One of the many steps during the printing of a book is to confirm the printer is using the correct binding material. This is also your last chance to see and approve the hot foil stamping placement, foil color, and stamping job quality before the printer produces hundreds or thousands of finished bindings for the book.

Here is an example from READING STEPHEN KING, which will be published later this year. If you click on the image below and view the high res photo, you can almost see how DEEP the stamping plate is pushing to get this particular hot foil to cover properly:ng S

Bonus Reward In September For Supporters!

To say I’m blown away by the support I’ve received from readers on Patreon is an understatement.

As a token of my appreciation, I’ll be sending each supporter at the $5 or higher reward levels a free signed Advance Review Copy in September.

This wasn’t a “promised” reward, but I wanted to find some small way to say THANK YOU for your support. The ARCs I’m using will represent a mix of new and old projects since I only have so many of each to go around.

For those at the $1 level, I really do appreciate your support as well and I have another “unplanned reward” in the works for this fall that you will receive since it doesn’t require postage and packing materials.

The next story will be ready in about ten days, so please stay tuned. Thank you, as always, for your continuing support!

THE HALLOWEEN CHILDREN eBook Edition Is Only $2.99!

Don’t forget! The Halloween Children, which I co-wrote with the incredible Norman Prentiss, is available as an eBook by Hydra/Random House and can be downloaded IMMEDIATELY for the bargain price of just $2.99!

You can read more about the book at these links:

The first short story I’m posting for “Patrons Only” over at Patreon will be ready to go live early next week, so this is kind of a “last chance” to get in on the ground floor, so to speak… if you’re interested in this sort of thing, that is!
