New Kindle release — 13 O’Clock, by the Mesdames of Mayhem!

Posted on: September 21st, 2015 by Carrick Publishing

I can’t believe it’s been two years — count ’em! — since the launch of Thirteen, an anthology of crime stories by the Mesdames of Mayhem!

When we released that critically acclaimed collection of stories, we made a pledge: to follow it up with a second crime anthology within two years.

Let it be noted that the Mesdames are women of their word! At last, and right on time, the Kindle release of 13 O’Clock by the Mesdames of Mayhem (Carrick Publishing, 2015).

Our e-launch on September 17 was a tremendous success, thanks largely to our hostesses, Mesdames’ founder M.H. Callway and author Joan O’Callaghan. Of course, the contributors were out in force to help. Our special thanks to Catherine Astolfo who fielded questions and spread the word.

And of course, there were Kindle Gifts galore! We gave away 13 Kindle copies of 13 O’Clock to readers who participated in our game of questions.
(If you were a winner but haven’t heard from us, we may not have your email address. Please contact me at carrickpublishing at rogers dot com.)

If you were lucky enough to win your copy, Congratulations! We sincerely hope you will enjoy the book, and be sure to post a review on Amazon.

World Enough And Crime ~ daily Feature: The Ultimate Mystery, by M.H. Callway

WORLD ENOUGH AND CRIME***,
(Carrick Publishing, Fall 2014)

At Carrick Publishing, we’re thrilled to be working once again with a group of talented professional authors. It’s been a hell of a ride, and we’re not there yet, but by October we’ll be ready for the release of this exceptional Crime anthology!

Meanwhile, allow us to whet your anticipation. Leading up to the launch of EFD2: World Enough And Crime, we’ll feature daily “snippets” from each of the tantalizing stories.

Stay tuned, folks! This is but the first of many delightful excerpts to follow:

Thirteen — the making of a great Crime anthology!

Posted on: August 23rd, 2013 by Carrick Publishing

THIRTEEN. An anthology of crime storiesOn September 1, Carrick Publishing will be pleased to release THIRTEEN, an anthology of Crime stories by the Mesdames of Mayhem.

But, you may ask, what goes into the creation of such a collection?

First, you need a project manager with a clear, realistic vision; one who can express ideas coherently. She must also possess the ability to excite others, motivating them to meet deadlines and strive for excellence.

Thank you, M.H. Callway, for sharing your creative energy!

Then, you need an outstanding group of authors. These people should ideally hail from various backgrounds, so as to offer a mix of literary ‘flavors’ that will entice readers and keep them interested throughout the book.

Our exceptional collection will include stories from 13 of Canada’s new and seasoned genre authors:

Catherine Astolfo
Rosemary Aubert
Jane Petersen Burfield
M.H. Callway
Melodie Campbell
Donna Carrick
Vicki Delany
Catherine Dunphy
Rosemary McCracken
D.J. McIntosh
Lynne Murphy
Joan O’Callaghan
Sylvia Maultash Warsh

Our gratitude goes out to each of these gifted contributors!

Third, you need a stunning cover. We thank Sara Carrick, graphic designer extraordinaire, for her brilliant work on Thirteen!

Next, you need a core team with unending drive and a passion for words. These people must be willing to put in the hours, toiling to ensure the finished product is one all contributors can be proud of.

You know who you are; thank you.

Finally, selling books is hard work. We’d like to take a moment to thank our own Joan O’Callaghan for her tireless research into the art of book promotion. Joan, your ideas have been invaluable as we rapidly approach our release date!
