New Book Release: “Carnival Farm” by Lisa Jacob

Carnival Farm

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Carnival Farm by Lisa Jacob. Seagn Conway is tired of her veterinary practice — the same entitled pet parents, the same dogs and cats, maybe the occasional lizard or snake, now bore her to pieces. When a traveling carnival with a farm animal petting zoo comes to town, she discovers all the animals are depressed, malnourished, and neglected. Was it the right decision, she wonders, to give up everything she had for this ragtag collection of failing farm animals? Carnival Farm is available now in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions....

New Book Release: “Still Life” by Paul Skenazy

Still Life

We are pleased to be able to announce the immediate availability of Still Life by Paul Skenazy. When his wife Edie dies, Will Moran abandons all he used to be, and do, to paint still life canvases of rocks and driftwood on the walls of his house. He’s never painted before, recognizes his paintings are awful, but returns each day to his struggles with light and shadow, color and object, boundary and perspective. Lost in his new obsession, Will avoids friends, gives away his furniture, and wanders the streets of his small coastal town late into the night. He eavesdrops...

New Book Release: “Smith: An Unauthorized Fictography” by Jory Post

Smith: An Unauthorized Fictography

We are pleased and honored to be able to announce the immediate availability of Smith: An Unauthorized Fictography by Jory Post. In a kaleidoscopic, episodic joy ride, Jory Post treats us to thirty interviews that may or may not be real, with an array of “ordinary” people who turn out to be anything but, all of them in conversation with an interviewer who is herself a mystery. As one encounter follows another, we realize that “Smith” is a convenient alias for a range of voices, including: a traveling nurse from Saipan, a Vietnam-war vet who lives in his truck, a...

New Book Release: “Costruendo il fratellino” (Building Baby Brother) by Steven Radecki (translated by Flavia Idà)

Costruendo il fratellino

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Italian edition of "Building Baby Brother" (Costruendo il fratellino) written by Steven Radecki and translated by Flavia Idà. Dapprima sembrava una buona idea … I figli cresceranno sempre, che ne siamo pronti o no. Una verità che ho imparato dall’essere genitore è che prima o poi i figli ti faranno domande difficili e forse anche scomode, alle quali si aspettano che tu abbia una risposta. È vero anche che spesso ci è difficile negare ai nostri figli le cose che più desiderano – come la libertà. It seemed like a...

Figli del tempo sbagliatoFigli del tempo sbagliato

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Italian edition of Children of the Wrong Time (Figli del tempo sbagliato) by Flavia Idà. “Potreste dire di essere stati amati dalle persone giuste, per i motivi giusti, nel modo giusto e al tempo giusto?” I cittadini della Generazione Avanti devono guadagnarsi il diritto di riprodursi, superando un estenuante tirocinio ideato al fine di sradicare l’infelicità umana causata dalle scelte fatte a caso. Michael Holmes e Nora Savins sono pronti ad affrontare il tirocinio; ciò che non sanno è che alcune cose al mondo nasceranno sempre da scelte fatte a...

New Audio Edition Release: “Back to the Land in Silicon Valley” by Marlene Anne Bumgarner

We are pleased to announce the release of the audio edition Back to the Land in Silicon Valley by Marlene Anne Bumgarner. “We all worked together. Ate together. Sang together. Learned together. We had a good life. After living close to the natural cycles of the earth year after year, good and not good, we grew stronger and more resilient, learned to manage our occasional conflicts with tolerance and love.” When Marlene Bumgarner and her husband moved to a rural plot of land in 1973, she thought of herself as simply a young mother seeking an affordable and safe place...

Why bother with a review?

tl;dr  Reviews are the #1 way books get readers' attention, and that drives sales for authors. There are all kinds of studies using all kinds of algorithms about how word of mouth impacts book sales for the better. You can read those, if you care to, or you can take my word for it. Back when we all lived in a slower, kinder world, people sat and chatted with each other, and they talked about what they were reading. Now, only the most devoted bibliophiles hang out in in-person book clubs (except pandemic, which has largely killed those); most of...
