Cover Reveal for THE FOURTH WHORE by EV Knight- Published by Raw Dog Screaming Press

Raw Dog Screaming Press is extremely thrilled to reveal the cover for The Fourth Whore by EV Knight, her debut novel which is set to release in mid-March of this year. A reader favorite, artist Daniele Serra’s imaginative art creates an eye-catching cover.

 

Thoughts from the Author –

 

“When I heard Daniele Serra would be creating art for my debut novel's cover, I had a rush of emotions ranging from thrill to sheer panic,” author Ev Knight said. “He's so talented and I want my work to deliver all the emotions his illustration promises.  The cover art is stunning. It manages to capture the suffering and entrapment of the title character, while simultaneously revealing her sense of hope and longing. She's hiding in plain sight, bleeding while she fights for control of her soul.

I hope that a reader scanning the shelf will see her and relate to something about her. If they do, this book is for them. I couldn't have asked for a more appropriate cover for my debut novel.

I'm so excited to share The Fourth Whore with the world. Now, maybe more than ever before, the apocalypse looms like threatening storm clouds on the horizon. The horrors in this book feed off the real-life horrors all around us and yet under all that darkness, there remains a spark of hope. I hope the reader can escape the real world and enjoy the thrill ride of this book, safely strapped into their seat, arms and legs inside and know that at least, in this novel, they will arrive unscathed and breathless at the end.”

About The Fourth Whore -

In the age of #metoo, EV Knight’s raw debut novel turns horror on its head. The time of helpless, scantily-clad female victims is over. Oh, there’s still gore and sex and terror to be had, but women villains and heroes alike are now free to break the mold and go off-script. Unpredictable, challenging, harsh and violent the new apocalypse isn’t brought on by four horsemen, it’s four whores instead.

 Fans of Sarah Pinborough and Ania Ahlborn will appreciate this new, twisted, female voice in Horror.

Back Cover Copy -

Kenzi Brooks watched The Scribble Man collect her brother’s soul after a hit and run when she was seven. He gave her a present that day—a lucky rabbit’s foot. Sixteen years later, she no longer believes in The Scribble Man, she believes in survival and does what she has to in the slums of Detroit. When thugs kill her mother and beat Kenzi to near death, she accidentally releases Lilith from her prison within the time-worn keychain.

 

And Hell hath no fury…

 

Lilith is out for revenge. Revenge against God, Sariel (Angel of Death and Kenzi’s Scribble Man), and all of mankind for relegating her to nothing more than a demoness for refusing to submit to her husband. She’s put together an apocalyptic plan to destroy everyone who has forsaken her. Forget the Four Horsemen, Lilith is assembling the Four Whores.

Advanced Praise -

 

“Death falls in love and all hell breaks loose, and the repercussions are deadly…a soul-sucking mind-bender of a debut. A cutting and explosive feminist text of revenge and redemption, with blood, spilled on every page.” —Lee Murray, two-time Bram Stoker nominee, and author of Into the Mist

 

“Extreme and extremely ambitious, Knight’s first novel is heretically horrifying and satisfyingly sick on every page. Knight revises biblical myth, unleashing female sexuality as apocalyptic revenge in a way I’ve never seen done before, and I’ll probably never see again. An unforgettably twisted and powerfully driven novel that brings extreme horror to gender politics in a devastating way.”—Michael Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Grave Markings

 

“…a sharp, violent beauty through an original Lilith tale, but also with the story of womankind’s revenge…singeing our curiosity with hellfire and inviting us to dive deeper into darkness. Knight’s debut novel centers on titillating horror where the revelations lure you in and refuse to let your soul float away without a price. If you think you know the story of Lilith, think again, and let Knight take you on an unforgettable journey into the underworld.” 

—Sara Tantlinger, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Devil’s Dreamland

 

“Betrayal is a bitter pill to swallow, but when you’re the mother of all witches you might want to exact some revenge while mending your broken heart. Lilith is back with a vengeance and she’s assembling the girl gang to end all girl gangs—literally—to kick-start the Apocalypse. EV Knight’s debut novel kicks you in the nards and leaves you breathless. But, if you’re anything like me, I was secretly hoping to be invited to the end of the world celebration where women reclaim their power and bring mankind to its knees.”  

—Michelle Renee Lane, author of Invisible Chains

EV Knight, Biography - 

EV Knight is an American author of horror and dark fantasy stories filled with bad-ass females. The Fourth Whore is her debut novel—the story of a young woman’s fight to find the truth in time to save her world after she accidentally releases an ancient demoness who has a vendetta against God Himself. EV is currently working on her second novel which takes place in her beloved home in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Raised on Grimm’s Fairy Tales in a country home near the woods, EV inevitably developed a whimsical imagination and lifelong interest in the macabre. 

These days, when not writing something spooky, EV spends her time taking long walks through graveyards and visiting haunted houses. She collects skull art and death-related oddities. When she is feeling adventurous, she enjoys road trips to unusual roadside attractions. Yes, she has, in fact, been to see the biggest ball of twine in Minnesota. 

EV is inspired by mythology, fairy tales, and history such that there are often kernels of truth in her fiction. No scary thing is off limits. And she doesn’t shy away from gore. Like Frankenstein, she likes to experiment and piece things together until her creation breathes on its own. EV hopes you’ll love her monsters as much as she loves making them.
