Latest Updates from Our Project:

More Plush Toys Coming Soon...
8 months ago – Thu, Feb 09, 2023 at 10:23:38 AM

Hey there, Cthulhu fans! We hope you're doing well! We've been battling some epicly cold days here in frosty New England, but our plan is to heat things up this spring with the long awaited launch of some new plush toys emerging from the pages of the C is for Cthulhu series of books!

If you're a fan of...




...then you're going to be in luck, as these will soon be available for preorder. We're just finishing up a product shoot with the new toys, and putting the final pieces in place for a launch, sometime next month. 

And should this campaign perform as well as we hope, we have some extra cool things waiting in the wings to unveil that we think you're going to love.  So, watch this space and get ready! 

Do You Need an Adorable Were-Wolf VooDoo Doll? Of course you do! 

We also wanted to let you know about another really cool plush project going down right now for our buddy Rob Multari's new NightWolf Plush Toy! 

This plush, based on Rob's wildly popular NIGHT WOLF series of comic books, and an upcoming children's book featuring Werewolf Pups, is designed with Skelton Crew Studios, the same crew that we work with on C is for Cthulhu products, so you know the quality will be top notch. 

We had to get one of these for our little monsters, and we also recommend picking up the Night Wolf series of books, if you're a fan of urban fantasy in the style of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural or Riverdale.  

This campaign has just a few hours left to go and needs just a bit more funding to hit it's goal and make the plush happen. 


That's all for now, hope you have an amazing week! 

P.S.  If you're having trouble coming up with the perfect Valentine's Day gift for the boy or girl of your Eldritch Dreams, might we suggest our new C IS FOR CTHULHU VALENTINE'S DAY LOVE BUNDLE?

Cthulhu Updates & Special Deal for Our Backers!
11 months ago – Sat, Nov 05, 2022 at 08:37:10 PM

Hey, friends! Hope all is well! 

We're pleased to report that our new C is for Cthulhu Books & Plush Toys are continuing to arrive for our backers worldwide... and for the most part, we've been thrilled with the response.  We've also been able to respond pretty quickly to a small number of backers who have had issues with their rewards, so don't hesitate to contact us through Kickstarter if you have questions or issues.  

We're down to just 11 Backers without survey or shipping info needed to ship their rewards and just 3 backers who still need to resolve charge issues to complete their orders. 

If that's you, you can resolve everything here:

We're also thrilled that the book has started to generate those reviews and sales on the Amazon platform! Thanks to awesome reviews like this:

Our book has already moved up from page 25 in search results for the phrase "the night before christmas" all the way to page 3 on Amazon! 

The more reviews the merrier, so if you'd still like to share your thoughts on the new book, please leave an honest review over at Amazon when you get a moment.

AWESOME PROJECT ALERT (With SECRET BONUS Just for C is for Cthulhu Fans!)

Our good friend Moana McAdams is back on Kickstarter this month with another amazin children's book in her mythical and magical Adventures of Nakoa and Nohea series!

The latest book is called Journey to 'Ikuā, and is an all ages hardcover fantasy adventure!

This is a a 32-page bi-lingual picture book full of the magic, mythology, and mystery of the Pacific Islands, and we think fans who did the lush colors and weird creatures of our books will love this one too.


We asked Moana if she'd like to sweeten the deal if any of our awesome backers come over and support her project... and she said "Of course!"

#CisforCthulhu Backer Bonus Sticker!

If you head over to the Journey to 'Ikuā project and back the campaign at any physical pledge level, and then leave a comment on the Kickstarter that includes #CisforCthulhu, you'll get this exclusive tentacle monster sticker included with your pledge for free! 

We love this book and will be picking up a copy for our little monsters, and we're happy to reward you all when you do the same!

Need an Extra Copy of the New Book? We Have 101 Amazon Coupons Up for Grabs!
11 months ago – Wed, Oct 26, 2022 at 08:29:33 PM

Hot on the heels of our big announcement yesterday that we've shipped out all of our pre-order books, we are pleased to announce that the new book has landed at AMAZON! 


We have exactly ZERO reviews for the new book which just landed on Amazon, so if you want to be the first to leave us one... we would be GREATLY appreciative of that! 


Our other board books, C is for Cthulhu and Sweet Dreams Cthulhu have been great sellers over on Amazon, racking up hundreds of 5-star reviews... but because The Night Before Christmas: A C is for Cthulhu Holiday Tale is a new book, it's completely buried behind other holiday classics... and is practically invisible on Amazon right now.

The Amazon book recommendation engine responds to only two things:

1) Reviews

2) Sales

And right now... the new book doesn't have much of either over there.

The good news, though, is that we are greenlit to run a special promotion at Amazon for the new book!

ONLY 101 "The Night Before Christmas" Coupons Available at (US ONLY)!


To help put THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS on the Amazon map, we're now able to make a limited # of copies available to our incredible VIP fan list at a big discount.

How big a discount, you ask?

Well, we have in our hands 101 Coupon Codes for THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS at Amazon in different amounts off:

1 Coupon @ 99% Off! Regular Price: $19.99. Your Price: BASICALLY FREE

5 Coupons @ 80% Off! Regular Price: $19.99. Your Price: $3.99

25 Coupons @ 50% Off! Regular Price: $19.99. Your Price: $9.99

30 Coupons @ 35% Off! Regular Price: $19.99. Your Price: $12.99

40 Coupons @ 20% Off! Regular Price: $19.99. Your Price: $15.99

These coupons are "burning a hole" in our pockets over here... they're too hot for us to handle!

Would you like one?

Well, here's the deal:

1) These coupons are only valid for the physical board book of THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS: A C IS FOR CTHULHU HOLIDAY TALE} and can't be used on other C is for Cthulhu Products.

2) They're only good at (US store only.)

3) They're only going to be good for one week and will expire THURSDAY 11/3/22 at midnight.

4) If you have Amazon prime, your book will also be eligible for free Prime shipping.

5) We will be giving out coupons starting TOMORROW MORNING at 9 AM, in the order that people register to get one. (The sooner you click, the higher your discount will be!)

6) Please don't click if you're not actually interested in getting the book at a 20% or more discount over at Amazon... because you'll likely be stealing a coupon from someone who is. (And as the residents of Whoville will tell you, no one likes a Grinch!)

Got it?


Note: We'll be sending out an invite to request a coupon to our larger list and on social media later today, but we wanted to make sure our backers had first crack at them!

As always, we appreciate you helping us bring this book to life, and your help in getting it into even more hands this holiday season!
