We’ve all been there: standing behind a desk or a counter for ridiculously long hours, letting the movie of our imagination roll behind our eyes. Maybe you open the supply room door and find another dimension; perhaps the photocopier reproduces cryptic messages from other realities. We’re certain that you can, far too easily, find inspiration from your workplace. Magic, mayhem, revenge — and, yes, perhaps even redemption — can all be found there.
Corporate Catharsis is the anthology we all need — one that can help us survive our corporate servitude with our hearts and souls intact.

We are thrilled to announce the immediate availability of Memory and Metaphor by Andrea Monticue.
Civilization fell. It rose. At some point, people built starships.
A millennium after the Earth was abandoned to climate change and resource depletion, Sharon Manders wakes up in a body that used to belong to somebody else, and some say she was a terrorist. She has no idea how she could be digging for Pleistocene bones in Africa one day, and crewing on a starship the next. That was just before she met the wolfman, the elf, and the sex robot.
Struggling with distressingly unreliable memories, the expectations of her host body’s family and crewmates, future shock, and accusations of treason, Sharon goes on the lam to come face to face with terrorists, giant bugs, drug cartels, AIs, and lawyers.
All things considered, she’d rather be back in 21st Century California.
Memory and Metaphor is available in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.
We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of The Last Speck of the World by Flavia Idà.
No name. No race. No nationality. The survivor of the perfect catastrophe struggles to preserve herself and her hope that she may be found — by humans.
“I am female, thirty-two, alone in the last speck of the world. My name, my race and my nationality are no longer important. I do not know why the plague has spared me. It has taken everything else. All the clocks and all the machines are dead. What keeps me breathing is the hope that I may not be the sole custodian of the planet.”
The Last Speck of the World is available in trade paperback and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.
We are pleased and excited to announce that Paper Angel Press author L. A. Jacob’s short story, “My First Demon”, has been published in the anthology, Selections.
What really happens when you take out a bully?
When Mike LeBonte is faced with a bully every year for his middle-school life, he does the only thing he can think of to solve the problem.
He summons the demon Andromalius — a demon that is meant to punish “wicked men” such as Mousey, Mike’s present nemesis.
Selections (published by The Association of Rhode Island Authors) is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
We are thrilled to announce the immediate availability of War Mage (the first book in the “War Mage” series) by Jake Logan and L. A. Jacob.
In war, here be dragons.
First Magus Brent Rogers has just been transferred from Fort Leavenworth to Afghanistan. His mission: to find out how and why a seemingly indestructible dragon died on an alleged suicide mission.
Brent finds out that even dragons have secrets — and those secrets, if known, can kill them. Will Brent be like all the other wizards, and work for the Army, or will he keep the secrets of the dragons?
His success — and maybe even his life — could depend on his decision.
War Mage is available in trade paperback and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.
