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!

The project is a series of novella collections. Each installment will contain three novellas, with three books currently in the works.
The first installment, Triplicity: The Terror Project, Vol. 1, will debut in December 2016. Triplicity is comprised of “Steel” by Tony Tremblay (The Seeds of Nightmares), “The Christmas Spirit” by Rob Smales (Echoes of Darkness), and “Brando and Bad Choices” by Stacey Longo (Ordinary Boy). “We couldn’t be happier with the starting lineup,” said Marketing Director Jason Harris. “We’re coming out strong with this trio of impressive writers.”
The second installment is scheduled for release in fall 2017, and the third has a tentative release date of early 2018.
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.
