Hi Folks!

Darkness WhispersWe’re thrilled to announce Darkness Whispers, the first-ever colloboration by Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman, which will also be the first signed Limited Edition hardcover from one of the hottest new collectible publishers around: Scarlet Galleon Publications.

We recommend you get in on the ground floor of this exciting new publisher while you can because we don’t expect copies to last long given the extremely low print run!

About the Book:
Darkness Whispers will introduce you to the town of Windbrook, a sleepy little community nestled deep in the secluded Skullkin Valley of western Pennsylvania.

All is well in Windbrook, just like usual, just like always. Nothing changes here, nothing is different.

Except… except today something is different.

An old man with piercing gray eyes will arrive in town this morning. This man isn’t human. Not even close. And he isn’t coming alone. Death travels with him.

Richard Chizmar, award-winning author of A Long December, and Brian James Freeman, acclaimed author of The Painted Darkness, have combined forces to create an old-fashioned tale of horror, full of good and evil, with a breathtaking ending that will leave you wondering when this peculiar old man might be coming for you…

Stephen King says: “I loved this book!” Dark Debts by Karen Hall!

Dark Debts by Karen Hall
Book #1 from the Cemetery Dance Gold Seal imprint, personally selected and introduced by Stephen King!
“I loved this book!” — Stephen King

Hi Folks!

We’re extremely excited to announce the Cemetery Dance Gold Seal imprint, an exciting new line of books personally selected and introduced by Stephen King!

Dark DebtsThe first title in this line will be the subversive classic Dark Debts by Karen Hall, and Stephen King has written a terrific original introduction about why he loves this book so much.

Cemetery Dance founder Richard Chizmar and Stephen King have discussed creating an imprint like this for years, but our new Six Scary Stories anthology (featuring stories selected and introduced by King) really pushed the idea into overdrive this summer.

Every book published under the Cemetery Dance Gold Seal imprint will be personally chosen and introduced by Stephen King, so be sure to look for more information at CemeteryDance.com and watch for future titles!

About the Book:
In Dark Debts, Karen Hall masterfully combines southern gothic, romantic comedy, and mystery in a wildly original theological thriller that has become a cult favorite since being published twenty years ago. In this new anniversary edition, the author has reimagined her work. The result is a suspenseful, irreverent, and deeply spiritual novel that captivates from the very beginning and doesn’t let go.

When Randa, a reporter for an alternative newspaper in Los Angeles, receives an urgent phone call from her estranged lover, Cam, she rushes to his apartment. She arrives to discover that he’s leapt from the building to his death. Police believe that before committing suicide, Cam also murdered someone in a convenience store, but Randa does not believe Cam is capable of such an act. She seeks out Cam’s brother, Jack, who is living off the grid, somewhere near Atlanta, in hope of figuring out what really happened.

Meanwhile, a Jesuit priest named Michael Kinney has been exiled from New York City to the boondocks of Georgia after making controversial public statements. He has said things that educated people of faith are not supposed to express. Even more problematically, he has fallen in love with a woman, and the last surviving member of his family has kept a shocking family secret from him.

How these characters converge is part of the thrilling mystery of Dark Debts, a cult favorite first published twenty years ago. In this new edition, author Karen Hall has re-imaged her southern gothic tale and the result is a work of even greater power—a brilliantly realized and suspenseful evocation of the conflict between good and evil.

• Limited to just 750 signed and numbered copies

Haven by Tom Deady: Brand New Signed Limited Edition Coming This Fall!

Haven is a big, generous, Stephen King-like small town boys vs. monster epic.”
— Stewart O’Nan, author of The Night Country and A Prayer for the Dying

Haven by Tom Deady
Brand New Signed Limited Edition Coming This Fall!

Hi Folks!

We’re pleased to report we’ll be publishing an epic-length first novel, Haven by Tom Deady, and early readers are already comparing this book to classics like It and Summer of Night!

About the Book:
HavenIn 1961, the small town of Haven thought they’d gotten rid of their monster.

After a series of child killings, Paul Greymore was caught carrying a wounded girl. His face, disfigured from a childhood accident, seemed to confirm he was the monster the community hoped to banish. With Paul in prison, the killings stopped.

For seventeen years, Haven was peaceful again. But Paul served his time and has now returned to Haven–the town where he grew up, and the scene of his alleged crimes. Paul insists he didn’t commit those crimes, and several townspeople believe him including the local priest, a young boy named Denny, and his best friend Billy.

Trouble is, now that Paul is back home, the bizarre killings have started again–and the patterns match the deaths from Haven’s past. If Paul isn’t the killer, who is?

Or WHAT is? An unlikely band of adventurers attempts to uncover the truth, delving into long-hidden tunnels that might actually be inhabited by a strange, predatory creature.

Haven is a compelling horror epic in the spirit of It or Summer of Night, and a stunning debut novel from a gifted author who knows that the darkest horrors lurk inside human beings, even when there is a monster on the loose.

Published as a Hardcover Limited Edition:
• Limited to just 750 signed and numbered copies
• Personally signed by the author on a unique signature page
Printed on 60# acid-free paper
• Bound in full-cloth with colored head and tail bands
• Featuring hot foil stamping on the front boards and spine
