Curiosity Quills Press has just finalized contracts with noir author Jon Bassoff (“Corrosion”) and screenwriter Jack Reher (Endangered Species (Red Machine)) to publish their upcoming Halloween thriller, “Rex’d Book One: Werewolves of Scholomance”, Bloody Disgusting exclusively can report.
The novel, upper Middle Grade and a ton of action-packed fun, is due out Spring 2014 in e-book and paperback form.
The novel is the first of a new series about teenage protagonist Rex, who quickly realizes that his life in a new town brings far more than the normal adjustment problems. As Halloween approaches—the first for Rex and his father since the horrific accident that claimed his mother’s life—he goes on a journey of self-discovery, and learns of the extraordinary events that led him to this sleepy town along the way. With astonishing powers and unasked-for responsibilities, Rex encounters the supernatural in ways he couldn’t have dreamed of. Only one thing is for certain; this particular Hallows Eve has much more in store for him than the usual tricks and treats.
“[I’m] beyond excited for Bassoff to be breathing life into this world and helping me kill some more monsters along the way. I think audiences of all ages will dig Rex’d and will appreciate the fun & clever horror that awaits this series,” said Screenwriter Jack Reher.
Says Curiosity Quills Press CEO and co-founder Lisa Gus, “When it comes to our entertainment choices, we are a very demanding culture these days. I am excited to see Rex’d finding its niche in both a purely textual and visual mediums, and eager to continue our collaboration with Nicholas Bogner and his talented team.”
