    End of September Updates

    Big news all around! First up, the final re-release from Meredith’s backlist: Hair to the Throne (Pandemonium #3): F/F (cis/trans) friends-to-lovers. A hairdresser is reunited with her long-lost best friend after they’re captured by a many-eyed demon prince and need to scheme their way to freedom.

    And with that, we’re all caught up! All of Meredith’s books are now available — check them out and see if there’s something you might want to pick up! (We especially suggest Empty Vessels or Only Human for halloween-appropriate reads).

    As well…

    ¡Nuevo libro!  SEÑALES DE HUMO. Un romance gay enmarcado en el género de fantasía urbana. Un agente de atención al cliente tiene que ayudar a un atractivo y multimillonario dragón cambiaformas. Reserva ahora y léelo el 1 de octubre.

    Which is to say, Smoke Signals has a Spanish translation available releasing tomorrow, October 1! If you speak Spanish and fancy a human/dragon m/m urban fantasy, check it out! And, of course, if you’d rather just read that in English, you can do that over here.

    Other big October news? It’s time for my yearly queer halloween Interactive Fiction! Every day in October, I’ll post a section of the story, and your comments will help determine how it goes for the next day! Go here to get started, or check out what we did in previous years. This year is going to be f/f, a lil spooky, and a lil cozy! Let’s just say there will be some soft cryptids involved.

    Speaking of soft cryptids, our last bit of news isn’t book-related at all. Meet the new addition to our family, Jester!

    Small update

    Another busy couple of weeks! Not too much new, but we’ve rereleased another two of Meredith’s backlog:

    • The Cobbler’s Soleless Son (Pandemonium #1) by Meredith Katz: M/NB. A queer and sexy fairytale(?) The cobbler’s son, a young man with no risk assessment ability and a fondness for demons, goes on a quest to seduce a shapeshifting demon prince.
    • Behind Bars (Pandemonium #2) by Meredith Katz: Queer fantasy dystopian M/NB enemies-to-lovers. Bisexual & non-binary. After the loss of his wife, Pel would do anything to protect his son from demons… but now he might have to get involved with one.

    As always, if you could retweet on twitter or otherwise review or give us a boost, that’d be super helpful.

    Cover Reveal: Empty Vessels

    We are extremely excited to reveal the new cover for Empty Vessels! Originally released by Less Than Three Press, we’re working to re-release Meredith’s backlist independently, and since Empty Vessels is the first book in the Sixth Sense Investigations series (with the first sequel being released in late 2019!) we wanted a new look for it that we could carry over through additional books in the series.

    Please check out the Artstation of the fantastic RubyDianArts who made this cover absolutely come to life. You’re the best, Dian ♥

    Empty Vessels will be available for purchase again both in ebook and print within the next few weeks! I for one am beyond excited to hold this gorgeous book in my hands and stare soulfully at the Horned Boy’s beautiful, beautiful face.

    Haunted by the ghost of the man who saved his life at the cost of his own, Keith has developed an awareness beyond what humans can normally sense—a world of spirits, monsters, and fascinating people that can only be described as Others. When he starts to have prophetic dreams about strange creatures hunting down helpless Others, he realizes that there has to be something only he can do.

    Accompanied by Lucas, his best friend despite the complex feelings around his death, and the Horned Boy, a beautiful and mysterious Other, Keith knows that he has to confront his feelings and his fears in order to find his place in this new, strange world—and to protect the things that he’s coming to love.
