Sources close to 'The Queen of Horror' Mylo Carbia have released the first draft cover and title of her upcoming book, "The Raping of Ava DeSantis." Although the storyline is still under wraps, sources close to us say that the book tackles the aftermath of a college-based gang rape, spinning a sophisticated psychological horror tale from the victim of that crime seeking justice.
Given the early controversy and buzz from horror fans across the globe (including Mylo's 65,000 Twitter followers) the book is rumored to have been picked up by a traditional publishing house and the release date may be moved up from early 2016 to right before Halloween.
Carbia ÔÇô the daughter of 'The Prince of Mambo' Eddie Carbia and niece of Puerto Rican Actress/Comedian Awilda Carbia - has penned several independent horror films under her own name, but is best known as Hollywood's number one horror film ghostwriter. Her work most likely influenced by the fact that she spent the first 13 years of her life living in a haunted house in the New York City suburb of Jackson, New Jersey.
Sources close to us also reveled that early reviewers of the manuscript called it "A breathtaking story, fast-paced, insanely vivid ÔÇô just brilliant!" and "A dazzling sophisticated horror tale that breaks the rules of every genre," so we're definitely looking forward to reading the first of a series of five horror novels all featuring strong female protagonists.
Sorry, Hollywood. Looks like 'The Queen of Horror' is blowing up the literary world and you won't be able to woo her back.
Stay tuned for more details coming out this summer. For now, you can follow Mylo on Twitter @MyloCarbia
