Books of the Dead has hired John Taff to help with sales and marketing.
“I can honestly say that I am extremely excited to have John on board, and I look forward to working with him in the future,” says owner James Roy Daley.
“So, we all know that Books of the Dead Press is one of the most exciting, cutting-edge horror publishers around. Right?.” says Taff. “I mean, this year alone, BOTD has released eight well-received horror books, ranging from anthologies to novels to single-author collections; from classics like Gary Brander’s The Howling Trilogy, to horror industry veterans, like New York Times bestselling author, Tim Lebbon, as well as up-and-coming authors like Tonia Brown.”
Taff, in addition to being one of BOTD’s stable of authors, is a 20-year veteran author with more than 70 shorts and several novels in print. Four honorable mentions in Datlow & Windling’s Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror. And Little Deaths has been recommended for the 2012 Stoker Reading List.
“Over and above that, though – and what is more important to Roy – is that I have more than 25 years worth of experience in marketing, advertising, public relations and trade publishing,” adds Taff. “I’ve worked for agencies and publishing companies, I can do publicity and media relations and I know how to get stuff covered. So, I’ve got some experience in publishing, and a lot of experience marketing magazines and books.”
Any questions about Books of the Dead Press, its titles or authors, should be directed to Taff in the future. [email protected].
