    Out now from Mark Sheldon and Crystal Lake Publishing (on paperback and Kindle: http://getbook.at/SarahK2



    Have you ever woken one morning with a burning, insatiable desire to go out and kill someone?

    Sarah Killian, a notoriously foul-mouthed and mean-spirited serial killer for hire, along with her cohort assassin Mary Sue Keller, are back on assignment for the Trusted Hierarchy of Everyday Murderers (T.H.E.M.).

    After receiving an ominous warning from a mark-gone-wrong, it becomes clear that Nick Jin - Sarah's former nemesis - is still at large and singling her out.

    Sarah and Mary Sue are dispatched to Tennessee to discreetly kill off an accused family of KKK organizers, but their true mission is to lure Nick Jin into a trap. But will Nick - always several steps ahead of T.H.E.M. - see their bait for what it is? One thing is guaranteed: blood will be shed.

    In the spirit of Sidney Sheldon, Dean Koontz, and Joss Whedon, The Mullets of Madness is a truly unique blend of horror, suspense and espionage.

    If you missed the first Sarah Killian book, you can still enjoy this new stand-alone sequel, or pick up volume 1: http://getbook.at/SarahK

    There's even a free Sarah Killian short story eBook for you to enjoy:

    Out today from Crystal Lake Publishing (on paperback and various eBook formats):



    Bram Stoker Award winners Linda D. Addison and Alessandro Manzetti use their unique voices to create a dark, surrealistic poetry collection exploring the many ways shattered bodies, minds, and souls endure.

    "Addison and Manzetti appear, here, as a songwriting team, certain tunes attributed to one, then the other, but regularly meeting, so that not only do we get to know where each great poet is coming from, but their electric union to boot. At turns gritty and aqueous, this book is totally alive. Addison and Manzetti have written a volume in which literally every line is worthy of being that book's title." - Josh Malerman, author of BIRD BOX

    "There is no book of poetry quite like THE PLACE OF BROKEN THINGS! Linda Addison and Alessandro Manzetti spin dark magic! Highly recommended!" - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-WARS and GLIMPSE

    "Addison and Manzetti have teamed up to create a dazzling array of images, ideas, and emotions. When flying solo through the pages, their voices are distinct, knee deep in bravura and style. And yet, their collaborations are seamless. Powerful stuff, indeed. You will find yourself re-visiting the pieces in this book, each time discovering something new." - Thomas Monteleone

    Out tomorrow!



    After being held against their will in a house used for trafficking, three girls plan their escape.

    Alex: A hardened goth-punk who's convinced she's a vampire with a penchant for blood.
    Stacia: A seventeen-year-old raised by an alcoholic mother, her fellow captives the only family she's ever truly had.
    Kammie: The youngest of the three - a mute who finds solace in a houseplant.

    But does life outside the house offer the freedom they'd envisioned? Or is it too late, the scars too deep?

    A coming-of-age tale of revenge and survival that explores a friendship and the desperate measures taken to ensure they stay united, held together by the scars that bind them.

    "Chad Lutzke's The Pale White knocked the air out of me in the first paragraph. Lutzke courageously tackled an aspect of true horror with determination and astonishing sensitivity. This book not only demands to be read, but it demands to be discussed." - Mercedes M. Yardley, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Little Dead Red.

    Out tomorrow from Karen Runge and Crystal Lake Publishing:

    'It's not that there aren't good people in the world. It's that the bad ones are so much easier to find.'
     


    A teen mother raises her daughter on a looping road trip, living hand-to-mouth in motel rest stops and backwater towns, stepping occasionally into the heat and chaos of the surrounding cities. A life without permanence, filled with terrors and joys, their stability is dependent on the strangers--and strange men--they meet along the way. But what is the difference between the love of a mother, and the love of a friend? And in a world with such blurred lines, where money is tight and there's little outside influence, when does the need to survive slide into something more sinister?

    "Doll Crimes is gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, and so smooth it reads like reality." - Kaaron Warren, award-winning author of The Grief Hole and Tide of Stone

    "A mix of The Girl Next Door, Requiem for a Dream, Hard Candy, and The Last Exit to Brooklyn there is no looking away from the tragedy on these gripping pages." - Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration, and the Thriller-nominated Breaker

    Out November 29th from Crystal Lake Publishing: HOLLOW HEART: A HORROR NOVELLA by Ben Eads



    Welcome to Shady Hills, Florida, where death is the beginning and pain is the only true Art

    An aberration known as The Architect has finished his masterpiece: A god which slumbers beneath the hollow, determined to change the world into its own image. With the neighborhood on lockdown, and the residents turned into shambling horrors, Harold and his former lover, Mary, begin their harrowing journey into the world within the hollow.

    Like the warped demonic lovechild of Clive Barker and Chuck Palahniuk, Ben Eads' work is not for the faint of heart...or stomach.Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Kin and Sour Candy

    Ben Eads is a fearless writer, so be prepared. His horror is not for the faint of heart, rather his readers must be equally fearless to face the truth that hides in the dark heart of his work.Fran Friel, Two-Time Bram Stoker Award Finalist

    "The Wilkie Collins of our age, Fortin weaves a beautifully terrifying tale of an innocent woman caught in alternate-history Victorian London where demons have taken control of the city." - Emerian Rich, author of Night's Knights Vampire Series



    England, 1876. Twenty-year-old Maraina Blackwood has always struggled to adhere to the restrictive standards of Victorian society, denying the courage and desire that burn within her soul. But after a terrifying supernatural encounter, Maraina's instincts compel her to action.

    Maraina soon discovers a plot to unleash a new world--one of demonic aristocrats, bloody rituals, and nightmarish monsters. Putting her upbringing aside, Maraina vows to fight the dark forces assuming control of England. But as her world transforms, Maraina finds that she too must transform...and what she becomes will bring out all that she once buried.

    Lilitu: The Memoirs of a Succubus is the first chapter in an epic dark fantasy saga, proudly represented by Crystal Lake Publishing--Tales from the Darkest Depths.

    It's book launch day at Crystal Lake Publishing: http://getbook.at/Arterial

    "Yardley's debut anthology floored me. An incredible cocktail of poetic darkness, fueled by some of the best names working today. A must-have for any horror fan." - Matt Hayward, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of What Do Monsters Fear? and A Penny For Your Thoughts

    Lush. Brutal.
    Beautiful. Visceral.



    Crystal Lake Publishing proudly presents Arterial Bloom, an artful juxtaposition of the magnificence and macabre that exist within mankind. Each tale in this collection is resplendent with beauty, teeth, and heart.

    Edited by the Bram Stoker Award-winning writer Mercedes M. Yardley, Arterial Bloom is a literary experience featuring 16 stories from some of the most compelling dark authors writing today.

    Out today, our 100th publication:

    Brad Storm doesnt believe in ghosts, but moving into the house at 324 Abercorn just may change his mind.

    Best-selling author Bradley Storm finally has enough money to buy and restore his dream home. Despite 324 Abercorn's reputation as one of the most haunted houses in America, Bradley isn't worried. He doesn't believe in the supernatural. Then strange things begin to happen. Objects no longer where he left them. Phantom noises heard from empty rooms. Shadows glimpsed from the corner of his eye.

    Is his house truly haunted, or is there something more sinister happening on the property?

    With the help of Bradleys new boyfriend and a few friends who are just as intrigued with the seemingly inexplicable occurrences surrounding the infamous house, they set out to find the truth of what stalks

    Mark Allan Gunnells has created a downright chilling story centered around what many believe to be Savannahs Amityville house. This book had me sleeping with the lights on, and I study this for a living.Ryan Dunn Lead Investigator/ Founder The Savannah Ghost Research Society.

    Brand new Paranormal Horror novel, out today from C.S. Alleyne and Crystal Lake Publishing: http://getbook.at/BelleVue

    Jealousy. Betrayal. Murder. And a hunger for vengeance that spans the centuries...

    History student Alex Palmer is thrilled when his girlfriend, Claire Ryan, buys an apartment in Belle Vue Manor, formerly a Victorian lunatic asylum.
     
    But as Alex begins to discover the dark truth about the asylum's past, he, Claire, and their friend Marianne find themselves on a nightmarish journey. Each will face the deadly consequences of the evil that began with the construction of the first Belle Vue Manor by an aristocratic French migr in 1789, as well as the cruelty and satanic practices that continued when it became an asylum for the insane.
     
    As the two strands--past and present--unfold, Alex uncovers a supernatural mystery where revenge is paramount and innocence irrelevant--without being aware of the price he, and those around him, will pay.

    "An epic horror thriller" that is "filled with surprising, satisfyingly creepy twists" and is "highly recommended for audiences who eschew the usual formula production in favor of a work that is more multifaceted and satisfying on emotional, historical, and philosophical levels alike."Midwest Book Review

    "From first page to end a resounding chorus of 'wows'! 100% riveting", "Excellent character delineations, exciting plotting and I want to read it all over again!"Mallorys Mystery Clearing House

    "C.S Alleyne is incredible at setting the scene and inciting the emotion."Dan Thomas

    "Unexpected twists that Ive never encountered before in the genre and I absolutely adore the fresh approach. These twists are used throughout the book, taking it in unexpected directions."Whispering Stories

    Coming this Friday: http://getbook.at/HorrorShow

    It's end of October 1985 and the crumbling river town of Dubois, Iowa is shocked by the gruesome murder of one of the pillars of the community. Detective David Carlson has no motive, no evidence, and only one lead: the macabre local legend of "Boris Orlof," a late night horror movie host who burned to death during a stage performance at the drive-in on Halloween night twenty years ago and the teenage loner obsessed with keeping his memory alive.

    The body count is rising and the darkness that hangs over the town grows by the hour. Time is running out as Carlson desperately chases shadows into a nightmare world of living horrors.

    On Halloween the drive-in re-opens at midnight for a show no one will ever forget.



    "Midnight Horror Show takes you through the darkest recesses of horror nostalgia and video store lore into a fog-drenched gothic landscape of occult murders, mysterious creatures, and so much blood. Evokes Poe, Lovecraft, and Clive Barker in a compelling mystery that's familiar while feeling thoroughly fresh. I couldn't put the book down." - Ben Rock, Video Palace, The Blair Witch Project

    Since its founding in 2012, Crystal Lake's authors, books, artists, and editors (and even the company itself) have received 50 prestigious awards and nominations. That's quality guaranteed. Welcome to Crystal Lake Publishing - Tales from The Darkest Depths
