Kudos go out to Susan Jane Bigelow, author of the Extrahumans series, on the occasion of her second starred review in Publishers Weekly! “Filled with hairpin plot turns, breathtaking escapes, compelling characters, and a profound sense of humanity, this installment of the Extrahuman series expands upon an already fascinating universe and leaves the reader hungry […]
Preorders for Matchbox Girls by Chrysoula Tzavelas are now open! They’re going gangbusters, and that means that we’ve started offering escalators to keep the momentum up. We’ve already passed our first goal, which means that everyone who preorders will get a short-story prelude to the action of the novel, and we’re about to announce another […]
Candlemark & Gleam books have been getting some great reviews in some pretty prestigious journals lately! First up, we have (re)Visions: Alice! In its December 2011 edition, Midwest Book Review says: The story of Alice in Wonderland is viewed by many in different ways. “(re) Visions: Alice” is a retelling of the tales of Alice […]
Congratulations to the immensely talented A.M. Tuomala, whose debut novel Erekos just earned a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly! Debut author Tuomala poetically crafts a complex tale of war and love. Swamp witch Achane loves her dying sister so much that she traps the young woman’s soul in her corpse as a zombi. Inspired by […]
There’s been an awful lot of praise coming in for Broken, including this from the man known as Smarriveur: I don’t often recommend books. I’ll mention if I’m quite enjoying a series, or blown away by an author. Generally, I’m rereading things these days anyway, and I don’t have much time to do so, so […]
We’re absolutely blown away to have gotten a “Best Of” recognition in our very first year, with our very first title. That’s right, Cold Iron & Rowan Wood, a book blog you should really be reading, decided that Erekos is the best book put out by a small publisher that’s crossed their path this year. […]
The reviews keep on comin’ – this time, an incredibly thoughtful and in-depth review by Cold Iron & Rowan Wood. The review is almost as good as the book!
Another review for Erekos has come in, this time from the amazing folks at The Book Smugglers. So far, it seems that the only major complaints from ANYONE are “it’s very literary” and “MOAR ACTION PLZ!” Honestly, I can’t tell you how pleased this makes me. Erekos is, in fact, a very literary, meta novel…and […]
Reviews of Erekos are starting to come in, and this week looks to be a biggie. Bibliognome is doing a whole week of goodness, ranging from a Sentence Sneak Peek to a review to a giveaway to an interview tomorrow. Meanwhile, The Discriminating Fangirl gave the book a GREAT review, and I have to say […]
There is an absolutely phenomenal review of Erekos up over at Paperback Dolls, a book blog you should really be reading if you aren’t already. Plus, there’s an interview with A. M. Tuomala, a guest post by lil’ ol’ me, and multiple ways to win a copy of the book! Go! Read! Enjoy!
