Back Jacket Hack-Job #22 - SLASHVIVOR!

Another quality post brought to you by Steve!

Hey everybody!  Happy Labor Day!  Are you spending yours at the beach?  Perhaps you need a new beach read.  After that clever segue, let me introduce you to our latest Back Jacket Hack-Job: my very own SLASHVIVOR!

Of course, it's not just my own.  This novel was my first collaboration ever, and I worked on it with the incredibly talented author of THE BREADWINNER series, Stevie Kopas.  I think you're really going to enjoy how it turned out.

(Oh, by the way, if you think these BJHJs are fun, remember you can submit your own for possible inclusion on the blog.  Just reach out to me or one of the other bloggers.)

September 2017.  The Buddy System is ascendant.  The horror genre has grown stale and calcified through decades of nepotism and neglect.  True horror fans weep and light votives in their windows every night in hopes that someone will answer the call to revivify the genre.  Perhaps two someones...

Suddenly, with a single publication, the old order is turned upside-down.  With a heartbreaking work of pure artistic integrity two intrepid young visionaries - Stephen Kozeniewski and Stevie Kopas - buck the trend.  And is it just a coincidence that they have the same initials?

Their novel (perhaps better described as a political movement than a novel) blazes a revolutionary new path for an entire literary tradition.  The Buddy System is finally shattered once and for all, and horror finally has a future again...

Nah, I'm just fucking with you. It's THE HUNGER GAMES with '80s slashers, everybody! Wubba lubba dub dub!

The Real Back Jacket:

Try Not to Die

TV-XXX (Salty language, Sexual innuendo, Vomit-inducing ultraviolence)

TBA. Pirate transmission.

North America's number one reality television show returns with instant fan favorite Dawn Churchill, a plucky, hometown girl from the irradiated ruins of the former United States. Will she survive the night in the electrified, booby-trapped arena or will one of the serial killers pitted against her come out on top?

Returning slashers include evil animatronic Abraham Lincoln, eight-year-old “Daughter of the Devil” Abadonna, and all-time undefeated champion Denney the Killer Clown. (Plus surprise appearances by mad surgeon Doctor Feelbad, silver-tongued “Charming” Charlie Whitmore, and steel-clawed firebrand Razortooth.)

A night of chills, thrills, and endless buckets of blood. A must-see for Dawn’s innovative use of a shotgun alone. Fun for the whole family!

Host: Mark Winters
Producers: Marisol Martinez, Amy Green, Jacob Graves, Derron James (less)
