Hex Publishers, a New Local Press, Plans to Release a Dark, Twisted Anthology

Things are getting spooky in Erie, Colorado. That's where near-native Josh Viola, seventeen-time award-winning author of The Bane of Yoto, now lives. Viola found himself frustrated by the commercialization of publishing -- so frustrated, in fact, that he set out to change the way authors are treated, launching Hex Publishers, an Erie-based independent press dedicated to publishing mainstream-quality literature. With the help of co-founder and longtime Colorado resident and bookseller Dean Wyant, Hex has already announced that it will release a horror anthology, Nightmares Unhinged, this fall with a notable lineup of award-winning, bestselling authors.
