Cruentus Libri Press is closed to submissions for the foreseeable future.
Over the last twelve months we have released seven anthologies, featuring some of the best horror talent from around the world. We currently have a backlog of anthologies to be compiled and published and, in order to do them justice, we will not be accepting any new submissions, hence the removal of the Writer’s Guidelines from the site.
Due for release over the next two months are The Dead Sea, Under the Knife, War Is Hell, Horror-tica, Another 100 Horrors and The Best of Cruentus Libri Press.
Once all these books have been completed and released, we will have a chance to breathe and take stock of where we intend to go as an independent publishing house. In the meantime, all of our books remain available for purchase on Amazon in both Kindle and print versions.
In celebration of the fact that we didn’t all die in 2012, following an hilarious misunderstanding by the Mayans, for the month of January the prices of all of our books have been slashed.
All paperbacks are now $9.99 in the US, £6.99 in the UK and €7.49 in Europe.
All Kindle editions are now $1.99 in the US and…well…whatever that translates to in your local currency!
There has never been a better time to pick up 100 Horrors, A Fistful of Horrors, Lucha Gore, The Dark Side of the Womb and You’d Better Watch Out!, but remember…this offer lasts only until the end of January 2013.
We wish all of our readers a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
In celebration of our latest anthology – You’d Better Watch Out! – we present the movie version of the lead story ‘The Gnome Before Christmas’ by the über-talented Angela Pritchett.
Our latest anthology, You’d Better Watch Out! is now available, just in time for the festive season.
Full details can be found HERE.
Up next…The Dead Sea. A collection of undead tales set on the high seas.
Our Christmas-themed anthology – You’d Better Watch Out! – will be available in print and Kindle formats within a matter of days.
In the meantime, to whet your appetite, here is one of the tales that didn’t quite make it. Though it was not what one might consider a traditional horror story (whatever that is) After It’s a Wonderful Life is a beautifully written and poignant piece that gives a particularly bleak twist to a Christmas classic.
Vincent L. Scarsella hails from Davenport, Florida and has published many stories and non-fiction works in a writing career that spans more than a decade. His forthcoming crime novel, The Anonymous Man will be published by Aignos Publishing in early 2013 and you can keep up to date with his various comings and goings at his website.
At long last, the first of our three-volume set of childhood horror anthologies has hit Amazon’s virtual bookshelves.
Full purchase details for The Dark Side of the Womb can be found HERE.
Its sister volumes – Suffer the Little Children and From Their Cradle to Your Grave – should be out by the end of this month.
There have been a few issues with the print edition of Lucha Gore: Scares from the Squared Circle, but we are glad to announce that these have now been resolved, so feel free to pick up a copy – details HERE.
