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.

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.

Spirits of St. Louis: Missouri Ghost Stories


A few months ago, our cover designer came up with an awesome book cover – sadly, it didn’t quite fit with our upcoming title, but then he had a lightbulb moment: let’s do a ghost story anthology!

So we put out the call for local ghost stories and got quite a response – well over 50 submissions during the two-month period. We couldn’t accept them all, but ended up with more than 30 finalists. And next week, we’ll be presenting Spirits of St. Louis: Missouri Ghost Stories!

They’re creepy and they’re kooky; they’re mysterious and spooky; they’re altogether ooky. Oh, wait . . . that’s the Addams family. Never mind. But you get my point, yes? We’ve got some really cool stories here, things that make you go “huh?” and ones that make you jump up and turn on all the lights. All of them. And make you lock your doors. And keep looking over your shoulder. And avoiding closets. And highways.

You can pre-order now, through RHP, and the books will be available in print and E-versions – Kindle, Kobo, and Nook – in the next couple weeks.

Many thanks to all our authors, you did a great job!
