Melanie McKnight of Unplugged Book Box is launching her next passion project this Fall with Twisted Retreat, a monthly subscription box of horror and oddities for the twisted soul. Each month will be a retreat into the world of all things that go bump in the night. Boxes will contain a newly released horror title with an exclusive cover and theme-related products. “For those with a love for all things dark and wicked, this is the box you’ve been waiting for,” says McKnight.
Twisted Retreat’s October box debut will feature one of Apple’s Most Anticipated Books, River of Ashes by Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor (Vesuvian, August 2022). An idyllic Louisiana river town harbors a dark secret. The only son of a powerful family, born into wealth and privilege, is a psychopath whose madness turns to murder in this Adult series filled with mystery, a rising body count, and a chilling pact between unlikely friends. American Psycho with a Southern Gothic twist, Rue Morgue says, “Despite its ghosts and hauntings, this evocative tale presents an all-too-real terror that gets under your skin—and stays.”
