Call for Submissions: Corporate Catharsis – EXTENDED THROUGH AUGUST 30, 2019

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.

New Book Release: “Grimaulkin Tales” by L. A. Jacob

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Grimaulkin Tales (a collection of stories in the “Grimaulkin” series) by L. A. Jacob.

You can tell a lot about a person by looking at the people in their life — Mike LeBonte is no exception.

Who is Ritter, and why is he so important to Mike?

Who is the Grey Man in the Atheneum? And what is Chevalier to the Rosicrucians?

Did Reverend Greene really escape? Whatever happened to Becky?

Also included in this collection is the first case that Grimaulkin has with his new apprentice, Ash.

Re-enter the world of Grimaulkin, where magic is real.

Grimaulkin Tales is available in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.

New Book Release: “Due Date” by Nancy Wood

We are extremely pleased to announce the immediate availability of Due Date (A Shelby McDougall Mystery) by Nancy Wood.

Surrogate mother Shelby McDougall just fell for the biggest con of all: a scam that risks her life … and the lives of her unborn twins.

Twenty-three-year-old Shelby McDougall is facing a mountain of student debt and a memory she’d just as soon forget. An ad in Rolling Stone for a surrogate mother offers her a way to erase the loans and right her karmic place in the cosmos. Within a month, she’s signed a contract, relocated to Santa Cruz, California, and started fertility treatments.

But intended parents Jackson and Diane Entwistle have their own agenda — one that has nothing to do with diapers and lullabies. With her due date looming, and the clues piling up, Shelby must save herself and her twins.

As she uses her wits to survive, Shelby learns the real meaning of the word “family”.

Due Date is available in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.

New Book Release: “L’ultimo granello del mondo” (The Last Speck of the World) by Flavia Idà

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Italian edition of The Last Speck of the World (L’ultimo granello del mondo) 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.”

Senza nome. Senza razza. Senza nazionalità. La superstite della catastrofe perfetta lotta per preservare se stessa e la sua speranza di essere trovata — da esseri umani.

“Sono femmina, di trentadue anni, sola nell’ultimo granello del mondo. Il mio nome, la mia razza e la mia nazionalità non sono importanti. Non so perché la pestilenza mi abbia risparmiato. Mi ha tolto ogni persona ed ogni cosa. Tutte le macchine e tutti gli orologi sono morti. Ciò che continua a farmi respirare è la speranza che io non sia l’unico custode del pianeta.”

The Last Speck of the World (L’ultimo granello del mondo) is available now in digital editions. A printed edition will available soon. Signed editions are also available.

New Book Release: “Memory and Metaphor” by Andrea Monticue

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.

Paper Angel Press Author L. A. Jacob Published in “Selections” Anthology

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.
