DarkFuse Founder Discusses Success In Publishing + Another Milestone

DarkFuse founder Shane Staley has posted an article on his personal creative website, Dismantled Muse, about DarkFuse’s 100th title as well as sharing his blueprint for success in both life and publishing.


As most of us know in the DarkFuse community, Staley has remained mostly out of the public eye for the past several years as his focus was on building the company.  So this introspective article may be of interest and relevance to both DarkFuse readers and others interested in the business of publishing.

TORMENTOR Release Day!

DarkFuse is happy to report that Tormentor by William Meikle is now available at Amazon for Kindle.


This story isn’t really about me. 

On the Isle of Skye, near the community of Dunvegan, sits a rustic old one-bedroom home, waiting for a new tenant. It seems like the perfect opportunity for Jim Greenwood to escape the hectic London city life—a place to move on from tragedy.

This is the story of a house. 

As he tries to settle into country life, his is tormented by mysterious soot marks left throughout the house while he sleeps, cryptic e-mails from unknown senders, and hundreds of hand-drawn stick-figure drawings etched in a perfect pattern on the cottage’s cellar walls.

Stay. Beth needs you.

Jim begins losing control, drinking excessively, shaking to an uncontrollable beat in his head, trying to decipher what may or may not be a code—or a warning.

No limbs, no limbs, no head, no head, left arm gone, left leg gone, no legs, no head. 

The door is open, and something is coming through. It’s just a matter of when—and what.

Preorder April Novels by Meikle + Leverone

DarkFuse will release 2 new novels in April of 2015 and both are now available to preorder for Kindle…



 It starts with a strange glowing fog that arrives at the height of a snowstorm.

A terror from the past has returned, bringing with it death and destruction that threatens to overrun the town. The old stories tell of a post-war experiment gone wrong, one that opened the way for the fog—or whatever was behind it—to begin its reign of terror.

A small team of workmen are the last hope to keep their town alive through the long, storm-filled night. But the many horrors that await them are beyond anyone’s worst nightmares.

Six months ago, Caitlyn Connelly’s search for her family brought her face to face with Milo Cain, the monster known as “Mr. Midnight,” a depraved killer wandering the streets of Boston.

Though disfigured in a brutal attack, Cait managed to defend herself and in so doing put Milo in a prison hospital bed, where he now lies comatose and paralyzed, alone and forgotten.

But not helpless.

Unbeknownst to doctors, prison officials or anyone else, Milo Cain is actually awake and aware, and the brain injury suffered at the hands of his twin sister has altered him. He is now more deadly and his hunting grounds have expanded.

Now, armed with shocking abilities and the perfect alibi, Mr. Midnight is back, and determined to even the score with the one person he hates more than anyone else in the world.

His sister.

Caitlyn thought the worst was over. It has only just begun.

Kindle Sale! THE NEW FLESH by Keith Deininger Only 99 Cents

To celebrate the release of Keith Deininger’s latest novella, The Hallow, DarkFuse is running a special through Amazon to get his debut novel for only $0.99.  For a limited time only!

The New Flesh

When Jake, a shy fourth grader, starts a fire in the woods behind his school that gets away from him, he’s punished and forgiven. But his life is never the same. Three years after the incident, the dreams begin. Dreams of flames and a strange creature Jake calls The Melting Man. Waiting and watching with an insidious grin, it lures him deeper and deeper into his darkest fears, and closer to an otherworld of fire and torment. And then, Jake begins to see The Melting Man wherever he goes.

Come with me, Jake…Come and see…

As his dreams bleed into waking life, Jake realizes he’s being dragged toward a very real apocalypse, and that The Melting Man’s powers are growing stronger. Asleep, awake, or trapped between the two, Jake must fight to understand not only who and what The Melting Man is and what the dreams mean, but how this creature and Jake’s mysterious family legacy ties into a disturbing, violent and enigmatic film associated with his father, a failed screenwriter.

But there may be no way to stop what has already begun…because this is a new nightmare…a new terror…a new Flesh…

The New Flesh, the debut novel of horror, madness and suspense from Keith Deininger.

“A dark and sinister debut.  Deininger’s first novel will have you reading straight through the night.” —Ronald Malfi, author of Floating Staircase and Snow

“…effortlessly carries the reader along with the flow of the narrative, offering up turns of phrase that are elegantly apt and freshly minted descriptions that bring the story to life on the page. There’s a cinematic feel to the book; its tutelary spirits are Barker and Lynch, Carpenter and Cronenberg.” —Black Static

“An exciting, well written thriller that will have readers up late into the night.” —Cayocosta72 Book Reviews

“Some parts were brutal and some parts scary but the whole was a mind blowing horror that came together in a very interesting climax…” —Wistfulskimmie’s Book Reviews

“I liked this book… I got a real Stephen King vibe from it in a way—which is a good thing. I’m a big Stephen King fan. Jake is a a compelling, young narrator…” —Indie Book Drop

THE HALLOW by Keith Deininger Released

Just released today for Kindle!

The Hallow

When James and his roommate Vance stumble home drunk, they find a young woman lying on their couch. Without a word, she walks into James’s room, lies down on his bed, and dies. After that, nothing is the same.

The streets, James discovers on his walks to and from the grocery store, are forlorn and empty.

His roommate, despite his loud and reckless nature, begins spending an unusual amount of time in his room with the door locked, strange shuffling sounds coming from within.

And his new girlfriend, the cute and free-spirited Allie, may know more about what’s happening than she lets on, and she’s about to take James on a surreal, drug-fueled journey to see the Hallow…and the horrors it has unleashed…
