Horrors: Real, Imagined, and Deadly

Perhaps more than any previous EBP book, the upcoming horror anthology created a myriad of monsters that haunted my summer. But we have managed them (you never quite tame powerful monsters) and are ready to reveal the stunning cover that graces the stories within. Created by the multitalented Charlee Hoffman, this cover conveys a level of creepiness that I'd only hoped to capture. Well done, Charlee!

What I've learned during my summer workation

I'll admit, I'm a little surprised at how long it has been since I last posted at this blog. I will most assuredly post more often in the coming weeks, as I have many posts in the works, including a review of a book of poetry, a Q&A with an author friend, and -- most likely the next post -- the cover reveal for the next book by Elephant's Bookshelf Press: Horrors: Real, Imagined, and Deadly.

Over the past couple of months, I've been working on the horror anthology and editing the next installment of the Billy Bobble series (another post or two to come as the fall progresses). But I've also been studying more about the publishing industry. Leading into 2016, I anticipate that you'll see some changes on this blog, but more significantly there'll be improvements on the EBP website, where I'll alter the way I use it -- in short: less billboard, more community.

With that in mind, I'd love to hear what you all have been doing. Feel free to share your goals for the rest of the year, or what you've accomplished so far. My goal with EBP has always been to help aspiring talented authors gain an audience, so let's work together. Indeed, our goals are often similar!
