Some People Just Don’t Know When To Shut Up: New Book From Marian Allen. Um, We’re Talking About The Character, Not The Author

If you’ve read Marian Allen’s SIDESHOW IN THE CENTER RING, you know that Connie Phelan has a mouth on her. In these short stories, we see how that’s affected her life — and the lives of the people around her.

THE CENTER RING

Connie Phelan was born with no money, no prospects, and no filter. Her smart mouth got her into and out of trouble until she parlayed it into entertainment stardom. But that wasn’t enough. She wanted to lord it over the kind of elites who had made her childhood hell. That led her to Marner, where people are vaguely cat-like and a form of slavery is legal. Smart mouth. Trouble. Some things never change.

Available in print and Kindle editions.

More Danger From Michael Dabney

The former Philadelphia reporter Michael Dabney takes you back to Philly in the bad old days of the 80s with another David Blaise dive into danger.

David Blaise is a private eye with troubles. His girlfriend wants to have the Talk with him, Philly mobsters want to kill him, his brother-in-law lies to him, and a beautiful city official snubs him. On top of that, his lech of a landlord wants Blaise to prove his partner is cooking the books.

Blaise has to call on his Naval intelligence training and all of his North Philly street smarts if he’s going to survive 1984.

Available in print and for Kindle.

Cozy Up With Janie Franz

Janie Franz is back with Book 1 of a new series!

Sephronia Hill has spent most of her 85 years in Dark Hollow, Tennessee. A herbal healer, the local Granny Woman, Sephie forages medicinal herbs in the Appalachian foothills around her home making tinctures and salves. A peaceful way of life if you don’t count her prickly widowed sister, Agnesia, who shares the house with her.

An urgent phone call from her niece, Mandy upsets the routine. Mandy and her wife, Laura, need help urgently. Their community of Riverbend, North Dakota, is under threat by what appears to be a vampire and the resources of their metaphysical shop, the North Star, are stretched to their limit.

Sephie wastes no time. She and her protege, B.D. Travers, pack everything — including a few dozen jars of Cousin Lije’s secret ingredient — into the station wagon and head north.

Once in Riverbend, Sephie finds the vampire along with a whole host of other supernatural creatures and just maybe a bit of romance.

In print and for Kindle.

A Study in Quiet Courage

Brett Sander’s long-anticipated publication of two of his long stories in one volume has dropped!

A young woman named Viviana Suárez writes a series of letters to her friend in the United States, telling the story of Dorotea Bazán, “said to have been captured by Indians in the late nineteenth century,” and resistant of rescue. Years later, grown and married, Viviana finds herself in the middle of the eternal conflict between a seemingly rigid father and a rebellious teenage son.

Available at Amazon in print and for Kindle, and by order from other booksellers with the ISBN-10 1942166745, the ISBN-13 978-1942166740, or the ASIN (eBook) B09CRX8JNB.

Sylvie’s Back, And We’ve Got Her!

Sylvie is four coming five, and about to start school but an even bigger life event is just around the corner as the Second World War begins and Sylvie’s family, along with the rest of Britain, has to deal with new dangers and shortages.

British author Andrea Gilbey has transferred publication of her Sylvie’s War trilogy to Per Bastet, and we’re over the moon! Based on memories her late mother shared with her over the years, Gilbey is crafting fictional and semi-fictional characters and storylines that are so real, you’ll think you lived them yourself. In fact, one of the Pers read the book to her mother, who grew up in wartime America, and drew out many memories that had been buried by time.

Available at Amazon in print and for Kindle.

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!
