Creeping Hemlock Press was founded in Gretna, Louisiana by the husband-and-wife creative duo R.J. and Julia Sevin (seh-VAN). As sometime writers, oftentime readers, they found themselves frustrated with the scarcity of generous-paying, atmospheric and bizarre short story anthologies. They took matters into their own hands in late 2004 when they began to accept submissions for their own anthology. Many months, one baby, two hurricanes, and one soggy home later, Corpse Blossoms was born to critical success and a nomination for the Horror Writers Association’s Bram Stoker award. As their homeless wanderings carried them to Texas and back, the Sevins also produced an original limited-edition novella by Tom Piccirilli, Frayed, to terrific reviews and enthusiastic reader sentiment.
The December 2007 release of Piccirilli's The Fever Kill brought them into an entire new league of publishers. Critically lauded and available in bookstores nationwide, this popular title has sold far beyond expectations.
Even before the disaster and reaction surrounding Katrina demonstrated its true meaning, charity was a pillar of Creeping Hemlock Press's philosophy and business model. Your purchase from Creeping Hemlock Press or any bookseller carrying our titles will help to benefit those in need.
Acclaimed publishers under the sumptuous cloak of night, R.J. and Julia are but mild-mannered citizens by day. R.J. makes monsters for the Mortuary, a local haunt. Julia is the art director for the Printer's Wholesale Group, a major New Orleans print brokerage.
