(CAPE CORAL, FL) Media Service Innovations, Inc, announced on Monday that author Joseph M. Monks’ current e-book project, teaser uploads for the upcoming GRAVE CHOICES anthology, has been temporarily suspended due to a medical emergency, but will be resumed in time for Christmas. According to Pamela Hazelton, “There have been family health issues going on behind the scenes. This past week it came to a head and made it impossible to continue the promotion and scheduling for the project. We’ll be resuming uploads, and adding bonus material for those who have been supporting the project since it launched in October.”
The promotion, a 12-weeks-of-Christmas lead-up, was to include eight teaser tales from the anthology, due out in Spring 2014. The anthology will contain both prose stories and illustrated stories, including a great deal of never-before-published material. Said Monks of the delay, “There’s only so much you can do, and at this point rather than short-shrift the project by
just auto-loading uploads for Kindle and Nook, we’re going to let the family issues settle down, and make sure everyone will be happy with the end product we put out.”
The eight stories that will be uploaded prior to the book’s release next year were to have been pulled on Dec. 31st, as was the collection which would have packaged Monks’ debut novel, Torn to Pieces, his all-zombie anthology DEAD MEAT, and the pre-release of GRAVE CHOICES. The plan now, according to Monks, is to make the stories available through early January, and to increase the time period the package deal on all three books will be
available, at a substantially reduced cover price.
“Ebook readers have been popular gifts for the past few years,” noted Hazelton. “We’re going to do everything possible to ensure that if yn. Or, if you get one for yourself, you can pack it with over a thousand pages of suspense, fantasy and horror fiction for less than five bucks. Our gift to readers and fans.”
No details are currently being released concerning the health crisis, and the publisher and author request that no questions be made about that at this time.
