Next week’s events: an origin story and a GLVWG workshop

Parisian Phoenix has passed its nine month anniversary this month. This business is like a new relationship: every month matters.

On June 23, Not the Quiet French Kid, a novelette from the Fashion and Fiends series focused on the origin story ofContinue reading “Next week’s events: an origin story and a GLVWG workshop”

End of May update and all the fun: new novelette, podcasts and book reviews

Greetings friends and readers, it’s Angel, founder and publisher of Parisian Phoenix Publishers. The independent publisher environment is brutal as a start-up because online algorithms, social media, and the book selling market create so much noise that independent authors and publishers remain invisible without a lot of work, support and creativity. Our own results andContinue reading “End of May update and all the fun: new novelette, podcasts and book reviews”

An exciting Thursday— a new volume of Fashion & Fiends, a new poem and a new author

Today a new author joined Parisian Phoenix — nonagenarian Charles Ticho will allow our little boutique press to publish his memoir, Stops along the Way which chronicles his experiences from childhood in Europe through the Holocaust and into his life and career in the United States. The book provides such a rich look at JewishContinue reading “An exciting Thursday— a new volume of Fashion & Fiends, a new poem and a new author”

Trapped, released to the world

I hope everyone survived Valentine’s Day. We made our contribution with the humorous contemporary romance, TRAPPED. Art Director Gayle Hendricks had so much fun with this book, which she designed with a stunning cover, a fun pocket size and photo illustrations featuring the residents of Plastiqueville, taken by our own Joan Zachary. From the backContinue reading “Trapped, released to the world”

So close… the Valentine’s line-up

*Two books* have finished the final proof stage and should be heading to the printer/distributor this weekend— Trapped, our first contemporary romance and our first pocket book, and as if that’s not enough excitement about this book… it also has photographs by the amazing Joan Zachary featuring the residents of Plastiqueville AND Recovery, the thirdContinue reading “So close… the Valentine’s line-up”

Highlighting the rawness of motherhood

Here at Parisian Phoenix, we have three books hopefully going to press within the next 60 days. Last night, I finished the (hopefully) final line edit of Recovery, the third volume of the Fashion and Fiends series. In case you missed the first two volumes: Book One is Manipulations, where a 400-year-old fire made stalksContinue reading “Highlighting the rawness of motherhood”

Our first poetry book now in stock— Twists: Gathered Ephemera by Darrell Parry

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. JoanContinue reading “Our first poetry book now in stock— Twists: Gathered Ephemera by Darrell Parry”

charting new waters: photo illustration in contemporary romance

Parisian Phoenix Publishing is going to blaze a different trail in publishing with the pocket contemporary romance Trapped. It’s illustrated! It makes sense, doesn’t it? Parisian Phoenix likes to stray off the beaten path. If you would want ordinary you’d go to a mass marketer, not an indy press. Trapped, the next novel on theContinue reading “charting new waters: photo illustration in contemporary romance”

Hustling and Bustling at Parisian Phoenix Publishing

Periodically during the next week or so, this space will feature updates on various Parisian Phoenix projects. Yesterday, poet Darrell Parry received a proof of his poetry project TWISTS: GATHERED EPHEMERA that, with a little grit, could be in the printer’s hands in a few days. Publisher/editor Angel Ackerman performed the initial placements in theContinue reading “Hustling and Bustling at Parisian Phoenix Publishing”
