Evileye Books Signs Horror and Fantasy Writer John Urbancik to Multi-Book
Chicago, IL, January 11, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Adding to the string of licensing deals struck in 2009,
Evileye Books, announces the signing of horror and fantasy writer, John Urbancik, to a multi-year book
deal to develop a new supernatural noir fiction series titled "DarkWalker". The first volume of the series
is a novel debuting in May.
Under the terms of the agreement, Mr. Urbancik will license all rights to the DarkWalker intellectual
property to Evileye Books' parent company, Pulp+Pixel Entertainment Co., over a number of years.
Evileye Books will publish and market the books in English domestically, while Pulp+Pixel will develop
all other rights with interested partners, outside agents, publishers and production houses.
"I'm pleased to be part of the Evileye Books group of writers," said Mr. Urbancik. "Their approach is
fresh, comprehensive and absolutely right for the new age of publishing we live in."
Book one, a novel titled "DarkWalker", follows the principle character of the series, Jack Harlow. He
lives in the shadows of this world and other realms, watching and recording without interfering. But when
he is forced to protect the woman he loves, Harlow breaks the rules that give him immunity and becomes
open game for the creatures that once not dared go after a DarkWalker.
"I wanted to create a character who tries to engage in life, who keeps his head down and plays by the
rules, but suddenly finds himself pinned against the system and his own desires." said Mr. Urbancik.
Evileye Books expects to publish one novel per year, as well as adapt the stories to other formats, most
notably graphic novels.
"DarkWalker is a great platform to explore in different formats," said A.N. Ommus, Editorial Director of
Evileye Books. "Graphic novels let us tell the stories in a visual way that expands our sense of the
DarkWalker universe John is building."
