New Book Release: “The Last Speck of the World” by Flavia Idà

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.

New Book Release: “War Mage” by Jake Logan & L. A. Jacob

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.

New Audio Edition Release: “Broken Bridge (Book Two of the Glass Bottles Series)” by J Dark

We are thrilled to announce the audio edition of Broken Bridge (Book Two of the Glass Bottles Series) by J Dark.

Sometimes a broken bridge has to be crossed.

Talk about Byzantine influences.

Fern Fatelli is approached by a desperate father to find his daughter before something bad happens to her, only to find that the job is really a diversion made to have her owe a service to a fae lord.

Cobb, the fae lord, then contracts Fern, not as a finder, but as a wizard, and forces her to re-open the Anolyn way.

As this is going on, Cobb is deliberately obstructing her research, and, more sinisterly, sending creatures to attack her, all the while expecting results.

What does a girl do to get a break?

Narrated by Marie Kopan, the audio edition of Broken Bridge (Book Two of the Glass Bottles Series) is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

Protect your present or suffer from your past.

It’s Scott’s birthday, and Mike LeBonte has big plans for his boyfriend.

First, he has to deal with losing his magic. However, he’s well-known to the police as a consultant, and someone has summoned a demon in the North Burial Ground in Providence. Not just any demon, but Lucifer himself.

As Mike fights to try and regain his magic to help the police, a man from his past comes into town and tries to make inroads on his boyfriend.

That, Mike cannot abide.

Stress affects people differently. Then, there’s magic.

Mike LeBonte is house-sitting while his sister and her new husband go on their honeymoon. What could happen in two weeks?

First, his cousin Becky calls him saying she’s being followed. It could be the Mafia. Or it could be the church she’s trying to separate from.

Then his boyfriend tells Mike his ex is coming to visit. Then Mike meets his parole officer — a Knight of the Rosicrucians, the very people who put him in prison.

With all this stress, it’s no wonder that Mike resorts to magic to cope. But like any drug, it could very well alter his own perception of reality.

Treading the straight and narrow is not natural to one who summons demons.

Michael LeBonte is set free after five years in magic prison. All he has to do is stay on the straight and narrow path for the rest of his life. However, because he summoned demons to “take care of things,” it’s easier said than done.

Now his plan is to make a new life for himself. His sister has welcomed him back, he’s met a cute guy, and he’s found a nice job assisting the local private investigator.

But his expertise does not go unnoticed and he gets pulled back to do what got him sent to prison in the first place.

Narrated by Eric MacArthur, the audio edition of Grimaulkin (Book One of the Grimaulkin Series) is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

Why Haven’t You Written Your Book? (Part 1 of 4)

Many of us know people who have written — or threatened to write — books, but then those books never seem to materialize in a final form. Even after we started Paper Angel Press, and positioned it as an author-friendly platform for getting your written creations read, we still experienced the same hesitation among writers, even those with whom we had good working relationships. Why was this happening?, we wondered.

So, last fall we ran a survey with two different audiences in order to try to understand why writers don’t complete or submit their books. We also sought to understand how writers might measure the “success” of their work after it has been published.

In an effort to keep the survey as brief and accessible as possible, we offered only three statements for the respondents to complete:

  1. I would write my book if …
  2. I’m afraid to write (or submit) my book because …
  3. I would consider my book to be a success if …

During the course of the next few blog posts, we will share the results of this survey with you.

We hope you enjoy them and find them useful. Maybe you’ll see yourself in our results and ask yourself, “Why Haven’t You Written Your Book?”.

New Audio Edition Release: “Best Intentions (Book One of the Glass Bottles Series)” by J Dark

We are thrilled to announce the audio edition of Best Intentions (Book One of the Glass Bottles Series) by J Dark.

When your past is left undone, it will come find you.

Fern Fatelli is a private investigator, specializing in more shady activities than finding children. The situation that launches her deeper into the uncertain realm of Magick is Fern being hired to expose Hervald Thensome, a prominent businessman in Halifax, Nova Scotia, as an adulterer. From this point on, Fern’s situation spirals deeper into the realm of magic and danger.

Attacks by a mysterious man, and her own contracted adventure with kidnapping a general’s family keep Fern walking a tightrope between her own concerns, and those around her, and her past. Her sister Fawn, a police lieutenant becomes involved as attacks on Fern become tinged with Magick and their shared past. The past comes back in full force with a revealing of the true reason why Fern and Fawn’s parents cast the spell that destroyed the family so many years ago.
