Books & Boos Press Accepts ‘Abandoned’ by Author Dan Foley

Books & Boos Press is pleased to announce that we will be publishing Abandoned by author Dan Foley. This novel tells the tale of a disturbed serial killer with abandonment issues, using horror and humor effectively throughout.

Author Dan Foley.

Author Dan Foley.

Foley is the author of Intruder and The Whispers of Crows, among other works. Since retiring as a nuclear engineer, he has been writing full time, and his short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies over the years. His short story “Roses for My Lady” won the Killer Kritique contest in Wicked Karnival, Issue 3, and his entry “The Merchant, the Witch, and the Christmas Tree” received an Honorable Mention in Wicked Karnival, Issue 5’s Twisted Fairy Tales contest.

“Dan has a very dark sense of humor, and it really comes through in Abandoned,” says Stacey Harris, the managing editor for Books & Boos Press. “He does a great job of making a seriously disturbed serial killer an almost sympathetic character.”

Abandoned is currently scheduled for release in June 2016.

Welcome to Books & Boos Press!

Books & Boos Press is a small publishing press based in Connecticut. We specialize in well-written books by lesser-known authors. Currently, we are accepting submissions by invitation only, but check back often—we expect to open up our submissions to everyone at some point in 2014!

Headed by journalist and publicist Jason Harris and writer and editor Stacey Harris, Books & Boos Press is well aware of the challenges that face the writing and publishing industry today. We work hard to promote our authors and books, and offer strategies and advice to our writers on how they can promote themselves.

Our first project is due out in October 2013. Secret Things is a collection of creepy tales by author Stacey Longo, and is a compilation of twelve tales highlighting the darker side of human nature. Longo is a former humor columnist for the Block Island Times, and turned her pen to horror in 2010. She’s been published in over a dozen anthologies and magazines, and maintains a weekly humor blog at http://www.staceylongo.com. We’re excited to debut our press with her collection! Currently, artist Stephanie Johnson (http://sljohnsonimages.com) is working on the cover, and we’ll post that here as soon as it’s finished.

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope to see you here again soon.
