Bestiary Production Update #1

Welcome to the first update on the new book. Here’s how the land lies so far:

-All the formatting and editing on the book is already done (the latter by the talented Felicia Sullivan).

-I’ve been running the book’s back cover description by some of my peers. It’s nearly done, but I may run it by one more beta tester first.

-The book has already been sent to a number of authors for blurbs/endorsements. However, I do need to touch base with them tomorrow to see how close they are to finishing up. I’ll share the blurbs with you as they come in.

-The cover art is the one really sticky part at the moment. As Bestiary is a series, I want all the covers to be done by the same person, in a similar style, so it’s a big decision. That said, I am going to finish sorting through prospects this week and settle on someone if possible.

That’s it for now, folks. I’ll fill you in on any new developments next Tuesday.

About prutigli

Patrick Rutigliano grew up on a steady diet of comic books and horror movies. Making his first sale to Permuted press in 2007, he has since placed stories with several publications in addition to his first collection, Black Corners of a Blood-Red Room. The Untimely Deaths of Daryl Handy is his first independent release. During his off time, Patrick can usually be found attempting to recreate foreign cuisine, sacrificing cardboard to his cats, and having spirited debates with his wife over the failings of Disney villains.
