house call

House Call is now available from Journalstone in Trade Paperback. Below are all the goodies!

Synopsis:

Mariam thought it was going to be a weekend of relaxation. She has her little brother to take care of, but she can handle that without much of a problem. That all changes when Vince gets sick, and Mariam has no choice but to call the family doctor.

John and Nick decide tonight is perfect to burglarize a house. They stake the place out and are delighted to find the only people inside are a teenager and a young boy – an easy in-and-out job.

Or so they think.

What ensues is a battle between the siblings that are home alone and the two bad men.

Little do any of them know someone else plans to make a house call of their own.

Blurbs:

“Ty Schwamberger is (not so) quietly establishing a reputation for producing lean, mean tales of
true horror. He is a presence in the genre who warrants your attention and appreciation.”
~Tom Monteleone, 5-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award.
 
“House Call is suspenseful and chilling, in that ‘this thing could actually happen’ kind of way. It reminded me of some of the best work of Laymon and Koontz, and moves like a rocket!”
~Paul Kane, Bestselling and award-winning author of Before, Arcana and Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell.

 

“Dark, edgy, and quickly-paced, Ty Schwamberger’s HOUSE CALL is an unsettling, don’t-
answer-the-door chiller that’s sharp as a razor, and just as deadly.”
~Greg F. Gifune, author of Midnight Solitaire and God Machine.

“With/House Call, Ty Schwamberger raises his game to a new/level. Oozing suspense and dread,
Schwamberger brings horror home with a violent tale of a sister and brother fighting for their
lives against an all too human evil. Highly recommended.”
~Brett Talley, author of He Who Walks In Shadow and The Fiddle is the Devil’s Instrument.

“The ultimate 90s throwback—who put a slasher film in the/Home Alone/case at Blockbuster? It
was Ty Schwamberger, splicing the best of the VHS era together!”
~Nick Mamatas, author of The Second Shooter and Sabbath.

You can order your very own Trade Paperback copy of this unique novella + screenplay (the film version will be released this Spring) on Amazon.

“Thirst” — Optioned for Film

Michael Yurinko and I have known each other since October 2012. So it’s only fitting that after almost eight years to the day of trying to figure out something to work together on, we can finally announce a very exciting project that’s still in the very beginning stages. 

Back in June of this year we started chatting again about what to work on together. Michael told me he was looking for an atypical lycan tale. I was more than happy to send him the short story “Thirst” (Originally published in Werewolf Magazine, Issue #9, January 2009. Reprinted in For After Midnight, October 2011 and then again in Escaping Lucidity, June 2015). I also sent him my novella Grave Intentions (coming in mid-2021 from Crossroad Press). There is a passage in both (because the novella is based on the short story) that gives a flashback scene. This imagery and dialog must have struck a cord in Michael because he told me this specific part of the story was exactly what he was looking for. After I gave my permission to use some of “Thirst”, Michael wrote a first, then a second draft of what would be named, WHEN NOVEMBER ENDS.

Fast forward a few months and Michael let me know a few days ago that the screenplay for WHEN NOVEMBER ENDS has made an official selection of the Creepy Tree Film Festival

There is obviously still a long road ahead before any potential filming would begin, but let me tell you, if, or better yet, WHEN, it does happen, you aren’t going to want to miss it.

This will be, and already is, a truly special project that’s in the works.

Stay tuned!
