Help Fund The Illustrated Horror Anthology Series “Chilling Tales for Dark Nights”

Created in late 2012 by author and lifelong scary stories fanatic Craig Groshek, Chilling Tales for Dark Nights is a popular horror-themed audio storytelling brand. Produced by Chilling Entertainment and through collaborations between a multinational team of independent artists, Chilling Tales for Dark Nights is known for its immersive, high-quality audio book style productions, which includes a YouTube channel and three iTunes 5-star rated horror podcasts through their  Simply Scary Podcasts Network.

Now with the help of donations and support via a Kickstarter campaign, Groshek and his team are making their first foray into horror publishing with a new fully-illustrated horror anthology series also titled Chilling Tales for Dark Nights. The series will include collections of original folklore-inspired scary stories (up to 30 or more), creating the impression that the reader is actually enjoying a terrifying tale passed down through generations.

The collections will be illustrated by Simply Scary Podcast artist David Romero, whose use of eerie black and white sketch style clearly harkens back to the work of Stephen Gammell as featured in the popular Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series.

Each book will be produced in an eBook, paperback, and audio book format. The audio book edition will also include stories told in a full-cast format, complete with sound effects and original music.
