Crowded Quarantine Publications © 2011-2018
As a result of our August open submission period, we are pleased to announce our line-up of releases for 2017. First of all we would like to thank every author who submitted during the open period. We had a really tough time selecting these final four manuscripts, and although there were probably a dozen novels we would have taken on, based upon quality of writing and plot alone, it was not economically feasible for us to do so.
So without further ado, here are the three novels being released next year through Crowded Quarantine Publications.
Luke Walker's Ascent will be released in June 2017. After a nuclear device is detonated outside RAF Lakenheath, Kelly Wells races for a nearby office block, frantic to find her sister in their last moments. At the same time, a handful of others do the same—all desperate to make it to loved ones before the bomb goes off barely fifty miles away. In the frozen second of the explosion, Kelly, her sister, and three strangers are trapped in that instant and trapped in the building. But they are not alone. A sleeping evil from the deepest pits of the earth has awoken. Stalked by a creature that knows their most private secrets and fears, the group are lost in a world of their individual Hells.
Luke Walker writes horror and fantasy fiction. His novel Hometown is published by Caffeine Nights, and the novella Mirror Of The Nameless is published by DarkFuse. His collection of short horror, Die Laughing, is also available. Follow Luke on Twitter @lukewalkerbooks or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
In September 2017 we will be publishing a new novel by Kristal Stittle entitled Yellow Line.
Jodie is a recent college grad who’s finally lined up an interview for a job in her field, not knowing that she’s never going to make it there. While riding the subway to get downtown, a mysterious blue substance falls from the sky, encasing the train car and trapping everyone inside. As if this wasn’t bad enough, it doesn’t take long for the passengers to realize that one among them is a killer.
Kristal Stittle was born and raised in Toronto where she still lives with her cat. She was trained in 3D animation and enjoys painting, but her true passion is writing. Although currently focused on writing horror novels and shorts, she also dabbles in children’s stories, an odd bit of poetry, and scripts for both film and TV.
In December 2017 we will be publishing Anthony Watson's Witnesses, based upon the legend of the Two Witnesses as described in the book of Revelations. Set in four different locations over four different time periods, the book explores the cyclical nature of the selection of the two witnesses.
Anthony Watson is co-founder and co-editor of Dark Minds Press alongside Ross Warren. He also has several short story credits to his name, and has appeared in collections from Sanitarium and Charon Coin Press. Anthony lives on the Northumbrian coast amongst its rolling hills, ancient castles and unspoilt beaches with Judith and their dog Themba.
