The First of our Summer Releases

The REaDLips family welcomes Nicolette Elzie with her book of poetry BabyDoll

Babydoll is a beauty queen with a dark secret hiding behind her designer shades. She’s lost the will to live. Scared of her own thoughts, Babydoll embarks on a journey of self-discovery. But depression and suicide ideation will stop at nothing until they destroy her. Her very life is on the line and Babydoll will have to claw her way out of the darkness if she wants to live.

Inspired by Terrance Hayes’ Hip Logic with tributes to the legendary Sylvia Plath and Coco Chanel, this deeply tender confessional volume of poetry explores themes of mental health, tragic romance, glamour, and melancholia.

We have every confidence, you’ll love BabyDoll.

Tour with us in the country of love

“Moving and often heart-wrenching tales drawn from the depths of human experience.” Kirkus Review

From award winning author Jo Rousseau comes her second book of short fiction. In these beautifully crafted stories, the author creates sensitive and realistic characters who have no passport, no roadmap to the country of love. In “Reading to My Mother,” a family deals with keeping their aging mother at home, questioning whether they can trust their youngest sibling who reappears after years of absence. Is the love of family strong enough to navigate these unfamiliar roads? “Johnsonville” gives us Kathy, a second time bride, on her way to a future husband who will spend his life in prison. Rousseau, in these stories tells us the truth about love…that we are all tourists in the country of love.

Two New For You

We are happy to Welcome Leah Holbrook Sackett to our publishing family with Swimming Middle River, a book about challenging family and society.

And a new release from one of our favorite writer, Ron Terranova surprises and delights with the October release of October Twilight – a dark, ironic, gothic book of short fiction.

Happy Reading!
