Dark Moon Books is the
newest imprint from Stony Meadow Publishing. Our plans are to publish a
minimum of two books per year. The genre is horror. That's right. We need more
scary stuff to keep us up late at night! Subject matter will include
everything from vampires and zombies to werewolves and witchcraft.
We are currently
closed to new submissions. We will re-open for submissions in March of
2011 and will be accepting horror novels, horror novellas and graphic
novels. Please check our submission guidelines or simply
contact us for more information.
We also invite authors to participate in
our horror short story contests. Visit

| COMING SOON: A
Forever Zombie: A Collection of Undead Guy
Not your typical
blood and gore zombie tales, even non-zombie fams should enjoy these stories.
With twelve tales with lots of tongue-in-cheek humor, you won't want to miss
this one. You can check out one of the short stories,
Every Death You Take with a simple click of the mouse.
(Interested zombies may need someone to read the story aloud to them...) You
can also visit the Forever Zombie
Forever Zombie is also available through
Amazon and other online bookstores.
"Forever Zombie caught me by surprise. There is a
sinister humor here reminiscent of Edward Gorey, and a playfulness that echoes
Roald Dahl. It's a curious mix, but it works great. Trust me: whichever way
your pleasure tends, whether it's a subtly placed bit of characterization or a
deliciously plotted twist ending, you're going to find something to love here.
Forever Zombie is a hit!"
--Joe McKinney, Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead
NOTE: "Forever Zombie" is currently
unavailable as it is undergoing a major edit. The revised version will be
available the 2nd quarter of 2011. Put your name on our mailing list and
we'll let you know when it is available.

by Araminta Star
When the adults in this small town become
monsters, itís time for the children to grow up. And fast. Nestled in the
pine-studded hillsides of New England rests the town of Newton, population
3,812 Ė and that population just got a heck of lot smaller. That is, if the
Census Bureau decides not to count the walking dead. After a terrible
accident at a scientific facility, an uncontrolled virus sweeps through the
cozy town of Newton turning all the adults into black-eyed, flesh-eating
zombies, and only a handful of children trapped inside an abandoned high
school seem to know about it. Will a nine year-old genius, a street-smart
tween maladjust, a pair of high school sweethearts, and a jealous little
sister be enough to outmaneuver the chomping jaws of the zombie hordes that
surround them? And if all the adults have become the legions of the undead,
who will protect them?
