What are You Thankful For?

Posted in A Writer's Life, Get To Know The Characters!, New Releases with tags , , , , , , , on 11-21-2012 by jeffreymartinsnovels

Thanksgiving. What a great way to kick off the holiday season. A day devoted to being thankful for the blessings we have in our lives.

This year, I have a lot to be thankful for. I’ve got a supportive family, a rewarding job, and a comfortable home. And this year has been great for me as a writer, too: I’ve had several short stories released and, most recently, the final stages have come to pass on my new publication, Weaving Evil. (I know, it’s been way too long for you devoted fans.) I’ve also been blessed with thousands of “new” fans to call my own…lol, along with the numerous bookstores carrying my work. Not much more that a working writer could ask for!

As you prepare the holiday turkey and all the traditional festivities, and prepare for the upcoming surge of early Xmas shopping joy, I urge all of my readers to take a moment to contemplate just exactly what you all are thankful for. With that, I bid you all a memorable and wonderful Thanksgiving. 🙂

Until next time…remember, death is only a cluck away…oh, wait, I mean…a click away. (Gobble didn’t really work with this.) ;0

Cupid’s Kill, Part 1

Posted in Just For Fun!, New Releases with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 02-5-2012 by jeffreymartinsnovels

In the next week, I will be releasing part one of my latest short story, “Cupid’s Kill” on Kindle and in several other ebook formats. As a bonus, it will be part of my publisher’s celebration of the opening of their ebook short story line. I will be spotlighted February 12-18, and the story will be available as a FREE download during the “We love our Readers!” week. Stay tuned for how to get your free copy!

Death arrives in diverse delivery methods.

One in particular is a plague to the detectives of the Marcona Police Department. A monster has returned, and he won’t rest until his vengeance is complete. Armed with a paralyzing concoction and the tools of his trade, he targets a select few to add to his collection.

Chief Mark Blankenship, along with detectives Brian Jeffers and Kelli Jordan, face off against the madman, hoping to end his bloody path of destruction.

Unfortunately, they haven’t anticipated the killer will sacrifice at all costs, making one of them his prized token…

Cold Moon Press Looking for “A Few Great Submissions”

Posted in General Information, Get To Know The Characters!, New Releases with tags , , , , , on 09-27-2011 by jeffreymartinsnovels

Today, finds me very under the weather, but I wanted to get this out to “all” you potential candidates! Cold Moon Press, (my publisher) is having a call for submissions for an upcoming anthology, and I wanted those who have interest, get a shot at it. Send them your best work, and hopefully you will be rewarded with a reserved spot in the editor’s heart. Okay, enough from me today, I need to get back to resting, so I can finish my upcoming release, Cupid’s Kill!  I will post a little this weekend from my current digital release, so stay tuned and remember…Death is only a click away!

Here’s the deets on the submission!

Cold Moon Press is excited to
announce guidelines for the first volume of their annual anthology, Walking
Down the Sky.

The Fun Stuff

Volume One (to be subtitled later)
will focus on the full moon as viewed by other cultures, such as the Cold Moon
in December (or January, depending which culture you explore). What would happen
in your story during Hungry Ghost Moon? Who would your main character meet
during the Moon of Winds? (If you need help getting started, use your search
engine to find “full moon names,” and you’ll find plenty of ideas!). Poetry and
art submissions should also incorporate this theme.

We want stories for each month of
the year, and one bonus story, for a total of 13 titles. We prefer urban
fantasy, fantasy, science fiction, and horror. While the tone of this anthology
is dark (and we are ok with not-so-happy endings), we are trying to keep this
rated PG-13. Therefore, work that is explicitly sexual or violent would be best
suited for a different publication.

Note: If your story is exceptional
and we have already filled the space for the month you are exploring, we may
still be interested in publication. We are opening a short story line for the
press this fall. Your work may be considered for this. More details will be
available soon!

Last few “official” days to submit to our anthology to meet our deadline of October 1.

Goings on at Cold Moon Press

Posted in Just For Fun! with tags , , , , , , , , on 05-1-2011 by bookmarkit01

It has been a busy few weeks here at Cold Moon Press. As a new independent publisher, there is always so much to do (in a good way). One thing I can say without hesitancy: I am truly never bored!

One thing I love is being challenged. The last few weeks have offered many wonderful opportunities to learn new things, expand my skill set, and promote the press and its wonderful authors.

For example, at the end of this month, Vonnie Winslow Crist and I will be presenting at Balticon, an amazing conference in the Baltimore area. As a bonus, attendees will be receiving a gorgeous keepsake program, and we’ve secured an ad for our press and current authors. Since many of you aren’t in the area, I thought I might share what our half-page ad will look like. And if you are lucky enough to attend, you’ll find a wonderful surprise when you see the ad for Vonnie’s book, The Greener Forest. It will definately be an engaging treat for readers! So during the last few weeks, I’ve been working on creating advertising, designing promotional materials, and preparing to present.

Next month, Cold Moon Press opens for its first multi-author anthology, Walking Down the Sky. This anthology opens for submissions at the beginning of June and will contain our favorite 13 stories that feature the moon. We hope that if you write urban fantasy, fantasy, scifi, or horror you will consider submitting to us…click on the link above to read the guidelines. The project will be released late fall to coincide with Cold Moon Press’s first anniversary. I’ve been planning and working with some great authors to get their feedback on the project.

We have also been spending time preparing formal marketing plans for distribution. Seasoned writers know that there is a lot of work to be done after the last word is written on the page. Furthermore, authors like our very own Jeffrey Martin know the value in forming a partnership with their publisher to make sure their book is successful. Many, many thanks to him for all his hard work and patience. I’ve been learning so much about the business side of books and their promotion! (And make sure you pick up a copy of Jeff’s book here!).
