Exciting news. My good friend Ankhesen Mie is back with an awesome new title that you're going to want to grab:
Middle Child Press is proud to present Folklore and Other Stories:
When young Kazuya Kurosaki orders the disposal of a rival’s favorite, beautiful Amisi Ryan shows up with a "'thank you'...from the dead". Her priceless gift, an approximately four-thousand-year-old solid gold mask, lures Kazuya into a world of myth and intoxicating fantasy, and with each telling of an ancient tale, he finds himself drawn further and further away from everything - and everyone - he knows.
Rory Zheng is a young traveler who arrives at Silver Wood Manor, an enchanting residence atop a mountain where he meets an array of characters. Among them are the mischievous old Irishman who designed the buildings and the chatty nine-year-old daughter of the beautiful, somber landlady of Silver Wood, whose husband is often away....
To unlock the mystery and history of the manor and its people, Rory employs some magic of his own: the art of storytelling.
The divorce between Jason Rang and his filthy rich, soon-to-be ex-wife Mireille is actually going well. Or at least it does until Jason lets his new fiancée Maribel actually meet Mireille. Invited to Mireille’s newly inherited mansion (fully furnished with all manner of beautiful shirtless young men), Jason and Maribel find themselves lulled into a sensual world where they learn that sometimes - but only sometimes - an entire divorce proceeding can be just another lovers' quarrel.
For those of you who are always stating how you wish there was more diversity in publishing and how you wish you could support more marginalized voices, here's a perfect opportunity to do so. Middle Child Press is a wonderful publisher, Ankhesen Mie is an incredible writer, and voices like theirs need to be uplifted like yesterday.
