I'm pretty sure they will do.

I was thinking the same thing actually :D Best of luck for all that is going on in 2013 Joe!

Thanks, Dawn and DS.

Wow congratulations on starting your own publishers! The covers looks badass and I look forward to reading each of the collections as they come out.

Thanks, Vel.

Our very first author interview just went up. It features horror author Jeremy C Shipp (and one of his attic clowns). Funny and informative.

I enjoyed that very creative interview, Joe.  It was one of the more entertaining blog talks I've come across  :)

Great review for my Lost in the Dark collection at Sanitarium Magazine: http://sanitariummagazine.com/lost-in-the-dark-review/

Here are a few of my favourite bits:
Let it be said that the mind of Joe Mynhardt is an idea factory.  This factory doesn’t product toys or furniture, cars or televisions.  No, the factory inside the head of Mynhardt produces pure, unceasing, unadulterated horror.  This is a man who writes nearly as much as he breathes, and that’s vividly apparent in his collection of short stories, Lost in the Dark.

I came away from Lost in the Dark excited not only about Mynhardt and the stories he presents, but about the possibilities of short form horror in general.  Kudos, Mr. Mynhardt.  Keep ‘em coming.

Thanks, Sio and Dawn.

Let me just promote Sio a bit. She was an amazing help as editor on this one.

I can finally reveal one of Crystal Lake Publishing's secret projects. Five amazing zombie writers (including myself) will collaborate on Children of the Grave. It'll contain several short stories, all taking place in the same world, with the same rules and characters.

TOC includes: Joe McKinney, Armand Rosamilia, Ryan Miller, Ian Woodhead and myself. Cover art, as before, was done by the talented Ben Baldwin.
