Happy Holidays


Happy Holidays, readers and writers.

We’ve been busy, as usual, feeling like the tortoise in the race with the rabbit – slow and steady, attempting to bring readers beautiful prose wrapped in lovely covers.

The rabbit does get distracted, and the tortoise does stay focused, however long the race may take.

Today, we bring you, not so much a mammal or a reptile, but a cyclops. Remember the characters of mythology who usually got the bad rap, playing second fiddle in someone else’s story?

May we present to you, I, Polyphemus. The first person narrative of the cyclops. He has a story to tell – and you’re going to want to hear it!

This holiday, read I, Polyphemus. Ron Terranova’s tale of myth and legend.

On our end, Eddy, by Noreen Lace has been featured at the Poe Museum. Eddy is a eddy posterfictional account of an actual event in Poe’s life, and as an expert, she delivered a sensitive and intimate portrayal of Edgar Allan Poe experiencing the results of a Laudanum overdose.





Our Summer Release of Delphinium is a touching compilation of international poets and delphinium summer 2018writers. We are very fortunate to have such a vast array of artists submitting. Keep it up, loves.






Our new release is Chris Pellizzari’s Last Night in Granada! We are excited about this book. I, personally, want to run off to Spain for a little romance!

Two upcoming releases!

We are looking forward to the New Year – yes already! We’re not forgetting about Thanksgiving or Christmas, Hanukah, or any other lovely celebration that is coming up before then – and we might have a surprise or two before the new year as well – but we do have these two lovely little things.eddycoverfinal

Noreen Lace has dropped us into her deep and thoughtful prose once again with her upcoming release of Eddy.

Eddy is a fictional take on Edgar Allan Poe’s actual near suicide in 1848.







Our new author, Valerie Cooper, will be tantalizing readers for some time to come. We’ve contracted with her for two books and one short fiction. The short fiction should be hitting the market around the New Year – quite possibly before.



Valerie’s poetry and fiction has appeared in a number of literary journals.

The Kiss is a fictional story about a meeting another couple on a camping trip and, shall we say, they fall into experimentation. The memory stays with the female narrator long after the experience and  affects the rest of her life.







We have a lot of exciting things happening at REaDLips! We’ve been reading and signing more women writers and making more connections in the world opening our authors and readers to a wide variety of opportunities.

Finally –  the December Issue of Delphinium will be hitting the bookstores before December is finished!








New Release by Barlow Adams

Welcome Barlow Adams and his book Appappalachian alc1alachian Alchemy!

One reader wrote: “Here’s a charming slab of story that just keeps twisting. As it opens, it seems to be a quiet coming of age tale — a slice of life Kentucky fried — and in many ways that remains the case throughout, but a primal violence seeps in there along the way and bloodies the water. Well, it so happens that’s my favorite kind of violence, so I was loving it.”

Check out Appalachian Alchemy in paperback or on Kindle!
