Today we've had some terrible news. Jolly Fish Press is closing after five years without any notice to the authors. 

While we still have the time to, let's support their authors and let me pitch some cool books to you!

DREAMLESS - Jennifer Wardell
Elena’s sleeping curse was designed without a cure, which means that she’s getting a century-long nap for her eighteenth birthday whether she wants it or not. Amazon
