New Stock art and Now Introducing Premium Packages

It occurred to me that it might be real nice to have a package available for authors who want more than just a book cover version of their product. I’ve done a lot of book shows in my life, and it’s always cool to see a book’s eye catching art as a poster, or buttons, or stickers. A lot of my latest work has been built at larger sizes , so last night, I went ahead and split our Pre-Made Section in our Design Services into two categories – Premium and Standard. The initial purchase for an ebook/jacket is exactly the same for both categories, but the Premium covers can be expanded to 11×17 inch posters and various other larger merchandise like shirts, banners, etc. etc.

If you are buying a Premium cover, it is not required to expand the package and spend the extra cash. It simply just gives you the option.

Premium and Standard can both be made into smaller items like book marks, stickers, ads, and buttons for an extra charge, but the Standard covers cannot really go up in size because they will distort and lose quality. The Premium package begins at an extra $150, and will provide the author/publisher with a hi-rez file with the book cover and its text. You are not just buying a poster version of your book, but essentially buying the rights to resale this poster as your own merchandise, and keep the profit all to yourself. Each item beyond that will be a smaller charge – items like buttons, stickers, ads, and book marks for example – are easy to retrofit and begin at $25 per item. Some items will need to be discussed because time and difficulty can be a thing. If you have any questions, always feel free to reach out to us at roosterrepublicpress@gmail.com.

Now let’s take a look at the two new covers – The Ritual, a Premium, and Bladepunk, a Standard cover.

Cover Reveal for NOT ALL MONSTERS

Ok, we will keep this post short and sweet because we know you’re just here for the good stuff and not our rambling. After a little back-and-forth over the weekend, a front cover was finalized for the upcoming Strangehouse anthology, Not All Monsters. We like it, and we hope you like it, too!

Check it out:

Not All Monsters v2

We won’t have a full wraparound until the interior is finished, which will be awhile as the individual stories are still going through edits, but we wanted to share this with you.

Hope you’re looking forward to the book!

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!

[For the really big announcement, scroll to the bottom. Otherwise, read on – Ed.]

We are closing in on the end of our production schedule for 2018. The last several weeks have seen some great new books go live: Andrew James Stone’s All Hail the House Gods; Christoph Paul’s At Least I Get You < In My Art; Matthew Sunrich’s Someone Shot the Hip Young Conductor; Charles Austin Muir’s Body Building Spider Rangers.

For October, we are currently prepping both Michael Allen Rose’s Rock and Roll Death Patrol and Sara Tantlinger’s The Devil’s Dreamland, respectively.

Beyond that, we have Gareth Bennett’s The Full Howie, and then…

…well, that’s it, for a good, long while. Let’s talk about that.
