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.

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.
