Book One of The Scary Tales
THAT RISEN SNOW: A Scary Tale of Snow White & Zombies
The angry young dwarf named Grouchy has long dreaded this day. His abusive father raised him to hate humans, yet when a troubled human girl named Snow sought sanctuary at the home for wayward young dwarfs, Grouchy fell in love with her. Snow now lies in cursed slumber. When a smitten Prince arrives to kiss her awake, Grouchy feels as though his world is about to end. He has no idea how right he is.
Snow wakes up, but she doesn’t wake up right.
Now a deranged zombie, Snow infects both the Prince and the dwarfs’ elder leader. That leaves Grouchy and the other young dwarfs to find a cure for her malicious curse. To do so, he must overcome his own rage, help his fellow dwarfs with their own inner demons, and confront the bigotry of the Prince’s soldier entourage. All the while, the zombie horde grows in numbers and ferocity. To make matters worse, dark magic lurks in the surrounding forest, where all is not as it seems. Against all odds, Grouchy must find a way to stop That Risen Snow . . .
The Scary Tales is the perfect series for lovers of fairy tales, fans of zombie horror, and anyone that enjoys an epic fantasy adventure.

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR ROB E. BOLEY
“Part delicious dream, part nightmare, That Risen Snow is an aberrant fairytale that is just as much a horror story. Boley has a knack for dark comedy and witty prose, and he blends it with a nearly-hardboiled voice uncharacteristic of (and therefore pleasantly unique in) dark fantasy fiction. It’s a story you’ll want to tear ass through but will equally want to slow down for, so you can savor the prose.”
—Brady Allen, author of Back Roads & Frontal Lobes
“In 1912, the Brothers Grimm published an old Geman fairy tale they titled Snow White. Little did they know that a guy named Rob Boley would come along a hundred years later to reveal the ‘true’ and adult story of Ms. White, or ‘Snow’ as she was known in real life… No one could have possibly foreseen what would become of Snow in the hands of a diabolical, maniacal imagination like Boley’s… Such a nice boy… with such a fevered mind. Read this with the lights on and a baseball bat or shotgun handy… you’re gonna be glad you did. This is a Snow White you ain’t gonna find in the middle school library… Get it, read it, and try to keep the screaming down.”
—Les Edgerton, author of Hooked, Just Like That, and The Bitch
“That Risen Snow and That Wicked Apple make a deliciously diabolical tale—part Walking Dead, part turned-on-its-ear fairy tale. Rob Boley strikes the perfect balance of depth, drama, and dark humor to keep readers devouring the pages and leave them hungering for more.
—Linda Gerber, author of the Death By Bikini Mysteries
