Two years ago I offered 10 lifetime subscription spots for $250 each. I have recently determined I can offer another 10 more after fielding inquiries from interested readers who have asked me if I am considering selling more subscriptions. With that in mind, here is the offer:
For a one-time fee of $250 you will receive one copy of every trade paperback, trade hardcover, or mass market book-length work (novel, collection), chapbook, graphic novel, or comic book I ever publish until you or I die or should either you or I become physically or mentally incapacitated due to age, accident, or illness (whichever comes first). In the event eBooks are made available to me, you will also receive the eBook version of the book in addition to the trade paperback, mass market paperback, or trade hardcover. Cover flats produced for promotional purposes are also included in the offer when they become available to me. There will be ten slots available. What will you get for your money? Here’s a taste:
Within the next three years no less than four books are scheduled to be released including Screaming to Get Out & Other Wailings of the Damned (a short story collection), Retreat (a novel), Up Jumped the Devil (a collection of four novellas), and an unwritten/untitled novel that will also serve as a sequel (of sorts) to an earlier novel, Survivor. In addition, four titles from my backlist are expected to be reissued within this time period in corrected, definitive editions. I’m 86 pages into a new novel called The Crossroads, which means there is the possibility it could be published within this time period as well. There have been talks with a publisher about compiling a collection of my non-fiction (primarily centered around my column “Shadows in the Attic”, currently appearing in Lamplight Magazine). There’s also other stuff in the years that follow—more novels in the Retreat series, stand-alone novels, more short story collections, a possible comic book series. In short, this is an offer that will provide you with a steady stream of my stuff for years and hopefully decades to come at a very low price.
But wait! There’s more!
Folks who join will be put on a special mailing list to receive news about new publications including novels, short story appearances, and anything else before the news is made available on my website or any of my social media channels. I’m also planning several freebies for the membership as well, everything from books from my own collection, to sneak-peak excerpts to works-in-progress.
Now for the disclaimers—Terms and Conditions: books will come flat-signed or personalized to you (whichever you prefer). This one time fee includes shipping and handling costs. This offer does not include limited editions, lettered editions, foreign editions, DVDs, audio-books, or other miscellaneous items. There are no international restrictions to this offer. This offer is open to anyone. Non-US residents must remit payment in the form of an international money order and must be payable in US currency. These lifetime subscriptions are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Payment must be rendered in full for the agreement to apply (to be fair, I cannot accept payment installments). Please provide an accurate mailing address, including an email address. If your physical or email address changes, you are responsible for notifying me of the change.
Email me a confirmation of your slot to jfgonzalez(at)jfgonzalez.com. I will respond with a confirmation and an address where to remit payment. I will hold your slot for ten (10) business days. If payment is not received by then, your slot will become available to another interested party.
Those who confirm their spots and remit payment before the end of the year will have the choice of receiving the trade paperback of the revised and author’s preferred version of When the Darkness Falls; this will be followed by the revised and author’s preferred version of Fetish. I should warn you that I am behind on my production schedule due to some unforseen personal circumstances that occurred earlier this year but I am working to catch up. The next new available titles will be the trade paperback edition of my forthcoming collection Screaming to Get Out & Other Wailings of the Damned, scheduled for March of 2014. My next novel, Retreat, will be published in late 2014 and Up Jumped the Devil will see publication in 2015. Salted in among all those releases will be reprints of my backlist in corrected and preferred editions; yes, you will get those, too (Primitive and Back From the Dead have gone out of print as trade paperbacks, so there is the possibility that once I have secured trade paperback reprint publication for them, they will be included in this reprint program).
There is no time limit on when this offer ends. The offer ends when all the slots are filled.
