We’re delighted to announce the publication of three new titles this autumn, with more to come later on.
Sue Barnard’s Nice Girls Don’t and Finding Nina were launched last week. These two stories about family secrets are linked but can be read as standalones. They are available in Kindle and paperback editions from Amazon.

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.
In another month or so, my murdery mystery, Style and the Solitary, will be republished under the Ocelot Press banner.
I thought this would be a good time to tell you what the novel is about, tweaking a post I first wrote for friend and author, Jo Fenton.
Belief in Another Person
The story of Beauty and the Beast was first written in 1740 by a woman called Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve. It wasn’t intended as a children’s fairy tale, but rather as a tale with a moral. It is Beauty’s belief and love for the Beast that turns him back into a prince. Similarly, Nathalie’s belief in Asaf will help him in his attempt to become the person he was meant to be.
The similarity of my novel to Beauty and the Beast is, of course, the reason for its similar title.
There’s a lot going on at Ocelot Press right now. We’re thrilled to announce that two Ocelot Press authors, Nancy Jardine and Cathie Dunn, have done extremely well in the Coffee Pot Book Club Book of the Year Awards 2022. Congratulations to both!
Nancy’s Before Beltane, a prequel to her atmospheric Celtic Fervour series, took the gold medal in the Ancient World Historical Fiction category.
Cathie Dunn’s The Shadows of Versailles, set amidst the intrigue of Louis XIV’s glittering court, took the bronze medal in two categories: European Historical Fiction and Early Modern Historical Fiction.
Both books are cracking reads. You can read more about them and buy copies on the links below:
