We created Creative Prose Publishing (CPP) to fill a void in the publishing world. Novels focusing on erotica or with graphic sex and language are easy enough to find, so much so that finding a clean novel can be a challenge. At CPP we hope to change that.
Our company focuses on all genres of clean fiction from middle grade through adult. We are open to contemporary, fantasy (high or low), dystopian, historical, romance; basically anything except graphic novels, as long as it is clean. By “clean” we mean free of an overuse of crass language (some mild language is okay in YA and adult), overtly graphic violence (violence that pertains to the story is fine as long as it isn’t extremely graphic), or blatant and/or graphic sex—think: fade to black/behind closed doors.
Please note: We do not believe in censorship in any form. Our company goal is to promote authors who choose to write clean fiction.

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Screams in the Night is the perfect book for Halloween. It consists of 7 short yet creepy stories. I started reading the smaller stories first, which are at the end of the book, and I found them a bit lacking...in what I am not so sure. The thing is I love short stories but maybe these were a bit too short for me. Then I read the last story in the book, which was the most creepy on for me: Watched. It's about a girl that is being watched by a green eyed monster everytime she wants to sleep. The story really kept me on edge, especially since I read right before going to sleep. From the shorter stories this was my favorite one.
Then I turned back at the beginning of the book where the two bigger stories are. Let me tell you those two stories were the reason why this collection got 4 stars. They were amazing. So I am going to give each a little review.
A Tale of Two Cemeteries by Maren Dille: This is a funny story of two cemeteries which are run by ghosts. Once a week each cemetery will put on a show, trying to scare people and earn ghost credit. This was a very funny story. The two cemetery owners fighting with each other and then the ghost of Justin Feeber, a pop star, ended up at one of the cemeteries.
Our Own Worst Enemies by Jamie Canosa: This one was also one of my favorite stories in the book. Cal and Josh are fighting to survive in a world where zombies made their appearance a few months back. One day they learn about an Enclave not so far away from them and decide to go after it. This was a great action story and also very heart warming and heart breaking at the same time.
Now, both of those stories could have been a full book and they'd be amazing. So if you are looking for a scary read, or 7, during October this is a great book.
