Even with the introduction of pre-order publishing across the board, I still think a book’s release day is a really big deal. A song and dance needs to be made on the day your book goes live.

Author John Mulhall is pleased to announce the release of his new supernatural thriller, Geddy’s Moon.
Geddy’s Moon is a supernatural thriller centered around Tyler, an amnesiac, drifting aimlessly, struggling to regain his lost memories. When he arrives in Geddy’s Moon, a sleepy town in the middle of the Kansas wheat fields, he finds himself tormented by nightmares that grow more unsettling each night. What horrific events took place before Tyler arrived in Geddy’s Moon? As the pieces of his fractured memory begin to fall into place, he fears that it may already be too late to keep himself, and those he’s begun to care about, safe from a vicious evil.
“This is definitely a page turner that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time!!” – Nicole J.’s Book Blog.
Geddy’s Moon was released by Blanket Fort Books on February 20, 2013 and is currently available from Amazon.com and Amazon UK.
Author Russil Tamsen is pleased to announce the release of his new flash fiction collection, Burst.
Slightly demented stories inspired by actual dreams. This collection of 130 quick reads is perfect for when you’re sitting on the john, or you’re needing a quick fiction nibble over lunch. Or you’re just feeling too A.D.D. to commit to a novel. Destined to become the kind of cult classic that William S. Burroughs would pass around to his friends. Also influenced by Tom Robbins and Chuck Palahniuk. BURST is full of memorable, off-kilter characters entangled in uncomfortable comedies of errors and misadventures: from a Guy Ritchie informed thug to telepathic aliens, and more!
Burst was released by QuirkEbooks.com in January 2013 and is currently available from Amazon.com and Amazon UK.
