Final Cover due end of July

We’re pleased to announce, in the wake of Brian Keene’s Scares That Care telethon announcement, that on October 3rd, Serial Box will release Silverwood: The Door, a horror series set in the remote, mountain town of Silverwood, California.

Twin Peaks meets the X-files in this horror series full of homicidal boy scouts, ravenous black goo, mysterious doppelgangers, and a Stranger Things style corporate conspiracy. Deep within the forest of Silverwood, California, a crack between dimensions has appeared. A dark force that lurks among the trees is growing stronger, determined to return home if it can only gather the strength to open the door—bad news for a Boy Scout troop and the employees of Hirsch Capital on a company retreat nearby.

As their darkest fears and impulses power the mysterious force, their bonding exercises take a deadly turn. Will anyone be able to keep their minds long enough to close the door before our world is torn apart?

Silverwood is an original video production from Tony Valenzuela’s Black Box TV on YouTube, which has nearly 900,000 subscribers.

 

 

Serial Box has collected an award-winning and critically-acclaimed group of
horror and thriller authors to continue the story of Silverwood with the new series, SILVERWOOD: THE DOOR, in both text and audio. The talented team, who wrote the series in a TV style writers room, includes Brian Keene (The Horror Show with Brian Keene), Richard Chizmar (founder of Cemetery Dance Magazine), Stephen Kozeniewski (Whispers of the APOC), and the Sisters of Slaughter Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason (Mayan Blue).

What a lineup! I’m so very ready for this series based on these authors alone…. check out their bios HERE
Serial Box, which NPR recently called “the HBO of reading,” produces original series that are released in ebook and audio episodes through their app(s), website, and third party retailers (iTunes, Amazon, etc).

Readers/listeners pay $1.59 for individual episodes or a season pass or subscription for approximately 20% off the whole season (10-13 episodes). Serial Box brings the power of appointment-based consumption to reading for the first time since Charles Dickens & Little Nell.

Visit serialbox.com for more information.

Since launch, Serial Box has been called “The HBO for reading” by NPR, “a must have app for 2018” by Buzzfeed, “a best app of 2017” by Apple, and Den of Geek says that “Serial Box brings HBO style storytelling to prose.”


So if you’re like me and have never encountered this format before (have I been living under a rock or is this a new thing? Both options seem equally likely), this is how it works: 

 

You heard that right – your subscribed episodes are available in both text AND audio format so you can flip back and forth.

For this series to come about, authors were selected and herded to spend a weekend together to outline the series and then get to work. Each ‘episode’ is designed to be read in 40-45 minutes at a standard reading pace, like your average TV series, which I love the idea of as the entire series should add up to a collection of novellas. 

The authors wrote 2-4 episodes each and kept in touch to make sure everything fit (continuity errors – I’m gonna be keeping an eye out for ya!) to bring together an entire series which you’ll now be able to subscribe to via the Serial Box Publishing app  (also available for android) and read/listen to at your leisure.

For UK customers, you can create your account on your phone via the app and it will automatically convert the costs to GBP – in this case £13.99 for the whole series.

Now please excuse me while I go to watch the entire first series on YouTube…
