Cold Saké, first of our large-print editions

One of the demographics usually overlooked by the entertainment industry is people with disabilities. We see this in gaming, with games that challenge the hand-eye coordination of even fully able bodies. We see this in online video, where closed captioning is considered extra, not essential. And we see it in book publishing, where but a tiny fraction of books are ever released in large-print editions.

We want to change that, at least for our books, so we've started laying out large-print editions of our more popular titles.

We started with Katherine M. Lawrence's Cold Saké because it is short and, well, it was the first book we published. The large-print edition of Cold Saké is already available on Amazon and will be rolling out as available to other retailers in the coming days.

New release: A Spy in Stilettos (A Comedy of Manners, Politics, and a Little Sex)

With this book by Laura Lis Scott, we add a new genre to our mix of titles: the contemporary women's political satire career novel.

Melody Baker desperately needs a job.
She gets one as a parlor maid in a huge mansion--actually, it's a castle. Does she know what she's doing? Of course not.
She has to deal with entitled aristocrats, Washington wonks, delusional dilettantes, a chauvinistic charlatan, and myriad other odd birds who dominate this new world in which Melody is a stranger.
But she's smart. She even has a PhD.
And that's important, because her new boss is an eccentric billionaire who has political plans and she's going to need to think fast in order to survive as...
The Candidate's Maid: A Spy in Stilettos
Shamelessly idolizes New York values!
— a presidential candidate not from New York
Available here from our store,
as well as from Amazon,

Barnes & Noble, and your favorite bookseller.

Book Two of the series, The Colonel's Secret Service, is available for Kindle pre-order. We'll have more on that here soon.

Heroines of Fantasy review of Cold Blood

Carlyle Clark writes:

Still, at no time was I bored or worried that major conflict would not be forthcoming, in fact the pace of the story mirrored the feel of the times, which was probably and intentional choice by the author. I can’t tell you why I believe that because it would be a spoiler. In fact, revealing any of the interesting things would be spoilers because they are all weaved together to create a strong ending in which Lawrence was deft enough to play off of reader’s expectations (and my own personal fear this story might tread down the well-worn road toward a condescending but common type of development) to create surprises toward the end which makes me confident she knew what she was doing. You don’t write an excellent story by accident.

That's just a snippet. Read the whole thing.
