"This raw exploration of the human psyche and relationships will bury deep beneath your skin. Murray takes readers through lyrically dark stories of labyrinths, rituals, sacrifices, and secrets.

THE CATHEDDRAL DIMENSION

BY JOSEPH PESAVENTO

Palisades Playland is set for demolition, but that won’t stop Dylan from seeing it one last time. Planning a break-in with his friends Clyde, Ariel, and girlfriend Leah, they explore the long-abandoned park to reminisce about their memories in the once lively amusement park.


Things quickly go bizarre once they discover the vast homeless population speaking of a prophecy set to occur that same night.Dylan starts to lose control as a conflict with his girlfriend escalates, the group splits up, and frightening discoveries emerge.


The night grows bleak as terror surrounds them, but something bigger than them all lies deep beneath the forgotten park…

DARK LIT SETS SAIL WITH 8 PIRATE ADVENTURES!

DARKLIT PRESS SETS SAIL ON KICKSTARTER WITH DARKLIT SAILS: A GROUNDBREAKING PIRATE HORROR ADVENTURE SERIES BY MARGINALIZED AUTHORS


DarkLit Press proudly announces the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for DarkLit Sails, an exhilarating series of pirate horror adventures written by underrepresented and marginalized authors. This daring voyage into the world of dark literature promises to captivate readers with spine-tingling tales of high-seas terror, all while championing diverse voices in the literary landscape.

Underrepresented and marginalized authors have long struggled to find their place in mainstream publishing, but DarkLit Sails aims to change that narrative. By providing a platform for these talented storytellers, DarkLit Press is committed to amplifying voices that have been historically overlooked in the industry.

"We believe that everyone deserves to see themselves reflected in the stories they read," says Andrew Robert, Founder and CEO of DarkLit Press. "With DarkLit Sails, we're not only offering thrilling adventures but also fostering inclusivity and representation in literature."
