Hello, reader. You may notice a few new ads around the place. We’ve got a new Instagram/twitter ad campaign rolling out for The Disgraced Martyr Trilogy, along with quite a lot of other exciting things in the works. M. F. Sullivan will be doing a live tarot reading/book reading/raffle on Painted Blind Publishing’s twitch.tv page. Nothing is set up yet, but follow us at https://www.twitch.tv/paintedblindpublishing and sign up for alerts so you won’t forget the May 20th, 2019 reading! First twenty users in the room to request it will get a three-card tarot reading. Then, M. F. Sullivan will read Chapter 1 of The Hierophant’s Daughter, and after we’ll have a raffle for prizes ranging from a $35 Amazon giftcard to a collection of M. F. Sullivan hardbacks–maybe even a few skincare products if we see a lot of ladies there.
Finally, in an overdue announcement, it is our pleasure to share that M. F. Sullivan’s short story, “The Remedy”–the basis for an upcoming series of techno-noir novels speculatively titled The Jacob Dorn Series–was selected by the judges of L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future contest for an honorable mention. Sullivan is very proud of the story and the achievement, and looks forward to actually placing in something soon.
So that’s all for now, but keep checking back. That Philip K. Dick essay really is in the works–you try reading fifteen books and his Exegesis while also finishing your own trilogy and tell us how quickly you get through it all–so you won’t want to miss that!
