Pre-orders have opened for print editions of Loud Snow – a one-shot boys’ love story about two young men falling in love on chilly ice flats (except much more interesting than my bad one-line synopsis). It’s written by Tina Anderson (author of Only Words and Whore of Turfan) and drawn by Amelie Belcher.
“Romantic ice-age hilarity ensues as young whaler Anituk’s miserable life with doting parents and an oversexed wife-hunting brother is rudely interrupted by the arrival of Abalu, a tall handsome stranger who delights in encroaching upon Anituk’s angst.”
The KINDLE edition will be available at the end of April while the physical books are set to start shipping mid-July. The price is really reasonable (only $8), especially for a book that’s working on a print-by-demand system. Aka – really awesome deal that directly supports the creators and gets these books through the printer!
You can currently read a couple preview pages of the story on the book’s pre-order info website. Pre-orders for the print edition are currently being taken through PayPal, and, though shipping via mail begins July 12, there’s also the option to pick up your books a couple days early at the San Japan convention in Texas.
