Not a whole lot to update for today, but we did want to show off the new card stock for our Rooster Republic bookmarks. Earlier this year, we showed off a prototype bookmark on a solid black card stock, but we opted for something a little flashier, with a nice grain that really captures direct light. Here you go:
(apologies for less-than-stellar photos, but the office is in the middle of a move and there’s simply not too many good places to take pics right now!)
UPDATE: STANDARD EDITIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER TILL JUNE 30TH
DELUXE NUMBERED EDITION IS SOLD OUT
Monday, March 1st! And, as promised, you can now pre-order your hardcover editions of Hailey Piper’s QUEEN OF TEETH. Info on how to pre-order is located at the bottom of this article. But first, let’s take a look at that cover art!
SPOILER ALERT! If you want to go in cold and just pre-order that hardcover right now, then CLICK HERE. Otherwise, feel free to scroll on!
Now, while we’ve posted in-progress pics, this is the first time we are showing off the full wrap for the hardcover’s dust jacket:
UPDATE: STANDARD EDITION IS AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER TILL JUNE 30TH
DELUXE NUMBERED EDITION IS SOLD OUT
Ok, we will keep this short and sweet:
QUEEN OF TEETH hardcovers will be available for pre-order starting 12AM, Monday, March 1st.
This 198-page hardcover is 6×9 and sports a dust jacket with gloss finish. Cover art and interior art are exclusive to this particular release. There are TWO versions: a regular release; a deluxe limited release.
February 22nd! February is wrapping up and so, it appears, is our month-long look at upcoming Bizarro Pulp Press titles.
CRIMSON KING is the fourth and final title acquired for Bizarro Pulp Press’s 2021 lineup. Every week, we have showcased a different upcoming title, and if you’d like to catch up on our previous announcements, then click the title(s) below and follow their respective link:
February 15th! We are halfway through the month, folks.
Today will be our third look at Bizarro Pulp Press’s 2021 lineup. Every week in February, we have showcased a different title we’ve acquired for the Journalstone imprint. Last week, we showcased what has to be one of 2021’s biggest Bizarro releases, THE RUN FANTASTIC. Before that, we gave everyone a look at the highly-anticipated collection of horror poetry, LOST LETTERS TO A LOVER’S CARCASS.
This week, we share with you Kyle Wright’s IN CONTROL, a tightly-wound novella exploring body and psychological horror.
What a week and change! Great stuff happening in the indie horror community, these days, and no further proof needed than to see HOW MANY indie titles hit the Bram Stoker Award preliminary ballot. Holy smokes, folks! And congratulations to everybody, not just the writers, but the publishers and readers and the folks tirelessly pushing this stuff in their circles. We see you and appreciate you!
And what really blew us away was seeing ALL THREE of our 2020 Strangehouse titles on the ballot:
Happiest New Year to you, dear reader. Glad to have you with us! Last year was a bit nuts, and though we are sure that 2021 will have its own nasty surprises, here’s hoping the year gives everyone a shot in the arm of positivity (and a real shot in the arm of vaccine). Regardless, we have no intention of slowing our particular roll, and that means stepping up our production-side of things. Namely, our special editions, which we formally introduced in 2020.
Our 2020 hardcovers were pretty popular, and we will continue offering hardcovers in 2021. However, we fielded some interesting requests, and after brainstorming a little bit, we’ve decided to offer “deluxe” editions of our hardcover releases. These will include, at a minimum, a numbered hardcover featuring foil designs, housed in a custom slipcase and/or box, with a small art print signed by author and artist(s). Additional swag will include a sticker and an exclusive die-cut bookmark. Now, there is a lot of R&D going on right now, but here’s a look at some test-run prototypes:
We’re gonna lead off with that sneak peek at the cover for CRIMSON KING, because we think it’s just grand. And it works as the perfect segue into our first topic: December and January. To be more exact, our lack of coming availability during those two months, but we promise it’s for a good cause.
