General Patreon News From Brian James Freeman!

For those who are curious about what I’ve been posting on Patreon, you can see the new “Table of Contents” I created a while back. It has links to most of my Patreon posts, which will give you some idea of what I’m doing over there. As you might know, I don’t “push” my Patreon because I figure readers who are really interested in that sort of thing will sign up without the hard sell, AND because this whole new way of doing things is still weird and uncomfortable to discuss at times. We’re a long way from the days … Continue reading General Patreon News From Brian James Freeman!

The Girl Who Builds Monsters bluelines!

We received the bluelines (printer’s proof) for The Girl Who Builds Monsters, and the book is even more beautiful than I expected. Here is a very quick photo I snapped: About the Book: Emma is quiet, and often lonely, because the birthmark on her face scares the other kids in town. She lives with her kindly grandfather, who owns a factory where he creates the most beautiful dolls in the world. One day while exploring the factory, Emma discovers a forgotten workbench and some wooden crates. Inside the crates are broken pieces of machinery and rejected doll parts, which Emma … Continue reading The Girl Who Builds Monsters bluelines!

One day while exploring the factory, Emma discovers a forgotten workbench and some wooden crates. Inside the crates are broken pieces of machinery and rejected doll parts, … Continue reading The Girl Who Builds Monsters review copy!

She lives with her kindly grandfather, who owns a factory where he creates the most beautiful dolls in the world.

Emma loves her dolls, and she has … Continue reading The Girl Who Builds Monsters: Coming This September From Cemetery Dance Publications!

First Photos of New Chapbook for Patreon Supporters! “Lost Echoes: Volume One”

Since trying something different with the last chapbook for my Patreon supporters went really well, I’m trying something different again for the May 2020 chapbook for Patreon supporters who are on Level Two or higher.
