Recent Events

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.

Advance Praise for ‘Echoes of Darkness’

Echoes of Darkness by Rob Smales, to be released at the end of February by Books & Boos Press, is already garnering advance praise.

2016-01-10 16.12.33

“Reading Rob Smales’s collection Echoes of Darkness is a lot like munching on barbeque potato chips—once you’ve dived into the first story, it’s almost impossible not to keep reading until the end. Smales has a refreshing, clean prose style that is accessible and engaging. In particular, I recommend this book to readers who are new to the genre, as Smales comes up with some nifty and clever riffs on some traditional horror tropes,” says Bram Stoker Award nominated writer Hal Bodner. Bodner  is the author of The Trouble With Hairy and Bite Club.

“The writing of Rob Smales hits you like a whip cracking against a spine. Your flesh tears with each whack, yet you keep asking for more, and no matter how bloody and painful the night becomes, you pray it never ends,” Max Booth III, author of How to Successfully Kidnap Strangers, said.

Alex Scully recently reviewed Echoes of Darkness for The Horror Review. “Smales tosses the traditions of genre by taking classic tropes like zombies, and giving his readers a wicked twist in the end. We all know how zombie stories end, right? Think again. ‘A Night at the Show,’ the second tale in this collection, illustrates the Smales touch wonderfully. A werewolf story. Nicely done. Well written. Fantastic characters, and then . . . the end. Woah! Was that what I expected? Not in the least.” (To read Scully’s full review, please visit http://www.horrorreview.com/echoes-of-darkness-book-review/.)

Readers will be able to purchase Echoes of Darkness on Feb. 28 from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and select retail stores. Smales will be signing copies of his book at Queen City Kamikaze in Manchester, NH on March 12, and at Super MegaFest in Marlborough, MA on April 8–10.
