June, 2006 – Present (over 10 years)

I started BLUM in 2006 and spent a full year training myself in every aspect of book design and production, marketing and distribution before I released our first book in 2007. I edit, design, typeset and create cover art for all our titles, and produce press-ready PDFs for print. I launched into ebooks when the Kindle store opened in November 2007; we were in the Kindle store in December. I do web design and am fluent in HTML and CSS, so I hand code all epub editions and use customized epubs to convert to Kindle editions. I design promotional materials including postcards, business cards, flyers and brochures.

Un-Dead TV: The Ultimate Guide to Vampire Television

Brad Middleton

Vampires are ubiquitous in our popular culture—from movies to television, in fiction and art, and even within the hallowed halls of academia. But in the not-so-distant past, these undead creatures held more fear than fascination; they lived in the shadows and were the stuff of nightmares.
