Cover Jacket Reveal for SAINT GRIT, Which We Can’t Post on Social Media Without Getting Our Accounts Banned

What’s up, my ghouls!!! It’s Friday night, and I feel like sharing some world-class illustrated smut. That’s right: we’re revealing the full jacket art for Kayli Scholz’s Saint Grit, a novella about a woman who conjures a witch upon self-orgasm, coming November 14th from Ghoulish Books. We like to describe this book to people as Gummo meets The Craft. Either those two comps get you completely on board, or you have no idea what we’re talking about.

Anyway, not only are we revealing the full artwork here, but we’re also—for the first time—showing off a fantastic blurb Daniel Kraus (Whalefall) gave us after reading an early copy of the novella.

This is what he had to say:

“This is the real stuff I’m always chasing—every chapter a warning, every page a curse, entirely irresistible to read even as you know reading it will damn you forever.” —Daniel Kraus, author of Whalefall

One more exciting bits of Saint Grit news before we show you the cover. Our very own art ghoul, Betty Rocksteady, has created 6 wonderfully demented interior illustrations for the book. We can’t wait for you to eventually see them!

But first, let’s take a look at this jacket. The back cover actually features a small sample from one of Betty’s interior illustrations. The front cover, however, was illustrated by Alejandra Oviedo (aka Ruttu).

Also, as a reminder, with this particular book, we had to commission both a CENSORED version and an UNCENSORED version. The original uncensored version is simply too gnarly for online retailers to handle, so we’ll be selling it exclusively through the GHOULISH.RIP webstore as well as our physical store in San Antonio.

I believe that should be plenty of a warning for you. The following images are very much NSFW.



and now, the version we can’t post on social media without risking account deletion…


Order either version of Saint Grit right here on GHOULISH.RIP!
