Exorcises

Nick Harper

For the past year, Blood Rites Horror has released anthologies, collections and novels featuring dark entities, spirits, and parasite gods. 

Now it's your turn to wield the pen...

In this book, you'll find over 100 grisly prompts - from first lines to gory visions, from monstrous set-pieces to challenging descriptions - that will test your skills as a writer by focusing on Character, Setting, Monsters and Story in four chapters filled with challenges and "exorcises".


With space to write your own responses to these prompts, as well as tables, charts and tips, this book is the perfect starting point for a budding writer and a bit of fun for authors of any level of experience.

Nick Harper, author of This Lonely Carcass Song and editor of multiple horror anthologies, discusses writing horror, reinventing classic tropes, and more in the first (severed) handbook from Blood Rites.
