Note from the Publisher—April, 2014

Here we are deep in the heart of April, 2014, and there are many exciting things afoot.

In the last few months we have released two new titles, The Hungry 5: All Hell Breaks Loose and All The Devils, both by the writing team of Steven W. Booth and Harry Shannon. Both titles are featured above.

Next, we have signed on two new titles since February. One is The Case of the Outcast Oracle by Chris Abbey, which is something we are calling "Barbarian Noir" (though, for you sticklers, it's really hard boiled). Genius Books will release Chris's book sometime in late 2014 or early 2015.

The second title is The Toughest Prison of All, a memoir by Floyd Forsberg, a career bank robber who pulled off the biggest bank robbery in history—over a million dollars stolen in broad daylight. Forsberg gives his insight into the penal system and the ups and downs of bank robbery. The Toughest Prison of All is scheduled for release in 2015.

And two of our earlier releases will be receiving facelifts. I'm Not Guilty: The Case of Ted Bundy by Dr. Al Carlisle will be reissued as a second edition with a new preface, a new organization, and a thorough edit. I'm Not Guilty is scheduled for rerelease on June 13, 2014.

The Thirteenth Child by David Dean will be receiving a new cover and a polish to the prose that has made the story start stronger than ever. The Thirteenth Child will rerelease on July 18, 2014.

Finally—at least for now—Al Carlisle is working hard on several new titles in the Development of the Violent Mind series. Subjects include serial killers Westley Allan Dodd, Keith Jesperson (The Happy Face Killer), Arthur Gary Bishop, and bank robber Floyd Forsberg. Unlike I'm Not Guilty, the newer books in the series will all be 100% factual with actual interviews with the subjects in their own words. We may expect to see one or more of these titles release in 2014.

It's going to be a busy year.
