This is the community site for Brick Cave Media, a publisher based in Mesa, AZ. We publish Science Fiction, Fantasy, Poetry and assorted other projects. We have been publishing since 2011, although we have been doing a number of other things going back to 2006. You can learn more about that on our main website, or on our very in Wiki.
How's This Work?
The club itself is pretty simple. There are three membership levels, one free, two paid. All members, regardless of tier level, will receive the Brick Cave Dispatch, our email newsletter. In addition, with the release of each new title, members will receive a limited opportunity to pre-order the book. The advanced notice (and discount amount) depend on the level of membership outlined below. Brick Cave Media offers three tiers of club membership, with each tier having benefits associated with it, including:
Member New Book Advance Discount
Before the release of each new book from Brick Cave Media, depending on the member's level, we will give them an opportunity to purchase the book for a discount. The notice gives the member a 7 day opportunity to purchase the book at their member level discount. Following that opportunity, the member still receives their level store discount if they choose to purchase that title. All books ordered through any level in the program using the advance discount are signed by the author.
Advance Order Period
Members will receive the notice to order at the pre-order discount at the designated number of days based on their level, ie. an Eager Believer member will receive their advance notice 15 days prior to the "Launch Day" designated by Brick Cave Media, LLC. They will have a 7 day window to place their order and receive the discounted price offer.
Login Site Credentials
Upon completing the designated interest form and payment process as needed depending on level, the new member will be emailed a user name and password to begin using the site.
