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.

August Happenings: Sales, Releases, and Jeff Strand

Books & Boos Press is thrilled to announce Jeff Strand will have an original short story in our upcoming darkly funny anthology, tentatively titled A Sharp Stick in the Eye (and Other Funny Stories), edited by Rob Smales (you can find our submission guidelines here). Strand is the four-time Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of 30-plus books, including Blister, A Bad Day for Voodoo, and Wolf Hunt. His most recent releases are the YA novel Stranger Things Have Happened, and Everything Has Teeth, a short story collection. That he agreed to be in the anthology had all of us here doing a rather silly yet utterly respectful happy dance.

We’re also excited for Three on a Match’s upcoming release on September 5! Keep an eye out for the book trailer, which will be made public mid-August. Three on a Match is the second installment of the Terror Project, and features novellas from talented authors Melissa Crandall, g. Elmer Munson, and Kristi Petersen Schoonover, and is already garnering accolades. Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of The Twin’s Daughter, calls it “spooky, sinister, spine-tingling: these three keep-you-up-all-night tales . . . have it all!”

In celebration of Three on a Match’s release, we’re going to offer the first installment in the Terror Project, Triplicity, on sale in the week leading up to the publication date. Keep an eye out for a deep discount on this fantastic trio of novellas from Tony Tremblay, Rob Smales, and Stacey Longo!

That’s not the only sale we’re offering this month. Sasha & Jake by Terry George will be 30% off the print book the week of August 13, and the ebook will be only 99 cents! Keep an eye out for an opportunity to get the free must-have accessories of the fall when this book goes on sale: if you leave a review on Amazon, you’ll get a special prize, hand-crafted by the author!
