Advance Praise for The Shadows Behind
Kristi Petersen Schoonover’s upcoming collection, The Shadows Behind, is already garnering early praise from notable authors.
John Palisano, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Ghost Heart and vice president of the Horror Writers Association, writes, “Kristi Petersen Schoonover’s The Shadows Behind explores the uncanny, strange, and underlying darkness behind white picket fences. The stories that make up The Shadows Behind are curated as perfectly as a rose garden, only one will need to watch out for the thorns . . . and the bodies buried below, nourishing their roots.”
Palisano is not the only award-winning author talking about The Shadows Behind. Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of Zombie Abbey, recently wrote: “Kristi Petersen Schoonover does it again with this original collection of observant and haunting stories that will leave readers turning pages long into the night as they tell themselves: Just one more story . . . just one more . . .”
The collection, which features an introduction by Stacy Horn (Damnation Island, Perfect Harmony), will be released April 30 from Books & Boos Press.
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!
