New Release! The Bury Box

THE_BuryBox_KINDLECOVER_final

After Lorie and her family move into their new home, strange things start to happen – things Lorie can’t explain. To make matters worse, her husband, Tom, starts to behave oddly, leaving Lorie to deal with the inexplicable on her own.

Meanwhile, her son, Reggie, experiences a different sort of phenomena: he encounters a figure he believes to be God. This being instructs him to dig a hole and bury himself. Is something trying to steal Reggie’s body or soul, or perhaps both?

Trapped in a desperate game for survival, can Lorie keep her family together, or will unseen forces tear them apart?

My second novella, The Bury Box, explores more traditional aspects of horror than my previous release, Zero Perspective. Set in a house in rural New York, this story explores death, and how a family perceives and deals with it, both adult and child. Born from my own obsession with death from a young age, the concepts in this tale represent not only my own understanding of our connection with it, but a shared connection of all things which live, and ultimately, die.

I hope you enjoy reading The Bury Box as much as I enjoyed writing it.

And here is a shot of the wraparound as a whole, because it looks spectacular! Thanks to the amazing cover work of Nina D’Arcangela!

RELEASE: Dark Passages: Moments of Transition and Dissonance by Shawn D. Standfast | #DarkFiction #Horror #Poetry @Sirens_Call @BooksR4Life

New release from Sirens Call Publications! Dark Passages by Shawn D. Standfast!

Spreading the Writer's Word

Dark Passages
Moments of Transition and Dissonance

Shawn D. Standfast

DarkPassages_KindleCover.jpgDark Passages is a collection of poetry caught in shadow, interweaving the remnants of memory, thought, dream, and desire.

Sample Poem:

Fire, Brimstone and Candlelight

Lost in a flow of phrases and emotions
Forever moving in motion to their rhythm
Sleet and hail burn a path through the night
With mindless movements shaping it all

Moonlight thunders past, chasing shadows
The smell of ozone and sulphur fills the air
Ghostly visions begin in euphoric delight
As fragments of misplaced moments converge

In a reflection of the storm’s fading glory
Silence shrouds once pulsating thoughts
Stillness reshapes hopes and dreams
As memories sleep in flickering candlelight

Dark Passages: Moments of Transition and Dissonance is
currently available from:

Amazon: US | UK | Canada | Australia | Germany | France | Spain | Italy
Japan | Mexico | Brazil | India |
