New Trilogy from Evelyn Benvie!
Yes, a new trilogy will be coming from MCB in the near future.
Evelyn Benvie, who wrote the fabulous Something to Celebrate, submitted a new trilogy to MCB called Not Your Chosen. We are happy to say the books are amazing and we signed them.
These super novels are some of our favorite kind: Fantasy, Humor and Adventure. They are hefty--meaning great plot, wonderful queer characters, and long. Like really long. Over 100,000 words long. (We are in heaven.)
We cannot wait to get them out to you, but we also want to make sure they have the chance to shine with wonderful covers. Watch the MCB website for more news!
New Faces, Same Story
Some of you might of noticed that a familiar sounding story might be looking different than you're used to. That would be correct!
Because of some re-releases, because new stories are being added to a series/universe, or because we felt the file itself could use a refresh with better formatting, some stories from MCB have gotten facelifts—AKA new covers.
We hope you like their new look! Here are a few that have gotten a fresh face.
Customer Accounts are now available for our readers. This is exciting for us (and hopefully you) as it's been a long time coming.
You will be able to see what purchases you've made now.
Now if we could get pre-orders, we'll be set! Have a great rest of the week.
We want to give a healthy shout out to our wonderful Angel Martinez! She is an EPIC award finalist for her book, Uncommonly Tidy Poltergeists, in the Fantasy/Paranormal Romance category.
We are thrilled that her book featuring an ACE protagonist is getting recognition in such a competitive field.
Good luck, Angel!
Mischief Corner Updates!
There is lots to cover and so little time!
1. Uncommonly Tidy Poltergeists will be coming out in audio! Look for it late October/Early November.
2. The Re.new.al anthology is coming along. We're just waiting on a couple illustrations to complete it then we can start making all the different formats and print. <3
3. Toni is ankle deep with Archie's Accidental Kidnapping edits for her expanded second edition. Then she has edits for As Fire Rains Down then Pyro finally gets his turn.
A note on the updated Archie's Accidental Kidnapping - it's changed, quite a bit. The one thing hasn't changed is Archie and Adze, those are still our main guys. Everything else? New world. When Toni decided to dust of the series she felt it needed fleshing out and resulted in the story going from 15K to about 50K. That's massive! The other thing is she's renamed the series since other people are now using her old one. It'll the Hounds of the Hunt now.
4. Freddy has a holiday story for us this December, as well as a few others in the pipeline. Content edits are happening for other stories, not to mention writing is happening for more stories, they just needs more hours in the day.
5. Message from the Home Office and The Nut Job by Angel and Freddy respectively, from the IMP Universe will be undergoing edits and being released by MCB.
6. Marionettes in the Mist illustrations are happening for the first volume, and expansions and edits are underway. Mila is doing a wonderful job with the pages. Here is a sneak peak of part of one of the images. <3
7. Our house lines have rolling submissions. If you think you have a story for us, we're always happy to get new submissions!
8. Holiday stories - MCB will be putting out a call for short (less than 15k) holiday stories. Each story will be offered a one time pay amount, will get their own covers, edits, etc., as well as a cover for a bundle packet of the stories.
It'll be a small submissions window, but if you have a story, submit! We want to get as much cheer out there for the upcoming holidays.
