Blood Bound Books is proud to announce our first charitable anthology: Blood Bank!
Charity is a cornerstone of our company, and our three flagship initiatives can be foundhere. So when Mark Scioneaux asked for our help in bringing his anthology idea to life, we knew we couldn’t resist.
So far the T.O.C. features: Neil Gaiman, Jo Kaplan, Jeremy Robert Johnson, Lucy Leitner, and Patrick Frievald, and we are signing new authors every week.
As more details become available, including cover art and an official release date for 2022, we’ll announce them on our blog and social media pages. Proceeds of the anthology sales will be split between Read Better Be Better in Arizona and Hagar’s House in New Orleans.
Please take a moment to find out about their missions:
Have you ever wondered what goes on in the ball pit at Cheesy Chucks after hours? Let’s expand on that a little, I’m sure you’ve wondered just how often they wash their balls… 😆 You’ll get answers to questions you never knew you had when you read INTO THE PIT! (Did ya see that 5★ rating?!)
Did you love Toxic Love? Did you think #HORRIBLE was horribly awesome? What about HornWolf? Let me just quote myself on that one, saying it’s cool – in a Serbian book kinda way… 😉 Well, we KNOW how much I dig the series, and can’t get enough, so this is HUGE Yay! news for me! What are your thoughts on the series so far? Comment here, or on the books individual review pages if you’d rather.
I don’t know how things are where you live, but Michigan’s governor has added visits to family members to our ‘stay at home’ order – unless it’s a medical emergency. That sounds like a great reason to stay home and read!
Some #HolidayHorror suggestions

I Try My Best
This is a short story about one woman reliving her past failures and dealing with the guilt she faces daily.
Ashwood. A quiet Midwest town where nothing much happens. That all changes when the mutilated bodies of a young couple are discovered in the woods. Chief of Police Cynthia Carver initially dismisses it as an animal attack. However, the discovery of sexual assault against one of the corpses leaves her baffled. As more bodies pile up, Cynthia will discover the assailant isn’t an ordinary animal. And unless she can stop it, she may be his next victim…
When his balls are blue and the penis rises, the wolf comes out!
I don’t think that I’ve read anything by Evan Romero before, but I’m looking for more now.
This is a surprisingly fun read – in a ‘Serbian-Book‘ kind of way!
Hornwolf is no longer available on Amazon, or on BloodBoundBooks‘ website. So, it looks like my main point of this post is to say ‘Suck it, losers!’
I’m just kidding!! And, I’m sure you’ll be able to find a copy (unless something really weird happened) if you contact BloodBoundBooks, or the author. In the meantime, I’ll try to find answers re: RedLine, and I’ll keep you updated!
I love this one. I put the book down because I really started to think about the different people… Maybe I’m a bit more twisted than some, cuz I think I’d like to sit and people-watch at this point, too
I never thought about how this could be a viable source of income for certain individuals, or how fucked up it is when you think about it for more than a minute!
The mental torture that they must endure… wow …
I feel like I’ve read this one before, but not sure when or where.
*(Update: it was in the first volume of the D.O.A. Extreme Horror Anthology)
It made me feel claustrophobic.
It’s funny how most people, myself included, value the lives of animals over most humans.
Hmmm. I suppose that kids don’t really understand how wrong certain things are – but most kids don’t have these feelings, do they? I’m not sure.
Good story telling got me in the right head space, but I still don’t know if he’s just a very lonely & confused little boy, or something much darker.
Not sure what to make of this yet. I have to chew on it for a bit longer.
Angie, not exactly ‘boys will be boys’ material, is it?
Judy, think a little harder and/or longer when it comes to your mom, huh?
And, well, Courtney… If vibrators killed spiders, we wouldn’t need men at all now would we?
I wonder… If ‘Death’ wanted to find/have/keep love, could s/he?
It’s a heartbreaking thought, so an existential crisis might be a lighter topic to dwell on.
* I especially like the “self-inflicted stupidity” sentence 😉
Bypass my squeamishness you say… 😶
X SKIPPING Y:
Best beginning sentence ever.
Ishmael can suck it!
Well. That was disturbing.
THE BLUE SCHNOOKLYBOB:
I’m not going to try to play the scholar, and say that this story’s ‘symbolism is clearly a statement about the blah blah & bullshit in today’s society…’
And, honestly, I’m usually not into sci-fi, but I enjoyed this short.
I’m still giggling about how we, as humans, have better profanity, and our bitching is top notch!
BTW – I want a schnooklybob. A pink one, not a blue one.
TASTELESS: WARNING: “THERE IS NO SAFE-WORD”. RE-READ THE INTRODUCTION TO THIS BOOK. KNOW THE DEFINITION OF TRANSGRESSIVE HORROR. READ THE #RULES. THEN READ THE FORWARNING BEFORE THIS STORY.
A review? I just can’t.
I needed to nope out at the second page, but I forced myself to read every word, with tears streaming down my face. Why? Because I used to know a woman who’s story is quite similar. The woman was not involved, the man was the birth father, and the infant (don’t judge me) thankfully did not survive. Like the author states in the forewarning, the physical logistics were too much for me to even try to comprehend.
I read it for Nevaeh.
