Monster Mania Con a blast for Sunbury Press horror authors Malafarina, Jordan and Rommel

Cherry Hill, NJ – Monster Mania Con was held at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ from Friday August 16th through Sunday August 18th, 2013.  Sunbury Press utilized its vendor space to promote the horror category.  Thomas Malafarina, Catherine Jordan and Keith Rommel were present to meet the crowds and sign free copies of their books.   The convention featured such celebrities as: Carrie Fisher, George Romero, Christopher Lloyd, Danny Glover, Malcolm McDowell, Sam Witwer,  Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Jessica Clark, Claire Coffee, Chandler Riggs,
Dick Warlock, Gary Busey, and many more…

Thomas Malafarina gave away dozens of his books including Fallen Stones, Ghost Shadows, 13 Nasty Endings, 99 Souls, Eye Contact and Gallery of Horror. Tom was very pleased to meet some fans who were familiar with his work.

Catherine Jordan promoted her debut novel Seeking Samiel to her female target audience.  Dozens of copies of her book found enthusiastic readers as well of piles of bookmarks.

Keith Rommel promoted his novel The Cursed Man, now in the works as a major motion picture.  The booth also displayed a large poster, postcards and buttons regarding the movie.  Keith was careful to give his signed copies to readers who promised to talk about his book and/or write a review.  Lots of patrons picked up buttons and cards, too.  Keith was also fortunate to meet representatives from Fangoria magazine, who promised to follow up with a book review and coverage of the movie, as it is being released.

In all, it was a very successful weekend for Sunbury Press and the authors, who got to meet their target audience in person — by the hundreds.

Thomas Malafarina’s “Gallery of Horror” now available in special 8×10 color edition

Camp Hill, PA – Sunbury Press has released a large format color edition of Thomas M. Malafarina’s latest book “Gallery of Horror”, a collection of ten short stories based on the dark collages of Keyser, West Virginia’s Nunzio Barbera. Nunzio’s collages can now be seen in their original color in this 8×10 version.

Regarding Thomas Malafarina’s “Eye Contact”
“If H.P Lovecraft were to write the “The Dead Zone”, this would be it …”  George Andrade, Horror News.net

About the Book:
GOH - color - webFrom 1970 to 1973, the television network NBC aired a program called “Night Gallery” hosted by Rod Serling who was best know for the series “The Twilight Zone” during the 1950s and 1960s. Each week, the show started with Rod standing in front of a work of disturbing artwork displayed on an easel. Next he would proceed to introduce the night’s feature play, which always carried the same title as the displayed work of art.

In the tradition of “Night Gallery”, horror author Thomas M. Malafarina and contemporary artist Nunzio Barbera have collaborated to present a collection of strange and bizarre stories, combining both art and fiction, which they call “Gallery Of Horror”.

The goal of the work was to produce stories with the same surrealistic atmosphere of the old television show along with short stories containing similar ironic twists. In addition, many of the stories have Malafarina’s own special brand of descriptive gore. Each story was inspired by, and features one of, Nunzio Barbera’s works of art and was created with the hopes of taking the reader on a very special journey into the unknown and frightening world that is the mind of Thomas M. Malafarina.

Stories included:
• The Age Of Man
• The Wind Whispers Mary
• Girls Don’t Poop
• Talk2Me
• Call Him Maury
• Beyond The Mind’s Eye
• Remember When
• Lost
• In The Beginning There Was Me
• Status Quo
