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.
