For every book we release, we’ll feature an interview with one or two of its major characters. This week we sat down to chat with Flirt the Interchangeable Barmaid and Shoulders, a Disposable, from our next book, The Narrative, which comes out November 15th. Let’s see what these two “little guy” rebels had to say.
Our newest book, The Blessed by Remy Apepp, is out now! This dark literary fantasy is already getting great reviews:
“[Apepp] does a fantastic job of keeping the tension throughout the story.” - Michael Alerich, Prism Review (His full review gives a good, non-spoilery summary of the plot.)
“The Blessed . . . reached deep into my soul . . . wrecked me, healed me, made me feel seen and understood.” - Darcia Helle, Quiet Fury Books

Our third and final (for now) comic con was this past weekend! Sarah and Oscar hit the road, traveling a little farther this time, and stayed overnight in the hotel where the two-day event was held. The Mahoning Valley Comic Con was great fun, and full of cosplayers. See pictures below!
Two cons down, and one more coming up next month! Sarah and Oscar sold our books at the Akron-Summit Comic Con this past Sunday, and they had a blast!
It's that time of year again. . . . We love comic cons and other bookish/nerdy conventions, and we were able to reserve tables at three of them for this summer! The first one was this past Sunday, June 12th: the Pulp Fiction con in Westlake, Ohio. Oscar and I (Sarah) had a lot of fun selling Thinklings' books and other cool merch!
