Secret Santa: Win a copy of the festive horror!

Win a copy of Andrew Shaffer’s horror comedy, Secret Santa, with our latest competition!

Secret Santa

November is a strange month – you’re just coming down from the highs of Halloween and readying yourselves for the festive season ahead. Luckily for us, we have a mixture of horror and winter festivities to ease the transition with Secret Santa written by New York Times best-selling satirist, Andrew Shaffer.

Described as ‘The Office meets Stephen King, dressed up in holiday tinsel’ Secret Santa is horror-comedy set during the horror publishing boom of the Eighties and we have two copies to give away!

Here is a synopsis…

Out of work for months, Lussi Meyer is desperate to work anywhere in publishing. Prestigious Blackwood-Patterson isn’t the perfect fit, but a bizarre set of circumstances leads to her hire and a firm mandate: Lussi must find the next horror superstar to compete with Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Peter Straub. It’s the Eighties, after all, and horror is the hottest genre.

But as soon as she arrives, Lussi finds herself the target of her co-workers’ mean-spirited pranks. The hazing reaches its peak during the company’s annual Secret Santa gift exchange, when Lussi receives a demonic-looking object that she recognizes but doesn’t understand. Suddenly, her coworkers begin falling victim to a series of horrific accidents akin to a George Romero movie, and Lussi suspects that her gift is involved. With the help of her former author, the flamboyant Fabien Nightingale, Lussi must track down her anonymous Secret Santa and figure out the true meaning of the cursed object in her possession before it destroys the company—and her soul.
