About Nick Botic
Nick Botic is an author and publisher from Milwaukee, WI. Following a stay in a rehabilitation facility in order to rid himself of a years-long heroin addiction, Nick began writing after discovering the Reddit community r/NoSleep. His first series, an 8-part saga about a hotel worker, received rave reviews, and prompted him to continue writing.
Since then, he has written over 100 short stories and series, including the viral, award-winning hit “Daughter’s Drawings“. His stories consistently find their way to the top 5 spots on the 13 million-plus member Reddit community, often receiving awards. His work has been published in over 10 collections, including his own anthologies “The Things We Fear” and “An Ode To Terror” and his novella “A Halloween In Glarus“.
Towards the end of 2018, Nick ventured into the world of publishing. His first release, the erotic horror anthology “Goregasm“, reached the top 10 in the new releases category on Amazon, while David Feuling’s “The American Demon Waltz” has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews.
In 2019, Nick has secured adaptation deals, with several of his stories in various stages of production. His next release, the 25-author anthology “Sirens at Midnight” is due July 1st, and has already been met with positive reception.
Nick plans to continue balancing the responsibilities as publisher while also writing new material to keep his fans happy and horrified.

If someone screams in the forest and no one is around, will they regret ever making a sound?
Stepping into the forest, you're surrounded by the natural grandeur of a world which has no need of you. The silence is so heavy that you can hear your blood thundering through your veins. The stir of dry leaves in the darkness could be your friend finding his way back, but it sounds more like a primordial monster stalking its prey. And the lights between the trees? And the haunting songs which lure you ever deeper?
It's time to admit that you aren't afraid of being alone in the woods. You're afraid of not being alone.
Journey through the minds of 22 horror authors who have teamed up to reveal the most terrifying aspects of the forest. Over 400 pages of original supernatural and psychological horror stories include: ghosts, demons, serial-killers, true stories and unsolved mysteries, unique monsters, classic myths and legends, and above all else, a profound respect for the terror hidden within the mysterious trees.
“I think someone broke into your car.”
It was during a pit stop at a rural diner that we heard these words, and began the years-long terror that would change our lives forever. Someone had indeed broken into our car, but they had ignored the laptops and tablets and luggage.
All they took was our daughter’s most prized possession: a folder full of her artwork.
We didn’t know what to think when Katie’s works started coming back to us, one slightly-amended piece of art at a time. But when this connoisseur of our six-year-old daughter’s creations began bringing the subjects of our her drawings to life in twisted, disturbing ways, we knew that we were dealing with a danger worse than any of us could have ever imagined.Based on the viral short story of the same name, Daughter’s Drawings is the “surreal, methodical, and tormenting” (Felix Blackwell, Stolen Tongues) tale of a strange stalker’s obsession and the horror of stolen innocence, a relentless onslaught of anxiety that dissects every parent’s worst nightmare and confronts readers with the question, “How far would you go to protect the people you love?”
"Daughter's Drawings is an eight-cylinder, 450 hp, high-octane thriller whose engine is already rumbling on page 1. From there, it's full scream ahead, as Nick Botic lays on the gas and roars into a story of steadily escalating tension and terror. A strong debut, Daughter's Drawings is one lean, mean machine. Strap in."
--John Langan, author of Corpsemouth and Other Autobiographies
"Surreal, methodical, and tormenting, Daughter's Drawings is the worst nightmare of parents everywhere, and a relentless juggernaut of a thriller. Botic deftly weaves the horrors of stolen innocence and psychotic obsession across his debut novel, and the result is an onslaught of anxiety for all who have ever taught their children the phrase 'Stranger Danger.'"
--Felix Blackwell, author of Stolen Tongues
"A terrifying journey of paranoia. Nick Botic's Daughter's Drawings kept me up late into the night, dreading what I would find when I turned the page."
-- C.B. Jones, author of The Rules of the Road.
