Publishing Contract & Phoenix Comicon

Greetings everyone! Some of you already know that John and I have been shopping the worldwide English paperback and e-book rights to a few publishers that we thought would be a good match for War of the Worlds: Retaliation.

Our sequel to the H. G. Wells masterpiece, The War of the Worlds, has been selling briskly in 5×8 paperback, kindle and audiobook. John and I knew we had something special, and we wanted an independent press that would match our enthusiasm and push our story to the next level. We also wanted to avoid being treated like an commodity that so many large publishers seem to treat their authors. We wanted a publisher that could see past 90 days; 180 days; and even toward the future. We wanted Severed Press.

Established in 2008, Severed Press is a leading independent publisher of horror and science fiction. Severed Press runs the gamut of horror and science fiction storytelling from A to Z. Publishing popular Apocalypse to Zombie, with kaiju, military and sea monster, John and I know our novel of the war between Earth and Mars will be right at home with the likes of Tim Curran, Mark Tufo and Jake Bible.

John and I look forward to working with the team at Severed Press on War of the Worlds: Retaliation, and hope that the future holds another collaborative telling of Humans versus the Martians. Be sure to check out other stories published by Severed Press and the talented authors you’ll find there.

In other exciting news, John and I have been invited to be guests at the 2017 Phoenix Comicon over Memorial Day weekend. We’re still finalizing the details, and I hope to share the particulars with you all soon. I expect to arrive Thursday and be there all day Friday, Saturday & Sunday. I think John will be there on Saturday and Sunday. We’re not sure where we’ll be signing autographs, what vendors will have our books, or what panels we may be on, but we’re both looking forward to seeing you all there!
