Queen of Teeth paperback cover, date

Some Queen of Teeth updates! Firstly, the order period for the hardcover is almost up. After June, no more hardcovers will be for sale, so order while there’s still time. Hardcovers will ship out in midsummer.

Next, Rooster Republic Press has revealed the paperback cover art by Don Noble and the paperback’s release date of November 1, 2021! They’re exploring doing reduced price paperback pre-orders this summer, so more on that when info is available.

“A powerful, beautiful horror story.” – Kirkus in a starred review

I was also recently on a couple podcasts to discuss my new collection Unfortunate Elements of My Anatomy, which is also now available on Bookshop. Check out the episodes of Cursed Morsels in April and Deadhead Space in May.

 

 

Novel Announcement: A LIGHT MOST HATEFUL

While my first novel, Queen of Teeth, is still heading your way later this year, plans are already in motion for 2022.

 

April 10, 2022, Off Limits Press will be publishing my second novel, A Light Most Hateful! I’m psyched to be working with them again, and I can’t wait to share this new mind-bender of weird horror with you.

Also, I missed posting a link to when Gordon B. White interviewed me for Nightmare Magazine on my first published book with Off Limits Press, The Worm and His Kings (and about other things too). This was a thorough and interesting bunch of questions! Find the interview here.

QUEEN OF TEETH hardcover art reveal

Happy March! It’s at last time to reveal the cover art for the hardcover edition of my upcoming queer body horror novel from Rooster Republic through their imprint Strangehouse Books: Queen of Teeth! Feast your eyes on this gorgeous art by Nicholas Day, with the synopsis beside it:

Within forty-eight hours, Yaya Betancourt will go from discovering teeth between her thighs to being hunted by one of the most powerful corporations in America.

She assumes the vagina dentata is a side effect of a rare genetic condition caused by AlphaBeta Pharmaceutical, decades ago, when she and several thousand others were still in the womb.

But, when ABP corporate goons upend her life, she realizes her secondary teeth might be evidence of a new experiment for which she’s the most advanced test tube . . . a situation worsened when Yaya’s condition sprouts horns, tentacles, and a mind of its own.

On the run and transforming, Yaya may be either ABP’s greatest success, or the deadliest failure science has ever created.

The hardcover can be pre-ordered directly from Rooster Republic from today until June 30. After that, no more hardcovers will be available, but the paperback will release in late October/early November with cover art by Don Noble. If you check the site, you’ll also find the book’s first few paragraphs, the hardcover’s interior artwork, and more.

Hardcover orders will ship out in July. I can’t wait for you to meet the Queen.

The Worm and His Kings early reviews; Novel announcement

Less than a month to go until The Worm and His Kings releases on November 15, 2020! There’s still time to pre-order a paperback from the publisher and the ebook from Amazon.

Early reviews are already coming in from Goodreads and iHorror!

And then another announcement:

I’ve signed with Rooster Republic/Strangehouse Books to publish my body horror novel as part of their 2021 line-up! Check out the press release snippet from the publisher:

“Hailey Piper … has signed on to release a new horror novel through Strangehouse Books, and this is one hell of a manuscript. We are tempted to call the book “Cronenbergian” but we aren’t sure that really does the story justice. It’s more than that. This book will knock yer socks off. It’ll be getting the hardcover treatment, as well, and we’ll have further announcements over the next couple of months. But, go ahead and get excited.”

Title, cover art, and release date to be announced. Stay tuned! This one has teeth.
