PRLog - July 29, 2014 - VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of the supernatural thriller “Building a Better Monster: Legend of the Chupacabra” by Santa Rosa, California author Christopher Treagus. Mr. Treagus is the author of numerous horror and dark fantasy novels, including his Jack the Ripper thriller “In the Autumn of the Unfortunates,” and “The Blackthorne Chronicles,” a trilogy about the Salem witch trials.

If enough people believe in something, can that belief make it real? Explore the creation of mankind’s newest monster, the chupacabra, in this mesmerizing tale of the creature’s origins. Part vampire, part animal, part alien, the chupacabra is blamed for the slaughter of countless animals—and humans—throughout Mexico, Puerto Rico and the American Southwest. While the Chupacabra seemed to come suddenly on the scene from out of nowhere, it would not be the first time that the collective consciousness of humanity’s wildest imaginings breathed life into a myth, giving it flesh and blood and deadly purpose. And now that we’ve created it, can anything stop its modern day reign of terror?

Ask for “Building a Better Monster: Legend of the Chupacabra” at your favorite bookstore, or buy it online at the Barking Rain Press website, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Powells, Waterstones, and many other Internet bookstores.
