Book Launch Party

The following is a press release from Woodland Press:

BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. – A new book launch party and epic booksigning event will take place this weekend at Huntington Mall Borders, on Sat., Apr. 3rd, from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

The new title, Dark Tales of Terror, includes sixteen bone-chilling short stories by West Virginia storytellers with strong appetites for the macabre—and most of the contributing writers will be on hand for the activities.

According to event planners, this book release party—on the day before Easter—will represent the single largest gathering of Appalachian authors since the West Virginia Book Festival, last October in Charleston.

Scheduled to appear at Huntington Mall Borders will be 2010 Bram Stoker Award-winning editor Michael Knost, along with book contributors G. Cameron Fuller, Karen L. Newman, Brian J. Hatcher, Michael Fitzgerald, Lesley Conner, Karin Fuller, Ellen Thompson McCloud, S. Clayton Rhodes, Robert W. Walker, Ellen Bolt, Jessie Grayson, Miranda Phillips Walker and Jason L. Keene.

“The public is cordially invited to this special event,” said Lill Neace, of Borders. “We’re very excited. The authors will be here greeting the public and signing copies of Dark Tales of Terror.”

Just back home from the 2010 World Horror Convention in Brighton, England, after winning the coveted Stoker Award on Mar. 27th, Knost says that within the pages of the new title lie.... “terrifying ghost tales sure to cause more than a few sleepless nights.  It is a gripping anthology—full of Southern-fried horror of the first degree.”

During the scheduled event, Knost will also be signing copies of the award-winning title, Writers Workshop of Horror, as well as his other books, including the popular Legends of the Mountain State series.

Woodland Press, of Chapmanville, WV, published the new anthology.  For additional information about the event, call Borders, 120 Huntington Mall, Barboursville, (304) 736-6233, or go online, at
