Introducing Tulpa Books!

I’d like to begin by thanking a few people who convinced me that my work was worth bringing back, who encouraged me to release them myself, and who have helped me learn how to do it.  I’ve since immersed myself in the Indie Publishing world, but quietly, as a lurker.  Mouth shut, ears open, and hopefully learning.

There are others.  I know I missed some of you.  My brain is not yet working at peak efficiency, so please forgive me.

Now, to the meat of this announcement.  Two of Tulpa Books first three titles are going up for pre-order now and will be available on Amazon, Kobo, Nook, and maybe Ibooks (if I can get through the rat maze that is their vender account setup) on January 9, 2018.  I plan to bring them back in print too, but have not yet decided when.  Hopefully soon after the digital release.

The third will also release on January 9, 2018, but will be available only on KDP Select for the first three months.  It may go wide afterward depending on sales, or demand from readers from different storefronts.


Shannon Pitcher was trying to forget the brutal murder of her ex-husband and the loss of her only daughter, when fate brought her to a lost, scared little girl named Charity at the gate of an abandoned and haunted place called Feral Park.

Gordon Chambers has searched for his daughter for six years. Even when his estranged wife is found slaughtered and his daughter, Charity, disappears, hope remains in the form of strange dreams.

After years of living as prisoner of the fairytale monster that killed her mother, Charity has escaped, but the Bogeyman wants her back, and he will not stop until he has her. There is only one safe place for her now, but the price of safety will be more than her innocence, it will be her soul.

List price: $3.99.  On sale for 99 cents until January 18, 2018.

 

When a strange little girl is found drugged and abandoned in the rural Idaho town of Clearwater, madness and death follow.

Grim knows there’s something wrong with his new foster-sister, Angel, but he also knows what it’s like to be an outsider in the small insular town.  Michele feels the danger surrounding her new friend, Angel inspires violence with her mere presence, terror with a simple touch, but she’s also sweet, damaged, and all but alone.

As Angel’s health improves and her memories return, the hot Clearwater summer becomes increasingly strange and violent.  Insanity infects the small town, a shadowy figure lurking in the woods at night deals death, and no one is safe.

List price: $3.99.  On sale for 99 cents until January 18, 2018.

 

Vengeful revenants, ghost children, woodland zombies, and lustful, demonic toys are among the menagerie of small horrors showcased in Brian Knight’s first collection, Dragonfly.

Gripping, touching, and sometimes humorous, Dragonfly deals a powerful range of emotions from love to hate, hope and loss. Reviewers and readers alike have praised Dragonfly, which received four honorable mentions in The Years Best Fantasy & Horror.

Douglas Clegg (The Nightmare Chronicles & Bad Karma) says: “Brian Knight’s writing shines with a dark brilliance. Dragonfly is a chilling collection of terror.”

List price: $2.99.  Available only on KDP Select.

I will put pre-order links on Brian-Knight.com once all three books are available for preorder.


Future Tulpa Books from my backlist include a Monster Double Feature of Reservoir Gods and They Call Us Monsters, solo releases of Reservoir Gods and They Call Us Monsters, Hacks, and my neo-noir crime novel Sex, Death, and Honey.  You can help decide which I release first by participating in the poll at the bottom of the page.

Future original Tulpa Books include a new collection called Dangerous Toys, the sequel to Sex, Death, and Honey tentatively titled Cut to the Quick, a new horror novel tentatively titled The Girl Has Guts, and a horror novel called Hog Island.  Some of these may come out as limited edition hardcovers before Tulpa Books releases them.  I’ll let you know which, if any, and how to get them.

You can receive advance review copies of Tulpa Books titles by joining my Knightmares newsletter and responding in the affirmative when I make them available.

Thanks for joining me in this new adventure.
