I'm not sure what day of the week it is, but everything's fine here. Great. Yes. Nothing to worry about except its 90 degrees outside and Covid19 continues to blaze across the U.S.
I do have good things to talk about too. FAIREST FLESH has received some sweet blurbs from two authors I greatly admire, Paul Tremblay and Sara Tantlinger. So you can imagine I'm over the moon and am filled with gratitude that they both took time out their very busy schedules to read my debut. These blurbs give me life. Here's what they had to say:
“Deftly mashing together notorious historical figures, feminism, and the grimmest of fairy tales, FAIREST FLESH is as brutally horrifying as it is mesmeric. Consider me a K.P. Kulski fan for life.” Paul Tremblay,author of A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS and SURVIVOR SONG
That's right. I'm going hang this over my computer to remind myself that Paul is a fan. Holy shit!
“In K.P. Kulski’s Fairest Flesh, historical horror and blood-soaked fairy tales coalesce to form a world entirely its own. If you think you know the story of Countess Elizabeth Báthory, wait until you see what Kulski has in store. This book holds nothing back, and once you fall into the dark clutches of Kulski’s writing, you won’t be able to stop reading. Each dynamic character is full of sins and humanity alike; their desires will bleed into your soul, refusing to set you free until you know how it ends. Within, you will become ensnared by witchcraft and teeth, massacre and secrets…how prepared are you to step into this world where blood stains the snow?” Sara Tantlinger, Bram Stoker Award Winning author of THE DEVIL'S DREAMLAND
I love it when I darkly clutch. But seriously, Sara gets me and she gets FAIREST FLESH.
I also want to mention that Paul Tremblay's new book SURVIVOR SONG is out TODAY (checks calendar, holy shit it's Tuesday).
Sara Tantlinger's new poetry collection CRADLELAND OF PARASITES has a special edition and you can pre-order it NOW. I highly recommend since those copies aren't going to last long.
Rooster Republic Press will be taking pre-orders for the special edition of FAIREST FLESH beginning August 1st.
The great Nicolas Day has been working on art for the special edition and he's released this great sneak peek.
I can't wait to share with you the full images in the special edition, they are absolutely perfect. Stay tuned for cover art in the near future.
While all this craziness continues, I've finished a novella, am working on shorts and am revising a novel. Also grading papers for students in my history course.
Today is my 13th wedding anniversary. Lucky 13. Bring on the cake and champagne.
