Happy Friday the 13th!
Western superstitions be damned! On Friday the 13th—come hell or high water or hail of frogs—we’re rolling out our third e-book, and it’s a corker!
Really? we hear you saying. You’d thumb your nose at Fate rather than wait another 24 hours, until the much safer-sounding Saturday the 14th?
Yes. Truth be told, we’re too giddy with excitement to wait even one more day. After all, we’re talking about Ghosts I Have Met, and Some Others, a most peculiar collection of supernatural tales by John Kendrick Bangs, the renowned humorist for whom the term Bangsian fantasy was coined.
This lovely tidbit was first published in 1898—the same year that brought us The War of the Worlds, The Turn of the Screw, and Jerome K. Jerome’s Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow—and we’ve gone to great lengths to preserve the integrity of the original. Not only do you get pristine reproductions of all 23 original plate illustrations; there’s also a Frivolous Reading Group Guide, and an illuminating foreword by Pinocchio’s Forgotten Land author Scott Mignola.
And that’s not all. Hold on to your knickers, because it’s all yours, everything described above, and maybe even some things that in our excitement we’ve neglected to mention, for the unfathomably low price of $2.99 American dollars!
Why so reasonably priced? you ask. Because, even in the midst of a recovering economy, times are hard. And because we love you.
Purchase information is available on our website, which has been redressed in fall colors to stir up visions of warm stuffing and pumpkin pie.
It’s been a long wait, but our two companion e-books, The Adventures of Pinocchio and Pinocchio’s Forgotten Land, are now available in the iBookstore worldwide, in all 51 territories! And they look fantastic on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, if we do say so ourselves. Links to both books can be found HERE.
This is just the beginning for us. Our next project is already in the works for—we hope—an August release.
And we’re always on the lookout for new, undiscovered literary voices, so if you’re a writer please take a look at our submission guidelines, and pass our name along to other writers you know. We’d love to hear from you.
We’ve been quiet for the last couple of weeks, formatting our two Pinocchio companion volumes for the Kindle e-reader. Looks like we’ve got one last hoop to jump through with Amazon, which will either get these books approved for publication or send us scurrying back to the drawing board. There have been unexpected delays with Apple, too, but fingers and toes are crossed for getting these books to your beloved iPads and iPhones by the end of this month.
In the meantime, take a look at the facelift we gave our website. How bright and shiny it is! You can now subscribe to our blog and receive e-mail updates about our new book releases. Looking forward to seeing you there!
