“Walking With the Ghosts of Pier 13” — A Short Story by Brian James Freeman!

I’ve just posted my short story “Walking With the Ghosts of Pier 13” for my supporters over at Patreon!

Patrons can read the story immediately — and so can you for a pledge of just $1 or more.

Please visit my Patreon page to learn  about the different rewards I’m creating and publishing exclusively for my supporters. I’d love to see you there!

Thank you, as always, for your continuing support!

Free Reads! Exclusive Chapbooks! Signed Review Copies! Exclusive Limited Edition Collections! And ALL of the Books!


Here are the details about my new “Level Five” rewards level over at Patreon!

If you sign-up for Level Five on the rewards tier, you get:

1) the free monthly reads from Level One!

2) the signed Limited Edition chapbooks twice per year from Level Two!

3) the signed advance review copies twice per year from Level Three!

4) the signed Limited Edition trade paperback short story collection that will be published exclusively for Patreon Supporters once per year on Level Four — and this collection will never be reprinted in any form!

5) AND, as a supporter on Level Five, you’ll get a copy of every short story collection, novella, and novel I write, along with the anthologies I edit, for as long as you stay an active supporter at this level!

This means eBooks, trade editions, and even signed Limited Edition hardcovers. New books and reprints, they’re all yours if you want them. This applies to all books published after January 1, 2018 and ALL editions of the books except for Lettered Editions since I only get one or two copies of those. (Sorry!)

So if you want the eBook edition of my new book, it’s yours! Oh, you want the signed Limited Edition, too? That’s yours! Oh, there’s a trade paperback? Boom — it’s yours and I’ll sign it if you want!

Q: BUT WHAT DO YOU HAVE COMING OUT IN 2018?

A: Whoa, I didn’t realize this was a Q&A, but great question!

The first book due out in 2018 is the trade hardcover of The Halloween Children, my novel cowritten with Norman Prentiss. Check out the beautiful approval copy of the book in the photo below.

I’m actually probably a little nuts for offering this Reward Level because 2018 is looking to be my most “productive” year in my entire career due to a whole bunch of long-gestating projects finally being published at the same time. On tap for 2018 are:

The Halloween Children (trade hardcover)
Dark Screams: Volume 9 (eBook)
Dark Screams: Volume 10 (eBook)
Lost and Lonely (signed Limited Edition short story collection)
The Echo of Memory (novel)
The Suicide Diary (novel)
Killer Crimes (signed Limited Edition anthology)
Halloween Carnival omnibus (signed Limited Edition hardcover anthology)
Dark Screams omnibus (signed Limited Edition hardcover anthology)
The Zombie Who Cried Human (children’s book)
Weak & Wounded (newly revised and expanded trade paperback)
More Than Midnight (newly revised and expanded trade paperback)
Dreamlikes States (newly revised and expanded trade paperback)
Lost & Lonely (newly revised and expanded trade paperback)

So that’s the deal with Level Five!

I hope you’ll give it a shot if you can afford to send that much support my way, but I’ll totally understand if you cannot.

Every single one of you at every level is making it possible for me to spend MORE time writing and publishing my own work in 2018, so you’re all awesome in my book and your support is appreciated more than you’ll ever know.

Thank you very much!

New Rewards, New Levels, Still Time To Qualify For Big Rewards!

I’m making some improvements to my Patreon rewards levels for those who might be interested in signing up before the big rewards kick in:

Since most of us are pretty new to Patreon, I’ve decide to waive the “minimum period to receive rewards” for January 2018.

What that means is this: whatever reward level you’re at on January 1, 2018 is the reward you will get in January 2018 regardless of when you signed up for that level.

So please feel free to sign up TODAY for the first time OR, if you’re already a supporter, you can jump to a higher level if you’d like to get even more/better  rewards right away.

Also, there is a new LEVEL FIVE in the rewards program that you might be interested in. Here are the details:

LEVEL FIVE: ALL the Above PLUS a copy of every book I publish!

All of the other rewards (free reads, exclusive chapbooks, signed ARCs, an exclusive trade paperback just for supporters) PLUS you can receive a FREE copy of every new book/edition with my name on it that’s published while you’re at Level Five. This includes collections, novellas, and novels I write, along with anthologies I edit. eBooks, trade editions, and even signed Limited Edition hardcovers. New books and reprints, they’re all yours if you want them.

To sign-up or change your current level, just visit my Patreon page:

Supporters To Be Thanked In A Signed Limited Edition Book!

As my supporters on Patreon already know, I have a new short story collection coming out in 2018 called WALKING WITH GHOSTS, which will feature 28 of my stories (several of them new, all of them revised), extensive story notes, an introduction by William Peter Blatty, and stunning color artwork by Vincent Chong.

I’m very pleased to report today that everyone who supports my Patreon page at ANY LEVEL before October 1, 2017 will be thanked on a special acknowledgements page in the signed Limited Edition hardcover of WALKING WITH GHOSTS.

More details will be shared when the book is actually announced next year, but I wanted to let you know now that your support played a major role in making this collection possible. Thank you!
