Not only will we be celebrating our third anniversary as Crazy 8 Press, but we’ll be unveiling our schedule of upcoming new books! Over the next year or so we have multiple titles set to come your way … and we think you’re gonna love ’em!
In fact … we’ve got a brand new book — Tales of the Crimson Keep — that we’ll be debuting at Shore Leave!
For the convention itself, six members of our author team – Russ Colchamiro, Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Robert Greenberger, Glenn Hauman, and Aaron Rosenberg – will be on hand all three days, participating in a wide variety of panels as befit their myriad professional experiences and interests. We’ll be talking books, and movies, and TV and everything fun and awesome that’s scifi.
Now let’s talk Tales of the Crimson Keep.
For the big unveiling … Friday evening from 10 p.m. until Midnight we’ll be a part of the Meet the Pros party where our first ever Crazy 8 Press anthology will be making its first appearance. This book is an outgrowth of the story “Demon Circle’, a creepy, funny, magical tale written by the Crazy 8 Press co-founders in 2011 as part of our team’s premiere event. We all took turns writing the story, based on an opening line contributed by Kevin Dilmore, another convention guest this year, in a tight, tiny public space, adding to the challenge. The original tale was released as an eBook with proceeds benefiting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
Tales of the Crimson Keep includes “Demon Circle’ as well as seven brand new stories set in this shared universe, along with an introduction from Dilmore. Print copies debut this weekend and Kindle and Nook editions should be available within the next week.
As a part of the weekend celebration, we will be giving away a copy of Tales of the Crimson Keep though Goodreads.
Our Crazy 8 Press panel will be held on Sunday at 1 p.m. where we will chat, make you laugh and even give away a Crazy 8 Press polo shirt.
As always, we’re excited to mix and mingle with everyone, because, let’s face it … the fans are what keep us going. And we’re proud to say our fans are awesome. :)
So come join us in the Concierge suite for a rollicking good time with Crazy 8 Press
See you there!
