"Lighthearted, informative, and engaging, Jennifer Brozek's Industry Talk: An Insider's Look at Writing RPGs and Editing Anthologies focuses on RPG freelancing and anthology editing, but has much to offer any beginning author or editor seeking an understanding of the publishing business. And while this slim volume may not answer every question a seasoned industry veteran might come up with, Brozek's glimpse behind the curtain and sharing of her freelance and editorial processes is greatly appreciated. Industry Talk is the book of secret wisdom I wish I'd had access to before publishing The Book of Cthulhu." -Ross E. Lockhart

Things are moving apace here at Apocalypse Ink Productions. We decided we needed to shift release dates for our books around. First, Children of Anu, the second book in the Karen Wilson Chronicles by Jennifer Brozek, will be released in May 2013. Second, Jay Lake’s Process of Writing will be released in August 2013.
This is mostly because the editing on Jay’s book is going slow. Our editor wants to make sure that the edits she needs to make to change ten years’ worth of blog posts into coherent chapters meets with Jay’s approval. Also, with Jay’s forthcoming medical procedures, AIP does not want to put undue stress on Jay or his schedule when it comes time for edit requests and additional writing. Jay and AIP discussed this and decided pushing the book out a couple of months was best for everyone.
Famished: The Commons, the second book in the Gentleman Ghouls series by Ivan Ewert, is still scheduled for an October 2013 release.

Short and sweet reviews for our Apocalypse Ink Production books on Amazon:
Industry Talk - five stars
"This book contains a number of essays about two specific fields: Role-Playing Game Freelance Writing and Editing Anthologies. It was though the author had been looking over my shoulder and decided to help me out by giving advice for all of my pending projects. If you are interested in either topic, I highly recommend this book." -Jason Andrew
Famished: The Farm - five stars
"I don't normally read the horror genre, but this book kept me riveted to the very end! Highly recommend to anyone who loves to be scared and horrified!!" -Kelly S. Madsen
Caller Unknown - five stars
"I was surprised at how well this was written. It was complete in and of itself while fitting into a series (or so it is advertised -- I plan to find out by reading the series). You can read more than enough about the plot or the setting. I just wanted to confirm it is carried off well without gratuitous sex or other miscellaneous material. Two thumbs up." -S. Marsh

Both Ivan Ewert and Jennifer Brozek have talked about their "Next Big Thing" in blog posts. As it happens, both of these are AIP projects.
Jennifer talks about The Children of Anu in her post.
Ivan talks about Famished: The Commons in his post.
Bonus! Ivan talks about a local eatery naming a sandwich after his book series that sounds very tasty.

Cat Rambo gave Jennifer Brozek's Caller Unknown a lovely blurb today. Remember, you can buy the book from AIP and get the hard copy book signed.
"Brozek gives us the world the way it should be - full of hidden pockets of magic, ancient evils, and supernatural creatures - along with a heroine fully capable of dealing with all of the above."
- Cat Rambo, author of Near + Far and A Seed Upon the Wind

Ivan, author of FAMISHED: THE FARM, talks about "giving thanks" and writing acknowledgements on his blog. While Jennifer, author of CALLER UNKNOWN, talks about her "gratitude" for the disasters in her life that brought her to where she is today. Those of us at Apocalypse Ink Productions would like to thank everything who has supported us thus far and will support us in the future. We appreciate every single one of you.

"This collection isn't really a collection. It's a novel told through a series of short stories; very much like a mosaic work. In general, it's a very effective way to tell Karen's story. Each chapter is punchy, fast-paced and action packed. Sometimes, though, I wanted to know more about what was happening - the stories that occurred between each chapter. Fortunately, the collection had a bonus story at the end, which helped sastify some of the questions I had developed."
- Amanda Pillar, editor of Bloodstones
"While there's a lot of worldbuilding and some really interesting twists on classic genre themes, it feels like there's even more going on. It feels like there's a world beyond the page."
- Steven Saus, author, editor, publisher
