International publisher Samhain Publishing today announced that author Damien Walters Grintalis, who has been receiving enthusiastic reader and critical response for her contemporary horror debut, INK, will be an attending author at the Baltimore Tattoo Arts Convention, April 5-7, 2013. INK is the tale of a young man whose new, brilliantly realistic griffin tattoo takes on a terrifying life of its own.
According to Samhain Horror Executive Editor Don D'Auria, Grintalis' work has created its own indelible impression. "I knew INK was a perfect fit for Samhain Horror the moment I read the opening pages," D'Auria explains. "Damien's fresh voice, exceptional writing and compelling narrative make for a horror experience you won't forget anytime soon."
Already an acclaimed short story writer, Grintalis has been receiving other accolades for her debut novel as well. According to a recent review in The Horror Fiction Review, "Debut novels should not be this good. Keep an eye on Damien Walters Grintalis. She's starting off strong and probably headed right for the top!" and The Bag and The Crow review site listed INK on its Favorite Reads of 2012.
What's next for Grintalis? Additional INK. The Maryland-based author is applying to receive her own griffin tattoo on an upcoming edition of a tattoo reality show.

"Damien Walters Grintalis writes with a distinct voice, yet one which contains whispers of Sturgeon, Bradbury and Ellison."
-Jamie Todd Rubin, Writer & SF Signal Contributor
"As soon as I read this one, I immediately wished that I thought of the idea - but if I had, I doubt I could have executed it half so well."
-Matthew Bennardo, co-editor of Machine of Death on "Like Origami in Water"
