Last year’s event was tremendous, and this year’s should be even better. Imaginarium is a creative writing convention offering a huge array of panel discussions, workshops, and content designed to help writers at all levels improve their craft, manage the business side of writing and market their work effectively. There will also be a film festival, masquerade and literary awards.
If you enjoy creative writing, we highly recommend attending this excellent event.
We had a huge October here at the Temple o’ Bastet! We released two books, including a brand-new Young Adult Paranormal from Marian Allen. We conducted our Day of the Dead Giveaway, sending spooky and delightful books into the hands of readers. We sent T. Lee and Marian to Magna Cum Murder.
Now that it’s November, the temperatures are falling and our schedule will probably be calming down. But not before we have another announcement!
We are proud to announce the publication of Bitter Cold: A Steampunk Snow Queen by Katina French.
This madcap steampunk adventure takes the story of childhood friends Kai and Gerda, and the nefarious Snow Queen, and sets it in The Clockwork Republics, an alternate history where the American states never united and the world runs on mechanical marvels and alchemical enchantment.
In this version Kit (Kai) is a mechanical genius and Greta (Gerda) is a talented alchemist. When Evelyn DeWinter, a woman the papers call the Snow Queen, kidnaps Kit to complete her diabolical device the Eternity Engine, Greta must risk everything to rescue him.
This book features: A kick-butt heroine. A lot of explosions. A touching love story. A jet-propelled clockwork reindeer.
If you enjoyed Disney’s FROZEN, see what the story looks like all steam(punk)ed up!
We are pleased to announce our second October release, A Dead Guy at the Summerhouseby Marian Allen. This young adult paranormal mystery is set in 1968 against the backdrop of the Vietnam War. A young man takes a job with a wealthy eccentric. But things take a strange turn. Can Mitch escape the ghosts of the past, or will he become one himself?
“It was 1968. Like a lot of seventeen-year-old males that summer, I was thinking about death. Not Bobby Kennedy’s or Martin Luther King’s. I was contemplating my own. I could feel my eighteenth birthday looming and I had to wonder if I’d spend my nineteenth in Vietnam, in Canada, in jail, or in the Great Hereafter. It was nearly the last mentioned, and not at the hands of the VC, either. I came this close to having my goozle slit right here at home in good old nothing-ever-happens Faelin, Indiana.” Mitch Franklin thinks he’s got it made when the town’s wealthiest eccentric hires him to look after her two lapdogs. Then he meets her family. Five years ago, the last guy she hired played head games the family and servants are still trying to recover from. He also wound up dead. Now, some people think Mitch might be just like him. Some people think Mitch might BE him, back from the grave. Will Mitch survive the anniversary of his predecessor’s death, or will he be another DEAD GUY AT THE SUMMERHOUSE?
Sounds exciting, right? Take a trip back in time and into the unknown this October. Get your copy today.
We’re proud to announce the re-release of Ghostly Hauntings of Interstate 65 by Joanna Foreman. Do you feel lucky? This collection of 13 spooky tales, based on fact and folklore, will bring a chill to your spine, just in time for All Hallow’s Eve!
Go to the café, if you dare, but don’t sit in booth #1. Our ghost plays tricks on unsuspecting diners. How did the pristine, red 1968 Mustang arrive on Interstate-65 at midnight without a driver? Oh sure, the fortune teller had warned of a little girl in trouble, but why had she said nothing about pink? Sacred bones, of a prostitute no less, are unearthed during Interstate construction. See how she solves the mystery of a long-forgotten murder. The mansion was moved in preparation for the new highway, but what about the solid gold coffin in the cellar?
Grab your copy today. (But read it with the light on!)
