-- Author Bryan W. Alaspa has announced that he has signed a deal to release his new horror novel "Vicious" via publisher SalGad Publishing Group, based out of the UK. This is the first time a publisher has agreed to a deal to release one of Mr. Alaspa’s novels. Mr. Alaspa has been independently publishing his fiction works for Kindle and e-readers for some time now, and says he hopes this partnership will take his writing to more people and to new levels.
“The folks at SalGad really seem to get what authors need and want and their stated goal is to allow authors to make a living at writing their books and that’s definitely something that interests me,” said the author from his Chicago offices. “They really seem to get authors and they seem to understand the changing face of the publishing world. So far, working with them even at this early stage has been great and I am tremendously excited to see where things go and how they help market my book. I am hoping this is the start of a very long and fruitful relationship.”
“Vicious is a unique and well-written novel that we believe fills a gap in the current horror genre that has been left wide open since the release of ‘Cujo’,”
said SalGad’s CEO, Sally Stote. “We are happy to work with Bryan and feel he has a successful future ahead of him and we are excited about sharing it with him.”
Mr. Alaspa’s horror novel is entitled Vicious and the ebook will be available for purchase sometime in mid-October - just in time for Halloween. The print edition should be ready by Christmas.
This has been a busy year for Mr. Alaspa. He has written and published three books so far in 2012. He released a collection of short stories in the spring entitled “Flashpoint:
A Collection of Curious Beginnings and Endings.” Mr. Alaspa then published his true crime book, “Sabotage:
A Chronicle of the Chesterton Crash” mid-summer. He then released his first hard-boiled detective novel in August entitled “Deklan Falls: One Against Many,” and says he hopes to find a publisher for that one, as well.About Bryan W. Alaspa
