A Home for My Baby?

I received an e-mail today from a writer friend who knows about this project.

It said, "Here's something you don't see everyday: A publisher seeking 'horror, dark crime & psychological thrillers' written from a biblical worldview ..."

With a link to: Dark Cloud Press.

He excerpted some of the details from the page.


Dark Cloud Press seeks to publish fiction with biblical values for the secular market. The name of the company comes from 2 Chronicles 6:1: "The Lord has said that he would dwell in a dark cloud."

The mission of Dark Cloud Press is to entertain readers by publishing meaningful and decent high quality trade paperback fiction in the genres of horror, dark crime, and the psychological thriller.


Dark Cloud Press cleaves to these values in fulfilling its mission:
  • To publish fiction, although dark, of moral meaning and decency that stands in contrast to the rest of the market.

  • To pave a way in the publishing industry for work marginalized or ignored by mainstream publishing, whether secular or Christian.

  • To publish and promote the work of talented new and existing writers who are committed to the values of Dark Cloud Press in all their writing.

  • To publish powerful stories that are both entertaining and thought-provoking. Manuscripts will be selected and books published based on these values toward the fulfilling of Dark Cloud's mission.

I'll let you check out the rest at the website.

I e-mailed him back with the comment that now I'll have to finish the thing ... and send it in.


In other "sending it in" news, I sent "Gift of the Mad Guys" off to this publisher over the weekend (should it be accepted it'd be included in the book at the bottom of the page).
