The Night Worms Review Team loves to come together around a book. SAVAGES by Greg F. Gifune was a happy accident. I shared Matt's photo of SAVAGES to our group chat with a "Hey, this cover, huh?? Wow!"
And then Matt talked about how this was one of his favorite books and before you know it, we're all buying it and agreeing to read and review it as a big group.
So here we are! It's about that time. ~Sadie Hartmann
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!
“Slasher” is a recognizable and popular genre of horror films but it is also a hotbed of activity this year in horror fiction. I read three slasher books so far in 2019 and while I used to think all slashers were created equal, CAMP SLAUGHTER convinced me that some slashers rise above the stereotypes.
Typically, Slasher books have a large cast of underdeveloped characters in order for the “psycho killer” to have plenty of people to hunt, maim and kill. I’ve also found that slasher fiction isn’t too concerned with plot,...
Typically, I try to have a live-chat with an author so that our conversation can organically go where it wants to and I can feed off their responses in order to formulate the next question but in the case of Hunter Shea and myself, our schedules were just not lining up. I did suggest we pray to the Horror Gods to see if the stars and planets would align just so but Hunter thwarted my efforts by showing me a far simpler solution: Emailing my questions. So that's what I did and Hunter emailed back his answers.
