SAVOY: Christa Carmen (Something Borrowed, Something Blood-Soaked) Book Release Party

Savoy Bookshop & Café presents a book release party for Westerly author Christa Carmen's new horror and dark fiction short story collection, Something Borrowed, Something Blood-Soaked. This event is free and open to the public.
Thirteen tales within the realm of horror & dark fiction: a chainsaw-wielding young woman defends herself against a trio of ravenous mutants; a bride-to-be comes to wish that the door between the physical and spiritual worlds had stayed shut on All Hallows’ Eve; a lone passenger on a midnight train finds that the engineer has rerouted them toward a past she'd prefer to forget.
