PRESS RELEASE: Dabel Brothers to Adapt Two Novels from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Bestselling Dark-Hunter series

ATLANTA, GA—August 4, 2008: Dabel Brothers Publishing is proud to announce the manga-style adaptations of two Dark-Hunter novels by the #1 best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon, to be released in 2009.

The novels, “Night Pleasures” and “Night Embrace”, are the first and second books in

Kenyon's work has a worldwide following, with sales of more than fourteen million books in twenty-nine countries.

The story will be adapted by writer
Joshua Hale Fialkov, known for his unique storytelling style on titles like Cyblade and the upcoming Afro Samurai Manga.

Production services are being provided by Glass House Graphics.

Dabel Brothers Publishing,” says Dabel Brothers President Ernst Dabel, “It's a chance to create the kind of visual adventure that we do best while connecting with Sherrilyn's millions of fans throughout the world.

I tried to read one of Kenyon's books once and couldn't make it through the first chapter. I hope this is better.
