I believe this project is completely separate from CD/LR and not an imprint. If it is, I apologize.

Just wanted to show my support for Brian by starting this thread and encourage others to join his Patreon campaign. I'm a big fan of Brian's work and foresee great things for him stemming from this. First chap from the press. Best of luck, Brian!

I'm already a Level 5 Supporter. I joined as soon as it was announced. I got number 27 of the chapbook. I've become a big fan of Patreon and support six people.

Sorry I missed this thread before! You are correct, LetterPress Publications is my own little press for publishing items for my supporters on Patreon, although there might be something else in the works for 2019 that I'm really excited about. We will see!

Hope it comes to be, Brian! I'll continue to post the things I get through Patreon if that's cool.

P.S. Hope the back is feeling better.

Opened my front door this morning for a quick run to the store and was surprised to see a package sitting on the mat. I had forgotten that Mr. Freeman was sending out a bonus for his Patreon subscribers this month. Very pleased to receive a signed paperback gift. As it is a book I already have a signed limited of I will be gifting this one to my niece, I believe she will enjoy the story. Thank you Brian!

In case anyone has missed the emails, one of projects Iíve been working on for my Patreon supporters (https://www.patreon.com/BrianJamesFreeman) is a serialized novel that will run for most of 2019.

Iíll be posting one chapter each week from The Echo of Memory, which is a heavily revised version of my first published novel. In 2004, the book was published as Black Fire by James Kidman. There was a paperback edition from Leisure and a signed Limited Edition hardcover from Cemetery Dance Publications, but Iím restoring my preferred title and my real name for all future editions.

Iíll be working through the revisions as I post the chapters, but the first 100 pages have already seen a ton of fine tuning and some serious excising of unnecessary material.

Yep, this is one of those very rare ďAuthorís Preferred EditionsĒ where stuff is being CUT out instead of crammed back in, and you wonít miss the things Iím editing out. They were the product of a first novelistís insecurities about readers and the publishing world in general. This is a book where ďless is moreĒ should have been the mantra. :)

Hey Brian, there must be something wrong with the messageboard. It says your post was at 03:17 AM. SURELY, nobody could be up at that time and able to post. I know,...stop calling you Shirley!!

I had our custom hand-binder take 10 hardcovers of my Patreon Stories: Volume One and rebind them with real leather, imported hand-marbled endpapers, etc, for my top level supporters, and I'm extremely pleased with the results! I took some quick photos tonight, which are probably too large, but I'm tired and Dan can tell at me or fix them tomorrow. ;)

Dear lord. So how does one go about procuring one of those?

Nevermind, I reread the post and got my answer. Makes me wish I was one of those Top Level Supporters! That book looks gorgeous.

I'm glad it arrived safely! The Lettered Edition of Volume 2 should have a much quicker turnaround time, too, now that I've figured out what I'm doing for the edition!

Thanks so much! This was kind of a test run for future Patreon Lettered Editions AND a pretty big surprise I have in the works... watch for a supporters-only update on Patreon really soon about that secret news! :)

Some of the letters are comps to friends and family who have supported me in other important ways. There are no "PCs" for this edition. It's either a letter or it doesn't exist. I figured for so few copies, why not, right? :)

Pretty cool idea actually. I received the letter L. Agree with Goon, it's a gorgeous production.

Maybe not quite the right spot to post this since it doesn’t have anything to do with Patreon, but since it does have to do with Brian’s work...

I just picked up the PS Pub WALKING WITH GHOSTS collection. Was hoping to pick up a signed/numbered/slipcased edition, but had to settle for the trade. Really looking forward to starting it.

I support Brian James Freeman and Jason Sechrest through Patreon and feel I get value from both of them. Both have options starting as low as $1.00 a month so hopefully you can find something that gives you value within your budget.
