Matt Carter (mattcarterauthor) | 6 comments Hello! While I am quite new to this forum, I am loving my explorations into these conversations and some of the darker corners of the literary world to let me know I'm not entirely alone in my fascination in the odd and macabre. I have recently published my first horror novel, Bennytown, through Owl Hollow Press, and it is currently available in both paperback and ebook formats and, well, I thought I'd share some details here!


For nearly sixty years, Bennytown has been America’s most exciting family theme park destination. Under the watchful eye of cultural icon Benny the Bunny, the park has entertained generations of children with its friendly atmosphere and technologically innovative rides. Park founder Fletcher Dorian’s dream lives to this day, with Bennytown acting as a beacon of joy and wonder, where magic is real and dreams come true.

Bennytown once saved sixteen-year-old Noel Hallstrom’s life, and to repay it, Noel has applied for a summer job. Though the work is messy and the hours are bad, Noel is happy to be a part of the Bennytown family, until he sees the darkness beneath the surface.

Strange, mechanized mascots walk the park perimeter.

Elegantly dressed cultists in wooden Benny masks lurk in the darkness.

Spirits of the many who’ve died in the park roam freely, and every night the park transforms into a dark dimension where madness reigns and monsters prowl.

Noel is about to find out more about Bennytown than he ever wanted to know, and that its darkness might have designs on him…


Bennytown is available in both paperback and ebook formats now! And, for now at least, it's on sale for 99 cents on Kindle!

Matt Carter (mattcarterauthor) | 6 comments Wonderful, thank you, Luis! I hope you have as much fun getting spooked reading it as I had while writing it!

And if you did enjoy, I'd greatly appreciate reviews on Amazon and here on Goodreads, if you have the time of course.

Thanks again!
