Recently, we attended two events to promote our authors, their books, and the other books we have published.
Queen City Kamikaze in Manchester, New Hampshire, was the first event we attended. This convention is a one-day show that has been going on for the past four years. This year we were joined by our authors Stacey Longo and Rob Smales. We also invited friend and fellow author Tony Tremblay to sell his books at our tables.

This past Friday, we set-up our books at the Author by the Sea event organized by the New England Author Expo. This event was held at Elks Lodge in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We were happy to have Smales at our table once again.

We at Books & Boos Press wants to give our readers a chance to fill their Kindles and other e-readers with spiders. We are giving away e-book copies of Where Spiders Fear to Spin by Peter N. Dudar from Nov. 27 through 30! Don’t miss this chance to read this novella by Dudar, who is a Bram Stoker Award Finalist.
Where Spiders Fear to Spin tells the tale of former soap opera star Sadie Mills, a woman literally haunted by her past whose final days are filled with horror. Her daughter resents taking care of her, her former lovers are dying off one by one, and her dead husband’s vengeful ghost has returned from the dead to drag her to hell.
To get your free copy, click here.
Along with giving away Spiders, we have lowered the price on Insanity. You can now get $2 off the e-book or print copy of Insanity Tales II: The Sense of Fear until Nov. 30.
The collection features eleven stories from six of New England’s finest storytellers. David Daniel, Stacey Longo, Dale T. Phillips, Rob Smales, and Ursula Wong each have two short stories in the book; Vlad V. contributed a novella. Multiple Bram Stoker winner Joe McKinney (Crooked House, Plague of the Undead) wrote the foreword.
The book is a themed anthology: each author based their stories on different senses, going beyond the traditional (sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste) to elements such as a sense of doom, of powerlessness to control the future, and a sense of false hope.

This was my 4th year being involved with this event. This involvement has always been with bringing authors and books to the Open Air Market. The market has always been successful and always has a lot of people coming out to it. This year was the busiest I have ever seen it. The attendance for this year’s event blows the other year’s attendance out of the water.

Maine artist Morbideus Wolfgang Goodell has been signed to create the cover art and interior illustrations for Where Spiders Fear to Spin, the upcoming novella by Peter N. Dudar, a Bram Stoker-nominated author, due out from Books & Boos Press early this summer.
A past illustration created by Morbideus Wolfgang Goodell.
Goodell describes his style of art as “visual requiem.” His designs are well known throughout the horror community. His most recent works include the cover illustration and design for Dark Art by Tim Waggoner (2014) and contributing to the interior art for Mister October, Volume I: An Anthology in Memory of Rick Hautala (2013).
“Morbideus Goodell’s art is haunting and evocative. He was our top choice to illustrate this book,” says Stacey Harris, managing editor for Books & Boos Press. “We’re so happy to have him on board for this project, and excited to be able to work with him.”
Goodell previously illustrated the cover of another Dudar novella, The Angel of Death (2013). His art is on display at http://www.facebook.com/morbideuswgoodell.
