It’s hard to believe we’re revealing the 5th cover for our novella series but it’s true. Lynne Hansen has done a magical job of bringing these tales to life with intriguing art and has done the same with Hollow Tongue. Author Eden Royce says, “I love this cover. With its warm shades of brown and bronze and the beautiful variety of butterflies, it feels irresistibly welcoming – like all good horror should.” We definitely agree on both points!

About the Book

After a major accident leaves her in a dire financial situation, Maxine Forest returns to live in her childhood home. The empty husk holds only the memories of her father’s abuse and her mother’s reticence to leave him: her parents are nowhere to be found. The cocoon of her past remains unchanged, yet wrapped in the ghostly remnants of her mother’s whispered insistence that things could change. Escaping the sins of her parents should be easy enough for Max, but those sins are intrinsic to her genetic make-up, so escape is impossible—succumbing, and metamorphosis, are inevitable.
