—Charles McNair, author of Pickett's Charge and Land O'Goshen
Last week Kaye Park Hinkcley, author of our July release Birds of a Feather, launched her book at Andalusia Farm, home of Flannery O'Connor (perhaps you've heard of her). Like O'Connor, Hinckley is a Southerner, and, like O'Connor, she's hails from that particular religious persuasion which Mr. James Joyce so ingeniously rejected. Hinckley goes a long way toward continuing the distinct vein of fiction which Miss Flannery unleashed upon the world.
Birds of a Feather, a collection of short stories which will sell for $12.00 starting on its official release date of July 14, is now available for pre-order HERE for only $10.00. In the same spirit, we're (momentarily) letting go of Kindle editions of Geoffrey Smagacz's A Waste of Shame and Other Sad Tales of the Appalachian Foothills for only $3.00 a piece HERE.
Hinckley translates grace in a world on edge, sees a double beginning and ending in everything, literally everything, including the unspeakably awful. The stories in Birds of a Feather—several of which have won substantive awards—take us to the heart of the matter. We encourage you, then, to partake of this (to use the words of Cassandra King) “masterful, skillful writing,” while the gettin's good.
With warmest regards and thanks,
