New Release–Souria by Laird Ryan States

cover

We’re pleased to announce the release of the new short collection by Laird Ryan States, Souria.

Souria is a collection of two short stories in his Sel Souris cycle, and an excellent jumping on point for readers in advance of the winter release of Sleeping Underwater, his first full length novel.

At the present time, Souria is available as an ebook on Amazon.  A print edition is forthcoming next week for those of you who prefer the ink on paper experience.

Souria can be purchased here on Amazon.com or here on Amazon.ca.  It is available as well through all international Amazon markets.

Souria is also available in print here at Lulu.

If you buy it, please review it.  Good or bad, reviews help independent authors gain traction in the marketplace.

Thanks for your support!

As part of a sales contest a short while ago, Gayleen Froese, author of the newest release from The ASP, What The Cat Dragged In, and her dog Spenser (the lead character, as it happens, of that same book) are posing to recreate several iconic books. Because it’s fun, that’s why.

You can find out more about her book, and buy it by heading over here-ish.

50 Shades of Spenny, Day 1

unnamed (3)

It gives me great pleasure to present the first in the seven photo shoot for 50 Shades of Spenny.  About a week ago, Gayleen Froese and Spenser agreed to take a photo of themselves re-enacting a famous novel (and NOT, he said, under threat of violence, a favorite), for every copy of What The Cat Dragged In sold in a short period of time.This is her making good on that promise.

Today we show Gayleen and Spenser as Mrs, and Norman Bates.
If you like this shot, and haven’t bought it yet, you should definitely read Spenser’s first case in What The Cat Dragged In, available from The ASP here.
While you’re here, have a look around.  Buy my book also.
I’m not proud.  I’ll shill.  Watch me shill.
Oh, and, my god, we so could not have done this so well without the assistance of Val and Iain Little and the Clown Cartel
