Writing group looking to publish horror romance anthology
What happens when Valentines Day comes right after Friday the 13th?
The scariest romantic anthology gets created. At least that’s what writing group Dead Puppets Society decided to do in 2015.
After meeting for over eight years, the group wanted to publish their work for the first time and share it with the public.
“We all had fun writing it and once it was finished thought it was really good,” said member Jenn Tubrett.
Along with Tubrett, other members James F.W. Thompson, Walter Carey, Jason Burke and Joel Inglis decided to release a Kickstarter campaign to help raise awareness for the anthology. Kickstarter is the world’s largest online funding platform for creative projects.
Only a limited 100 copies will be published. They are currently looking to raise $1,000 and will be rewarding all backers.
Rewards include a digital copy of the anthology, signed versions of the anthology, and for anyone who donates $100, the person will get to name a character in the published version.
The authors will also be delivering all pre-ordered versions from Kickstarter.
For anyone interested in buying a book or just donating to help their cause, visit kickstarter.com and search “The Hacker Inn.”
Tubrett warns readers that this is no book for the faint of heart. Readers should expect gruesome and unsettling content as it deals with mainly horror with a bit of love involved.
“The anthology deals with a lot of psychological aspects and is definitely adult themed. Definitely not your average kids campfire story,” said Tubrett.
The anthology will be released on Halloween this year. Any copies not pre-ordered will be sold at a local bookstore in Cape Breton that the group will decide on in the future.
