Rocking Horse Publishing Releases 3 Books, Rocking the Fiction World

Rocking Horse Publishing, based in St. Louis, Missouri, announces three enticing new releases.

The Descending Darkness

Seventeen-year-old Shadow hits rock bottom after transforming from demon hunter to babysitter for super-powered teenagers. A loner, Shadow is unsure how to deal with teens. The other problem? He needs to enlist their help to defeat his foe Maedara, the Queen of Evil, who is trying to take over the world. With a potential apocalypse near, Shadow needs to ensure his team survives it and that he saves the world.

Author Michael Chulsky grew up in New Jersey and has been writing ever since his fourth-grade teacher let him create a class newspaper to channel his creativity. He currently lives with his fiancé, and when not writing he enjoys listening to music and devouring every piece of cheesecake that falls into his line of sight.

Blend Frankenstein with legendary poet Emily Dickinson, and you begin understanding this fictional read. In the 1800s, at the encouragement of a close friend, Emily started writing poetry. As her loved ones began dying around her, Emily became a recluse, locking herself in her room for fear of death. Was she writing poetry? No, she was giving life back to the dead! Emily decides to build a “Second Life” apparatus that will give life back to small creatures. When her dearest friend passes away, Emily’s battle between science and spirituality begins, threatening to change her life forever!

Author Shannon Yarbrough is originally from the small town of Dyersburg, Tennessee. Since 2001, he has been living in St. Louis, Missouri. He self-published his first book in 2003. In 2007, he published Stealing Wishes and it was a semi-finalist in the first Amazon.com ABNA contest. He enjoys gardening and cooking. He lives with his partner of ten years, and their three dogs, and two cats.

October in the Bookstore

That’s a pretty lame title, and I hope you won’t hold it against me because –

Well, we have a LOT of stuff happening this month!

To start off, ALL week long we have 10% off local authors’ books – and that includes local publishers – AND you can register to win a Kobo E-reader. Just stop in today, tomorrow, or Saturday!

Speaking of Saturday, THAT is our big anniversary celebration! Yep, two years ago, October 1, 2011, Al Hrabosky and Tom Mee were there for our ribbon cutting. The eight weeks leading up to that, after we decided to open a bookstore, were pretty hectic but totally worth it!

So, anyway, on Saturday, noon to 4:00, we’re having refreshments, giveaways, and a drawing for that FREE Kobo – AND, we’re hosting the Deadly Duo with their two new books! Bill and Sharon Hopkins will be in town presenting River Mourn and Killertrust – you do NOT want to miss this!

We’re also having Liz Schulte in the store on October 12, and Jo Hiestand and Estelle Luttrell on October 19. Great authors, fantastic books!

Coming October 26, we’re having a Halloween party! But not just ANY Halloween party – Rocking Horse Publishing is launching a new book: Dickinstein. Food, fun, and absolute CROWDS are expected – live music, too, thanks to Davey Vaughn of This is Our Dance, an awesome local band!

Now that I’ve used up my allotment of exclamation marks for the foreseeable future, come take a look at our Facebook page and website and see everything we have to offer at All on the Same Page!
