Rooster Republic’s Future (not scary)

Well, it looks like we have some books coming your way. Let’s talk about ‘em!

The next release coming down the pipe is Christoph Paul’s eagerly-awaited poetry collection, At Least I Get You < In My Art. That’ll drop right at the end of July. It’s the first of two poetry releases we have planned for 2018.

Next, we have Matthew Stephen Sunrich’s short collection, Someone Shot The Hip, Young Conductor. This one is a turn towards the humorous and the absurd. It should go live in August.

September has two releases planned: Charles Austin Muir’s Bodybuilding Spider Rangers and Other Stories; Sara Tantlinger’s The Devil’s Dreamland, poetry inspired by H.H. Holmes.

And that leaves us with October. Michael Allen Rose’s Rock & Roll Death Patrol should go live in our spookiest month. The novel is a tongue-in-cheek, comic-book-style adventure that reimagines groups like the Justice League and/or Avengers as literal rock ‘n’ roll stars; takes the idea of the rock “supergroup” to another level.

And then there is The Full Howie.

All Hail The House Gods should be on your radar, says LitReactor

One of Rooster Republic’s summer titles just got a little shout out over at LitReactor (courtesy of Gabino Iglesias) and we couldn’t be happier. Andrew James Stone’s sophomore effort, All Hail The House Gods, is an anxious little page-turner and a very interesting spin on the dystopian science-fiction narrative.

For her follow-up collection, Tantlinger has chosen none other than notorious killer HH Holmes as her inspiration. Here’s a look at the (WIP) cover art:

New work from John Bruni coming in May 2018!

This will be a quick post. Just a taste . . . of Bruni.

John Bruni. His newest title, Blood, should be live in May. And it’s a helluva book. A little bit crime, a little bit demons, and a fine smattering of violence. But let’s take a look at that cover, shall we? This one comes courtesy of the very, very talented Matt Andrew.

Just look at this beast . . .

Sorry, Wrong Country: Author Q&A

Rooster Republic wanted to try something a little different, so when Konstantine Paradias approached us with Sorry, Wrong Country, his non-fiction memoir about life in modern Greece, it was a total no-brainer to pick it up and add it to this year’s roster of titles.

And what a book! We love this book. And we think you’ll love it, too. It’s already gotten a pretty great review from the folks over at Geek Nerdery. Here’s a little pull quote (click the quote to see the full review at their site):

“It was an absolute blast getting to know these strangers in their quick vignettes, and with what little time the reader gets to spend with each of them, Paradias deftly paints and precise picture of who these people are and where they place in the tapestry of human existence.”

Konstantine was a good sport and to help kick off this new release, we put a whole bunch of questions to him and got a whole bunch of answers (including his pizza crust preference) in return. Read on!
