Yet another little reminder that subscription places are still available from Volume #4 onwards (Paul Finch’s King Death, available in December) – however, there are very few of those places left now, just 35 as of today, 19th July 2011. I’ve included Paypal buttons below for your convenience! (If paying by cheque or bank transfer, email Simon Marshall-Jones at spectralpress[AT]gmail[DOT]com for further details).
As an incentive for people to subscribe, as Spectral expands over the next couple of years with the introduction of new lines of books, subscribers will be able to claim discounts off the cover price of these new lines, and they will also be sent an occasional subscriber-only newsletter giving advance notice and details of forthcoming publications (before they’re announced here), along with any new developments with the imprint. There may also be other stuff available as well, like exclusive competitions and what have you. Remember, to take full advantage of any offers, you need to subscribe (or resubscribe) and there aren’t many places left available for the chapbooks!!
Look forward to hearing from you!
First up, I am hoping that Spectral Volume III, Cate Gardner’s Nowhere Hall, will be sent to the printers earlier than anticipated (probably early in August – all copies will be sent out in the latter half of the same month), considering that it sold out so quickly. I’ll be sending all elements to my graphic designer sometime in the next two weeks or so so he can put it all together and then it’ll be all go again…. and not long afterwards it’ll be onto Paul Finch’s King Death, coming in December… =)
Secondly, I’ve now started sending out subscriber newsletters, to keep everyone informed of what’s going on in the world of Spectral. Newsletter #1 was a PDF only affair, but from #2 it’ll be a proper email newsletter, with help from Mr. Chris Bissette, who showed me how to set it all up (for which this technologically-challenged publisher is eternally grateful). The frequency has still to be decided, but it’ll definitely contain news of forthcoming chapbook publications and new developments, plus there’ll also be news of subscriber-only benefits coming soon – so, if you want to know what they’ll be, then I suggest you should subscribe to this exciting new imprint NOW! (Details can be found elsewhere on this website)…
Standby, too, for the announcement of a great new development coming soon(ish)… =D
