Saturday Special Report: Updates, News, & More!


Big week here in the dark! Moves being made! Editing and artwork and promo's, oh my! Con season approaches!


Read on to see what is going on and to see a few cool things happening in the community. Each Saturday, I will showcase a little of what Uncomfortably Dark is working on as well as share interesting news from within the community!


 

For Uncomfortably Dark Horror:

Some big things have happened that I will not actually be announcing but these things will allow me to move the publishing house forward in the direction that I want it to take. I have had some great conversations with several other publishers that have been very helpful in answering questions and making sure that I hit the ground running with this endeavor, as well as several other people that are ensuring the same.


EPISODES OF VIOLENCE by David Bernstein is nearing final stages in anticipation of its March 21 release. CREMATED REMAINS by M Ennenbach is in the editing and artwork stage. Both of these projects will be available for purchase at AuthorCon 3 in Williamsburg. Hopefully, David Bernstein will be on site to sign, or I will be able to get him some early copies to sign to bring with me. M Ennenbach will be at AuthorCon 3 to sign copies of CUCKOO, DREAMWHISPERS, and CREMATED REMAINS.


Please remember you are encouraged to bring your own copies from home to be signed by Candace Nola, M Ennenbach, and any of the authors that will be attending. If you have any of the Uncomfortably Dark anthologies such as the Baker’s Dozen, Trapped, Dark Disasters, or The Generator, you are encouraged to bring those to be signed as many of those authors will be in attendance.


Author Patrick Tumblety has confirmed his attendance as well. While his book will not yet be out, he will be on site to pass out promotional materials for his books, networking, talking, and otherwise hanging out with the Uncomfortably Dark team. Please be sure to come and say hello!

The website will be updated this month with author pages and an upcoming release page for all the signed authors. Stay tuned for details on that so you can be among the first to check out the new pages.


 

New Role Announced:

Christina Pfeiffer


For those that do not yet know or may have missed the announcement, Christina Pfeiffer from the Mothers of Mayhem podcast and the Uncomfortably Dark Review Team is now our Review and Submissions coordinator. She is tracking all review submissions, will track all manuscript submissions (when we hold open calls) and will be helping me with the day to day running of the platform, review team, and Facebook Group. Christina has been a major asset to the team, and I cannot do any of this without her!

For Candace Nola:

My personal website is up and running. The link is below. This is where you will now find all my solo projects and news. I have a blog there for personal thoughts, articles, essays, and book news. My appearances, interviews, and more can also be found here. My self-published books will now fall under the “Kindness in the Dark” brand rather than Uncomfortably Dark to keep the brands separate.
