From Otherworld Publications, my publisher:
Otherworld Publications of Louisville, KY is thrilled to announce the signing of author Nik Korpon for the release of Stay God in December of 2010.
Nik has been published in numerous magazines and journals, including 3:AM, Out of the Gutter Cause and Effect, Gold Dust, Colored Chalk, Troubadour21, Sex and Murder, The Mechanics Institute Review, short-story.me and Sideshow Fables, as well as the upcoming Shadow Kindred Anthology from Living Dead Press. His novella Old Ghosts is currently being serialized on Troubadour 21.com. He also has a chapbook forthcoming in late 2010. He reviews books for the Outsider Writers Collective, co-hosts Last Sunday, Last Rites, a monthly reading series in Baltimore, and is a Fiction Editor for Rotten Leaves Magazine. Somewhere between all of that, he is writing his second novel.
ABOUT STAY GOD
Damon lives a content life, playing video games and dealing drugs from his second-hand store while his girlfriend, Mary, drops constant hints about marriage. If only he could tell her his name isn’t really Damon. If only he could tell her who he really is. But after he witnesses a friend’s murder, a scarlet woman glides into his life, offering the solution to all of his problems. His carefully constructed existence soon shatters like crystal teardrops and he must determine which ghosts won’t stay buried—and which ones are trying to kill him—if he wants to learn why Mary has disappeared.
I’m incredibly excited to be with Otherworld. They are a husband and wife team. Very smart, well connected, and they care about books for the sake of books. It’s something we don’t see very often anymore and I’m proud to be a part of it.
More details to follow as I get them. There should be 100 limited edition hardcovers printed, then a larger run of paperbacks and e-reader things. We’ll also have some promotional stuff, and I’m hoping to do a few readings with my good friend and label-mate Richard Thomas. The first two chapters are available to sample on the right side of this page. More to come.
