What is a Night Worms Book Party? Basically, the Night Worms Review Team is made up of some very creative individuals so every Book Party will probably look different but for Hunter Shea's book SLASH, here's what it looked like:
- The whole team got a physical ARC
- We all posted on social media when we got it (exposure)
- We organized a weekend to post it in our feed (exposure)
- Mother Horror interviewed Hunter Shea (read it here)
- A postcard of the cover/synopsis was included in our package
- Today is our "One Line Review" post!

They move in, and despite dad’s best efforts, the house just feels off to everyone else. Even our protagonist, 10 year old Alice, who’s...
A few months ago, while looking through all of the books Flametree press had up for sale on their website, I noticed Hellrider. One look at the demon on that motorcycle and I was immediately sold on this book. I wanted to love Hellrider. I NEEDED to love Hellrider.
