Lots of lovely Stokercon posts showing up on the social media feeds. We dearly wish we could have joined everyone, this year, but seeing all of you having a grand time has been very nice. Hopefully, in 2023, we will be able to get out and meet and greet folks.
And, in case you didn’t know, a certain QUEEN OF TEETH is up for one of those snazzy, spooky haunted-house-award thingies. In our hearts, the Queen has all ready won. Come Monday, regardless, we will be congratulating everyone!
CHROMOPHOBIA hardcover pre-orders are soon coming to a close. We will begin a daily countdown, starting June 1st. The book has done well, thus far, and we are hoping the countdown pushes a few more sales before we start focusing on the trade paperback release.
As promised, we will be taking a very unsentimental look at the production of such a book, the costs, the time and effort, and the overall sales. Despite our track record, we think it is important for folks to be reminded: we are a micro press, as indie as they come. One can only do so much of this work “for the love” and, at the end of the day, publishing is a business. One of the big deciding factors in our absence from Stokercon, this year? CHROMOPHOBIA cost a lot of money and a lot of time, and neither Don nor Nick have loads of either. Ah, the glitz and glamour of publishing!
Now, on to the weekend ahead!
As always, thanks for reading and for the support. We don’t exist without those two ingredients.
