Summer 2019 Publishing Schedule

Our planned releases for this summer (dates should be good, but thing do happen, y'know?). THE DICTATOR'S CHILDREN, the espionage adventure by Stephen Brooke, is still set for its official release on May 4.

Next up will be ALIENESE, a humorous but thoughtful sci-fi title from Oliver Davis Pike, on July 6. Here is the blurb:

Dave Ladd, has-been musician, didn’t mind being abducted by aliens. Especially when those aliens had plenty of cash to compensate him. Let them keep whatever secret they seemed to have learned about Earth.

So he thought when he was returned to his home in rural Alabama. But he was already too involved in that secret — a secret that involved the survival of humanity — and soon was on the run with an alien girlfriend, first on Earth and then ‘out there.’ A solution must be found by the motley band of humans and aliens thrown together in ALIENESE, a science fiction novel by Oliver Davis Pike.

This will be our first title by Mr. Pike. It will be followed on September 7 by a new fantasy novel from Stephen Brooke, THE CROCODILE GOD (the sequel to The Crocodile's Son). The blurb:

Caring for her estate and her two-year-old son was quite enough for Qala, once Queen of Pirates. Gladly had she left the excitement of her former life behind. So what if she had never found the love she had once been promised?

Now the boy was beginning to show his heritage as child of the Crocodile God, disappearing to visit other worlds and bringing home little monster playmates. There were important political negotiations going on practically on her doorstep, negotiations involving kings and empires, pirates and wizards, and try though she might, Qala was going to be swept up in them.

Then Zedos’s father shows up and the gods get involved. Would Qala ever be able to live the simple life she desired and maybe, just maybe, find love? Join her as she searches in The Crocodile God, a fantasy adventure by Stephen Brooke.

Upcoming Titles in 2019

Perhaps the title should read possibly upcoming in 2019. Things can go wrong, after all. But here are the likely covers:

Stephen Brooke's THE  CROCODILE GOD is for certain later this year. This is the sequel to his fantasy novel THE CROCODILE'S SON, continuing the adventures of Qala the (former) Pirate Queen. The science fiction title, ALIENESE by Oliver Davis Pike is less certain when it comes to release date. That depends on edits and all the other typical concerns.

We should have the final proof print version of THE DICTATOR'S CHILDREN in our hands shortly. If there are no problems (and we anticiapte none but one never knows) it will be available 'immediately' in our own store and everywhere (it is to be hoped) by the official May 4 release date.
