New Horror Anthology

Hi Everyone:

I wanted to announce a new project I’ve been working on this past year: a Horror Anthology book to benefit Scares That Care, a charity based in Maryland to benefit children’s hospitals and other children’s charities.

I’m very excited about the project. We got some great authors to contribute, some really creepy stories, and a beautiful cover by D.E. Christman, a Philadelphia-based Horror Artist who’s appeared at conventions throughout the region. Those of you familiar with the Horror Host community may recognize the names of several of the authors involved.

Please visit the website and check it out. The publisher, Tricorner, is headed up by a great guy who is giving every penny not directly involved in physically producing the book to Scares That Care if you buy it from him directly. If you wait to buy it from Amazon, that margin goes down considerably, as they (and other bookstores) take a big cut right off the top.

Thanks, and if you can, pass this along to anyone you think may be interested.

Nina Ely
(a.k.a. Kuzibah of The Patient Creatures)

Spiders. Snakes. Darkness... These are the fears that begin in childhood. The ones you grow out of, right?
Moths. Mirrors. Fish... The irrational fears. The ones you can easily explain away.
Disease. Floods. Death... Not even phobias, really. Just the little anxieties of modern life...

Eleven of today's most exciting horror authors present tales of childhood fears that linger on for good reason. Because the phobias are real, and they're coming for you.
All proceeds from the purchase of this book go directly to the Scares That Care charity for children.
Elizabeth Massie - Fear of Fish
F. Paul and Meggan C. Wilson - Itsy Bitsy Spider...
John Dimes - Music for Twilight and Darkness
Thomas Tessier - Something Small and Gray, and Quick
