DININ’ is now available to Pre-Order in Signed Limited Hardcover from Bad Moon Books.

Synopsis:

On their way to Las Vegas for a weekend of debauchery; Dawn, Cindy and Morgan decide to stop at a greasy spoon to get some grub. Mel’s Diner looks like a decent enough place and their advertised ‘best burgers this side of Vegas’ entice the girls to give it a try. While at the diner; they eat, make fun of the restaurant’s patrons and finish the meal off by doing the most sacrilegious thing a customer can do – skip out on their bill.

What ensues is a large truck with its headlights off following them along a deserted stretch of road, a blinding light that causes them to almost wreck, a few shotgun blasts, a long walk down a dark road and some horrific events that unfold inside a cabin deep in the woods. Is it the diner’s owner coming to collect on girl’s tab or someone with more than just money on their mind? What do they want? What is the driver of the truck willing to do once they come to an abrupt stop on the side of the road?

The three college friends will find out soon enough.

Praise:

“Gruesome revenge tale with seriously icky moments! Like a written version of “I Spit On Your Grave”, but with a weird edge to it!”

— Morpheus Tales Magazine

“Ty Schwamberger’s new novella DININ’ is a truly terrifying tale of three college girls who make a stop at a roadside diner for a quick bite, and make the mistake of skipping out on their bill. What follows is an original take on those tales told in Road Rage and Joyride, with the terror multiplied by ten. Add in some very fine writing, and you have a horror story that even the most seasoned horror readers will have trouble clearing from their minds. DININ’ is one great story from a new, talented voice in the world of horror fiction.”

 — Michael Laimo, author of Sleepwalker and Return to Darkness

“Ty Schwamberger never fails to serve up the shocks and DININ’ is no exception. In it he pits an array of well-drawn characters against an action-packed buffet of butchery, savageness, and graphic mishap. Readers beware, DININ’ is not the safest menu choice for the timid-hearted.”

— Shroud Magazine

“Ty Schwamberger effectively conjures a fun Richard Laymon-esque atmosphere in DININ’. The terror starts early in this one and rarely lets up.”

— Bryan Smith, author of The Killing Kind, Depraved and Highways To Hell
