New Release special from Crystal Lake Publishing!



To celebrate today’s launch (and since it’s Black Friday) we’re keeping the Kindle edition at 99c for the day (price goes up to $3.99 tomorrow morning): https://geni.us/BoySpider

A transformative science fiction and horror novella about acceptance, reflection, and revenge.

Jeff Pritchet isn’t much different from other teenage boys, with one exception. His monstrous, spider-like appearance and loner persona make him a target for bullying, when all he wants is a friend who sees beyond the surface. 
Enter transfer student, Aarav Jain. Thoughtful, accepting, and insightful, he sparks an untapped hope in Jeff, transforming his life. But as the boys grow closer, their deepening relationship becomes hijacked by a darkness Aarav can’t escape and a life-altering secret Jeff can barely contain. 
The unconventional pair find themselves marked for hatred, and when his bond to Aarav is threatened, Jeff discovers a sinister side he never knew he had, proving that, when pushed too far, emotions can be deadlier than venom.

It’s book launch day at Crystal Lake Publishing!



Come dive into a trilogy of dark humor novels that follows the bloody journey of Sarah Killian, a strong female…serial killer for hire (book 1 in the series is free!): http://getbook.at/SarahKillianSeries

Sarah Killian is not your average young American woman. For one thing, flowers and chocolates are not the way to win her heart. For another, she's a Professional Serial Killer (P.S.K.).

Sarah works for a clandestine organization known as the Trusted Hierarchy of Everyday Murderers (T.H.E.M.) that sends her undercover on secret missions across the country to kill people for hire. But don't confuse her with an assassin - she hates assassins. It's the perfect job for a sociopathic antisocial young woman.

But Sarah's seemingly perfect arrangement gets a major machete thrown into the gears when her boss, Zeke, hoists upon her a P.S.K.-in-training, Bethany. Bethany is everything that Sarah is not - outgoing, chatty, and perky.

To disrupt Sarah's happy existence even further, a dark shadow from T.H.E.M.'s past emerges and is hell-bent on bringing T.H.E.M.—and Sarah, if need be—down.

Out today from Crystal Lake Publishing and Edward J. McFadden III: https://getbook.at/TerrorPeak

Can you survive the mountain?



Abominable Peak is the gnarliest hill in the Rocky Mountains. Only hardcore boarders and skiers ride there. No groomed trail posers allowed. Skill, moxie, and money rule.
Not this season.
Former pro snowboarder Charles ‘Chance’ Hance is running from a drug addiction triggered by an injury, struggling with no longer being a pro, and chasing the ghost of his grandfather who died on the peak under suspicious circumstances. Riding is an addiction, and pain killers aren’t the only things that made him a junkie.

What was supposed to be a fun week with his old crew turns tragic when Chance is caught in an avalanche and barely escapes nature’s fury…and something more.

An ancient horror prowls the peak.

Chance’s obsessions shift as he hunts the yeti-like creatures, and is forced to fight for his life.

“Terror Peak is a beautifully written adventure-slash-horror novel with a main character readers will care about from start to finish, a great read for those who love their fiction with a pulse that pounds!”—Michael Laimo, author of Deep in the Darkness and Dead Souls

“Terror Peak gives us extreme sports, extreme weather, extreme geography, and an extreme monster. Toss in Chance, a genuinely extreme character whose name is not without symbolism, and you've got a book you can judge by the cover: Terror Peak is a terrific horror thriller.”—Mort Castle, three-time Bram Stoker Award® winner, and his most recent book is the fiction collection Knowing When to Die, from Independent Legions Publishing.

It's book launch day at Crystal Lake Publishing!

What would you do if you came across a frozen leg in the Mississippi River? Or found a femur by your shed after your neighbor’s husband disappeared? What would you do if your best friend was missing and the only evidence available to find him was the leg he left behind?
This anthology tackles these questions—and more—in a collection of flash stories, responding to the age-old statement: it could be anyone’s leg.



★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “This collection by Minnesota writers is a delightful exercise in horror, from the satirical, to the sci-fi, to the downright creepy. The best part is discovering how each author chooses to build their story around such a chilling premise.”—Meg Hafdahl, Daughters of Darkness

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Millipedes worldwide rejoice! The book you’ve been waiting for is here. Nine stories featuring lost limbs, bloody stumps, strange curses, and lots and lots of legs. Suspenseful, grim, surreal, and darkly funny, these stories are flashes of inspiration. So tuck your legs safely underneath you, curl up on the couch, and enjoy the hell out of this book!”—Jay Bechtol

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Fun and fast. Brutal in some places. Wonderfully evil in others. This collection of incredible flash fiction has something to offer everyone. Horror lovers take note, this is not a book to miss.”—Rex Hurst, author of What Hell May Come and the Aristotle Anderson series

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "The stories in this collection all start with the intriguing titular premise and then bounce it through a myriad of genres, including: dark humor, crime, horror, speculative fiction & Monty Python style absurdity."—Ben Lathrop

This psychological thriller follows a family to their Appalachian farmhouse, where they encounter an unimaginable horror.

In the summer of 1994, psychologist Daniel Hill buys a rustic farmhouse nestled in the rolling hills of West Virginia.

Along with his wife and teenage daughter, the family uproots their lives in Ohio and moves south. They are initially seduced by the natural beauty of the country setting. That soon changes when they discover a hidden room in the basement with a well, boarded shut and adorned with crucifixes.

Local legends about the previous owner being an exorcist come to light, but by then, all Hell has broken loose.

This 1990s horror novel is perfect for fans of family thriller books, stories of demonic possession, exorcism fiction, the occult, or thrillers like The Exorcist, A Head Full of Ghosts, and The Amityville Horror.

“I actually slapped my palm over my mouth at one point to keep myself from screaming… Chilling attack scenes and a polished plot make The Exorcist’s House a top-notch read. Possession stories never grow old for me, and I devoured this one.”—Kendall Reviews

“Featuring one of the absolute best openings for a supernatural horror in recent years, Nick Roberts’ The Exorcist’s House invites readers into a story with familiar beats and rarely seen twists.”—Leviathan Libraries
