What Even Is The Future? And will there be pre-orders?

Uncertainty looms large. We had plans, big changes we wanted to implement, but most of those plans have been, at the very least, put on hold. The exceptions being the books we planned on releasing in 2020. Those are still happening, regardless. And we keep pushing the boundaries of our freelance production work, though we’ve shelved some of the more expensive ideas until we see how the summer and fall play out, financially. Luckily, we are adaptable and only answerable to ourselves, so most of these setbacks are only perceptible to us and only aggravate us.

Onwards, then, and upwards.

Freddy Vs Jason (Kinda) Fan Art

My business partner and good pal Nicholas Day (author of Grind Your Bones To Dust) suggested that maybe I should try out some horror fan art. I’d been talking about getting back to more painting since a lot of my work tends to involve graphic design or composites, and I’ve had an itch to return back to the basics to sharpen some skills.

So he sends me a sketch of Freddy Krueger (Nick is also quite the artist himself) and now here we are.

The version on the right was the original finished copy but I couldn’t stop dicking with it. And since this wasn’t for a commercial project, I mean why not dick with it?

I still can’t decide which one I like better. But still, I couldn’t stop myself from doing a minimal color palette.

So we moved onto Jason Voorhees.

As you can see on the right, I have a sort of love affair with black, red, and white. Looking through our catalog of premade covers, you’ll probably see quite a few of them near that color scheme. I have to consciously stop myself and change direction on nearly everything I do because I love that aesthetic. I really, really like it. I like it a lot.

Minimalist pieces, duo-tones, and monochrome really speaks to me, that’s my jam, my bread and butter, but that’s exactly why I wanted to get back into painting, to try and break that habit and expand things a bit.

At the moment, I’m pretty pleased as to how they turned out and we’ve had some requests for prints but we’ll have to discuss that. For now, enjoy the fan art and feel free to contact us at roosterrepublicpress@gmail.com if you’d like something custom, be it for a book cover or any old thing you might want to hang in your house. Also, check out our Design Services HERE and scroll through to see how we can help with your projects. There are quite a few premades available right now, and we are always open to commissions.

Post-Stoker Roundup and a look at the TOC for Not All Monsters!

Well, the last couple years have seen a fair amount of ups and downs, but something mighty impressive will have to happen to surpass the thrill of seeing Sara Tantlinger win a Stoker Award for her book of poetry, The Devil’s Dreamland. You can read Sara’s own re-cap HERE at her website.

Just… holy smokes. There were tears and hugs and adult beverages. So many beverages.

DD Stoker

The award, if you’ve never seen one in person, is heavy enough to double as a weapon, should the need arise. And it has a little functioning door that opens to a very pretty and very polished plaque that names the award, the name of the work awarded, and the author. Very fun. Appropriately macabre, given the subject matter.

Devil’s, Acquisitions, Bizarro Pulp Press, and the erotic imprint that was… (RIP New Kink)

Allow us to address this article’s headline in reverse order.

New Kink Books started out as a promising imprint, and for a solid year-plus the naughty line of titles performed as well as any sales we had through Rooster Republic or Strangehouse Books. There were even quarters when sales from New Kink exceeded the more traditional lines. But now it is largely unresponsive. We poked it with the best and biggest stick we could find. Call the time, doc! And grab a body bag…

New Kink Books is a dead imprint.
