We've got a lot going on, so check it out.

    New Books

    During November, we pubished WITCH-FINDER by Vanessa Knipe--a fantasy with the adventures of the Church of England's dedicated witch-finders. Time is running out on your chance to buy this great collection for only $1 (regular price is $3.99). Here is the cover and a bit of detail:

    Demonic elementals, vampires, krakens, werewolves, and other monsters aren't as mythical as many of us believe. They roam the English countryside, playing their games, fighting their wars, and claiming the souls of many humans. Although many deny their existance, the Church of England is not among the doubters. A special branch of the Church, headquartered at the College of St. Van Helsing, battles demons and attempts to save fallen humans before their souls are devoured. Author Vanessa Knipe spins us stories of the faculty and students of St. Van Helsing--of their successes and failures in this eternal battle. Only $3.99--but it's on introductory sale for only $1.00 until December 18, 2008--what a great holiday gift. As always, you can read a free excerpt before buying. Check it out here.
