Once again, huge thanks to everyone who has bought my books this month. February’s sales have been incredible, the best ever. It’s always encouraging to hear how so many of you are excited for Red Litten World and the following books in the series. I can’t wait to share them with everyone.
February has been a great month for me and for The Stars Were Right: hundreds of new readers, really positive press, and some great emails from readers. There’s plenty of reason to celebrate.
Last Sunday, while I was being interviewed for this weeks episode of Seattle Geekly, I mentioned the 99¢ sale and then immediately realized that it would air after the sale ended. Oh no! Thankfully, one of the benefits of being in control of my own marketplace is being able to extend sales at a whim. So, in celebration of the upcoming episode of Seattle Geekly, the month of February, and so many new folks reading The Bell Forging Cycle, I’m extending the 99¢ ebook sale through the end of the month! Tell your friends and nab a copy for yourself from any of these ebook platforms:
Kindle • Kobo • Nook • iBooks • GooglePlay • DRM Free ePub
Sale ends February 28 (for reals this time,) then The Stars Were Right will returns to it’s regular price of $2.99.
The holiday season is upon us! If you’re a fan of the Cthulhu Mythos or have someone on your list, who is I figured it’d be helpful to put together a little gift guide linking to some of my favorite Lovecraftian merchandise from across the web.
I’ve organized the list by category and ordered them by price. So that should make it easy to browse. Have a favorite new weird or mythos-themed item I left off? Leave a comment and let us know!
The Witching Elm by C.N. Crawford
$.99 (Digital Pre-order)
I heard about C. M. Crawford’s debut novel recently and while it’s not specifically Lovecraftian it definitely seems like something a reader of mythos and new weird would enjoy. I mean: talking ravens, bone-wardens, and other worlds? Sounds great, sign me up.
The Atrocity Archives by Charles Stross
$7.99 + Free Shipping (Print) $7.60 (eBook)
Meet Bob Howard, a computer hacker who ends up working for the secret British organization: The Laundry. But this isn’t your typical super secret agency, instead of terrorism The Laundry that faces off against something much stranger.
Maplecroft by Cherie Priest
$11.00 + Free Shipping (Print) $7.99 (eBook)
I picked this up on a whim after listening to an interview with Priest on the Seattle Geekly Podcast, and I loved it. Priest’s new-mythos tale spins a yarn about madness, fear, and the sea using the historical character Lizzie Borden as the protagonist. I look forward to more.

$12.60 + Free Shipping (Paperback) $2.99 (eBook)

Old Broken Road by K. M. Alexander
$12.50 + Free Shipping (Paperback) $5.99 (eBook)
My latest Lovecraft-influenced urban fantasy novel: Old Broken Road picks up a year after the events in the previous book and follows Wal and his friends as they travel down an abandoned road full of dark apparitions, bizarre monsters, and ancient evils.

Cthulhu by Cryo Chamber Collaboration
$7.00 (Digital Download) $15.00 + Shipping (CD)
If you’re into ambient music, I highly recommend this collaboration from the dark ambient label Cryo Chamber. Themed around Cthulhu this album is drenched in distant echoes and vast chambers that will put you in the mood for terror.
Reliquiae by Atrium Carceri
$7.00 (Digital Download)
This haunting album is the soundscape I’d turn on when writing Old Broken Road. Heavy with mood I found myself loving every minute of it. (It’s also my go-to soundtrack when my friends and I play Mansions of Madness.)

This beautiful 3″ patch, designed by illustrator Sean Cumiskey, is the perfect way of declaring your loyalty to your beloved caravan master. Put it on your backpack, a tote, or display it on the sleeve of your jacket, just make sure the world knows.

Winter has settled into the mountains, and the ski resorts are opening. It’s good to protect one’s face while shredding the slopes. Terrify other skiers and snowboarders in a handcrafted ski mask made by the Mad Knitter in a disturbing shade of Cthulhu green.
The Last Door Collectors Edition
$9.99 (Digital Download) FREE (In-Browser)
I don’t play many video games these days, but I absolutely loved this old school adventure game. Heavily influenced by turn-of-the-century horror and the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, The Last Door, places you in the center of a dark mystery.
Mansions of Madness
$60.00 + Free Shipping
My wife can attest how obsessed I’ve become with this board game. It’s a blast. Investigators have to solve a mystery while the Keeper tries to kill them off. The perfect blend of Lovecraft and action adventure. A lot of fun.
Miskatonic University Mug
$15.00 + Shipping
One of my favorite mugs in my house, with a beautifully designed Miskatonic University seal. It’s also nice and big and, therefore, holds extra coffee (the secret to my power.) Comes in white or nightgaunt black… naturally.

The logo was based on a concept by Ray Frenden and illustrated by the talented Sean Cumiskey. Long time readers will remember that Sean did some amazing fan art for The Stars Were Right last year. After I saw it, I contacted him and asked if I could use the logo above the door for a Russel & Sons bookmark and he agreed. I loved his work so much that I hired him to work up the Bell Caravans logo. He hit the ball out of the park and the result is this incredible patch.
Check out more of Sean’s work at his website. He is available for freelance projects, and is open to commissions, so seriously consider hiring him if you’re looking for an illustrator on your own projects. I cannot recommend him enough.
