Bare Knuckle Sandwich
First, I want to thank Charles, over at Razored Zen. His decision to publish his short story collection Killing Trail for the Kindle format made a little light bulb go on over my head. Way I'm feeling lately, the natural thing to do was to smash the bulb and use the jagged shards to go for the jugular. :-)
You see, I've got four out-of-print graphic novels and four or maybe five novels that for one reason or another aren't quite right for my agent. Thanks to Charles, it occured to me that while the lovely and talented Agent Anne shops those novels that do suit her, I can be out there selling everything else.
A thriller/modern-day western
A graphic novel about love and second chances, told against a backdrop of sex and gunfire
A supernatural thriller featuring black magic, vengeful ghosts and... tattoos?
A graphic novel featuring the modern-day Knights Templar.
A zombie novel
Two graphic novels about bad love, set in pre-Katrina New Orleans
And a couple of erotic novels which are, quite frankly, filthy.
The plan right now is to roll them out on Kindle and Smashwords and maybe even that AmazonPOD thing I keep hearing about.
I like how Charles calls his publishing effort Razored Zen Press. Looking for a name to unite such a disparate body of work, the choice is obvious:
Bare Knuckle Press!
