BloodBoundBooks – BLOOD BANK

A recent post I’m sharing from BloodBoundBooks …

Blood Bank

Blood Bound Books is proud to announce our first charitable anthology: Blood Bank!

Charity is a cornerstone of our company, and our three flagship initiatives can be found here. So when Mark Scioneaux asked for our help in bringing his anthology idea to life, we knew we couldn’t resist.

So far the T.O.C. features: Neil Gaiman, Jo Kaplan, Jeremy Robert Johnson, Lucy Leitner, and Patrick Frievald, and we are signing new authors every week.

As more details become available, including cover art and an official release date for 2022, we’ll announce them on our blog and social media pages. Proceeds of the anthology sales will be split between Read Better Be Better in Arizona and Hagar’s House in New Orleans.

Please take a moment to find out about their missions:
