I’m going to keep this short – it’s nearly bedtime after all – but today is a very exciting day. I’m pleased to announce that the first quarter of 2013 will see the publication of Milton Strange and the Astral Projector, by first time author “Merlin” Mackinnon, as a lush Falcon Berger paperback. This is a fast-paced (but incredibly detailed) fantasy novel, set at a magical research facility on the coast of England.

The following image shows what the cover will probably look like. As with our previous book covers and illustrations, it was made using the brilliant – and free – Inkscape software.

The premise is that our world is one of many that make up the Multiverse. Of the others, some are friendly and some are hostile, but all can be seen and even visited using a magical invention called the Astral Projector.

That isn’t our only plan for 2013. A brand new space adventure for Bradley and Grandpa – book three of this growing series by Philip Threadneedle – is expected in late February. It’s called The Richest Man on Mars, and we think it’s the best one yet.

Lastly, we’re going to be releasing Kindle editions of our existing catalogue, starting with The Trumblebuggins by Harry Ladd.

That’s all for tonight. Hope you’re enjoying 2013!
