Kevin Roberts

We're proud of the Bunch who gathered here!:

Both Michael Kanaly, who lives in New York State, and Kevin Roberts, who comes to Canada via Australia, reflect an international approach which will expand even more.  This press keeps transmuting with the times. Continue to look for releases year-round and not just in publishing 'seasons'.  However, Caren and I have always viewed this press as a consortium of thoughts. And as we both move deeper into the world of film, the Press is now evolving its own direction. Behind each of these books is a simple principle. We'd choose the writers, but the writers would choose which book they wanted to write. Each book needed the author's passion.

In this age we all combine forces -  a group of people want to get great books to great readers. 

Readers love the heft of a book; the way it fits in a pocket or a backpack. We all imagine the look of books on window ledges of small cabins; in high rise buildings, on buses, on subways. And we love the pixels yarning & weaving stories on a lit screen.

 May these books be carried around the world like lanterns - each holding a necessary spark.


Michael Kanaly's new Book - is launching in October.

On October 31st of 2019 

NEW EYES

                             ...A Powerful & Disturbing new novel from Michael Kanaly.

Criminal Minds meets Ancient Aliens in a chilling tale of murder and mayhem.

Nobody writes serial killers like Michael Kanaly.

“Days, weeks passed and the slaughter took on a new savagery. Anyone with information on this police composite of a white male in his late-to-mid thirties should contact the Seattle Police Department…

-The remains of a Stillwater girl have been discovered…

-This Middle School in Lincoln, Nebraska, is mourning the loss of a dozen school mates…

-Police believe that a shallow grave discovered yesterday by hikers may contain the body of a missing college student from…

-In yet another school shooting, seventeen children and three adult teachers were gunned down in Madison, Wisconsin…

On and on and on, the slaughter claimed its innocent victims…”

Why, of course, remains the question.

Acclaimed author, Michael Kanaly, examines this question in his latest novel, NEW EYES.   A story that looks into the heart of humanity…our past, present, and future…seeking answers to who and what we are.

NEW EYES is a page-turning, genuinely frightening book.
