These will be finished up and shipped NEXT month, but I wanted to give all of you the first look at the Lettered Edition of THE ZOMBIE WHO CRIED HUMAN! This Signed & Traycased Lettered Edition is limited to just 26 copies and it hasn’t actually been announced to the general public yet, let alone SOLD to anyone, but supporters on Level 7 and above are already on the list, of course. The traycase is blind stamped on the FRONT, the BACK, and the SPINE. There’s a pull-out ribbon inside. The endpapers have a really nice “crush texture” embossing. And … Continue reading BONUS CONTENT: Sneak peek photos at a new and unannounced Lettered Edition!
I mentioned this book once last year, and like I said last year, I probably shouldn’t be sharing this at all yet because it’s a September 2020 publication, but I wanted to show you something because this is yet another project that is finally happening because I had the time to work on it thanks to your support! But again… this is also completely unannounced, so please don’t mention this book or share the art anywhere! Thanks! The Girl Who Builds Monsters is a traditional children’s book with a bit of a twist. I wrote the text and Vincent Chong … Continue reading BONUS CONTENT: Top Secret artwork preview of a new children’s book due out in 2020!
This might like seem like a silly thing, but after crunching the numbers for my revised Patreon budget for 2019, thanks to the new supporters and those of you who have jumped to higher levels lately, I was able to have my new batch of “Thank you for your support” cards professionally printed by a local print shop on a much nicer, heavy card stock. I try to include a signed card from time to time with the printed rewards I ship. I don’t ask the warehouse staff at CD to include one when they’re helping me out like they … Continue reading BONUS CONTENT: New thank you cards and REVIVAL news!

Thank you … Continue reading BONUS CONTENT: Sneak peek at changes to future Patreon Only publications!

As you might remember, I’ve switched gears to stand-alone short stories for the chapbooks for now since the serialized novel concept wasn’t gelling for me. (Reminder: these chapbooks ship to anyone on rewards Levels 2 and above!) Today, I’d like to show you the first illustration from Glenn Chadbourne for the next chapbook: The next chapbook will ship in early 2019 due to the time it took me to be happy with the story, although I’m still not sure I’m truly happy with it! That could be because this one is REALLY WEIRD. At least for me. Compared to other … Continue reading BONUS CONTENT: First Glenn Chadbourne Illustration From A New Chapbook For Supporters Only!
When a book’s dust jacket is placed on the book at the printer, there is a nifty machine that handles the process, including the most important part: getting the folds in just the right place with just the right amount of pressure to create the proper crease. Too hard of a crease and the DJ will be too tight around the spine.
