August is Peculiar Month!

Books & Boos Press is delighted to have partnered with Sci-Fi Saturday Night to create My Peculiar Family II: Celebrations.

When Chyna Dale discovers antique tintypes of family members she never knew existed, she becomes obsessed with uncovering their mysterious identities. Why hasn’t she heard of them before? What were they like? Most of all, what can this hidden bloodline tell her about herself and her past?

Plagued by questions, Chyna soon discovers that the deeper into her history she goes, the more peculiar her family becomes.

Fifteen established and emerging writers who have been featured on the hit show Sci-fi Saturday Night have been united to explore the strange family history of Chyna Dale in this thrilling new collection of short stories.

Your ‘Three A.M. Wake-Up Call’ is Available

We have released the final installment of the Terror Project series, THREE A.M. WAKE-UP CALL, this past Tuesday (June 5).

In coordination with our new release, we’re putting the first two books in the Terror Project on sale:

TRIPLICITY and THREE ON A MATCH will be $9.99 (30% off) for the paperback and $1.99 for the e-book (50% off) from June 4–10.

TRIPLICITY will also be coming out on audiobook any day now (I received an email from ACX on Wednesday saying it was “heading to retail,” but no indication of when it will be available). Tony and Rob, I’ll update you when it’s available.

THREE ON A MATCH is heading into audio production now, with an anticipated October release date for the audiobook. Then our narrator will move on to the final book.

Terror Starts at ‘Three A.M.’ in June

Books & Boos Press is pleased to reveal the cover for our upcoming release, Three A.M. Wake-Up Call. The third and final installment in the Terror Project series, the collection features three novellas: “Chew Toys” by Nick Cato, “Clinton Road” by Rob Watts, and “Roons” by David Daniel. 

The cover was created by artist A.L. Cortez, who designed the covers for Triplicity and Three on a Match, the other two books in the series. “I wanted each book to share elements that tied them together—the recurring central figure, whom I’ve come to think of as a ‘terror muse’—and repeating illustrations forming a pattern in the background. But I also strived to make each cover uniquely its own.”

The stories in Three A.M. Wake-Up Call bring the series to an end by returning to more traditional, haunting horror. Cato’s “Chew Toys” answers the question, What if Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz wasn’t lying about his neighbor’s dog ordering him to kill? with entertainingly gruesome glee. Watts’s “Clinton Road” follows the path of a woman struggling with the disintegration of her marriage who takes up residence on a road steeped in urban legend and rumored paranormal activity. The collection ends with Daniel’s “Roons,” in which a man in his middle years returns home to find a haunting mystery that has waited decades to be unearthed.

Three A.M. Wake-Up Call is scheduled for release the first week of June.
