New Release! Other Earth, Other Stars

otherearthotherstarsPer Bastet Publications is pleased to announce our latest new release. Other Earth Other Stars by Marian Allen.

These stories and poems, most collected from various venues and one brand new, imagine alternate Earth, future Earth, Earthlings in space and on other planets, and people of other planets.

In order to work off-world, you have to have your connection to the ‘net severed. But what if you still hear voices in your head?

In an alternate history, three young friends and their mechanical dog rent an airship for a jolly holiday. Then sky pirates happen.

Can you ever trust a mermayd? They may be charming, but there’s nobody trickier.

A woman begins to wonder exactly who she is after her atoms are reassembled at the end of a transfer.

By land, air, or sea, with two arms or eight, driving lessons are driving lessons.

These stories and poems, most collected from various venues and one brand new, imagine alternate Earth, future Earth, Earthlings in space and on other planets, and people of other planets.

Science fiction. It’s not just ray-guns anymore.

It’s currently available for the Kindle at Amazon for just $2.99, and will be available in print on September 26, 2015! If you must have a print copy sooner, visit us at the Kentuckiana Authors Book Blitz this weekend. We’ll have pre-release copies available!

Now hear this! Audiobooks from Per Bastet

Our motto may be “where timeless tales unfold,” but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck in the days of papyrus scrolls.  Per Bastet Publications is proud to announce that we are in the process of getting our catalog available in audiobook format! You will soon be able to download and listen to our books from Amazon, Audible and iTunes.

Winter Wonderland by T. Lee Harris and Whiskey on the Rocks by Katina French should be available in August, with more titles to come over the next few months.

You could spend your commute listening to radio commercials featuring an annoying car salesman, or you could listen to tales of murder, mayhem, mystery, and humor. We’re pretty sure we know what we’d prefer.

Stay tuned for more news!

November brings a Bitter Cold

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!

Web Version Bitter ColdWe 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!
