    Origami Dreams Expanded and More!

    Today, the pre-order for Jon Padgett's ORIGAMI DREAMS (Expanded Edition) Charitable Chapbook went up on the Nightscape Press webstore! This time around, Jon has chosen RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization as the charity he will be contributing one third of the proceeds to from this physical chapbook edition! We're honored and humbled to be able to help Jon contribute to another fine charity and make a beautiful little book at the same time. 


    And also on the Charitable Chapbook front, we'll be revealing some artwork for both watch the whole goddamned thing burn by Doungjai Gam and IF IT BLEEDS by Matthew M. Bartlett very soon (both are available for pre-order and not yet sold out!). Hopefully before the new year. 


    In other news, Robert will be sending out the last responses to folks who submitted their stories to ASHES AND ENTROPY over the next couple days. We would like to thank all of you who submitted for your patience and for sending us so many great stories to choose from. We really were shocked by both the amount and the array of fine stories that we received.

    Speaking of the anthology, we'll finally be getting back to our ASHES AND ENTROPY Story Spotlights in the next few days. These will run into and beyond the official eBook release on December 11th (if you haven't already, you can pre-order the Kindle edition from Amazon or the mobi, ePub, or PDF editions directly from Nightscape Press, same goes for the paperback editions). That said, unfortunately the paperback editions will be coming out a bit late. We'll have more definitive release dates for those very soon.

    The year is almost over, and we would like to wish you all the happiest of holidays as we look forward to a very exciting new year of fantastic book releases and charitable donations!

    Introducing a Brand New Charitable Chapbook: IF IT BLEEDS by Matthew M. Bartlett!

    We're excited to announce that Matthew M. Bartlett has joined Doungjai Gam on our 2019 Charitable Chapbook roster with his new WXXT/Leeds novelette, IF IT BLEEDS! Matthew has selected a wonderful local charity called the Dakin Humane Society where he and his wife adopted their cat, Peachpie! One third of all proceeds from the physical chapbook edition of this title will go their way and we're very excited for that!

    A toe-tapping track from way back spreads like a virus through Leeds, Massachusetts, heralding a new era of unspeakable evil. WXXT - the slithering tongue in the ear of the Pioneer Valley. Are you ready to rock?

    And with that announcement, how about another? Both Matthew's IF IT BLEEDS and Doungjai Gam's watch the whole goddamned thing burn (which gives one third of its proceeds to Trans Lifeline!) are now available for pre-order on our webstore! Both of these chapbooks will be limited to only 100 copies! Get your copies before they're gone! Release date and more details for both of these will be coming very soon!

    Providence, New Orleans, and Chapbooks, Oh My!

    Over the past two weeks a lot’s happened in Nightscape Press land. We took our Halloween vacation which was more like a Halloween work-ation. We packed up the car and headed up to Providence, Rhode Island and finalized THE BROKER OF NIGHTMARES by Jon Padgett. Then I headed over to Northampton and met up with Matthew M. Bartlett, who I had some wonderful dinner and conversation with. The next day, Jen and I dropped in on the Arcade Asylum Author Series Hallowe’en reading at the Lovecraft Arts and Sciences Council and saw Meg Smith, Doungjai Gam Bepko, and Daniel Braum read, which was a wonderful treat. We’re excited to announce that afterward, we signed a contract with Doungjai Gam Bepko for her brand new gritty noir tale “watch the whole goddamned thing burn” which will be published as part of our Charitable Chapbook line likely early next year!




    For those who don’t already know, each title from our Charitable Chapbook line comes out in a physical limited and illustrated chapbook edition that gives one third of its proceeds to the charity of its author’s choice (the other two thirds are split evenly between the author and Nightscape Press) and then six months later an eBook edition is released that gives 40% to the same chosen charity (another 40% goes to the author, and Nightscape Press keeps the remaining 20%). Gam chose Trans Lifeline as the charity her chapbook will contribute to!
    Trans Lifeline is a national trans-led organization dedicated to improving the quality of trans lives by responding to the critical needs of the trans community with direct service, material support, advocacy, and education. Their vision is to fight the epidemic of trans suicide and improve overall life-outcomes of trans people by facilitating justice-oriented, collective community aid. We couldn’t be more super proud and excited to help Gam raise funds for such a wonderful cause!

    After Providence, we took the long drive down to New Orleans to meet with Jon Padgett on Devil's Night where he signed all 100 copies of THE BROKER OF NIGHTMARES! It was great finally meeting Jon and chatting with him. Later that night, we sent the first donation off to Jon's chosen charity, the ACLU, for $500! (When we sell out of the rest of these, we'll be sending another $500 their way! There are currently 24 copies left as of this writing! Go get one!) Then, for our last night in NOLA, we had a wonderful Halloween at the Music Box Village which was a hell of an interesting experience.
    Now that we’re home, I’m finishing up slush reading and editing for ASHES AND ENTROPY. The plan is to have all stories responded to and the final stories chosen in the next week and a half and then it’s headlong into formatting and production. So, if you’re still waiting on a response from me for that, know that you’ll receive it very soon. As for our recent novel submissions call, we’re planning to have all responses out by the end of the year.

    Back on the chapbook front, we are currently working on Charitable Chapbook subscription options and should have that finalized soon. When that’s sorted, we’ll be offering our 2019 subscription package most likely on our webstore as well as via our new and improved Patreon page that we’ll be launching soon. This subscription package will include each chapbook we publish in 2019 as well as some really cool exclusive bonus stuff that I can’t talk about just yet. But soon! So soon! Anyway, that’s it for now. Be kind to one another and, U.S. folks, if you haven’t already, be sure and vote tomorrow!
