12 to Midnight, Books

Good News Shouldn’t Be ‘Buried’

I’ve been terribly remiss in talking about all that has been going on with Buried Tales of Pinebox, Texas.

For starters, the book has had two very favorable reviews so far. Jeff LaSalla, New York Speculative Fiction Examiner, wrote an excellent review in which he gave quite a bit of detail without spoiling any of the stories. Just this week, Todd Cash wrote a positive review on Flames Rising. He said (among other things) “This anthology also reminds readers and gamers of just how much fun Small Town America can be for the horror genre.”

The multi-talented Monica Valentinelli also produced a book trailer for Buried Tales.

We’re continuing to spread the word about the book, and I’ve been humbled by the support shown by friends, family, and fans of myself and my fellow contributors. If you’re in the mood, there’s another easy way you can help. If you visit the Amazon pages for the print and Kindle editions of the book, you can choose to “tag” the books with keywords. The more people who tag the book, the more likely it is to appear in communities related to those keywords. You can check the tags that are already there, or you can add your own. It only takes 30 seconds to do, and but it’s a big help in terms of increasing the book’s visibility at Amazon.

If you’re a gamer, 12 to Midnight has also announced a Buried Tales contest. Read the book, answer some questions, and win the entire 12 to Midnight catalog in PDF format. That’s $400 in RPG titles. Furthermore, once a week we’ll be posting clues to help out with some of the trickier questions.

Finally, if you’ve read the book, I would personally appreciate it if you’d take the time to write a short (or long!) review for whichever online retailer that sold it to you. Reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations are critical for small press, and your help in spreading the word can help make or break a book.

I got my copy when i got back from Dallas this weekend, by the way. Thank you very much. I’m looking forward to digging into it. It looks great, and promises to be entertaining as all get-out. Y’all inspire me.

I don’t think it’s a surprise to those of us who lived it that small-town Texas can be a terrfying and horrible place.
