I’d like to take a moment to extend my thanks to two different groups of readers.
If you’ve listened to this episode and this episode of The Horror Show with Brian Keene, then you know what state I was in not so long ago, and what grief can do to a person, and how nice it is to get out from under that weight. A sincere thank you to every reader that has emailed, Tweeted, or posted elsewhere about the Thunderstorm Books limited edition hardcover of CLICKERS FOREVER: A TRIBUTE TO J.F. GONZALEZ. Your kind words and praise mean the world to me, and to his family and friends as well, and go a looooooong way to lifting that weight for good. On behalf of myself, the family, the publisher, and the contributors…thank you. (And if you missed out on the hardcover, Deadite Press will be releasing the book in paperback and ebook in just a few short months).
I would also like to thank my monthly Patreon subscribers. Our corporate-owned government and their corporate-controlled news outlets are reporting that the economy is on the upswing. Those of us who work in entertainment, particularly the publishing business, know that’s not true. Our ilk have always been the canaries in the economic coal mine, and this time is no different. I currently earn $731 per month from my Patreon. This month, that money is going toward the electric bill and groceries. To put a fine point on it…my Patreon subscribers are literally putting food on my kid’s table. So, thank you for that. (And if you’re not a Patreon subscriber, check it out. For $1 a month you get access to a serialized novel called THE SEVEN: THE LABYRINTH BOOK ONE. For $5 a month you get that plus behind the scenes stuff like the URBAN GOTHIC and the next Levi novel. For $10 a month you get access to both of those other tiers plus a brand new original short story every month). Click here to start reading right away.
