Grave Intentions – Trade Paperback Edition

Rodney’s life started to spiral out of control after the untimely death of his beloved wife. He ended up on the rough streets: fighting for his sanity, his next fix and feeding himself. But it was his hunger for getting high and trying to forget his former life that was the hardest for him to control. Or at least he thought. Then came the night when he and another junkie walked into Parkside Cemetery, dug up the dead body of Becky Smithshire and…bit into her cold body.

That’s when Rodney’s life really changed.

Derrick, Craig, Joan and Stacy were the best of friends, if not a little more at times. Late one night before their impending first days of college, they decided to have a liquid-picnic in their local cemetery. It was supposed to be a night of laughs, booze and sex. Until Derrick came running back to his three friends, scared half to death. He started babbling about seeing something that looked like a werewolf.

Now the three friends must escape from the cemetery before the werewolf finds them and chomps them into little pieces.

Will all four friends survive? Or will the bloodline of the werewolf win the night?

Only the deepest bonds of friendship and something even greater holds the answer.

Go check out the book trailer, then head over to Amazon to purchase this 86 page atypical werewolf novella in Trade Paperback ($4.99) or Kindle ($1.99).

The Fields — Pre-Order Event!

THE ZOMBIE FEED PRESS, AN IMPRINT OF APEX PUBLICATIONS, RELEASES THE FIELDS BY TY SCHWAMBERGER

Lexington, KY December 15, 2011 – The Zombie Feed Press, an imprint of Apex Publications, is pleased to announce the release of THE FIELDS by Ty Schwamberger in Trade Paperback and eBook.

About the book:

Billy Fletcher learned to farm the family’s tobacco fields – and beat slaves – by the hands of his father. Now, his father is dead, the slaves have long since been freed, and the once-lush fields are dying. Salvation by the name of Abraham knocks on the farmhouse door, bringing wild ideas. He can help Billy save the plantation and return the fields to their former glory…by raising his father’s slaves from the dead.

Can the resurrected slaves breathe life back into the Fletcher farm? Having brought the slaves back from graves that his father sent them, can Billy be the kind master his father wasn’t? Is keeping the farm worth denying the men the freedom they earned with death?

Billy’s conscience holds the key to those mysteries, but not the biggest one: what does Abraham really want from the former slave owner’s son?

Welcome to The Fields.

New York Times bestselling author, Jonathan Maberry, states in the introduction for the book. “[The Fields]…is part horror story in the classic sense – misdeeds from the past coming back to haunt the present. It’s part zombie story. It’s part adventure. And it’s part social satire in its darkest sense.”

$7.95

What others are saying about THE FIELDS:

“The Fields is a merciless, pitchfork-to-the-face, homespun zombie adventure.  Schwamberger offers up a shotgun blast of graphic undead action in this unique take on the genre.”

— Shroud Magazine

“Ty Schwamberger knocks it out of the park with his novella, THE FIELDS. No sooner do you begin to read, than you realize that the story is much bigger than the words on the page. The setting is timeless, and the horror depicted much more than ghoul and gore. THE FIELDS is a story you don’t want to miss, and Ty Schwamberger is an author to watch, for he just may be headed for the major leagues.”  

— Deborah LeBlanc, Author of The Wolven

“An intelligent zombie morality tale, unlike anything you’ve ever read before.”

— Morpheus Tales Magazine

“If Nathaniel Hawthorne had known anything about zombies, this is the kind of story he’d have written.  I’m not joking.  This is some genuine old school horror.  With The Fields, Ty Schwamberger has given us a crime so horrendous it’s impossible to look away.  The sins of the father.  A deal with the devil.  It’s all here.  And Schwamberger makes it look so frustratingly easy.  This is one hell of a good story.”

— Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead.

“With The Fields, Ty Schwamberger did the near-impossible:  made zombies interesting to me again.  Not only interesting, but frightening, as well.  Throw in more than a dash of scathing social commentary, a pace that never stops to catch its breath, and a sly bit of gallows humor, and you’ve got a winner. Kick yourself if you miss this one.” 

— Gary A. Braunbeck, Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild Award-winner, author of To Each Their Darkness and A Cracked and Broken Path.

“Ty Schwamberger’s THE FIELDS is an original zombie tale that will satisfy lovers of grisly fiction and well told stories. Good characters, cool twists and great writing make this a story that grabs one by the scalp early on. Anything with a Southern vein and the specters that can invoke gets my slash of approval.” 

— Steven L. Shrewsbury, author of THRALL, BAD MAGICK and HAWG.

“The walking dead, a post-Civil War setting, and a sinister Lincolnesque figure add up to a fresh new take on the zombie mythos.”   

— Tim Waggoner, author of Nekropolis, Broken Shadows and Darkness Wakes.
