It's a mystery- Something is wrong. As Lance Underphal pads softly across the cold flagstone, he hears her weeping. She is on her knees, hunched over in the middle of the room, her back to him, facing the dark fireplace. Something is very wrong. Lance wants to rush to her, but can't. In a hoarse whisper, he says, "Callie?" She lets out a mournful wail from deep within as she turns, their infant son in her arms, blue and still. He reels from the blow. How can this be? They don't have a son.

Out tomorrow from Crystal Lake Publishing:


THIS IS GOING TO HURT.

"Todd Keisling is a born storyteller, drawing the reader into artfully constructed narratives that scout the darker end of the literary spectrum with skill and bravado.  A pleasure to read, his stories linger well after the last page has been turned. Excellent stuff." - John Langan, author of The Fisherman

The eleven stories in Ugly Little Things explore the depths of human suffering and ugliness, charting a course to the dark, horrific heart of the human condition. The terrors of everyday existence are laid bare in this eerie collection of short fiction from the twisted mind of Todd Keisling, author of the critically-acclaimed novels A Life Transparent and The Liminal Man.

"In Ugly Little Things, Todd Keisling ventures deep into the dark abyss of cosmic horror. What he finds there--or what's found him--will terrify you. This varied collection is tailor-made for fans of existential dread. Prepare to face the void. Try not to scream." - Brian Kirk, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of We Are Monsters.

Travel between the highways of America in "The Otherland Express," where a tribe of the forsaken and forlorn meet to exchange identities. Witness the cold vacuum of space manifest in the flesh in "The Darkness Between Dead Stars." Step into the scrub of rural Arizona and join Karen Singleton's struggle to save her husband from a cult of religious fanatics in "When Karen Met Her Mountain." Visit the small town of Dalton in "The Harbinger" and join Felix Proust as he uncovers the vile secrets rooted at the heart of Dalton Dollworks. And in the critically-acclaimed novella "The Final Reconciliation," learn the horrifying truth behind the demise of the rock band The Yellow Kings.

"Keisling writes in the shadows, his words like that first long drag on a cigarette after work. I couldn't help coming back for more, and before I knew it, that one story, that one cigarette, turned into the whole pack." - Stephanie M. Wytovich, Bram Stoker award-nominated author of The Eighth.

With an introduction by Bram Stoker Award-winner Mercedes M. Yardley and illustrations by Luke Spooner, Ugly Little Things will be your atlas, guiding you along a lonely road of sorrow, loss, and regret. This is going to hurt-and you're going to like it.

Brand new Jasper Bark novella from Crystal Lake Publishing out this Friday - http://getbook.at/QuietAmazon (pre-order now at the special $2.99 launch price)

In the quiet of the forest, the darkest fears are born.



The people of Dunballan, harbour a dark secret. A secret more terrible than the Beast that stalks the dense forests of Dunballan. A secret that holds David McCavendish, last in a long line of Lairds, in its unbreakable grip.

It's down to Sally, David's lover, to free David from the sinister clutches of the Beast. But, with the whole town against her, she must ally herself with an ancient woodland force and trace Dunballan's secret back to its bitter origins. Those origins lie within the McCavendish family history, and a blasphemous heresy that stretches back to the beginning of time. Some truths are too terrible to face, and the darkest of these lie waiting for Sally, in the Quiet Places.

Quiet Places is folk horror at its most cosmic and terrifying. Blending folklore with psychological terror, it contains stories within stories, each one leading to revelations more unsettling than the last. Revelations that will change the way you view your place in the cosmos, and haunt you, relentlessly, long after you have put down this book.

Quiet Places is a novella in the Heresy Series story cycle and has been substantially rewritten and revised for this edition.

Writers never really die; their stories live on, to be found again, to be told again, to scare again.
In Victorian London, a select group of writers, led by Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker and Henry James held an informal dining club, the price of entry to which was the telling of a story by each invited guest.

These are their stories, containing tales of revenant loved ones, lost cities, weird science, spectral appearances and mysteries in the fog of the old city, all told by some of the foremost writers of the day. In here you'll find Verne and Wells, Tolstoy and Checkov, Stevenson and Oliphant, Kipling, Twain, Haggard and Blavatsky alongside their hosts.

Come, join us for dinner and a story:
   Robert Louis Stevenson - Wee Davie Makes a Friend
   Rudyard Kipling - The High Bungalow
   Leo Tolstoy - The Immortal Memory
   Bram Stoker - The House of the Dead

When I was younger, I had New Year's Resolutions. Now I have clear and achievable goals to work toward. My main goals for 2017 were to lose weight (roughly 12kg) and successfully run Crystal Lake Publishing on a full time basis (huge success thanks to our amazing fans, authors, and staff). I lost the weight, which definitely helps, but my health still isn't where it needs to be. I keep telling authors to see their careers in the big 'long-run' picture, but I also need to spend more time taking care of myself. Any business or career will be negatively affected if your health continues to deteriorate. Plus, the longer you live, the more goals you'll be able to achieve. :-)

So, for 2018, health will be my number one personal focus. Regarding Crystal Lake, I want to ensure the longevity of the company by building up a nice reserve/emergency fund. Too many small presses closed down this year, and I don't want authors and readers worrying about Crystal Lake. ;-) Your continued support will be greatly appreciated. Oh, and I really need to figure out a way to get more done without taking up more time. I've always been good at time management, but I'll really have to push the limits in 2018.

Please feel free to share your goals for 2018? Personal and professional. I'd love to hear more about everyone here.

Achievement unlocked! ;-)

Immediately after becoming a full time publisher last December, I was hit pretty hard with two massive bookstore returns, resulting with me starting the year a little in the red, instead of with a decent reserve. That was followed by the slowest 6 months of sales I've seen in a long time (something a lot of small presses experienced), but everything turned around in July, and as of yesterday, I'm happy to report that financially, Crystal Lake has surpassed all 2016 sales (with minimal returns), with each month improving on the last. A few months ago this seemed to be an impossible task.

So here's to entering 2018 with a much stronger foundation (and after a decent holiday that ends on the 8th - really needed it). Thanks to everyone for your support. Can't wait to share 2018's lineup with you.
