Hi everyone. It’s been a while, but I wanted to give this very important update.
I’m doing it again!
Last year, with the help of a generous group of supporters, I not only launched the novella The Séance, but started up Dark Chapter Press. Since then I have worked hard to build the presence of this small press and very soon, Dark Chapter Press will launch its first ever horror anthology, Kill For A Copy.
17 horror writers have assembled to create a collection that is by turns chilling, brutal and darkly humorous. And the best part? I managed to get master of horror, Shaun Hutson, to provide the foreword.
Kill For A Copy is going make a big splash with Mr Hutson’s involvement. But the really nice part of it is that this anthology features first appearances by some unknown writers who will, first time out, claim that connection to Shaun Hutson.
This time around, the goal is much more ambitious and with good reason. Dark Chapter Press already has a great reputation for you know… actually replying to the writers who submit work, giving guidance and support, rather than leaving them hanging on for a reply. Now is the time to go a step further. We need to build a reputation for paying authors a professional rate and in order to continue to grow, we have to market more precisely.
The initial funding goal will enable all of the authors involved (except me) to take a professional per word payment for their stories, and will also allow me to advertise Dark Chapter Press’s publications through top UK horror magazine Scream.
With several projects in the pipeline this year, Dark Chapter Press is about to step out of the shadows and make its presence known not only with horror writers, but with many more horror readers worldwide.
Of course, while all of this is going on, I continue to write, and the next stages of the Dr Blessing Legacy claw their way ever-closer to your bookcase.
In the meantime, friends and strangers came out to bat for me before, I hope you can support this ambitious new project and, as I always ask, tell your friends, family and followers to jump on board, too by forwarding this link http://kck.st/1EJHzDV and sharing this post.
My thanks as always,
