Within the next few weeks Chalk Line Books will be releasing what we endorse as maybe the greatest heist novel of all time — The Killing by Lionel White, which Stanley Kubrick made into a great noir film. If you haven’t read it before, you simply must now. It’s that good.

We have told you before that we hope to take up where Black Lizard Press left off. We have many superb crime fiction classics coming this fall and next spring. But we can use your help right now. We want to build a tight mailing list of people who, like us, are to-the-max fans of vintage crime fiction.

For everyone who has a decent mailing list of such folks and is willing to add them to our Chalk Line Posse, we will send you your choice of one of our cool t-shirts or a pdf of one of the Chalk Line books. Our pledge to you is to use your mailing list ONLY to build ours. We promise not to give or sell any name to anyone else.

As you have seen, we do not send out flurries of emails. Only those that announce new books, etc. And anyone wishing to unsubscribe only has to tell us. We will be honorable curators of our Chalk Line Posse list.

So please, let us know if you can help us build a publishing house worthy of the vintage crime fiction we hope to publish.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Tom Graves and Darrin Devault
