Over at Jersey Devil Press, we have a whole mess of cool projects in the works. We’re working on a special Halloween-themed issue of the magazine, we have the special novella issue coming out later this summer, and we have not one but two books coming out later this year: Eirik Gumeny’s Exponential Apocalypse: Dead Presidents and Ryan Werner’s
maybe-titled-but-technically-still-untitled story collection. [UPDATE: After much deliberation and beard-tugging, Ryan Werner finally settled on a title for his upcoming book: Shake Away These Constant Days.]
To launch those two books, we’ve been running a Kickstarter campaign. It’s been going well so far, but we’re still short of the goal, and you can help us get there. This sounds like we’re running a pledge drive. We’re not public radio (though I love public radio, and yes, I’m a member of Oregon Public Broadcasting). What we’re offering is, for the bargain price of a mere $5, an opportunity for you to patronize the arts. Like rich people used to do back when people cared about the arts, except you don’t have to be rich. You just have to skip your Starbucks and make your coffee at home today (which is probably a good idea anyway).
Or maybe you’re a good old-fashioned red-blooded Capitalist and you don’t like giving away your money unless you can get something in return. Not to worry: we’ve got you covered! For just a few bucks more, you can simply use the Kickstarter campaign to pre-order your book (or both books, if you have some extra cash and like saving money).
And the swag gets cooler from there. We have a whole list of awesomeness we’re willing to dole out for people who support the books. So if you like literature and alcoholic gods and rock and roll and werewolves and sex and cuss words and everything else that’s cool, head over to the Kickstarter and sign yourself up.
But hurry! There are only 26 days to go….
