The Evileye Family Grows

Last month, Evileye Books added Cullen Bunn & Shawn Lee to their roster with the Raze series. This month they expand again with John Urbancik‘s new series DarkWalker. You can find a more complete announcement on Indie Pulp, and the first book is due in May.

These are exciting times for the company. I may have been the first out of the gate, but these guys are bringing some strong work to the table, and I truly believe Evileye is going to be a force to be reckoned with in 2010 and beyond. They have big plans, and I wouldn’t have signed on for a multi-book deal if I didn’t think they could bring these plans to fruition.

It helps that Cullen, John and I all know one another, too. It’s starting to feel more like a studio than a company, and while there’s going to be a lot of crossover in our audiences, we also bring in our own groups of fans. It’s going to be a blast when we all have books out and we can man an Evileye table at a con.

Evileye isn’t done yet, either. Take a look in the back of The Pack: Winter Kill for a hint of what’s to come. Like I said, exciting times!

About Mike Oliveri

Mike Oliveri is a writer, martial artist, cigar aficionado, motorcyclist, and family man, but not necessarily in that order. He is currently hard at work on the werewolf noir series The Pack for Evileye Books.

The Pack: So Far, So Good

It’s not been a bad first week for The Pack: Winter Kill. Evileye Books tell me our new ads have pushed a lot of traffic, and our Amazon rank jumped into a respectable range for a brand new small press book from a brand new publisher. It’s tapered off a bit now, but that’s hardly surprising given we’re getting right up on Christmas.

Evileye has also announced the next member of the family, Cullen Bunn. The writer of Oni’s The Damned has teamed up with Shawn Lee to create the apocalyptic fantasy series Raze. Like The Pack, Raze will feature both prose work and graphic novels and will launch with webcomics early in 2010. Check out some early teaser artwork by Jeff Wamester on the Evileye Books site.

That’s not all Evileye has up their sleeve. If you have a copy of TP:WK, flip to the last couple of pages and you’ll see a list of titles to be announced soon. They’ve done a great job recruiting talent and picking up properties, and I’m looking forward to these books every bit as much as you will be. (That said, Evileye can still use some artists — check out Evileye’s contact page for more info.)

As for The Pack, I’ll be turning in the latest version of the first graphic novel, Chimaera, shortly, and then I’ll get to work on the next prose book. It doesn’t have a title yet, but it will be a thriller with a supernatural horror element, just like Winter Kill. I think you’re going to dig it.
