Last Night Out — Now Available!

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

Updates & Upcoming

Below is a rundown of what’s taken place as of late and what to look out for during the remainder of 2015 and into 2016.

2015

  • My atypical werewolf novella Grave Intentions went out of print a few months ago.
  • Three books went out of print in May: The Killing Club, Last Night Out and Deep Dark Woods.
  • The audio book edition of DININ’ should be released mid to late June.
  • June/July will see the release of my short story collection, Escaping Lucidity. This will be released in Trade Paperback and eBook editions by Ravenswood Publishing and contain a special introduction by John R. Little.
  • Later this year will see the re-release of my critically acclaimed atypical zombie novella, The Fields. It will still contain the Introduction by Jonathan Maberry that was in the original edition by Apex Publications in 2011. The new edition will be released in Trade Hardcover, then soon after in Trade Paperback and eBook editions by SST Publications and contain a new Foreword by Joe McKinney and an Afterword by me telling the history behind the book. This new edition will also have a new wraparound cover and new interior illustrations. This one is going to be a beauty!
  • Late this year will see the release of the audio book edition of Escaping Lucidity by Cup O’ Tea Productions.
  • (Last week I also received word from a publisher who will be picking up and re-releasing The Killing Club, however I can’t tell you more, as I have yet to receive, sign and return the contract.)

2016

  • A Special 5 Year Anniversary Edition of Last Night Out will be released in Trade Paperback and eBook editions by Ravenswood Publishing and contain a new Introduction by Gene O’Neill. Release Date, TBA.
  • Grave Intentions will be re-released in Trade Paperback and eBook editions by Ravenswood Publishing and contain new Forewords by Ray Garton & James A. Moore. Release Date, TBA.
  • An anthology titled, Cadence in Decay, will be released in Trade Paperback and eBook editions by Ravenswood Publishing. I will be the Editor on this project. Be on the lookout soon for the cover art, as well as the list of contributors. I guarantee you’re going to love this one. Release Date, TBA.
  • (I’m also working on one or two other potential projects for 2016, possibly 2017. More on those when/if things develop as I believe they should.)

That’s all the news I have for now. The remainder of 2015 and 2016 should bring some exciting re-releases and new books.

And remember…

The End is the New Beginning.
