FunDead Publications announces release of new anthology

Night in New Orleans, available on April 1, 2017

New Orleans– Night in New Orleans: Bizarre Beats from the Big Easy is a collection of spooky short stories set in The Crescent City.  The book features nineteen authors, and includes writers both near and far.  The book is available to the public on April 1, 2017, and was produced by Indie Publisher, FunDead Publications of Salem, MA.  The publishers view New Orleans as a kind of sister city to their hometown of Salem, in the ways of history and magic, and thought it only appropriate to create a collection based around NOLA.   The anthology offers dark tales that tourists and locals of The Big Easy will appreciate. ‘Night in New Orleans’ is an excellent souvenir for visitors to The Crescent City to bring home with them.

About Night in New Orleans:          

“There is but one New Orleans,” they say, bustling with joie de vivre, celebrating non-stop, but step closer, into the clinging, honeysuckle-scented air, and you will find a darker version of the Big Easy, depending on what you believe is true. Tales of vampires, werewolves, curses, and mysterious half-human bayou creatures are pervasive in New Orleans’ culture. Visitors may pass them off as folk tales and superstitions, but the locals know to never go into the deep swamp alone or into the cemetery at night. Tale or truth? In New Orleans, the line between them bleeds.

Release Events:

The Night in New Orleans: Bizarre Beats from the Big Easy launch event will take place at Cabot St. Books and Cards, 272 Cabot St, Beverly, MA 01915 on March 31, 2017 from 6pm-8pm. Media are invited to attend, as well as the general public. The FunDead Editors will be in attendance, and will be happy to sign your purchased copy.

About Fundead Publications:

FunDead Publications is located in Salem, Massachusetts, a city which has provided endless inspiration to writers of every genre for hundreds of years. Established by Amber Newberry in late 2015, FunDead released its first collection, Shadows in Salem, in October of 2016. Since then, FunDead has published a Christmas anthology, O Horrid Night, and regularly posts new writers on their blog. Devoted to providing a space for scribblers new to publishing, as well as veterans of independent and traditional means, Amber Newberry hopes to keep the age old art of story-telling alive and well in The Witch City.

With a love for horror, gothic fiction, and all things macabre, FunDead brings a little joy to those who prefer the dark side. Night in New Orleans is the first print release of 2017, to be followed by a Salem-inspired poetry collection in the summer, and a Halloween-themed sister anthology to Shadows in Salem for the fall.
