Very shortly we are going to begin to feature some reviews and articles that one of our authors Stephen Zimmer will be coordinating. They will put the spotlight on small press publishers and authors, as we believe that the small press world is more viable than ever as larger houses face cutbacks and shrink their rosters.
There are outstanding publishers and authors out there and we would like to help others to discover them.
Stephen will also be heading to ConCarolinas this weekend where he will be at an exhibitor's table being shared between Seventh Star Press and the paranormal/horror convention ScareFest (Lori Baker and Susan Rummel will be on hand with Stephen). Expect a full report on Concarolinas when he returns.
On a side note, we have launched a new promotion for The Exodus Gate to encourage purchasing of the book in bookstores. Here is a copy of the information as posted on our website:
