Four 'til Late Cover Reveal With Eric Garrison

Edited by Joshua H. Leet, Four 'til Late will take readers who enjoy paranormal fiction along for a haunted road trip!  In Four 'til Late, amateur ghost hunter Brett and his friends Gonzo, Jimbo, and Liz are on a road trip with dangerous detours, dreadful dreams and dire warnings. But that won't keep them from reaching their goal: New Orleans. Along the way they discover that some spirits leave you with more than a hangover and regrets. Can they get there in one piece, or will they be stopped and rest in peace?
The bags are packed, the engine's running. Turn up the radio and get moving because the road ghosts are waiting, and it's Four 'til Late.
Eric Garrison lives in Indianapolis, Indiana with his wife, stepdaughter, and, as he describes it, “an alarming number of cats.” A paranormal enthusiast and home brewer, Eric is the author of dark fantasy and science fiction novels including the Road Ghosts Trilogy (Seventh Star Press) and Reality Check (Hydra Publications).   Four 'til Late will be released in both print and eBook formats during the beginning of June.  For further information on Four 'til Late and the Road Ghosts Trilogy, please visit www.seventhstarpress.com

Cover Reveal of The End Was Not the End Anthology

For Immediate Release March 28, 2013 SSP Proudly Announces Cover Reveal of The End Was Not the End Anthology Seventh Star Press is proud to unveil the brand new cover art by the award-winning Bonnie Wasson for The End Was Not the End: Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy Tales, a fantasy-themed anthology from editor Joshua H. Leet. In regards to the theme of The End Was Not the End: Post Apocalyptic Fantasy Tales: Heroes prevail… usually. You sit close to a campfire, depending on its faint, flickering light to ward off the darkness. Yet the fire cannot hold back dark memories, thoughts of your fallen kingdom, of monsters across the land, of magic gone awry. Around fires like yours are seated other travelers, refugees from catastrophes none dare mention. Kings and queens huddle shoulder to shoulder with peasants, wizards share scraps with slaves, and each wishes only to be saved. Some will be lucky, for heroes yet remain in their lands. For others, hope was not among the provisions stuffed into a pack when fleeing home. Eventually the silence of the night grows too heavy, and someone speaks. They tell a tale of loss, of foolish pride and tragic mistake. With bravery stoked by company, others speak up, each sharing their own sorrows.  Before long, there are enough tales to fill a volume. The conversations continue through the night, and by the time dawn has filtered through the gnarled tree limbs, journeys must continue, and one by one, the strangers trudge away. Their worlds may have ended, but they have survived another night. They will continue on, seeking to rebuild upon the ruins of great dreams. Their stories linger upon the air, drifting into time like the smoke from their extinguished fires, fed only by faint embers. This book contains eleven stories set in worlds where an apocalypse has already come, but the characters you’ll read about aren’t quite ready for the end. The authors and stories featured in The End Was Not the End: Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy Tales include: Deedee Davies - "The Halls of War" Desmond Reddick - "Blood and Fire" Scott Sandridge - "Make Way for Utopia" Jay Wilburn - "Twenty Year Plan" Mandi M. Lynch - "Nightmares and Dragonscapes" Magda Knight -  "The Stone-Sword" William Ransom - "In the Hills Beyond Twilight" Steven S. Long - "Blade of Fire" Bill Blume - "Waist Deep" Darra L. Hofman - "Ben" Nathen Gallagher - "Story's End" The End Was Not the End: Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy Tales will be released in the first week of April in Trade Paperback and eBook formats.
