Weekly

“A fantastic ghost story…you should probably read during the day.”
Manhattan Book Review

“This novel is so clever and effortlessly atmospheric it deserves to find a wide audience beyond the traditional horror crowd…Highly recommended.”

“The plot rolls out like a swirling drain…Kaplan has concocted a miasma of insanity and witchery a la We Have Always Lived in the Castle.”

“Will leave you with chills.”
Fresh Fiction

“A Gothic horror world that would make Shirley Jackson proud…wholly original, and utterly absorbing.”
—Kathleen Kaufman, author of Hag and the Diabhal trilogy

“A chilling, poetic, modern Gothic masterpiece. Evocative and reflective, this is a story that haunted my imagination for many a night.”
 —John Palisano, Bram Stoker Award-Winning author of Ghost Heart

“Marvelously atmospheric, emphatically suspenseful and beautifully written, Jo Kaplan’s It Will Just Be Us had my full attention from its deliciously creepy first page and kept frightening me straight through to the end.”
—Laird Hunt, author of In the House in the Dark of the Woods

“This mysterious world sucks you in and keeps you turning pages.”
—Scott Kenemore, author of Zombie Ohio
“There are few new writing stars rising faster or shining brighter than Jo Kaplan…Beautifully hypnotic and eerie, this novel is a must-have for fans of the literary macabre.”
—Eric J. Guignard, author of That Which Grows Wild 

“Jo Kaplan channels Shirley Jackson adding her own depth and haunting style. The best haunted house novel I’ve read since Sarah Langan’s Audrey’s Door.”
 —Daniel Braum, author of The Night Marchers and Other Strange Tales

“Kaplan writes with extraordinary skill and authority, balancing the supernatural with the psychological…A vibrant, thrilling novel of family love and conflict.”
—S.P. Miskowski, author of I Wish I Was Like You

“It simmers with darkness and danger and kept me turning pages until late in the night. I loved it!”
—Damien Angelica Walters, author of The Dead Girls Club

“A truly chilling novel with an ending that will take your breath away. Mad Catherine’s house is (literally) the stuff of nightmares, and in Julian, Jo has created one of the most frightening characters I’ve come across since Gabe from Pet Semetary.”
—Melanie Golding, author of Little Darlings

“A triumph of gothic fiction. Haunting and addictive, the evocative language leads the reader along a deliciously horrifying path to an ending we both dread and wait for with held breath. A must-read for horror fans.”
—Darcy Coates, USA Today Bestselling author of The Haunting of Ashburn House
