Not sure if you are aware, but there is a UK horror writer called Matthew Cash.
He has recently started up his own small press called Burdizzo Books. As well as taking the plunge with his writing, this is a brave and bold move by a man I have a lot of respect for, and one who devotes everything he does to the horror genre, regardless of the sub-genre.
He has a knack for pulling together fantastic authors with fantastic stories to fill the pages of anthologies. You need to watch this space for more details about future releases from him and the press.
But that is not the purpose of this post! Matty-Bob (as he is known around the world) is looking for help. Your help to be exact!
I will let him tell you what he needs:
“Do you know anyone who would like to be on a book cover?
I am searching for some original photographs of everyday people to use on covers for Burdizzo Books.
What I am after is a hi-res photo of people fitting the descriptions below.
***Please Note***** This request is ideally for photos of people over the age of 60, only.
Victor – grey / white hair, tall school master type, white, skinny build.
Norman – well-groomed, stern looking, dark hair, white, normal build.
Trevor – Jamaican, grey beard, large build.
Herbert – bald, white, rotund / round build.
Ethel – stereotypical grey haired old lady, white.
Elizabeth – classy old lady, like an ageing actress, glamorous, white.
If you know anyone who fits any of the above descriptions, just send your photos (portrait, from the shoulders up and front facing) to firstname.lastname@example.org and mark the relevant character name in the subject box.
Chosen people will get a free (signed) copy of the book, once published.
Thanks for your help”
So, if you or anyone you know fits the bill, get in touch with Matty and you could find them on the cover of the next best seller!
In the meantime, watch out for this coming soon as well!
