For Immediate Release – Author Ruschelle Dillon grew up in Johnstown Pennsylvania with two great loves; humor and horror. To most people, these two interests are on opposite ends of the entertainment spectrum. But Dillon has always enjoyed bringing both together, like a modern day “Odd Couple” living in her mind – and her work. Her latest effort to do so has produced “Bone Sai”, a novelette published by Black Bed Sheet Books about a visitor to Japan whose “worst trip ever” includes an earthquake, a nuclear disaster, and a bug bite with a wicked side-effect.
Dillon taps into her unique ability to laugh at things that go bump in the night with Bone Sai. The story is set in Japan, during the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami. A visitor encounters a perfect storm of events that results in a mutated bug bite – on quite possibly the worst possible body part for a man to have a big bite. The result is a monstrous zombie part with a will of its own.
Dillon believes it is important to laugh in the face of adversity. “I mean no disrespect to the victims of the very tragic Japanese disaster” Dillon explains. “I have always believed that humor is good medicine. As a child, I learned that humor could prevent me from being afraid whenever I watched or read horror. If I wasn’t laughing, I’d be crying. I think the same often holds true in reality”.
Bone Sai is available in various electronic (eBook) formats, including those for Kindle and other devices. It can be purchased for immediate download on Amazon (www.amazon.com) or via the Black Bed Sheet web site (www.downwarden.com/blackbedsheetstore).
