First of all I need to apologize about the lie in the heading. There are unfortunately no fresh Woollies dates on sale at P’kaboo.
P’kaboo: Release of “From my Cold Undead Hand” imminent
I’m still pretty chuffed about the way this author, with her exciting and fast-moving style, responded to my “vampire challenge” with a novel that will leave you checking under your bed at night. That is, if you’re brave. Otherwise it might take some rescue remedy to get you off to sleep – plus a night light and a handgun loaded with a silver b… wait, that’s werewolves.
Did I mention that the ebook is available for pre-orders?
Please note: The ebook is available for pre-orders on the P’kaboo Bookshop site. Pre-ordering will mean you receive your copy as soon as the ebook is released.
There is also a surprise waiting for the first 25 copies ordered.
The inimitable Douglas Pearce. We meet again, with his second novel published by Honeymead Books:
If John Pernelli believed in doppelgangers he might well have had second thoughts about boarding British Airways flight 226 from La Guardia airport. Mind you, even if he had had a last minute change of heart, it is doubtful whether the two grey-suited men in dark glasses sitting either side of him in first class would have allowed him not to board.
If you enjoyed “Almost Dead In Suburbia”, get ready for an even faster, funnier and more confusing trip, this one taking you into France, to meet with secret police, fat-cat politicians, and… aliens…
Some people have compared Douglas Pearce’s style to that of Terry Pratchett. Personally, it reminds me more of Douglas Adams, in its way-out ideas and fast execution of the same.
They say laughter is good for your health. Do yourself a favour and get a copy of this vitamin D. You will not regret it.
For a limited time, all ebooks on Honeymead Books will be priced at $2.99 to fit your pocket.
Talking of challenges, Pearce is right now working on a book that will be a little bit – on the juicier side, if you like. It too started with a challenge.
Honeymead is ideal to represent books such as his: Rebellious political viewpoints, highlighting the thorns on religious rosebushes, and thoroughly challenging your view on reality without the author having to look over his shoulder to see if any parents are offended every time he wants to write “merde! Le cochon a croupi dans la boue!”. (P’kaboo would never allow his piggies to get away with that kind of wallowing. )
We are considering restricting Honeymead to readers who can prove that they are not currently raising, or involved in raising, children (own or otherwise). This will rule out parents, teachers, sports coaches, child psychologists and occupational therapists, and in short, everyone involved in any way in the under-16 industries.
P’kaboo: Mercury Silver
For a limited time we are making FREE EBOOK COPIES of the short-story collection “Mercury Silver” available on P’kaboo. They are free right now.
8 authors contributed wildly varying shortstories to “Mercury Silver” which was named after the Roman messenger of the Gods, winged Mercury, who is the patron god of writers, poets, merchants and… thieves. (Yeah. Well. Those Romans are crazy.)
These stories are a very good combination for readers who love a varied diet. Explore, experience! Enjoy a stress-free Saturday afternoon.
