FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Craig Clevenger, Stephen Graham Jones Headline Army Of Indie Lit Writers For Noir Story Collection
North Hollywood, CA – 6/28/2011
– The Velvet, an online incubator for future literary writers, have come together to publish WARMED AND BOUND, a story collection that brings “Velvet Noir” to the masses. On July 22nd, the result of this months-long outing will be available in paperback and eBook form with major retailers.

From critically-acclaimed authors Craig Clevenger (The Contortionist’s Handbook) and Stephen Graham Jones (Demon Theory) to indie lit heavyweights Matt Bell (How They Were Found) and Jeremy Robert Johnson (Extinction Journals), this collection brings the best in established and up-and-coming talent to explore “scary love stories” and “nostalgic thrillers” that will grip and never let go.

Says Steve Erickson, author of Our Ecstatic Days: “The writers of the Velvet are contemporary fiction’s most effective and least self-conscious aesthetic guerrillas.” From the twisted parent in Caleb J. Ross’ “Click-Clack,” to Bradley Sands’ bizzaro “Soccer Moms And Pro Wrestler Dads,” this collection can only be called “Velvet Noir,” distinctly familiar and yet completely indescribable.

From publisher Logan Rapp: “Velvet Noir is the comfortable danger of a love that may come back to completely obliterate you. WARMED AND BOUND distills this feeling perfectly.”
