Congratulations Are In Order
Updated: Sep 28, 2022
We at Manta Press want to congratulate Toronto-based author, Liz Worth, on the release of her new vampire novel, The Mouth Is a Coven. Described as a "Haunting, creepy, beautifully crafted entry into modern gothic literature” by Sèphera Girón, author of the Witch Upon a Star series, and “an extraordinarily visual book that’s practically begging to be made into a film” by Pleasant Gehman, author of Rock’n’Roll Witch; A Memoir Of Sex Magick, Drugs, And Rock’n’Roll.
The premise goes a little something like…
“In Starling City, there are spirits on every street corner. Everyone in town has at least one ghastly tale to tell.It’s no wonder a place like this breeds people like Blue and Julie. Summoning demons for fun and obsessing over a local legend of a vampire named Matter, they hang out in dark clubs on a desolate downtown street, hoping that Matter will one day find them.
Because if they can become vampires, all their problems will disappear. Just like the movies, they’ll never get old, and they’ll never die. They won’t have to worry about things like work or making rent, because the mundane world will no longer apply to them.
One night, their wish comes true: It turns out Matter is real. Except Blue and Julie soon learn that being a vampire is nothing like you see in the movies. Abandoned by the one who turned them, they are left on their own to figure out how to live as the undead – and what to do with all those dead bodies piling up.”
The Mouth Is a Coven is now available in paperback and ebook wherever books are sold online, including mantapress.com.
Congratulations, Liz, on the release of this remarkable book!
