Dark Author Updates

Four DARK authors have projects coming up so here is the low down.

J.P. Moore is happy to announce that his novel TOOTHLESS will be hitting print this Halloween. The novel description is:

France, 1180AD: An ancient evil is on the march. An army of demons and undead rampages across the countryside, spreading death and destruction. Judgment has come. The world of the living teeters on the edge of ruin.

One knight, a failed Templar, returns to the battlefield to avenge his wife and daughter. The dice are cast against him, and he is slain only to rise in service to the very evil that he hoped to destroy. He is a gifted minion. But life is not done with him yet.


To learn more head over to J.P. Moore's offcial site.

Fellow DARK author Matt R. Jones has opened a blog for his new novel Mary Jane - A Tale Of Horror, Adventure, and Love. He describes it as:

a small-town horror/coming-of-age/romance piece loaded with humor and minimal melodrama.


He's already got some parts posted so head on over to the Mary Jane official blog.

And Blake M. Petit is releasing his novel Other People's Heroes as a serial podnovel. He previously published the book and now decided to bring it alive in the weekly podcast. The novel description is:

Imagine that you’ve lived your entire life in a world full of superheroes. Imagine that you’ve spent years worshipping the caped champions that protect your city, reviling the villains out to rule the world, and wishing that you could take your place among the guardians of justice. That’s what’s about to happen to reporter Josh Corwood. But when Josh’s dream comes true, he learns that these heroes he loves so much may be more “man” than “super,” and they may need a kid from the outside to remind them what being a hero is really about.

If you want to check this out then head on over to Evertime Realms. And while there you may also notice that Blake has also just published a short story Inciting Incident is available in the first issue of Flying Island Press. This story is actually a prequel to Other People's Heroes. So head on over to Flying Island Press to check that out.

And lastly Bryan Wolford has been writing a serialized horror/crime novel called 48 PIECES over at his blog Life Of Bryan. It's supposed to be an off the cuff novel so go experience it as it unfolds.

Get to reading and ENJOY!

DARK Is Coming!



This Monday April 26th the new Horror Anthology DARK will be hitting for purchase. Fourteen authors come together to bring you their vision of horror in Dark: A Horror Anthology. Many of the iconic creatures of horror's history resurface in fresh and innovative ways-zombies, werewolves, and chupacabras abound. There are plenty of new things to fear as well, a broken world, a myth of the murky depths, and a knife that cuts twice. Whatever your favorite flavor may be there is an author in these pages that serves it up. Authors include: Matt R. Jones, Bryan Wolford, Casey Criswell, J.P. Moore, Keith Latch, Sal Cipriano, Desmond Reddick, Sean Keller, Dezi Sienty, Cassandra Thomas, Blake M. Petit, Corey Graham, Derek M. Koch, and Steve Wands.

Prepare for DARK!

Bigfoot Anthology Open To Submissions

DARK contributor Casey Criswell is going to be co-editing an anthology built around everyone's favorite hairy woodsman. Can't wait to see this in print. Press release below:

NEW BIGFOOT PRINT ANTHOLOGY CALLS FOR SUBMISSIONS!

Bigfoot. Sasquatch. Skunkape. Whatever you call him, this cryptozoological American legend has entertained and befuddled us for generations. From grainy Zapruder-like film to family fare such as “Harry and the Hendersons”, the Bigfoot is an ingrained part of our culture. And, now, we’re gonna tell the other side of his story…the further adventures of Bigfoot!
Conceived in a fever pitch this past Horrorhound Weekend, Louis Fowler, editor of DAMAGED 2.0 and Casey Criswell, editor of “Cinema Fromage”, are teaming up with Rod Lott at BOOKGASM for an as-yet-to-be-titled Bigfoot Anthology, to be published under the new “BOOKGASM PRESENTS” banner. And, as with any anthology worth it’s salt, we need quality writers wanting to tell their own version of the Sasquatch myth!

Think that you’ve got an unique story to tell? We want it! Anyone can do a typical Bigfoot-scares-teen-campers tale…we want something different. Stories can put the creature in anytime or anyplace or any situation, as long as it is entertaining! Think your story is too “B-movie”? Chances are we’ll like it even better. Think your “take” is too insane? We want to read it!
Short story submissions need to be at least 1500 words, but feel free to go longer to tell the story that you need to. Additionally, flash fiction of at least 250 words will also be considered, but, please tell a story.
NO POETRY.
All submissions should be sent as a .doc file, in 12 point Times New Roman font. No crazy fonts, please. Number all pages and please include name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address in the top left corner of the first page.
For work accepted, authors will receive a complimentary copy of the anthology in which their work appears.

We will be accepting submissions from now until June 15th. Authors will be notified of acceptance shortly thereafter by email.

Send all submissions to damagedhearing@gmail.com with the subject “BIGFOOT SUBMISSION”.
Thanks, and we look forward to seeing your stuff!
