JournalStone Publishing President, Christopher C. Payne has announced that JS has just purchased the acclaimed Horror News & Reviews Website, Hellnotes.com, from noted author and founder David B. Silva, who will also be joining the JS team as Senior News & Website Editor/Director.
Hellnotes has a fourteen (14) year history and tradition as one of the Horror Genre’s most respected and reliable sources of news and reviews related to the Horror Genre. JS President, Payne, vows that the high quality news and reviews and friendly atmosphere that founder David B. Silva fostered will continue. JS does hope to expand the site – while maintaining the tradition Hellnotes has fostered over many years. The acquisition of the website will allow for a substantial enhancement of the JS Newsletter in the coming months, which will henceforth be known as ‘JS Hellnotes’ as well as an increased focus on the JS forum.
“We at JournalStone want to thank David B. Silva for trusting us with his legacy and are doubly thrilled to have him join the JS team,” says Payne.

Additionally, Joseph Nassise (international bestselling author), Jonathan Maberry (<i>New York Times</i> bestselling author), and Benjamin Kane Ethridge (2010 Bram Stoker Award winner), have been added as JournalStone signed authors, complimenting Brett J. Talley and Anne C. Petty on a shared world anthology titled <i>Limbus</i>, to be released in the fall of 2012.
