While we could sing our own praise, we'll let Kirkus do it for us: 

"His prose is brisk and funny, its tone set by Haskell’s comic kvetching and hand-wringing. (“I might become radioactive and turn into one of those green, hairy creatures I read about in my comic books,” he frets after reading about toxic waste in the San Fernando Valley.) Haskell’s endless neurotic uncertainty over who to be and what to do will captivate readers. An entertaining and perceptive YA take on the predicament of gay adolescence." - Kirkus Reviews

Today is the release of Haskell Himself by the immensely talented, Gary Seigel!

Congrats Gary!

Meet Haskell Hodge. At sixteen he’s already garnered so...

Keep Forever

By Alexa Kingaard

Now that Paul O’Brien has returned from serving in Vietnam, he wants nothing more than to piece together a meaningful life. But the war-spawned, guilt-driven nightmares won't stop haunting him. Elizabeth, the woman who loves him most, is committed to helping him overcome the obstacles in their path. ​

Despite living in an era where veterans refuse to speak of their pain, are ignored by the bureaucracy that put them in harm's way, and are vilified by public opinion, the couple is determined to live in love. Together...

We hope you all had a fantastic holiday. Our best gift this season was a new author! We're excited to announce that D. James McGee has signed with Acorn Publishing. His debut novel, BEAUTY IS THE BEAST, will be out this July!

Domnic “DJames” McGee was born in Leeds, West Yorkshire. A sickly child, he was raised in a council estate to a single mother. At school, he was a poor student and failed dismally.

He developed a passion for martial arts, so in his teens, he moved to Ireland where he trained full-time while working in menial jobs to survive.

A chance encounter then gave him the opportunity to work as an Executive Protection Agent for some of the most influenti...

Congratulations to author Pamela McCord, The Haunting of Elmwood Manor: A Pekin Dewlap Mystery is out today IN ITALY!

You probably can't read this...but that's why it's SO COOL!!

Pekin Dewlap non vede fantasmi da quando ha compiuto dodici anni, ma farebbe qualsiasi cosa per rivivere quell’esperienza.

It's official! Acorn Publishing has signed author, Loran Holt. She will be releasing her debut middle grade fantasy series, NIGHTMASTERS, in June 2020 and we are so excited!!

Recently retired from a job as a University Professor, and looking for diversion in sunny Southern California, Loran Holt did what any Southern Californian does – took up writing, of course. Feeling that sword-and-sorcery suited her personality admirably, she set her sights on that genre. Nightmasters is the result and her first published work of fiction, but she is already the published author of two books on the Silent Film era, with a third on the way.

Dead Ringer is officially out!! Another amazing book by our lovely Kat Ross. She blows us away every single time.

A poisonous secret.
A terrifying curse.
And a client she’d just as soon see dead in a ditch….

Summer 1889. Harrison Fearing Pell hoped for adventure when she signed on with the Society for Psychical Research as an occult investigator. Slogging through New York’s sewers in pursuit of a “mud man” wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. But the reeking monster terrorizing the dance halls of the Tenderloin leads her to an even more peculiar mystery — and the last man on earth Harry wishes to become entangled with.

James Moran is a prodigy in music, mathematics . . . a...

What Remains

Poetry by Carol Ann Heasley

Carol's poems are "in the moment" experiences, where at the root of every word is a bond between the speaker and subject of the poem. Although at times beautiful, there is a stark reminder of our humanity. She employs free verse in various forms. The poetry exemplifies humankind's place in the universe, through settings which range over time and space. The inspiration for Carol's work derives from the spirit - the chi- that transports us beyond the disrepair of our world.
