The Dark Carnival Approaches – Cover Reveal

dark_carnival-cover-banner in The Dark Carnival Approaches - Cover Reveal by Debra Kristi, authorOctober approaches. Autumn leaves are nearly falling. The Dark Carnival is calling, calling. Will you answer its call? Will you heed the beckon?

 The doors are opening.

 Will you leave with your life?


Last October a group of talented writers and illustrates shared their talent in a month long exploration of the Dark Carnival—a fun holiday event held at the Pen & Muse Blog. This October the compilation comes to you in the form of an anthology.

Are you ready?

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.

    I recognize a few authors on that list… one in particular. I think the cover is excellent… I would definitely pick it up in a bookstore to inspect. Looking forward to buying Dark Carnival, Debra.

    The creepiness continues. I like the photo but not sure I’d like the book. I’m getting goose bumps just thinking about it.
