- (1888PressRelease) May 07, 2012 - Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, announced the acquisition of the worldwide print and electronic publishing rights for the chupacabra horror novel "Building a Better Monster" from Santa Rosa, California author Christopher Treagus. Barking Rain Press also published Mr. Treagus's Jack the Ripper thriller, "In the Autumn of the Unfortunates," in January 2012.
If enough people believe in something, can that belief make it real? Explore the creation of mankind's newest monster, the Chupacabra, in this mesmerizing tale of the creature's origins. Beginning with the earliest reported sightings of the Chupacabra in the American Southwest during the mid 1990s, the creature soon weaves its trail of blood-sucking destruction into the folktales of Mexico and Puerto Rico. Part vampire, part animal, part alien, the Chupacabra is blamed for the slaughter of countless animals-and humans-throughout the region.
While the Chupacabra seemed to come suddenly on the scene from out of nowhere, it would not be the first time that the collective consciousness of humanity's wildest imaginings breathed life into a myth, giving it flesh and blood and deadly purpose. And now that we've created it, can anything stop its modern day reign of terror?
"Building a Better Monster" has been assigned to Barking Rain Press staff editor Allison Itterly of Boulder, Colorado. Publication for both the print and eBook formats of "Building a Better Monster" is anticipated for the fall of 2012. Interested readers can preview the first four chapters of "Building a Better Monsters" for free by visiting the Barking Rain Press website at http://www.barkingrainpress.org.
