Sallow Bend coming soon from Cemetery Dance Publications

Feb 21, 2022

I’m very excited to announce that my first full-length novel since 2018’s Devouring Dark is coming soon and from a dream publisher. I’ve long loved the kind of books and authors that Cemetery Dance Publications carry and it’s a trip to now consider myself among them. My small town folk horror novel, Sallow Bend, will be coming from CD in paperback and ebook sometime towards the end of this year or early next. Final details still to be arranged, but the news is good! I can’t wait for people to read this one, I really think it’s one of the best things I’ve written to date.

Here’s the current blurb, which may change but gets the essence of the book across:

When two teenagers go missing from the small, rural town of Sallow Bend, the residents come together to search for them. Little do they suspect that finding the wayward girls will be the start of their problems. An ancient evil is rising, and only one man seems to realize that everyone is in danger and this is not the first time it’s happened. With the carnival in town, people want to have a good time, but for many, this will be the worst time of their lives. SALLOW BEND – a tense and frightening folk horror novel from Alan Baxter and Cemetery Dance Publications.
