My new post today is about changes in the publishing industry and their effects. One of the things that shocked me was the amount of books that are returned and pulped. In Canada alone that equates to 600,000 trees per year for books that no-one ever reads, and remember, the US publishing industry is 20 times larger.

Oh and I also wrote a haiku about questionable taxidermy practices in the UK: http://davidgaughran.wordpress.com

Today's post is about everyone's favourite topic, money. People always ask how much an author makes, per copy. I break down the figures, and show why this is the wrong question. Digital vs Print vs Self-Publishing royalty rates are compared, and the reasons why corporate publishers are holding back the digital tide are explained.

Well, I went ahead and started one. But I'm not sure if it counts, since I just post short stories related to my work. They feature characters from my novels, and serve as a sort of introduction to each character's personality. Again, not sure if it counts as a true "blog," as its main purpose is to get people interested in my work.

Also, since today was my first post and I was kind of unsure of how everything worked, I simply took a somewhat familiar theme and put a new spin to it as a way to develop the focal character. The next story is a bit more original, but I'm saving that for tomorrow. Here's the site if you want to take a look: http://harbingercodex.blogspot.com/

Let me know what you think! Constructive criticism is always helpful.

"Dragon's Ark" by Thomas Burchfield is Now Out!

Post by Thomas Burchfield » April 11th, 2011, 9:47 pm

THEY SAY HE DIED IN THE LAND BEYOND THE FOREST . . . BUT THEY WERE WRONG!

DRAGON’S ARK
A Novel of Terror by Thomas Burchfield

For over a century, Dracula—the King of Nightmares, the Superman of Evil—has been quietly casting his dark and impish dreams in the sleeping souls of a High Sierra community, who only know him as the eccentric old recluse who lives under the forbidding peak known as Dragon’s Ark. But now, facing a modern world bent on cleansing the shadows from his enchanting, haunted world, the Vampire King brings a dying woman back from the brink and ensnares her in a grim, ruthless struggle with resort developers over the future of his mountain kingdom.

Dragon’s Ark is a weird, thrilling, and violent tale of supernatural power, intrigue, betrayal, and surreal bloody revenge that follows a fabulous legend’s bizarre and bloodthirsty quest to preserve his life and power against the dreamless light of the 21st century.

“Like a tightrope artist, Thomas Burchfield seems eerily at home walking the fine line between the comfortably familiar and the terrifying. His characters—people you'll recognize, and like—have all blundered much too close to the portal of the unknown. And what resides beyond that portal makes Hell look like Club Med. Dragon's Ark is not a book to read just before nodding off. Unless you're on very good terms with your nightmares.”

—David Corbett, author of Do They Know I’m Running?

“Burchfield muscles his way into Stephen King country, like he’s Bram Stoker taking a stab at writing Our Town — the sort of entertainment where you transport Transylvania to the mountainous peaks of California. Population: a large and diverse cast of characters. Then grab a seat, in anticipation of the first droplets of blood”

―Don Herron, author of The Dashiell Hammett Tour Book and Willeford

"Thomas Burchfield is a world-class master of suspense and makes a heavy statement on the blood-sucking exploitation that goes on all around us. Dracula not only lives in our world, he is our world. With a language clear and beautiful as a sunset, Burchfield leads you down the path of darkness"
—John-Ivan Palmer, author of Motels of Burning Madness

Now available from Ambler House Publishing for order through your independent bookstore, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Watch for the e-book edition at the end of April!
