Beetiful designed the book cover for the short story titled Crawlspace by horror story writer, Darcy Coates.
There’s something in the walls…
Erica’s parents were delighted at how cheap their new house was. It’s a large stone building in a nice part of town, but for some reason its occupants never seemed to stay for long.
When Erica discovers a door hidden behind the wallpaper in her room, she assumes it’s a small crawlspace. There’s nothing unusual about it… except for the quiet tapping noise she can hear late at night.
As she learns more about the house’s dark history, Erica realises her family might have bought much more than they’d bargained for…
Darcy Coates has had a long-standing love of horror, both reading and writing it. She is particularly fond of hauntings, monsters, and things without names.
She came first place in the Hpathy Short Story Competition (2013) for The Passing Hour, and first place in the Wyong Short Story Competition (2013, Adult Division), for The Mallory Haunting.
