Pumpkins, ghosts, black cats and witches…

30 Sep

What do they all add up to? Yes..it’s Halloween time of the year again. Halloween, as I mentioned in my post this time last year, is not a Czech Tradition, although it is slowly catching on. As a cultural ‘English’ language lesson it features on our school timetable now.

Many of the candy stores have Halloween candy and Prague plays host to many a Halloween party.

So…this year my blog has a very special feature to celebrate Halloween the whole month long!

Everyday we will have a post of a book published by Gypsy Shadow Publishing house that has a Halloweenish theme. Book browsing brought to your computer!

You will be able to read something about the authors, see their work and even have direct links where to buy them. Do keep checking throughout the month, there is definitely something for YOU.

Now just a bit about Gypsy Shadow Publishing itself.

Gypsy Shadow Publishing is a new electronic publishing company that came into being September 1, 2009. Its founders, Denise Bartlett and Charlotte Holley, are veteran authors themselves and have worked in various aspects of the print world for decades. With experience ranging from writing short stories and poetry to full length novels, newspaper columns and reviews to news and investigative articles, Bartlett and Holley are not strangers to the written word.

Gypsy Shadow Publications began its journey by following the trend toward eBook publications and other innovative publishing concepts. Each of the principals has a love of and commitment to providing quality, professional, exciting works to the public. Gypsy Shadow came into being as an Indie publishing company for the purpose of giving new and seasoned authors alike a chance to shine in the world of the written word, without some of the hype and pressure of more conventional established companies.

We pledge our utmost dedication to you in publishing manuscripts that are both professionally edited and formatted as well as new and creative. We feel the publishing community affords room for new ideas, such as experimental and multi-genre stories and novels, and we encourage authors to explore their imaginations to produce concepts that have not received the acclaim they deserve.
