As you know from the previous updates, the cover is the primary part of the process left to complete. I currently have $55.00 saved up with a budget of $100.00 in mind (and yes, you certainly can get an excellent cover for that amount of money if you know where to look). However, as student loans and various other expenses are putting a cramp on my plans, I figured I’d do a little fundraising with all you folks who actually follow this blog!
What I have available for sale are:
Three copies of my first book, Black Corners of a Blood-Red Room. The collection was published by Library of Horror Press in 2010 and is currently out of print. It contains 46 short stories (and a few flash pieces) of horror, occasionally blending with everything from fantasy worlds to science-fiction. These are $20.00 a pop ($5.00 of that goes toward shipping).
One copy of Shroud Magazine #6, containing my short story, “An Allure Forgotten.” Shroud always puts out a great product, and this issue is no exception. In addition to my story, there’s content from Rick Hautala (rest easy, buddy) and lots of other great talent in the genre. I’m selling the magazine for $10.00 (again, the extra goes toward shipping).
Additionally, I’m happy to sign any of these items by request. If you’re interested, just drop your e-mail address in the comments section and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
I may add more items to this list as things develop.
