I am asking for donations that will provide the start-up capital needed to realize my goal of growing DEAD STAR PRESS LLC into a competitive, independent publisher of Speculative Fiction, Science Fiction, Social Commentary, and anything weird enough to abduct the mind. My goal is not only to publish my own works through the press but also to publish and support other authors like myself who have been excluded, by no fault of their talents, from achieving traditional publishing. If you can’t beat them, join them, then beat them.
After several years of researching independent publishing opportunities for my writing, I have a great deal of first-hand knowledge about what indie authors want, expect, and need from an independent publisher. With the help of Andrea Greenwald & Marie Turko, DEAD STAR PRESS will have the combined abilities and qualifications to professionally edit, design, and market works for authors on a level that rivals or exceeds many of the indie presses with which I am familiar.
All donations over $10 will receive a free copy of our first planned publication which will be a coffee table, quotation book-style collection of posts from my Thought & Other Absurdities blog. If we meet our goal, higher donations of over $100 will receive promotional logo merchandise to be determined. Any amount will be greatly appreciated.
Thank all of you for your support of my writing and for your continued support in this next step in building a full-time writing and publishing career.
Help us get more weird out into the world.
