Find out more about these titles by clicking the buttons.

Jennifer C. Wilson’s A New Page is a collection of historical short stories and poems featuring characters from kings to witches. A New Page will be released on 5th November 2022. You can pre-order the Kindle edition, and it will be downloaded automatically to your e-reader on the launch date.

We are also looking forward to releasing the first of Miriam Drori’s series of murder mysteries, Style and the Solitary, this autumn. Stay tuned for more news about that.
