August Happenings: Sales, Releases, and Jeff Strand

Books & Boos Press is thrilled to announce Jeff Strand will have an original short story in our upcoming darkly funny anthology, tentatively titled A Sharp Stick in the Eye (and Other Funny Stories), edited by Rob Smales (you can find our submission guidelines here). Strand is the four-time Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of 30-plus books, including Blister, A Bad Day for Voodoo, and Wolf Hunt. His most recent releases are the YA novel Stranger Things Have Happened, and Everything Has Teeth, a short story collection. That he agreed to be in the anthology had all of us here doing a rather silly yet utterly respectful happy dance.

We’re also excited for Three on a Match’s upcoming release on September 5! Keep an eye out for the book trailer, which will be made public mid-August. Three on a Match is the second installment of the Terror Project, and features novellas from talented authors Melissa Crandall, g. Elmer Munson, and Kristi Petersen Schoonover, and is already garnering accolades. Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of The Twin’s Daughter, calls it “spooky, sinister, spine-tingling: these three keep-you-up-all-night tales . . . have it all!”

In celebration of Three on a Match’s release, we’re going to offer the first installment in the Terror Project, Triplicity, on sale in the week leading up to the publication date. Keep an eye out for a deep discount on this fantastic trio of novellas from Tony Tremblay, Rob Smales, and Stacey Longo!

That’s not the only sale we’re offering this month. Sasha & Jake by Terry George will be 30% off the print book the week of August 13, and the ebook will be only 99 cents! Keep an eye out for an opportunity to get the free must-have accessories of the fall when this book goes on sale: if you leave a review on Amazon, you’ll get a special prize, hand-crafted by the author!

Connecticut Author Continues Support for National Multiple Sclerosis Society with New Book: Available Now

Farmer’s Daughter Press, an imprint of Books & Boos Press, is proud to announce the release of My Mom, MS, and a Sixth-Grade Mess by Stacey Longo.

You can find the book at Amazon here.

The book tells the tale of Patrick Holder, who first appeared in the children’s book My Mom Has MS (2015, Farmer’s Daughter Press), now in middle school. Patrick has problems: he has an English project due and he hasn’t read the book yet; he and his best friend like the same girl; he suspects he might have a unibrow. Oh yeah—and his mom has multiple sclerosis.

Longo wrote the book to help kids deal with their parent’s MS diagnosis, and a portion of every sale of this book is donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. She also raises money for National Multiple Sclerosis Society and walks in a yearly MS Walk.

The book’s cover art and interior images were also illustrated by Longo, and the subject matter is personal. “My friend Renee was diagnosed with MS in 2008, and the way she and her family rallied to make the best of her situation was amazing.” The protagonist of the books—Patrick Holder—is based on Renee’s youngest son, and many members of her family make appearances in the latest book.

A trailer for the book can be viewed on YouTube here.

Longo, who resides in Connecticut, is the author of Ordinary Boy and the short story collection Secret Things. For more information about her and her books, check out her website, http://www.staceylongo.com.
