Stephen R. George eBooks coming soon
Rights to my novels reverted to me in 2014 after some back and forth with Zebra Books. I have recently started looking at publishing all my novels as eBooks. I’m currently considering a number of options to make this happen, but at this point am leaning toward working with Crossroad Press who seem to have a good track record of publishing eBooks in a variety of genres and formats.
Getting rights to the books back, however, doesn’t mean I have rights to the covers, no matter how much I would like to use them.
Back in the 1980s and 1990s, I cringed when I saw the covers that Zebra put on my books., not to mention the titles! I’ve mellowed over the years on that score, and now I have a real fondness for those lurid, embossed, over-the-top covers. Even some of the titles they put on the books seem more familiar than the titles I dreamed up. Zebra covers always seemed to suggest that horror was supposed to be fun. As Richard Laymon said, “A funhouse, not a charnel house.”
I don’t yet know what order the eBooks will appear, or even whether they will be published simultaneously. At the very least, I’m looking at making some of my favorites available as soon as possible:
- Near Dead
- Deadly Vengeance
- Bloody Valentine
- Seeing Eye
I’ll keep you posted.
