JOURNEY INTO 2021 AND BEYOND
Happy New Year!
Despite a raging pandemic and a world gone mad, 2020 with Eerie River Publishing, was a year of growth. We were able to meet the demand and intensity of the world around us and find our legs within the chaos.
With a strong author group that supported and pushed us forward, were able to create and release our signature anthology series "It Calls From", starting with "It Calls from the Forest", and complete a much anticipated dark fantasy series "With Blood and Ash" and "With Bone and Iron" releasing soon.
With all that and more behind us, 2021 is gearing up to be our most ambitious year yet! We have multiple anthologies in both horror and dark fantasy releasing, live author events, open calls planned - starting with “It Calls from the Doors”, an LGBTQ+ anthology called “Of Fire and Stars” (planned for June), audiobooks, as well as single-authored novels and novellas coming out by some amazing authors.
But even with all of those successes, as you can imagine 2020 has been a hard year for the indie publishing world. In this uncertain and tumultuous time, all of us have seen the brunt of the pandemic in sales and revenue. However, paying our authors a decent amount has been our number one priority, even when that meant not paying ourselves and devoting everything to our authors, artists and editor.
That is exactly why we have decided to run a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo.
Our only goal for this campaign is to continue to offer paid opportunities for our authors while we grow and create top quality anthologies. This is why 100% of the funds from this campaign will go directly to flat rate payments for stories published. With three main anthologies planned for the year, if we are able to reach our initial goal we will be able to increase our payment to a minimum of one cent per word for each story selected.
Sign up with no obligation for automatic updates and be entered into a draw for a surprise e-book bundle. Opening February 1st.
But even as we grow and move forward into the new year, our one and only goal still remains forever the same. Creating a paying market for indie authors.
