A Thunderclap for ‘Polly Pink Witch’


Pink Wish Ice Cream, a lovely children’s book by Andrea Kaczmarek, illustrated by Eva Kuenzel, is due for launch soon, and we are promoting it with another Thunderclap. Please click here and join in – we need 100 people, again, to make this promotional tool effective.

pink-wish-catPink Wish Ice Cream deals with a sweet, rounded, good-natured Polly Pink Witch teaching some brats to be nice.  It is a classic kiddies book with classic morals, the type your mum, grand-mother and aunt would have instilled in you.  It’s really simple:  Say “please” and “thank you”, and your wish will be granted; be rude and obnoxious and you forfeit your wish.  This even applies if you’re a mommy trying to bend the rules a little for the sake of your kid…  I’m curious which lessons the other witches will be instilling in potential sequels.

Help Carmen Capuano’s ‘Split Decision’ reach escape velocity!

SDprelimcoverWe’re looking for at least 100 people to help Carmen Capuano‘s new novel Split Decision launch with a bang on 4th of July. We’re doing it using the Thunderclap web application, and we need your support. There’s no money involved, no catch, and only a couple of minutes of mouse-clicking to do. But we have to gather those 100 by the 4th in order for this promotional tool to work.

Will you join in? It will benefit all authors, clients, and potential clients in the long run, because if this campaign is a success then we’ll use it again in the future. Click here to start the process. Thank you in advance.

Only the best wanted!

the-scream-detailIn addition to wanting submissions in the upmarket crime or suspense genre, we have been asked if we can find contemporary women’s fictioncontemporary crime by women authors, and especially at the moment novels with a rural Scottish setting. Do you have something that squarely fits the description? Let us know.

Another publisher is looking for something entirely different – non-fiction books on ‘magick‘, occult, tarot, Old Testament magic, and Egyptology.

Politely, we ask – please don’t send us anything that’s only peripheral or tangental to these subjects. We’re looking for material that is right on topic in every case.


Carmen Capuano moves into journalism

GEM-SWB-2013-04carmen2Our client Carmen Capuano has been head-hunted by Gem Media, and vibrant and growing media company in Birmingham. Carmen is to be Copy Editor and columnist of Gem Magazine, the glossy, go-to magazine for food, wine, fashion, beauty, motoring, health, gardening, heritage, culture, house, and home for Birmingham and its core districts. The magazine has events management at its heart; Carmen will be taking over her duties in the July issue and is set to provide insights into her creative writing process and to her daily life in the column.

“I am delighted to be involved with this informative and inspirational magazine. I have always read GEM with great interest and it’s wonderful to think that I will be a part of it now,” said Carmen.

Said a spokesperson for the group, on the appointment, “We are so pleased to be welcoming Carmen onto our team. We feel that she has an often quirky and unique take on life and are sure that she will entertain our readers in her own inimitable style.”

We know Carmen’s talents first-hand, and we’re sure she will make a success of this new venture.
