Welcome horror fans! Feind is about to be published with Dark Chapter Press once again and we finally have the release date, cover and a pre-order link available for you! Read on for all the wonderful details…
Well folks it’s finally time, it’s… Shameless Self Promo Time! Also I get to promote the absolute best up and coming horror publisher in the business, Dark Chapter Press. Is that my biased opinion? Of course it is but in this case it also happens to be the truth. If you’re a writer trying to get your work out there you may have seen many small presses pop up and then after a very short time you don’t hear anything about them anymore or their websites disappear and so on. That’s because they got in over their heads, didn’t know what they were doing, sometimes weren’t clear about what they wanted and sometimes (fairly often) they were very poor judges of writing putting out the work of only themselves or friends losing any objectivity about quality. Dark Chapter Press has been making a name for themselves by putting out top quality writing highlighting new and fresh writing talent (somehow yours truly has managed to squeak in there!). Last year’s Kill For A Copy highlighted 17 different writers, most of us having our first work published, and this year they will be putting out a ton of work including what has become a two volume set called KIDS (Volume One to be released March 15th!). I’ve known my contribution, The Bones of Baby Dolls, was accepted for about a year but it takes time to do things right and that’s what DCP does. Originally planned as a single anthology about our dastardly little rugrats, there was such a deluge of deviance that one volume just couldn’t hold these pint sized miscreants back. So what is KIDS all about?
In short (pun definitely intended) Dark Chapter Press called for wicked stories of your not so sweet and innocent children. There were no real rules aside from the tales had to be about wicked wee ones, the tales could be set any where or at any time just so long as a kid or kids were involved in devious mischief. My contribution is about a little girl named Cassie who is probably a little too curious for her own good which turns into a night where she finally gets some “bloody” answers. I haven’t had a sneak peek at the other stories yet but I know a lot of the other contributing writers so I’m curious to see what evil they came up with and I sincerely hope you are as well. I have not seen the entire table of contents but that will be available very soon. I can tell you there will be 18 tales by 18 different authors some, like me, who are appearing again but also several newcomers you will want to get to know better. If you write horror and dark fiction there isn’t a better small press you can work with and I couldn’t recommend them any higher than I do. I guarantee I will have more releases coming through Dark Chapter Press in the near (and hopefully not so near future as well) so keep your eyes here and on DCP for more “Feind”-ishly great horror stories!
Pre-Orders Available Now, Book Launch is March 15th!
I plan to share a small excerpt of The Bones of Baby Dolls to coincide with the book launch so you can look forward to that whetting your appetite for this awesome anthology in only a couple short weeks. Also please keep your fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed for me as I (im)patiently wait to see if my novel wins the Dark Chapter Press Prize 2016 which should be announced in the next week or so. Feel free to cross your eyes as well, it’s a little freaky but I’ll take all the help I can get. The competition is stiff but we all know my novel is the best so, Jack, just announce it already! All kidding aside, whether I win or not doesn’t really matter to me. Okay, maybe a little. No, what really matters to me is that I’ve been able to meet and work with some talented people like editors Jack Rollins, Stuart Keane and David Basnett at DCP plus all the writers I’ve gotten to “meet” through DCP along with the pile of bloody “Grueheads” we met by starting this site. We love you guys! Some talk to me often, some only a little but they are all members of my extended horror family to which all are welcome. You just need a healthy love of the grotesque and disconcerting and/or heavy fucking metal! So pre-order KIDS if you’re a Kindle user (or other ebook reader) and hopefully I’ll have even more good news to share soon about other upcoming projects with DCP and maybe some other outlets as well! Stay tuned for all that! Speaking of upcoming projects I need to finish something terrible for another anthology Mr. Keane is putting together called Edge of Darkness! Stay tuned for details folks!
