TALES OF UNSPEAKABLE TASTE cover and other news

Well, let’s get the formalities out of the way and take a look at this new cover for Bizarro Pulp Press and Journalstone’s upcoming TALES OF UNSPEAKABLE TASTE, from the poison pen (tainted typewriter? killer keyboard?) of John Bruni:

FAIREST FLESH Street Date and Cover Reveal, and More

The street date for the trade paperback of FAIREST FLESH has been moved out by about a month and change. The title is now expected to release on December 1st, 2020 (instead of October 31st). The reason for this is simple: MARKETING.

FAIREST FLESH is a debut novel, and Rooster Republic/Strangehouse Books is as indie as it gets, all things considered, so in order to give this book the best release possible, we opted to move the release date to accommodate more time for lead-in marketing. Mostly, this translates to us getting the book into the hands of more reviewers, which we have been grinding away at for the better part of this week. And we’re rolling the dice on some bigger venues because, frankly, we believe this book deserves all the eyes we can get on it.

FAIREST FLESH special edition pre-orders!

Paul Tremblay (A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS and SURVIVOR SONG) had this to say about FAIREST FLESH:

“Deftly mashing together notorious historical figures, feminism, and the grimmest of fairy tales, FAIREST FLESH is as brutally horrifying as it is mesmeric. Consider me a K.P. Kulski fan for life.”

Fairest Flesh MEDIA dust jacket

Well, we’d say it looks like it’s time for . . . FLESH! This book will undoubtedly garner a lot of word of mouth, and it deserves every bit of it! Rooster Republic looks forward to hearing and seeing reader’s responses to this outstanding novel.

We asked Sara Tantlinger to pick a poem from CRADLELAND OF PARASITES so that we could showcase it (along with four others that will appear here on every Monday in July), and she picked the poem titled “On a White Horse”, which opens her new collection.

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.

Updates for May 2020, Plus a Look at Key Art for CRADLELAND OF PARASITES

Well, what an extremely interesting spring it has turned out to be! Challenging, perhaps a bit hectic, but also fairly rewarding. NOT ALL MONSTERS special editions have sold rather well, especially since we decided to release the title without much in the way of marketing or fanfare, but we felt it necessary and best for the book.
