Look Out For … The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters

The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters - cover“Twisted revenge and childhood trauma is pure nightmare fuel in Walters’ capable hands with this haunting coming-of-age tale.”

Heather Cole and her friends were part of a special club … the Dead Girls Club. Exchanging stories about their dark obsessions, the girls talked about strange monsters and serial killers. One supernatural entity that got a lot of attention was the Red Lady. Killed centuries before, this witch has her sights set on vengeance. Of course, Heather knew those stories weren’t real. Her friend Becca insisted otherwise, and said she could prove it.

And that’s what got Becca killed.

Flashforward nearly 30 years. Heather knows the truth about that night, the night Becca died. The Red Lady is real, and Heather has never shared the story with anyone. Then a certain necklace arrives by mail, a necklace that is quite familiar to Heather.

She hasn’t seen that necklace since Becca died.

Since the night Heather killed her.

Someone knows what Heather did, and they’re going to make her pay.

Red Lady, Red Lady, show us your face…

Why we’re excited about this book:

Still relatively new to the horror scene, Damien Angelica Walters has certainly made a grand impression. Author of the novel Paper Tigers, and the collections Sing Me Your Scars and Cry Your Way Home, Damien’s fiction has been featured in numerous anthologies and fiction magazines online and in print. Twisted revenge and childhood trauma is pure nightmare fuel in Walters’ capable hands with this haunting coming-of-age tale. Gwendolyn Kiste (The Rust Maidens) says: “Damien Angelica Walters once again proves why she’s a major voice in the horror and thriller genres … Put this on your reading list now, as it’s sure to be among the top books of 2019.”

Why Damien’s excited about this book:

The Dead Girls Club is my first mainstream release and my first hardcover so while it isn’t my debut novel, it feels like it. It’s a hybrid sort of story: part-supernatural horror, part-mystery, and part-coming-of-age. I hope it has enough of each to satisfy readers and I hope the wider horror community loves the stories of the Red Lady.”

Coming from Crooked Lane Books on 10 December 2019, The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters is available for pre-order now.
