Books & Boos Press is proud to announce we will be publishing award-winning author Kristi Petersen Schoonover’s short story collection, The Shadows Behind.
Schoonover is the author of Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole: Tales from Haunted Disney World (Admit One Literary Theme Park Press, 2010), a collection of ghost stories set in Disney Parks; the novel Bad Apple (Vagabondage Press Books, 2012); and the Poe-esque novelette This Poisoned Ground. Her novella “Splendid Chyna” appears in Three on a Match; most recently, she curated the Ink Stains anthology Volume 7, published in January of 2018, focusing on the nature of decay. Schoonover is a prolific short story writer, a four-time winner of the Toasted Cheese Literary Journal’s Dead of Winter short story contest, and has been the recipient of Norman Mailer Writers Colony residencies three times, among other accolades.
“We’re excited to have signed Kristi Petersen Schoonover,” said managing editor Stacey Harris. “She’s a professional talent of the highest caliber, and the stories in this collection blew me away.”
The Shadows Behind is slated for release in April 2019.

The release party was put on by Schoonover, who did an awesome job from the food to the decorations. She even got a cake showcasing the book cover.
Crandall and Munson joined Schoonover for over four hours to celebrate the release of Three on a Match, the newest book from Books & Boos Press.

Three on a Match will be released on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017.
Books & Boos Press is thrilled to announce Jeff Strand will have an original short story in our upcoming darkly funny anthology, tentatively titled A Sharp Stick in the Eye (and Other Funny Stories), edited by Rob Smales (you can find our submission guidelines here). Strand is the four-time Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of 30-plus books, including Blister, A Bad Day for Voodoo, and Wolf Hunt. His most recent releases are the YA novel Stranger Things Have Happened, and Everything Has Teeth, a short story collection. That he agreed to be in the anthology had all of us here doing a rather silly yet utterly respectful happy dance.
We’re also excited for Three on a Match’s upcoming release on September 5! Keep an eye out for the book trailer, which will be made public mid-August. Three on a Match is the second installment of the Terror Project, and features novellas from talented authors Melissa Crandall, g. Elmer Munson, and Kristi Petersen Schoonover, and is already garnering accolades. Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of The Twin’s Daughter, calls it “spooky, sinister, spine-tingling: these three keep-you-up-all-night tales . . . have it all!”
In celebration of Three on a Match’s release, we’re going to offer the first installment in the Terror Project, Triplicity, on sale in the week leading up to the publication date. Keep an eye out for a deep discount on this fantastic trio of novellas from Tony Tremblay, Rob Smales, and Stacey Longo!
That’s not the only sale we’re offering this month. Sasha & Jake by Terry George will be 30% off the print book the week of August 13, and the ebook will be only 99 cents! Keep an eye out for an opportunity to get the free must-have accessories of the fall when this book goes on sale: if you leave a review on Amazon, you’ll get a special prize, hand-crafted by the author!
