Happy Publication Day to A. W. Jackson, Chris Coppel, Jeremy Bending and Kelley Tantau! Our September releases are now available from all major retailers.
Madame Voodoo by A. W. Jackson
With witchcraft taking centre stage, contemporary tale of self discovery resonates with the under-represented.
A stunningly original and captivating tale that achieves the author’s aim of putting the overlooked and under-represented firmly in the limelight, Madame Voodoo is a contemporary literary triumph and a truly relatable YA read.
In a narrative that covers many of life’s bigger issues – the death of a parent, coming out as gay and loneliness – this debut novel by A. W. Jackson will instantly resonate with those struggling to find their place in our judgemental world.
This poignant and validatory novel offers a magic-laden, relatable and accomplished literary middle finger to all those bright and shiny people who have passed over the chance to connect with some of the best humankind has to offer.
Last Light by Chris Coppel
A collection of chilling short stories that will haunt the reader long after the final page.
Immersing the reader in nine different ghostly tales, Chris Coppel’s latest work reinforces his growing and well-deserved reputation as the next Stephen King.
Brimming with scares and paranormal mayhem on par with literature’s horror greats, the author certainly lives up to his father’s legacy (the genius behind Vertigo, Alec Coppel).
Last Light offers several gripping tales of the paranormal that demonstrate Coppel’s unmatched literary skill and will delight this accomplished author’s ever-growing fanbase.
Impulses by Jeremy Bending
This intriguing new psychological novel questions how a pillar of respectability finds himself free falling into the depths of depravity.
Impulses follows the story of respectable professional Brian Stewart and his abject decline into compulsive gambling and arrest for rape.
Delivering a multi-faceted protagonist in a narrative that keeps readers guessing as to the reasons for such a devastating personality change, this fast-paced and intriguing novel is not only hard to put down, but also provides an insight into the distress put upon partners when they are confronted with the psychological meltdown of those they love.
Well-conceived and intellectually sharp, Impulses is a mind-bending read that lingers long after its last page and positions the author as a substantive talent to seek out online or in the bookshop.
The Runaway Man by Kelley Tantau
This compelling new novel questions whether one man’s efforts to disappear are worth it.
The Runaway Man is a fast-paced and intriguing narrative that follows the story of Nick Greene, and his decision to walk away from the here and now, and start life afresh.
Immersing readers from the outset in the beauty of her native New Zealand, the author quickly showcases there is more to her protagonist than simply a man who wants a fresh start, weaving a tale that prompts readers to consider whether taking such drastic action could ever be worth the repercussions and consequences that lay in its wake.
Keen to point out that no heroes feature in her novel, simply well-intentioned characters with their own agendas, and using her journalistic skills to showcase her creativity and incite curiosity and compassion from her readers, this first published work by Kelley Tantau (and launchpad for her planned series) is both plausible and beautifully crafted, delivering a compelling read that is as much about humanity as it is a mystery.
