Livermore, California (EastBayDaily) — Shadowfall Publications today announced the release of the eBook edition of the Bram Stoker Award Winning novel The Gentling Box. The eBook is now available at and other online booksellers. “The Gentling Box debuted to universal praise from critics and fans alike,” said Brent Chapman, Founder and President of Shadowfall. “We think the eBook version and video trailer will build a whole new fan base for this incredible book and its author Lisa Mannetti.”

Shadowfall, a new imprint specializing in horror, mystery, science fiction, romance and other engaging works of fiction, also acquired the print rights to The Gentling Box and is making the new trade paperback edition available today as well. “This trade edition is incredibly special,” said Chapman. “Heather Graham, the New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Night wrote an all new introduction and we had the cover designed by Glenn Chadbourne, who as most fans know collaborated on Stephen King’s graphic short story collections The Secretary of Dreams Volumes One and Two. This could become a true collector’s item.”

The Gentling Box is Lisa Mannetti’s debut novel. It won the Bram Stoker Award presented by the Horror Writer’s Association for superior achievement in the genre and has gained widespread acclaim from reviewers and fellow authors. Bram Stoker winner Hank Schwaeble noted, “The Gentling Box transports you to another time and place with the same kind of dark magic that pervades the 19th-century world she’s recreated.”

Mannetti, a New Yorker, is a frequent contributor of short stories to genre magazines and anthologies. She and Chapman met at a writer’s conference earlier this year. “As an author you sometimes just instantly click with a publisher,” said Mannetti. “When I met the Shadowfall team I truly felt I had found a home for my fiction.” As a publisher, Chapman places a particular emphasis on widening the audiences for authors and their works, and The Gentling Box is no exception. “It’s all about good marketing, socializing a title through the Internet, producing trailers that capture the essence of the book, and getting the word out.”

The Gentling Box, Shadowfall Publications, in eBook formats and trade paperback. Trade paper back edition, 320 pp: eBook: $2.99 for a limited time. Press Contact
