If It Bleeds Cover Reveal and a Caribbean Cabal with Laird Barron and John Langan!

Behold! Nightscape Press gives you Yves Tourigny's cover for IF IT BLEEDS by Matthew M. Bartlett!!!

And in case this is the first you're hearing of this lovely upcoming chapbook:

One third of all sales of this chapbook will go to support the Dakin Humane Society where Matthew and his wife adopted their lovely cat, Peachpie!

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?

Along with this lovely covery by Yves, he also provided a phenomenal color frontispiece as well and the chapbook will also be fully color illustrated by Luke Spooner. As of this writing, we're down to only 39 copies of the physical chapbook edition so the time is nigh to grab your copy! That will start shipping on or before February 26th 2019 and there's also an eBook edition available for pre-order as well which will be out six months after that on August 26th!

We've also been holding on to a HUGE surprise for awhile now but the time has finally come to reveal it! Our very first Nightscape Press Charitable Writer's Retreat!

Registration is now available for the 2019 Nightscape Press Caribbean Cabal Charitable Writers Retreat (with special guests Laird Barron and John Langan)! This is going to be one hell of a retreat and one hell of a good time and the net proceeds will go to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project! The Sylvia Rivera Law Project works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence.

The retreat is scheduled for June 29th through July 3rd in Costa Rica and has been set up in association with the Casa Bella resort which is ran by our good friend, the phenomenal writer Erinn Kemper along with her husband. We hope to raise as much as possible for charity with this event. If we manage to sell out all of the slots we'll be able to give the Sylvia Rivera Law Project $10,000! We're really excited about this and hope you'll join us on the beach this summer!

    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!
