Coming November 2018

After seven years as a humor columnist for the Block Island Times and ten years as a weekly humor blogger on staceylongo.com, Stacey Longo is finally offering past columns and blog posts in chapbook and e-book form. Each book in the series will take a lighthearted look at a specific topic. The first installment, Longo Looks at Dieting, is available now for preorder on Kindle (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KDZQKRM) for only $2.99. The print version will retail at $4.99. The paperback version of Dieting will be released in tandem with the second chapbook, Longo Looks at Christmas, on November 18.

“Over the years, I’ve had people ask if I was ever going to organize and publish some of my past columns. So I finally got off my tuckus and started doing it,” Longo says. Two more installments are scheduled for release in 2019.

Longo Looks at Dieting “won’t really tell you how to lose weight,” the author says. “Mostly it’ll assure you that you’re not the only one who can go through a colonoscopy prep and actually gain weight. I blame bad genes. Maybe you blame bad jeans. Both are perfectly acceptable excuses.”

Your ‘Three A.M. Wake-Up Call’ is Available

We have released the final installment of the Terror Project series, THREE A.M. WAKE-UP CALL, this past Tuesday (June 5).

In coordination with our new release, we’re putting the first two books in the Terror Project on sale:

TRIPLICITY and THREE ON A MATCH will be $9.99 (30% off) for the paperback and $1.99 for the e-book (50% off) from June 4–10.

TRIPLICITY will also be coming out on audiobook any day now (I received an email from ACX on Wednesday saying it was “heading to retail,” but no indication of when it will be available). Tony and Rob, I’ll update you when it’s available.

THREE ON A MATCH is heading into audio production now, with an anticipated October release date for the audiobook. Then our narrator will move on to the final book.

Terror Starts at ‘Three A.M.’ in June

Books & Boos Press is pleased to reveal the cover for our upcoming release, Three A.M. Wake-Up Call. The third and final installment in the Terror Project series, the collection features three novellas: “Chew Toys” by Nick Cato, “Clinton Road” by Rob Watts, and “Roons” by David Daniel. 

The cover was created by artist A.L. Cortez, who designed the covers for Triplicity and Three on a Match, the other two books in the series. “I wanted each book to share elements that tied them together—the recurring central figure, whom I’ve come to think of as a ‘terror muse’—and repeating illustrations forming a pattern in the background. But I also strived to make each cover uniquely its own.”

The stories in Three A.M. Wake-Up Call bring the series to an end by returning to more traditional, haunting horror. Cato’s “Chew Toys” answers the question, What if Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz wasn’t lying about his neighbor’s dog ordering him to kill? with entertainingly gruesome glee. Watts’s “Clinton Road” follows the path of a woman struggling with the disintegration of her marriage who takes up residence on a road steeped in urban legend and rumored paranormal activity. The collection ends with Daniel’s “Roons,” in which a man in his middle years returns home to find a haunting mystery that has waited decades to be unearthed.

Three A.M. Wake-Up Call is scheduled for release the first week of June.
