In a Handful of Dust...

As the ancient war between the old gods of Earth and their bitter enemies rises toward a final confrontation, Owen Merrill sets out from his new home in Arkham to Rhode Island, seeking the ultimate weapon in that war—the spells that might succeed in calling Great Cthulhu from his temple-tomb in drowned R’lyeh to fulfill the terrible prophecy of the Weird of Hali. The threads of evidence he and Jenny Chaudronnier have traced through years of hard work all lead to a young man named Charles Dexter Ward, who lived in Providence a century earlier and may have received copies of the rituals from the elderly scholar George Gammell Angell. 

As he plunges into the mysteries surrounding Ward and the rituals, he finds himself entangled in a web of peril reaching far beyond the urban landscape of Providence. The Starry Wisdom Church there is racked by rivalries no member will discuss, and the Radiance and the Fellowship of the Yellow Sign are closing in. Owen’s one hope lies with a young woman named Hannah Ward—Charles Dexter Ward’s great-granddaughter—who is in Providence on a mission of her own. She has learned the same terrible secrets of alchemy her great-grandfather mastered, and plans on using them to revive the one person on Earth who might know the location of the rituals Owen needs so badly: Charles Dexter Ward himself...

The Publisher is On Patreon

Dear Friends and Customers of Founders House Publishing:

In perhaps a very bold and certainly very modern move, I have created a Patreon page with the aim of obtaining the funding needed step into a full-time position as the Publisher at Founders House. Despite all of the growth the company has experienced in recent years, due in large part to the wonderful new books that have been added to our line of titles by authors John Michael Greer and others. 

Over the course of the nearly ten years Founders House Publishing has been in operations, my involvment has been limited and part-time for various reasons. Naturally, the biggest ones deal with the reality of the publishing production and sales cycles and the way cash flow works. There is always an amount of waxing and waning in monthly revenues, as with many business--as well as general levels of growth over time. 

Founders House is growing slowly. That has been the way I've wanted it because it has allowed me maintain a debt-free company the entire time. However, it has also been a primary goal to eventually operate my company in a more full-time capacity.

The rise of crowdfunding has at least provided the opportunity to reach this goal a little faster so I can put far more time and focus on building Founders House Publishing into an even more successful company and help other authors find their way to publication with someone who cares about good stories. 

So, I've come to Patreon. I've come to all of you for the partnership needed to make the transition.
