Leap Books (who published the BEWARE THE LITTLE WHITE RABBIT anthology) (shameless plug), has just released a brand new anthology of middle grade holiday horror stories! It’s so much fun, you guys.
Scroll down for a $10 Amazon gift card giveaway and to find out how you can win a copy of the anthology–but first, check out the blurb:
It’s the most wonderful time of year…or is it?
Christmas Eve is a night of mystery and magic, but not always in ways we expect. Things lurk in the shadows and they’re not the least bit jolly or merry. Let’s just say some presents are better left unopened.
‘Tis the season to be screaming along with our thirteen tales of holiday horrors. Ghosts. Monsters.Demons. And more!
This Christmas, be careful what you wish for…
I’m lucky enough to feature an author whose story was one of my favorites in the collection: Dax Varley! Her story is called “Die, Nutcracker, Die!” and I buzzed through it so fast. High tension all the way through. Varley sets up the conflict right away and delivers a fantastically creepy tale of an antique Nutcracker out for blood.
Dax Varley writes the kinds of stories and books she wishes were around when she was a kid. She’s author of Sleepy Hollow, Return to Sleepy Hollow, Bleed, and Nightmare House. Dax enjoys reading and writing horror and loves all the eerie bumps in the night.
And if creepy-eyed, violent nutcrackers are not your jam (though I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t be), there are twelve more stories in the anthology that will scare the socks off your inner twelve-year-old.
OK, on to the giveaways!
