As publisher at Parisian Phoenix, I have so many plans, hopes & manuscripts to pursue. As I’ve mentioned, we’re nearly done with the line edit of Not an Able-Bodied White Man with Money, so once the copyright returns from the Library of Congress we will be putting that project to bed— and into print.
Joan Z’s fun still-life photography featuring the residents of Plastiqueville has been submitted to Art Director Gayle Hendricks for her to insert into the body of Trapped, Parisian Phoenix’s first contemporary romance, packed with humor and reality. That will be out once it receives its final line edit.
And meanwhile, the third book of the Fashion and Fiends series, Recovery, is in the final stages of its last editorial review. This book deepens the paranormal mystery that began in Manipulations and explores the medical, military career of Jacqueline Saint-Ébène. And touches on some important feminist and religious themes.
(And I am also writing Road Trip, book four of Fashion of Fiends, which I hope to have ready for Summer 2022. The book is a werewolf Bildungsroman featuring Jules Zweigenbaum, the chef who joined the series in Courting Apparitions, and his kid sister, Minette.)
I am also speaking with an author who is self-publishing a memoir who I would love to have as part of the Parisian Phoenix family.
Our poetry editor Nancy Scott came over today, and imagine our pleasure when the delivery person dropped off a box of what we knew were Darrell Parry’s poetry book, Twists: Gathered Ephemera. We immediately texted Darrell and paused our work on Not an Able-Bodied White Man with Money.
Darrell came over for an unboxing. You can see it here on YouTube.
I love everyone’s genuine smiles.
Darrell will be adding various ephemera to his books.
It’s exciting to see our vision turn into reality and we hope you would consider ordering titles of our books.
So, to reiterate… contact us at ParisianPhoenix@gmail.com if you wish to order any of our books directly from us. We accept Venmo currently, but hope to get other financial options up-and-running.
