Rooster Republic looks at the already bloated corpse of 2019 and pokes it with a stick

I won’t bury the lede, folks:

ROOSTER ISN’T RELEASING A NEW TITLE IN 2019.

And… we are just fine with that!

This is by design. We already have titles lined up for 2020, including Sara Tantlinger’s all-women horror anthology, Not All Monsters, and Andrew James Stone’s new book, The Ultimate Dinosaur Dance Off. We’ve fielded queries from authors interested in placing titles as far out as 2021. And, going forward (I’ve mentioned this previously), Rooster Republic, et al, will release no more than four books in a calendar year. This will give us plenty of time to devote to each individual title, as well as keep us from losing our collective minds.

Not All Monsters… UPDATE

cropped-new-tentacle

As you may have heard, Strangehouse Books is working on quite the anthology for 2020.

Right now, we are looking at an October 2020 release for Not All Monsters. We wanted to make sure we set out the date far ahead, so as to give us enough time to really prepare, thoroughly edit, and give ourselves a wide window with which to execute the production. The book will probably end up at 90-100K words. We wanted to be sure to have lots of space for lots of voices. And let me tell you, it is a good thing we’ve approached this anthology the way we have.

Submissions have been open less than two weeks and we’ve gotten so, so many stories. The response to our call has been overwhelming, to say the least, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Reading through will take considerable time, but authors should expect to hear from us starting in February.

Submissions will remain open until we’re completely satisfied with our selections and the 90-100K word count has been met.

We look forward to reading your work!
