Last Night Out Cover copy

Cover by Thom Erb

The Special 5 Year Anniversary Edition of Last Night Out is now available for purchase in Trade Paperback and eBook. This edition includes an Introduction by Gene O’Neill and Afterword by yours truly, telling the origins of the book, and how this special edition came to be.

Synopsis:

Gabe, Alan and Erin thought one last night out on the town before their junior year of college came to an end would be fitting. The three friends did the same as always – they went to a bar. Only this time they decided to try someplace new: The Torchlight Inn. They are eager to make it a night to remember.

During their time at the shabby bar they come face to face with seedy bar patrons, a biker gang and one strange-acting bartender named T-Bone. But all is well until Alan and Erin mysteriously disappear and Gabe has to try and find his friends before being forced to pay their bar tab.

Little do any of them know the secret the place holds beneath its cracked floorboards…

Where a whole new kind of terror is waiting for them.

You can order your own copy in Trade Paperback and/or Kindle on Amazon.

Cheers!

Description

Escaping Lucidity is the complete short works of Ty Schwamberger. Within this tome you’ll be taken on a terror-filled ride through dark woods, the desert, a graveyard and dark streets, where monsters and strange creatures run amok. The other half of this collection is filled with characters driven to the brink of insanity, coping with the loss of loved ones, spousal abuse and fighting crime on the mean city streets. You’ll also find “Author Notes” after each story written by Schwamberger himself giving insight on why he wrote each particular story, interesting facts about characters, the story’s setting and where the work first appeared.

Are you ready for a mind-bending ride?

If not, don’t say you weren’t warned… ‘cause bad things tend to happen when you’re trying to escape lucidity.

Good Luck!

“This is a stellar collection of work — each story is its own character, with its own voice, its own points to make, and its own share of distinctive scares and poignancy.  You never feel like you’ve read this story before, earlier in the collection.  Just strap yourself in and let Ty Schwamberger show you what the next generation of dark-fiction writers have in store for the rest of us … and try to not look over your shoulder afterward.”  ~ Gary A. Braunbeck, 7-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award and author of IN SILENT GRAVES and TO EACH THEIR DARKNESS

The Killing Club — Going Out-of-Print

Posted in Published Works, Storefront with tags , on May 14, 2015 by Ty Schwamberger

The Killing Club_ebook cover

The Killing Club, for whatever reason, is my most overlooked work. This 25k word novella was published exclusively in digital format in June 2013 by Crossroads Press. It will now be going Out-of-Print on Sunday, May 17th. So, you only have a few days if you would like to download this novella to your Kindle or Nook.

Synopsis:

Kristen always wanted to be part of the “in crowd.” Her social worries intensified after transferring from a small, public school to private, upscale Smithshire Academy in the middle of her high school career. She wanted so badly to be part of the social network in her new school, she didn’t think twice when one of the existing members of the popular girl’s group, The K-Club, invited her over one night for a sleepover. Where all the girls whose names started with the letter “K” are going to be. Kristen’s self-doubt allows her to be pulled into the group on one condition…

She must first go through the initiation process that the other girls have set forth before her.

What ensues is a group of popular high school girls practicing in the occult, Kristen going over to a stranger’s house to “scare” them and sacrifices to secure Kristen’s spot in high school legend.

Will all Kristen’s work be enough to appease the girls of The Killing Club and the great God of high school popularity to let her into the group?

The extent of blood that Kristen wishes to get on her hands will hold the answer.

You can still watch the original book trailer on YouTube.

I thought some of you that are still on the fence about purchasing a copy would like to see some actual photos of the signed, limited edition hardcover of The Death of a Horror Writer.

Hope you dig them enough to pick up one of the few remaining copies. If so, you can do so via the link below.
