Boothworld Industries Initiation Kit

This is not a book. This is an interactive experience.

There are 10 horror short stories inside, sure, but that’s not the only thing lurking within these pages. Check out what this beta reader had to say:

“I thought I was buying a book of short stories. I didn’t realize that what I would read would have such depth of experience. Most of the stories were amazing, but I have to be honest. When dealing with anthologies that contain multiple authors, there are always a few clunkers and this book is no different. The puzzles, the death override (Do the confirmation. It’s pretty cool), the coupon (It works! And you get a surprise back too!) and the amount of thought put into this more than made up for any shortcomings one or two of the stories might have had. I feel as though the Bloodworth sat down and really thought about the type of experience he thought the reader would like to have while going through the book. Amazing.”
Ann P. Beta reader

Ann is correct about the focus on reader experience. I wanted the reader to have something that they weren’t quite sure about. I wanted to hide things inside the pages. I wanted people to think of the Boothworld Industries Initiation Kit as less of a book and more of an interactive experience with a paranormal corporation called Boothworld Industries.

“Okay. First, I want to say that I’m a huge Bloodworth fan. I’ve followed him since he started writing creepypastas for reddit’s nosleep subreddit, back before it was filled with the stuff that’s in there now. His stories were among the few that focused more on characters and plot than just gore and scares. I don’t even like scary stories, but his writing pulled me in and kept me hooked. His stories made you fall in love with the characters he wrote. That sucked because you didn’t want anything bad to happen to them, which usually did. His stories also had an air of reality to them. Even though you knew what you were reading couldn’t be true, his words would make you question that very notion. Like I said, I’m a superfan.

“I loved all of Bloodworth’s stories in this book. How could anyone not? He created Boothworld Industries and it shows. There were a few authors that gave him a run for his money though. Namely Ross Baxter and Stacie Savage. Now I don’t want to be mean, but there was also one story I just didn’t like at all. It seemed like very little thought had been put into it.

“Oh well. I’ve yet to read a book that was 100% perfect, but this book, with all the extra goodies you find, comes closer than most.”
Bri K. Beta reader

I really wanted the reader to walk away from this experience feeling as if they’d received something more than a book. I wanted to create lasting memories. That’s why so much time and effort was put into it. Sure, I could’ve just thrown the stories together, but it wouldn’t have been as powerful as I wanted it to be.

“Jesus, dude. I’ve never been more paranoid in my life. Every time my phone rings I say a little prayer that the number that appears won’t be Boothworlds. Boothworld Industries is something else…”
Jon S. Beta reader

I could tell you more, but now it’s time for you to discover Boothworld Industries for yourself.

Welcome to the Family

Who’s behind the mask?

Something strange woke 7 year old Jesse Sullivan up this morning: his mother dressed as a scarecrow.

It’s August.

She’s standing at the foot of his bed, staring at him, arms out, head cocked, silent.

“Stop it, mom,” Jesse says, standing up on the mattress and walking to where she stands. “You’re scaring me.”

Jesse’s mom doesn’t answer.

“Mommy, why are you doing this?” Jesse asks, feeling tears well up in his eyes.

“Because,” a deep, male voice whispers from behind the burlap mask.
