If this were 1940's Chicago, and you wanted to say something was doing so well like it just took off running, you'd say: "That thing's got legs!"
Judging by how well it's doing, David Owain Hughes's crime thriller, South By Southwest Wales, has got serious legs. As of September 8th, it's been declared one of the "best reads of 2018 (so far)" by the book review website, Book Reviews and More by Bookworm 1977.

The Slant Six Makes The 2017 RPLA Semi-Finals!
Underground Book Reviews Takes A Ride With Slant Six!
It's only been a year since we launched Shadows And Teeth, but the book series is advancing by leaps and bounds. And with each volume, we reach higher yet. Case in point: volume three is in the running for several major industry awards:
Shadows And Teeth 3 features a star-studded roster of international horror talent: the UK's legendary Guy N. Smith, Adam Millard, Nicholas Paschall, and many more. The competition will be fierce, but S&T3 is a strong contender, and we're certain that it can go the distance. Watch this space!
Critics and readers agree, Shadows And Teeth is a rockin' good horror series. With seven accolades since April of 2016, it has become our most-awarded line of books. Looks like it's time to expand the trophy rack!
The series, curated by R. Perez de Pereda, now boasts three volumes containing thirty stories by such horror luminaries as the UK's legendary Guy N. Smith; the Croatian Queen of Horror Viktoria Faust; the prodigious and wildly popular Adam Millard; up and coming master of horror Nicholas Paschall of San Antonio, Texas; fantasy novelist Antonio Simon, Jr. of Miami, Florida; thriller writer Ken Pelham; and many more.
Bring home the horror - each of our volumes is available in paperback, ebook, special edition hardbound, and audiobook narrated by the talented Wyatt S. Gray.
Medals were awarded at the annual FAPA President’s Book Awards Banquet held this year at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace in the Disney Springs Area of Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
“We are proud to announce this year’s winners who truly embody the excellence this award was created to celebrate. We had a record number of entries this year. Competition was stiff! We salute all of our winners for their fine work,” said FAPA’s President, Terri Gerrell.

About Darkwater Syndicate
Darkwater Syndicate is the publishing company with a defense contractor's name, and that sums up their approach to books: they refuse to be mainstream, and are not afraid to push boundaries or buck trends on their mission to promote uncommonly good reading. Founded in 2008, Darkwater began as an outlet for short stories. The company really took off in 2014 following the rampant success of The Gullwing Odyssey, its first full-length novel to hit #5 on Amazon's best-sellers list. Thereafter, the indie press has released between one and three titles a year. Ever one to punch above its weight, between January and July of 2017 the company released ten new titles by authors at home and abroad, making this its most ambitious year yet. They are headquartered in Miami Lakes, Florida.
Looks like it's time to expand the trophy shelf - Shadows & Teeth, Vol. 2 is taking home another medal. The Florida Authors & Publishers Association has just announced that S&T2 will be the recipient of the President's Award medal, and we are honored and humbled by this accolade. We wish to convey our sincerest gratitude to the contributing authors who made S&T2 the nightmare-inducing fear-fest that it is.
With this latest win, S&T2 in particular has earned three accolades (1st place in horror, finalist in anthologies, International Book Awards 2017; FAPA President's Award 2017 medalist). The series as a whole has garnered six total honors since it began in 2016.
DLS Reviews, a premier horror review website in the UK, has released a brilliant review of our horror anthology, Shadows And Teeth, Volume Two. Here's an excerpt:
"You thought your worst nightmares were scary–you might want to think again after reading this... This sort of calibre of blood-chilling horror is what truly makes anthologies like this."
