March 22, 2014 - PRLog -- Dark Continents Publishing is thrilled to announce the release of the new YA horror/mystery novel by the award-winning author, Brian Katcher. Dark Continents president David Youngquist and Brian Katcher met in 2011 at Archon, an industry event which encompasses all genres of writing and film. One of DCP’s editors sat in on a panel in which Katcher was the speaker. She then introduced the two after the panel ended. They hit it off, and as they talked, Katcher said he would send in a manuscript during DCP’s open submission period. From this promise, comes a new step for Dark Continents Publishing, and a chance for Katcher fans to get their hands on a great new book by their favorite author.

“I completely fell in love with this book as soon as I looked at the files,” David said. “I knew I wanted this book before I even finished reading it, so I had to jump on it before someone else snapped it up.”

Everyone Dies in the End tells the story of driven high school student, Sherman Andrews. At 17 Sherman is accepted into the Missouri Scholars Academy, a summer college program for the academically oriented students in the state. In Sherman’s case, he has a 10 year program to become a reporter and leave behind his stagnant life  with his low-brow, plumber father and his absent mother.

While conducting project research for the program, Sherman encounters photos and news stories from 1935 detailing the murder or disappearance of four men. When he survives a determined assassination attempt, Sherman quickly realizes he has poked his nose into something people want to keep quiet.

At this point Sherman has to decide whether to continue and take the next step in being the reporter he dreams of being, or back out and play it safe. The only people who can help him now are Charlie, the cute, chubby student librarian at the Historical Society, and new acquaintance Denton, who just happens to currently be confined to a psychiatric hospital.

Everyone Dies in the End is the flagship book of Dark Continents Publishing’s new Young Adult line of novels. It joins Katcher’s previous books published by Delacorte: Playing with Matches, which won the 2010-2011 North Carolina Young Adult Book Award and was listed on the American Library Association’s 2009 list of Best Books for Young Adults as well as Almost Perfect which was the Winner of the 2011 Stonewall Children’s and Young Adult Literature Award. It was also listed by the American Library Association as one of the Best Books for Young Adults in 2010, and it is one of YALSA’s 2014 Best Books for the College Bound.

Everyone Dies in the End is available as a trade paperback, and in many electronic platforms, including Kindle, Nook, and Kobo. The book can be ordered from the publishers' website,, from Amazon, or from any bookstore.
