Dreadful Tales is proud to announce Bleeder, the new serial novel from incredibly talented – Monica S. Kuebler. You might know Monica as the Owner/Editor of Burning Effigy and Rue Morgue Magazine’s Managing Editor, but she’s also a spoken word artist, poet, and author. For those of you who aren’t familiar, we’ve lauded Kuebler’s work with Burning Effigy Press about a thousand times over. In our opinion, she’s got the best eye for horror fiction in the whole damned genre.
Now it’s her time to shine, and we’re damned excited!
You can keep an eye on the Bleeder website for updates every Sunday, or keep yourself locked in to Dreadful Tales – where we’ll be giving you an update when every installment of the novel goes live.
See below for an exclusive, sneak-peek look at the amazing and haunting cover art, and blurb for the book.
What if everything you knew about your life was a lie?
What if the truth was much, much worse?
Mildred “Mills” Millhatten’s life changed forever the day she found out it wasn’t hers at all.
Forfeited as retribution for the alleged crimes of a father she’s never met, she’s cast into a strange, vicious world that she didn’t know existed and has little hope of understanding.
As a Bleeder – one whose lifeblood feeds the Nosferatu – her continued survival hangs ever in the balance. The creatures are keeping her alive because they believe her blood has mystical properties. Mills fears what will happen when they realize they are wrong – or are they?
If she hopes to survive and discover who she truly is, she needs an ally. She needs to befriend a bloodthirsty monster. Because she lives in their world now, and if she doesn’t do something fast, she’s going to die in it too.THE STORY BEGINS JANUARY 1 AT BLEEDERBOOK.COM
