"When we launched Hasslein Books, we wanted to be able to offer science fiction, adventure and horror fans the types of books we've always enjoyed reading, as we are, first and foremost, fans ourselves," said Handley, "and our first two offerings—the Planet of the Apes books—have been very successful. Now, we're starting to grow, with nine upcoming titles in various stages of planning, from such popular authors as Alan J. Porter, David A. McIntee and Jim Beard. With that in mind, it's time for us to get the word out to more genre fans."
Paul C. Giachetti, Hasslein Books' art director and co-founder, added, "Social media is a powerful business tool, and we're excited at the prospect of growing our presence on Twitter and Facebook. Joining our online communities is a great way to gain awareness of what we're doing—and, best of all, everyone who does so will have a chance to win one of our existing reference books. With our Web site soon to undergo some major changes—it's going to look amazing—now is a good time for us to offer people some free stuff."
