Well, the time has finally come. The project I’ve been developing these last few months is ready for launch. All my ruminations on this here blog, setting up my new mailing list (Fresh from the Vat! Sign up above!), and the sheer amount of research and painstaking planning has been building up to this moment. Now you get to see it…
Bacon Fried Bastard is now the very first Clone Warrior release. You can buy a brand new copy at Amazon, either in paperback or ebook (and if you’ve got Kindle Unlimited? Shiiiiiiiiit, it’s free). BFB was previously published by Eraserhead Press about six years ago now, and since I already had the artwork on hand, I decided this book would be the best guinea pig for my new publishing process. Setting up this first book was a huge task, mainly because I haven’t self-published in over a decade, but today has made it all worth it.
At this point, I want to thank everyone who helped me in the process. I hate dropping names, but these folks were a tremendous help: Karl and Whitney Fischer, my now fellow publishers who gave me invaluable advice while I was building Clone Warrior, and for helping to go over the BFB manuscript. I also want to thank Kari Holloway for her services in having BFB reformatted and for the sheer scope of her publishing knowledge, which she’s very generous with. Also deserving of thanks is the great Don Noble for designing the cover. His work is always top notch and worth every penny. And last but definitely not least is the cover artist Nick Gucker. Nick created that cover image as a poster for me back when BFB first came out. Working with him again was a pleasure, as I’m an admirer of his gargantuan talents and hope to have him make the next few Clone Warrior covers. The man’s an amazing artist and an amazing human being.
But back to myself. Because even with this new venture finally kicking off, and the holidays, and the pandemic, and my wife and kids… I’ve got MORE stuff going on.
This weekend I’m taking part in a VIRTUAL BOOK SIGNING held by the good folks at Babou691. On December 5&6, just go to Babou691.com and browse the virtual sales tables of twelve weird writers. You can then choose to buy something directly from the authors, autographs included. I happen to have a lot of inventory from going a year without cons, and if you know me, you know I always send tons of crazy extra stuff when you order directly from me.
Check it out. Check out Bacon Fried Bastard. Sign up for my mailing list so you can check out everything coming in the future from Clone Warrior.
Because more is coming.
