A mention that three of our four books by Stephen Brooke (plus his free short-story, 'A Tale of Two Turkeys') are available at both the Barnes and Noble and the Apple stores. Just search for 'Stephen Brooke' to find 'The Middle of Nowhere,' 'Dreamwinds,' and 'Pieces of the Moon' in epub format.

His picture book for the little ones, 'A Mouse Is In The House,' is not available in epub. We don't think toddlers are using e-readers all that much.

Here are links for 'The Middle of Nowhere,' Stephen's Young Adult novel, at both stores:

Pieces of the Moon

The revised third edition of Stephen Brooke's 'Pieces of the Moon' is now available in print, PDF and epub. This was Stephen's first book of poetry (and our first title), originally released in 2003, and contains some of his national and regional award winners as well as his pen and ink illustrations.

This is our final release for 2011. We hope to have more new titles available in the coming year. Stay posted!

Dreamwinds Sample

With the Thanksgiving holiday past, we have taken down the short story, 'A Tale of Two Turkeys' (although it is still available as a free epub download at our Spotlight and the ibookstore) and posted a poem from 'Dreamwinds' on our Sampler page. We hope that if you enjoy it, you will consider purchasing the chapbook.

Dreamwinds Cover

Here's a more-or-less finished version of the cover for the Dreamwinds poetry chapbook. Our original cover art has migrated to the back!

We still hope to have the book ready by the end of this month...or, at any rate, by our original scheduled release date at the end of the year. I've finished off what seems to be a workable source version for an EPUB edition; the print and PDF versions are in the works. Ideally, all will be released around the same time.

Dreamwinds is a collection of Stephen Brooke's more fantasy/romance-oriented poems.

A Thanksgiving Story

We have added a page, as we get this blog-site into operation, called 'Sampler.' Writing samples, mostly from our titles, will appear there.

The first offering is a short story, 'A Tale of Two Turkeys,' which is closely related to a chapter from our YA Novel, 'The Middle of Nowhere.' The story is also available as a free epub download at:

A Beginning

I've started this blog as, most likely, an adjunct to the Arachis Press site, a place to post our publishing news. There is however a chance it will become the site itself. We shall see how that plays out.

In the meantime, welcome!
