‘Triplicity’ Cover Reveal

Books & Boos Press is pleased to reveal the cover of our upcoming release, Triplicity: The Terror Project, Volume 1.The book is a collection of three novellas: “Brando and Bad Choices” by Stacey Longo, “Steel” by Tony Tremblay, and “The Christmas Spirit” by Rob Smales. It is the first installment of a three-book series.

The cover was designed by A.L. Cortez, and sets the theme for the series. “We wanted to convey that you can pick a card—any card—and get a hell of a story,” stated Jason Harris, Marketing Director. “The cover encapsulates that perfectly.”

Triplicity is already receiving advance praise. Author Melissa Crandall (Weathercock, Darling Wendy and Other Stories) said of the collection: “The ingredients in these three tales form a rich stew with a bit of something for everyone: an unexpectedly spirited Christmas, a taste of post-apocalyptic treachery, and a view of hell that’ll make you careful what you wish for. Eat hearty!”

Jeanette Andromeda at horromade.com called it “. . . a collection of three very distinct stories that, despite their differences, create a creepy yet heartfelt collection of horror and suspense that is entirely worth reading. 5 out of 5 blood spattered stars.” (You can read her full review HERE.)

Triplicity: The Terror Project, Volume 1 will be out just in time for the holiday season.

Norwich Author’s First Children’s Book Focuses on Friendship and Not Judging Others

Norwich resident Terry George will make her debut as a children’s book author with Sasha & Jake, released October 4 from Farmer’s Daughter Press.

George, a former resident of Willimantic, wrote and illustrated the book. Her artwork and writing has been included in the Ledyard, Connecticut Bill Library’s Exquisite Project as well as in themed art shows at the Gallery at the Wauregan in Norwich. Two of her short stories, written under the pen name Ryanne Strong, have been published in the anthology Tricks and Treats: a Collection of Spooky Stories by Connecticut Authors. When she’s not writing, Terry sculpts home décor and jewelry from polymer clay for her company, Cinnamon Bunny.

Terry George.

Sasha & Jake is the tale of Sasha, an Arctic fox befriended by a polar bear named Jake. The other animals of the tundra are afraid of Jake, simply because he has sharp claws and big teeth. Sasha must decide for herself if Jake’s appearance as a scary bear or his kindness and generosity are what’s most important. “We jumped at the chance to publish this book,” said Farmer’s Daughter Press editor Stacey Harris. “The story is charming, the illustrations are adorable, and in the end, it sends a positive message to kids to not judge others by their appearance.”

Sasha & Jake is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and select retail outlets. You can purchase the paperback here and the e-book here.

Reviewers may receive a copy by contacting Harris at sandlediting@gmail.com.

Halloween Anthology Now Available

img_4646Tricks and Treats: A Collection of Spooky Stories by Connecticut Authors contains stories by some of Connecticut’s most talented literary minds.

The anthology showcases scary stories from famous past Nutmeggers Mark Twain, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and John G. C. Brainard. Contemporary Connecticut authors include Stacey Longo, Melissa Crandall, G. Elmer Munson, Kristi Petersen Schoonover, Dan Foley, John Valeri, and Ryanne Strong.

The collection was edited by Longo, who pursued the project “to celebrate our state’s rich literary heritage, and to pay homage to New England’s ghostly history.” Each story comfortably fits in the genre of dark fiction. “Readers may be surprised to find that Twain, Stowe, and Perkins, for example, had ghost stories among their past published tales,” said Longo. The collection will be released on September 1 “just in time for the change in season.”

A trailer for the book can be viewed on YouTube at https://youtu.be/GkaGyqts8oE.
