Full disclosure: I’m biased toward our print books because I think our cover designers top themselves with every book and these books are not only a joy to read, but a joy to look at, flash around, and hold in your own dear hands while reading. Yes, I’m funny that way. But I also live in the 21st century, which has technologies that allow me to publish books on a small scale, and so I feel inclined to give eBooks a nod, even if I don’t like reading them myself. Here ends the sermon. Please enjoy our Wapshott Press eBooks.

Posted onMay 1, 2010|Comments Off on 5 Star Review at Amazon and Barnes and Noble for “Dr. Hackenbush Gets a Job”
“I was enthralled by this book. After hitting the bottom of the first page I never looked back. I was pulled into the world of Dr. Hackenbush and her endeavors to deal with life on her own terms. Forced by the untimely death of the transmission of her Karmann-Ghia and the destruction of her baritone ukulele to return to the world of industry, she takes a job with a temporary agency. Complications ensue.”

The Pajama Boy review at The Gay Blade. One small correction: The Pajama Boy was serialized online (see sidebar) after it was published as a book. But, yay! A review! The reviews and press page (see sidebar, everything is on the sidebar) is updated.
“‘His first vivid, visual impression was of Redmantyl standing over him in the morning sunlight, so tall and red and bright that the wizard had been burned into Orlan’s memory. Indeed, Orlan marked his life from that moment, when all the light and strength and wondrous magic of the world had stepped into his childish awareness. He believed he had known he belonged to that man, even before he knew who Lord Redmantyl was. Before that, there was nothing.
“‘That summer, he began to test the unyielding barrier which kept him from his childhood—his father’s spell, placed upon him years ago. Until now, he had accepted it: who would wish to look back on dirt and poverty and misery when he lived in an ivory castle of magic? Orlan had not tried to remember, but his visit to Storm Port made him attempt to recall a past which had been kept from him. He wanted to know about his mother and the life he had known with her at Lammouthe. Could the spell be broken? He was a magician of some skill himself. Surely he could undo this. He must know: what had he been before his father had brought him to Wizardes Cliff?’
“Orlan Lightesblood is the son of the world’s most powerful wizard and is training to become a wizard himself. But beyond his father’s castle, he is still an innocent youth, defenseless against the evil and temptations that threaten the future laid out for him. On an alternate earth filled with wonder and danger, the wizard’s son must overcome the demons of his own past and his father’s enemies to survive to manhood.”
