Huge excitement here at Ocelot Press as The Ghostly Father, Sue Barnard’s wonderful rewriting of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, is launched in audiobook format! This is the first – but certainly not the last – of the Ocelot list to become an audiobook, and more will follow soon.
In the meantime, you can now listen to The Ghostly Father in the car, on the train, while you’re doing household or gardening tasks, or even in the bath (but be careful not to drop it in the water!). The possibilities are endless.
Think you know the world’s most famous love story? Think again. The alternative version of Romeo and Juliet, The Ghostly Father, is now in #audiobook format. @OcelotPress
If you haven’t already come across this lovely story, here’s the description:
Think you know the world’s most famous love story? Think again. What if the story of Romeo and Juliet really happened – but not quite in the way we’ve all been told?
This part-prequel, part-sequel to the original tale, told from the point of view of the Friar, tells how an ancient Italian manuscript reveals secrets and lies which have remained hidden for hundreds of years, and casts new doubts on the official story of Shakespeare’s famous star-crossed lovers.
If you love the Romeo and Juliet story but are disappointed with the way it ended, this is the book for you.
The Ghostly Father has two narrators: Danielle Cohen, a rising star in the audiobook narration world, who can master an amazing range of accents; and Philip Rose, a voice actor with long experience in voice-overs and audiobook narration.
Today is an exciting day for us here at Ocelot Press, since we’re adding another wonderful title to our stable of historical fiction reads. The Raided Heart, Jennifer C. Wilson’s 15th-century historical romance, set in the Scottish Borders, is published today. It’s available on Amazon Kindle and in paperback.
We’re incredibly proud of our fellow author Cathie Dunn, whose historical romance A Highland Captive is on a roll right now!
Not only has this great adventure set in late 13th-century Scotland been awarded a Chill With a Book Readers’ Award, but it has also been longlisted for a prestigious Chanticleer Book Award. We’re keeping fingers crossed for the next round.
The CHATELAINE Book Awards recognize emerging new talent and outstanding works in the genre of Romantic Fiction and Women’s Fiction. The Chatelaine Book Awards is a genre division of Chanticleer International Book Awards ( The #CIBAs).
Here’s what Chill With a Book had to say:
Thoroughly enjoyable book; I liked everything about it. I felt this book was very well balanced, has an engaging & interesting storyline; good, strong characters; true to the period without overdoing the barbarity.
A Highland Captive is available from Amazon in Kindle and paperback formats.
And Cathie’s latest novel, to be published on 28th November, is now on pre-order on Amazon Kindle: a dual timeline story set in the Languedoc area of Southwest France in the present day and the 8th century. Buy now and pay nothing until publication.
Here at Ocelot Press we hope you’ve had a great summer. We’re excited to announce two new historical romance titles to be published under the Ocelot Press imprint this autumn: Jennifer C. Wilson’s The Raided Heart and Cathie Dunn’s Love Lost in Time. A distinguished pair of titles to add to our growing stable of historical fiction, both stories taking place in atmospheric settings. Read more about them below. And you can pre-order them both now!
Dunn take you back to the dark days of the Scottish Wars of Independence in
her new novel, A Highland Captive – a historical adventure romance set
in the west of Scotland, and the second tale in Cathie’s Highland Chronicles
series of standalone novels.
