Die, You Bastard! Die! & Ravenous Shadows Launch Today!
by Jan Kozlowski
It’s Launch Day! It’s Launch Day!
Ravenous Romance’s new horror/mystery/thriller imprint, Ravenous Shadows, headed by horror legend John Skipp, debuted today.
In an interview with Publisher’s Weekly, Literary Partners CEO Holly Schmidt said, “It was always our plan to expand our business model to other fiction genres, and when we had the opportunity to work with John Skipp, we decided to start with horror/mystery/thrillers. Skipp provided us with a clear vision and strong point of view for the line, and really is the heart and soul of Ravenous Shadows.”
From Editor in Chief, John Skipp- “Welcome to Ravenous Shadows: a new line of startling, provocative genre fiction, dedicated to the proposition that short, powerful novels and novellas can pack as much punch, personality, and plot as books three times their size.”
The four novels launching the line are:
House of Quiet Madness by Mikita Brottman – an Ira Levin style mystery
- Tribesmen by Adam Cesare – an ultra violent 80’s style Italian cannibal horror
The Devoted by Eric Shapiro – a Hitchcockian take on a modern suicide cult
Die, You Bastard! Die! by Jan Kozlowski – a sexual abuse/revenge story somewhere between Misery and Last House on the Left.
All the gorgeous, kick ass cover art was done by the fabulous Paula Rozelle Hanback.
