Night to Dawn Magazine & Books LLC


Night to Dawn 29 brings a unique take on the vampire theme; only now, I’ve brought mummies and zombies into the equation. Thomas Canfield can take credit for the mummy tale, “Skin Deep;” Margaret L. Carter has ushered fresh life to an ancient theme with “Raised from the Ashes.” Edward Ahern’s “The Foundling” adds his take on vampires with an infant who will grow and feed on humans. Landrum’s “The Mentor from the Dead” provides a school for the unspeakable. NTD 29 also features work by Rod Marsden, Chris Friend, Elizabeth Pierce, James Park, Todd Hanks, Marge Simon, Sandy DeLuca, Christopher Hivner, Allan Heller, Rajeev Bhargava, and other talented contributors.

Please explore Night to Dawn with the understanding that holy objects and garlic may not protect you, for the NTD vampire is no ordinary species. You might meet the blood drinker of yore, or a walking skeleton, or even a human vampire. Then there are the psychic vampires. Recently, NTD has been featuring werewolves and other monsters but always with the blood lust theme. Our goal is to showcase the work of writers who share a passion for the horror genre. By featuring upcoming artists and writers, we hope to bring new life to the world of the undead. NIGHT TO DAWN will offer tales written by Tom Johnson, Lee Clarke Zumpe, and other authors that will appeal to your SPINE!!

Elizabeth Pierce-Collins, the artist appearing in the latest issue of Night To Dawn, has agreed to sell her artwork for those visitors of that are interested!  Kindly contact her directly at 475 Chorro Creek Road, Morro Bay, Ca. 93442  for more information.

Lupo Mannaro by Sandy DeLuca – Middleport Harbor is a strange city, a place where the supernatural exists. There are dark fairies, elementals, undead … and werewolves–the lupo mannaro–that arrived in Middleport Harbor decades ago, on a ship where bloodshed and death occurred in a darkened hull, because a black curse followed it over the sea. The wolf women begin to die when their childbearing years have finished, and Ellery Bento is dying. Her daughter, Geneva, wants to make a heinous deal with a deadly shadow queen to save her. She’s warned not to go any further, but a street urchin named Rina has already set evil in motion. Will Geneva save her mother? Is Ellery fated to die alone? Or will the paranormal beings of Middleport Harbor save her when they perform a darkened requiem in tunnels beneath the city?


When Blood Reigns by Barbara Custer: Marked for death, Alexis accompanies her lover, Yeron, and four survivors of a zombie invasion on a search for the renegades who created a chemical that induces a zombie-like state. On the way, ravenous flesh-eaters attack Alexis’s team; one survivor turns on her. She realizes too late that the renegades have been tracking her every move. When officials capture her, she becomes deathly ill. Can DNA splicing save her? Will Yeron’s attempts at rescue jeopardize all their lives?

The October Frights Blog Hop ran October 1st through 10th. Hope you enjoy the blogs posted.

Does Geography Therapy Help Writer’s Block? (10/1/15)  Someone once suggested that the best therapy for any stress is an old-fashioned vacation. I’d planned a few days at Ocean City, NJ months ago. Lately, I found myself having a tough … read more.

An Intense Discussion on Italicizing Thoughts (10/3/15): One evening, I headed to a writers’ group meeting where of all things, we had a discussion on whether or not to italicize thoughts. Why are we talking about this, I wondered? My mind … read more.

Balloons and Branding (10/5/15): Jonathan Maberry, a wise author and mentor, once told me that the best way to get readers is not by pushing your book but by “branding” yourself. Perhaps you have a favorite shirt you might wear to signings. Perhaps everything … read more.

Personal Demons Revisited (10/7/2015): The other night, I had a visitor over my house and she’d asked me how I got to writing horror. I told her how it started with Dark Shadows and the Hammer films. Stephen King, among other authors, only fanned the flames, I said, ignoring the fact that my dance with horror began … read more.

  1. sounds like a fun one!

  2. Night to Dawn seems like a fun book!

  3. Oct. Frights Blog Hop: Thank you so much for offering such a generous giveaway. Both books are something I’d love.

    Mylar balloons: I think you have 27 balloons.

    Is there a way to subscribe to your blog so it goes to my email? My email address is: michelle_willms at yahoo dot com

    • We’ll see what the other folks guess. 🙂 That’s a great question about subscribing – I realized the blog doesn’t show any way to do that. I’ll try to fix that. Barbara of the Balloons.

  4. Your website design is so nice now and so much easier to navigate around x

  5. Night to Dawn 26 – Of the poems I liked Marc Shapiro’s Bad Food the best. Great imagery. In terms of art, nice take on the four horsemen by Denny Marshall on page 58. The short story Thunder Bay by Robin Wyatt Dunn I found rich in macabre symbolism. Glad to be part of this issue.

  6. Night to Dawn 24 Oct. 2013. Thanks for your inclusion of Brother, Can You Spare Some Blood? Hopefully it will go down well with readers. Strangely enough, it was my shot at a warped out vamp love story.

    The nastiest and therefore the best poem was Hanks’ Vampire Winter. Since I’m just getting out of winter I can relate. Spring hasn’t quite sprung in Sydney, Australia.

    The Infernal Buddha sounds pretty good. I haven’t read a Doc Savage novel in some time.

    Nice portrait of Poe on page 49 by Denny Marshall.

    The Steel Rose teaser was a good idea.

    Art work by Denny Marshall on page 77 is kinda freaked out but ultimately an interesting take on the vampire as demon or the demon with vampire tendencies.

  7. i noticed that Lee Clark Zumpe and Denny E. Marshall were each credited twice on the cover of #20? is this on purpose?

    • No, it was an oversight. That said, I think highly of Lee and Denny’s work. I’ve been blessed with great writers and illustrators.
