Statement About RJ Cavender

We wanted to issue the following clarification, because there may be some confusion:

RJ Cavender has not been associated with the Cutting Block Books imprint, or with Farolight Publishing, since September of 2015.

Pre-Order Slice #2 !!

Our second Single Slice is now available for pre-order here.

The story is “Florie Detail,” written by Jason A. Wyckoff.  Jason’s first published work was the short story collection Black Horse and other Strange Stories (Tartarus Press 2012). He also contributed to two anthologies from Tartarus Press, Dark World (2013) and Strange Tales IV (2014), and to the anthology Horror: The Odd and the Bizarre (2015) from Sirens Call Publications.

Despite his being a relatively new author, we think Jason has an awesome future in horror! We at Cutting Block are thrilled to introduce him to our readers, and we hope to hear from him often.

And remember:  each Single Slice is ONLY 99 cents!

GigaGeek Magazine Interviews Lorne Dixon

GigaGeek Magazine, the online review site run by an enthusiastically self-proclaimed “group of geeks,” has just posted an interview with our own Lorne Dixon, discussing his new novel, Blue Eel.

This is a great interview for understanding what was in Lorne’s mind as he was crafting the novel that reviewers are calling “refreshing and original,” a “gripping yarn,” and “satisfyingly impossible to predict.”

As Lorne says in the interview, horror readers should “lead the way into uncharted waters” — which we interpret as, “come on in, the Eel water is fine.”   🙂

The Oklahoman Recommends Blue Eel

Oklahoma’s largest newspaper, The Oklahoman, has reviewed Blue Eel — and we have to say, it makes a pretty compelling case for why you should read the book!  See for yourself — read the review.

Congratulations to the entire team who brought us this fine anthology, most especially volume Editor R.J. Cavender, and of course, all of the excellent authors who are featured in the book. We couldn’t do it without them, first and foremost!

The Shadows Are Coming

We’re thrilled to confirm that, yes, Farolight Publishing has made a deal to bring the Shadows Over Main Street anthology series to our Cutting Block Books imprint!

If you’re unfamiliar with the first book of this series, check it out.  Unfortunately, the company who originally published the first book went out of business, so all editions of that book are now out of print.

Hoever, we’re excited to be working with series editors D. Alexander Ward and Doug Murano to bring you Shadows Over Main Street 2, slated for release in the second half of 2016!

Shadows Over Main Street, the home of small-town Lovecraftian terror — now at home with Cutting Block Books!

We Reveal: The First Single Slice!

And now the moment many of you have been waiting for — Cutting Block is proud to announce that the first Single Slice will be:

Lottons-1

“The Lottons Show”

by Marsheila Rockwell and Jeffrey J. Mariotte

We are so lucky to have two extremely talented, experienced and versatile writers as the inaugural authors of our new e-book-first series, Cutting Block: Single Slices.

We think you will love their story about a clown who is — as many clowns are — more than meets the eye.

Look for “The Lottons Show” to be available as an Amazon e-book in January!

Blue Eel — How Far Would YOU Go?

It’s finally here — Lorne Dixon’s new novel, BLUE EEL.

It’s about one man’s struggle to find his kidnapped daughter.  How far will he go?  How much of his humanity will survive his quest for vengeance?  Can we bring justice to the monsters around us, without becoming one ourselves?

Only YOU can supply the answer, by reading BLUE EEL.

A great Christmas gift — buy your copy today!
