I've never heard of click beetles, but I can certainly vouch for the way a old house and the noises it makes can certainly make you wonder if someone is in the house with you. Your MC handled her situation just right.
Great writing to build suspense. I was right there with the MC on the stairs. Those pesky night time sounds can really get a heart racing!
You did a grand job of pulling me into the story. You built the suspense with just the right pace. I've read a couple of stories this week about click beetles and yours was an exciting one.
05/02/13 husband is leaving tomorrow for a 3 day camping/fishing trip with the men from church, and I always hear ever noise at night when he's gone. Good writing. Great job! God bless!
Congratulations on placing 8th in Masters and 12 overall!
