Today marks the start of our 31 Days of Horror – 31 books, one each day, from now until Halloween. We’ll be spotlighting a book each day across social media, with a mix of novels, novellas, anthologies, and standalone short stories. There is an eclectic mix of sub-genres, so you are sure to find something to terrify you on the spookiest month of the year!
Full list of books here
Today also sees the release of the Halloween special issue of Indie Writers Review, with frightening short stories and poems, horror book reviews, and interviews with some of the best horror authors on the Indie scene. Available from Amazon or direct from us, here.
And if you need a big dose of horror this month, and prefer to hold a physical book, check out Boxes of Blood, for mystery boxes of hand-picked horror and exclusive swag!
Welcome to Red Cape Publishing
August was a fairly quiet month for us as it was the school holidays and there was a lot of camping, BBQs, and days on the beach (poor us!). Now that we are ‘officially’ back to work, we are busy putting together the Halloween special issue of the magazine, which is looking like it will be fantastic, with the chance to win three signed paperbacks! P.J. Blakey-Novis attended Hastings LitFest signing books and meeting lots of great writers, and we are in the process of organising a book fayre at the Brighton (Sussex, UK) Open Market in November.
The September issue is out now and includes a giveaway of Lucy Brazier’s awesome Portergirl: Sinister Dexter, one of the most fun books I’ve read this year. You can find my review in the issue. To enter just email firstname.lastname@example.org with IWR September Giveaway in the subject line.
We have been continuing to update our Pinterest page, so if you’re looking for something new to read then take a look at our recommended reads at www.pinterest.co.uk/redcapepublishing
Finally, we would like to offer a free book of your choosing! Just email email@example.com and request any of the three collections of short horrors (Embrace the Darkness, Tunnels, or The Artist), P.J. Blakey-Novis’ debut novel The Broken Doll (a steamy femme fatale thriller along the lines of Fatal Attraction), or even his children’s book Grace & Bobo: The Trip to the Future.
Welcome to Red Cape Publishing

The website, Boxes of Blood in particular, has gotten off to a flying start, with books having been shipped to Australia, Canada, the US and Ireland, and the feedback has been fantastic.

Keep up to date with the books being added to the list via our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/horrortoyou Plus there is FREE SHIPPING on all UK orders!
Indie Writers Review continues to gather momentum, and we are almost full for reviews and author interviews through to the end of the year! As our readership continues to grow, now is a great time to take out an ad for your book, or book-related service.
P.J. Blakey-Novis has been locked away in his writing dungeon these past weeks, working on the final parts of his third collection of short horror stories, and there will be FREE advanced copies heading out to those of you who have subscribed to the mailing list, so keep an eye out for that!
This past month we have been reading and reviewing some fantastic books, the reviews of which will be on Amazon, Goodreads, and in the magazine. Our top picks are THEM by James Watts (a copy can be won in the August issue), and Sinister Dexter by Lucy Brazier (a copy can be won in the September issue). These, along with a selection of other recommended reads, can be found on our Pinterest page at www.pinterest.co.uk/redcapepublishing.
