About

Monsters in Spaaaace!

2019

The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Mission.

The 40th anniversary of the classic horror film Alien.

One year after the proposal of the US Space Force.

How could we not create a collection of space themed horror?

What We Are Doing

Jason, the Leprechaun, even the Cenobites and the Critters ended up going into space. We decided it was time to give some other monsters that same chance.

Earlier this year we started accepting submissions for an anthology featuring classic monsters with the stories set in space. We have collected 16 stories and one poem that we think you are really going to enjoy.

And by enjoy we mean scare the space suit off of you.

Who We Are

Logo
Logo

Dragon's Roost Press is a small publisher based in Michigan. We are dedicated to bringing readers the best dark speculative fiction. Our catalog includes four previous multi-author anthologies, single-author collections, and both adult and YA novels. 

Desolation
Desolation

All of our publications are available as trade paperbacks via Amazon and a number of independent bookshops. They are also available for Kindle, Nook, iBooks, and other digital formats.

Eldritch Embraces
Eldritch Embraces

We also attend a number of conventions throughout the Midwest as vendors and guest speakers.

We have run successful crowdfunding campaigns on both Indiegogo and Kickstarter. The most recent was for the 2018 publication of our cryptid anthologies, Hidden Menagerie Vols 1 and 2.

Hidden Menagerie Double
Hidden Menagerie Double

A portion of the proceeds from our anthologies sales benefits the Last Day Dog Rescue Organization, a canine and feline rescue group which adopts animals from high kill shelters and fosters them until they can be adopted into their forever families.

What We Need

We are looking to raise at least $2000 in the next 30 days. This will allow us to pay the authors at least 3 cents/word, pay for cover art, and help defray some of the production costs. We would ultimately like to raise enough to pay the authors a professional rate of 6 cents/word.

What You Get

Amazing fiction, natch. Depending upon your level of support, you will receive copies of the current anthology, other works published by Dragon's Roost Press, and more. 

What You Can Do

First off, click on one of those support links. It may not seem like much, but believe us when we say every little bit counts.

We understand that not everyone has the ability to support the project financially. You can still help! Get the word out through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and whatever other social media platforms have sprung up since the last time we looked. Tell people about what we are trying to accomplish. 

Add Ons

Are you new to the Dragon's Roost Press family? Do you have some of our books but just learned how extensive our catalog is and want to get your hands on more horror goodness? Fear not (we only want you to be scared by the fiction). You can add additional titles to your pledge level by adding additional funds to your pledge. Additional e-books will be $5 and additional paperbacks an additional $10 (plus s/h in the case of paperbacks).

How does it work? It's super easy. Let's say you want to get a digital copy of the new anthology plus two more e-books. Simply pledge at the level Mummy level and then add an additional $10 to the total. Once the campaign is finished, we will be sending out a survey. At this time you will be able to select which titles you would like.

Thank You

We appreciate the time you have taken to look over our Kickstarter. Please visit us at the Dragon's Roost Press blog, check out our previous releases on Amazon, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

And, of course, thank you for your support.

Stretch Goals!

$3000

If we reach the $3K mark, every backer at the Ghoul level and above will receive their choice of an additional digital book from the Dragon's Roost Press catalog. This will allow us to pay our authors a professional rate to 6 cents per word.

Risks and challenges

As with any endeavor, there are potential problems which can arise. In the world of publishing, especially small press publishing, these most often come in the form of delays. We have already anticipated some of these potential problems and addressed them. All of the stories we have accepted for the anthology have been written and are currently being edited. We have already contacted our potential cover artist.
Dragon’s Roost Press has an established history of publishing both anthologies of short stories and novel length fiction.
