New Chapbook For Brian James Freeman Patreon Supporters!

We’re in the home stretch for the next signed Limited Edition chapbook for my Patreon supporters on Level 2 and above, and this one will ship in June based on the current timing.

If you’re not already on Level 2 or above, there’s still time to make the jump if you’re interested. Just visit the Join page on Patreon to join or to change your membership.

Because we have a lot of new supporters on the chapbook level this year, I’m taking a break from the “Lost Echoes” chapbook series and publishing one of my more popular standalone short stories instead. Here is a screenshot of the cover proof:

Generally speaking, the rest 2021 is going to be an extremely busy and exciting time here in the Freeman household. In addition to some new writing projects, Lividian Publications is ramping up to publish a good number of books in 2022 and beyond, and a lot of that work needs to get done this year.

Thank you for your continuing support and enthusiasm. More news to come soon!

New Chapbook: “The Sniper” by Richard Chizmar

Hi Folks!

I thought we might try something a little different for the next Patreon Supporters exclusive chapbook.

A few years back, Richard Chizmar and I collaborated on Darkness Whispers, a novella that was published as a beautiful signed Limited Edition hardcover by Scarlet Galleon Publications and later as a trade paperback and eBook by JournalStone.

Here’s a little secret, though: Darkness Whispers is actually based on the very first short story Richard ever sold, way back in the 1980s, called “The Sniper.”

In early 2016, he was going through some old files in his office when he stumbled upon the original manuscript, as well as an acceptance letter and a contract — but a contributor copy was nowhere to be found, and he realized he had no memory of the story ever being published.

A comic adaptation of “The Sniper” had been included as a bonus item in Midnight Promises, his very first short story collection, but the prose version appeared to be unpublished after all these years.

Richard asked me if I would be interested in doing a rewrite and expansion of the story. I quickly agreed, and we traded it back and forth for a few weeks and came up with the novella that would become Darkness Whispers.

In this new chapbook I’m publishing exclusively for my Patreon Supporters, you will find Richard’s original draft of “The Sniper,” so you can experience the story as he originally intended it way back in the day.

All copies will be signed by both Richard and myself, and this reward will ship in December to all supporters who are on Level Two or above as of November 2019, so now is the perfect time to sign-up if you’re interested in what I’m doing over on Patreon!
