Our second terrifying volume of Valentine’s Day horror stories has received a huge response from readers. Hearts Asunder Vol. 2 makes the eighth title from StarkLight Press to sell out from its online sources. To all our readers and fans, I say, Way to Break the Internet!

I am pleased to announce that this chilling collection of tales is now available again through the StarkLight Press Bookstore!

In addition to this title, look for our second volume of Shamrocks, Saints and Standing Stones, coming in early March from StarkLight Press.

 

Game Changers Available!

*drumroll please*

game-changers-cover1

Announcing Game Changers Volume 1- a collection of imaginative stories inspired by history’s greatest men!

A companion volume to our Great Ladies anthology of Women Who Changed the World, this book features a bevy of tales about historical figures like Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Alexander, Martin Luther King Jr. and more!

Don’t expect this to be dry, history textbook fare. Each story is a vibrantly imagined tale inspired by history, but adding the unmistakable, fascinating storytelling for which Great Ladies is known.

Albert Einstein with aliens? Dark, mysterious Gods seducing Alexander the Great? Only the beginning of the tales you’ll find in this remarkable collection- available from the StarkLight Press Bookstore, or through this link via Amazon

This hasn’t stopped it from being an extremely special time. Last year we released the ‘Hearts Asunder’ anthology and this year we released the second anthology of the same title.
