Out now from Crystal Lake Publishing! A brand new poetry collection by the Bram Stoker Award-winning poet, Alessandro Manzetti.
 
“No Mercy is a journey through time and history on a real/surreal road, rocking and rolling with no pity. Manzetti’s poems inspire a transcendent reality, a dream reality that slips in and out of nightmares; earthscape ruled by sensory overload, soul underload and imagination that melts into hunger for love, life and music. I loved this unearthly and yet strangely familiar meal laid before my eyes.”—Linda D. Addison, award-winning author of “How to Recognize a Demon Has Become Your Friend”

Whispered Echoes is nothing short of a feast for those of us who appreciate old school horror with a nefarious modern twist, and with it, I hope Paul Olson gets every bit of the acclaim he so richly deserves.”—Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin, and Sour Candy.

Authors…

Crystal Lake Publishing has added a $10 a month tier to their Patreon page which focuses on helping authors.

We will post one video lesson per month presented by one of our authors or editors, focusing on current issues authors are struggling with. Questionnaires will go out regularly to help us better understand what you’re going through. Supporters will also receive all our non-fiction books as they are published, for as long as they support this tier. $10 patrons will also receive all rewards from the lower tiers.

The first video goes out in the first week of July, with editor Doug Murano (GUTTED, BEHOLD, SHADOWS OVER MAIN STREET) talking about what anthology editors look for, pitfalls while submitting, and the overall anthology editing process (among other things). Sign up now so you don’t miss out: https://www.patreon.com/CLP

This is also a great way to help us better support our own authors and editors.
