Back cover blurb:

Evil Doesn’t Die—It Adapts

Three years ago, Samantha Cane and Frank Carter’s lives were destroyed as their city became the staging ground for a cult dedicated to the King in Yellow. When the cult enacted a plan to throw the city into chaos, Frank and Sam stopped them with the help of a group called the Parted Veil. But the victory came at a high cost, and it was short-lived. The followers of the King in Yellow are persistent, and their operation in Springfield was just one of many.

Now members of the Parted Veil themselves, Sam and Frank continue to follow the cult's activities and thwart them whenever they can. A rash of disappearances has led them to a small town in Tennessee, where an old mining operation may be the cult’s latest workshop of horrors.

Each step they take toward discovering the scope of the cult’s plan costs them another piece of themselves. And some questions are better left unanswered.

Bustle Recommends IT Fans Take a Trip to the DARK CARNIVAL

In just under four weeks, the newest film adaptation of Stephen King's IT has made over $293 million at the U.S. box office alone. As you might imagine, a lot of people who are encountering the property for the first time have gone and picked up the original book as well, as the 1986 book was recently back to appearing on bestselling lists. And like any great read, finishing IT leaves people wanting another scary story to jump into.

Charlotte Ahlin over at Bustle recently put together a list of books she recommends for anyone who enjoyed IT and was looking for more clown and carnival-related horror. And it just so happens that one of the books she recommended has a story of mine in it.

Dark Carnival is an anthology that started as a writer and illustrator showcase over the Pen and Muse website, which was run by my writing partner Jolene Haley and Kristen Jett.


If you want to dip your toe in before investing that dollar, you can read my entry from Dark Carnival ("Exposure") for free.


There are so many talented people who have entries in that anthology that there's definitely something for all horror fans. Jolene, Kristen and Jessi Shakarian did an amazing job of pulling that collection together and I'm so glad to see people still enjoying it and recommending it. Thanks again to Charlotte for showing our book some love!
