After seven years as a humor columnist for the Block Island Times and ten years as a weekly humor blogger on staceylongo.com, Stacey Longo is finally offering past columns and blog posts in chapbook and e-book form. Each book in the series will take a lighthearted look at a specific topic. The first installment, Longo Looks at Dieting, is available now for preorder on Kindle (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KDZQKRM) for only $2.99. The print version will retail at $4.99. The paperback version of Dieting will be released in tandem with the second chapbook, Longo Looks at Christmas, on November 18.
“Over the years, I’ve had people ask if I was ever going to organize and publish some of my past columns. So I finally got off my tuckus and started doing it,” Longo says. Two more installments are scheduled for release in 2019.
Longo Looks at Dieting “won’t really tell you how to lose weight,” the author says. “Mostly it’ll assure you that you’re not the only one who can go through a colonoscopy prep and actually gain weight. I blame bad genes. Maybe you blame bad jeans. Both are perfectly acceptable excuses.”
Farmer’s Daughter Press, an imprint of Books & Boos Press, is excited to reveal the cover of our upcoming release, Megan and Riley Share the Joy of Christmas by Ken Keeney. The cover and illustrations were done by Ogmios (www.artbyogmios.com).
“I met with the author to talk about what he envisioned for this book. Ken was eager to convey the joy and fun of the holiday season,” said Stacey Harris, managing editor. “I knew immediately that Ogmios would be the perfect artist for the project. We were lucky to get him!”
Megan and Riley Share the Joy of Christmas will be released as a hardcover, paperback, and eBook on November 12. It will be available for preorder on November 5 on Amazon and anywhere books are sold. Click here to preorder.
It’s Monday afternoon. Just chiming in to let you know that the 25% off sale on the Echoes of Darkness paperback ($8.99) and the 50% off sale on the Kindle edition ($1.99) ends at midnight.
Get you physical and digital copies before this sale goes back into the vault as Disney use to say.
August is Peculiar Month!
Books & Boos Press is delighted to have partnered with Sci-Fi Saturday Night to create My Peculiar Family II: Celebrations.
When Chyna Dale discovers antique tintypes of family members she never knew existed, she becomes obsessed with uncovering their mysterious identities. Why hasn’t she heard of them before? What were they like? Most of all, what can this hidden bloodline tell her about herself and her past?
Plagued by questions, Chyna soon discovers that the deeper into her history she goes, the more peculiar her family becomes.
Fifteen established and emerging writers who have been featured on the hit show Sci-fi Saturday Night have been united to explore the strange family history of Chyna Dale in this thrilling new collection of short stories.
