The Dark Carnival Approaches...


Can you feel it in the air? Something wicked this way comes...

The Dark Carnival is creeping closer, and what better way to start the week than with a couple of teases for this terror-filled anthology? There are many attractions at the Dark Carnival, each of them guaranteed to be worth the price of admission.


Perhaps you'd like to start off your visit to the carnival with a show? In Megan Schuler's "Sleight of Hand," magician Percival Creepe and his assistant Vera give an audience full of skeptics a performance they won't soon forget.

And what couple's trip to the carnival would be complete without a visit to the Tunnel of Love? We all know love can make us do crazy things, and in Julie Hutchings' "Love Consumes Us," one couple's love becomes an insatiable hunger.  


There are so many more attractions at carnival (including one I wrote), and your ticket will be available soon, as The Dark Carnival: A Pen & Muse Anthology is almost here. Oh, and it's also COMPLETELY FREE! You can add the book on Goodreads now, and you can check out the Pen & Muse website for updates on the book's release. Here's the full details on the anthology:


The Dark Carnival: A Pen & Muse Anthology

Blurb: In this anthology, several authors and illustrators explore the dark and hidden dangers that lie within a carnival that has come to town. But it is no ordinary carnival. It's The Dark Carnival. And when The Dark Carnival comes to town, there's no promise that anyone can leave...alive.
