Treats from our homies over at Mocha Memoirs Press

Mocha Memoirs Press Presents Dark Mocha Bites Series by Nicole Givens Kurtz

Halloween, specifically, and October—in general are my favorite time of year. Fall is my favorite season, so yes, this month holds a particular place in my heart. As a publisher, I enjoy speculative fiction, and October always moved my hand from science fiction texts to horror.

While Mocha Memoirs Press publishes a lot of romance titles, we are a speculative fiction house. We love a good story, and a good, scary story is even better. Heart pounding, hair raising, I-didn’t-see-that-coming, horror is not only entertaining but thrilling.

Enter Dark Mocha Bites, our series of stories devoted to horror and horror romance. This month we’re spotlighting our new Dark Mocha Bites titles in conjunction with our already delicious horror titles.

There are several reasons Dark Mocha Bites are special.
They can be mash-ups of other genres. We are not afraid of genre mash-up, such as the case with Tom Olbert’s HELLSHIFT.
• They’re fresh takes on what is truly scary.
These stories are usually under 30,000 words. 
    • So you’re looking at short fiction to novella length stories. That is a true challenge in and of itself. To pack a solid, scary, character driven horror story into a story that’s less than 30,000 words takes skill and talent.

For authors, we’re open to new submissions of Dark Mocha Bites throughout the year. October is just the month we move the spotlight to our horror fiction.

So, if you’re ready to try a new flavor of horror, we invite you to try Dark Mocha Bites from Mocha Memoirs Press. Visit us here at
