Night Worms


Night Worms is a horror fiction subscription company founded by Sadie Hartmann (aka Mother Horror) and Ashley Saywers (aka Spookish Mommy). Learn more about us below. But first, about Night Worms:

The most important thing we want people to know is that we are not a subscription box in the same way people think about a subscription box. Typically, monthly book boxes contain one book and a lot of coordinated merchandise. We both have repped for Subscription Book Box companies before, and both of us experienced a “burn out” on the excess merch. Tees we won’t wear, hats or beanies we won’t wear, too many coffee mugs or pint glasses, bumper stickers we won’t use, or artwork that infringed on the author’s intellectual property. Here’s what you can expect from NIGHT WORMS:

  1. HORROR BOOKS – novels, novellas, author collections, short stories, chapbooks, anthologies, magazines and such. Quality horror. At least two physical books (often with signed bookplates) sometimes more or other readable material. The emphasis is on the books.
  2. THE “GOODIE BAG” – Our customers love their monthly Night Worms Goodie Bag. Inside will be a surprise selection of ‘goodies’ that we pick out for you to enhance your reading experience. Examples: Custom, collectible bookmarks, stickers, magnets, and usually something yummy to drink (coffee, tea, or cocoa)
  3. BUYING MORE BOOKS – The publishers and horror creatives we work closely with want to be a part of Night Worms by offering exclusive content, downloads, coupons and discounts to you!

Ashley Saywers (aka Spookish Mommy)

Ashley is a wife, mom, and lover of all things spooky. When she isn’t reading, you’ll probably find her listening to a true crime podcast, shopping for Halloween, or drinking a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yes, she really is that basic.
