The Nookienomicon

Red Cape Publishing are excited to bring you the comedy-horror anthology The Nookienomicon on June 10th 2022

“Cor, look at the tentacles on that!”

Two golden ages collide in this celebration of cosmic horror and classic British comedy.

Before the Karma Sutra there was The Nookienomicon, a book so insidious that it brought more than mere titillation… it brought terror!

Follow the path of madness wrought by this dreadful tome from the Hyborian Age to the present day as it spreads its influence, and its tentacles, throughout history. Join Kolon the Barbarian, Annie Mater, the insufferable Professor Feeley and a host of other bungling characters as they strive to halt the influence of the book and the abominations it summons.
From the gambrel roofed streets of Arkham and the decaying wharves of Innsmouth to Paris, Spain and the dusty halls of hallowed British institutions, one thing can be certain, wherever the Nookienomicon is found, it will bring insanity and hilarity.


Eight side-splitting and sanity-shredding tales of the expanded Cthulhu Mythos by:
Ella Ann, David Green, S.O Green, Chris Hewitt, Tim Mendees, Beth W. Patterson,
Callum Pearce & Robert Poyton 

Digital version available to pre-order for Kindle from Amazon at https://getbook.at/nookienomicon and other stores at https://books2read.com/u/3RLPPx

South by Southwest Wales by David Owain Hughes

Coming July 28th

Red Cape Publishing are pleased to announce the release of South by Southwest Wales by David Owain Hughes on July 28th 2021.

Blurb: “Samson Valentine. Once the best gumshoe in the city, but now little more than a washed-up has-been. The question is, though; which city? And when? 

With a touch as deft and as quick as an assassin’s knife, Owain-Hughes presents us with a classic flawed hero. An inherently good man in a world gone bad. This is a fabulous story that weaves its way seamlessly from 1940’s Chicago to modern day Cardiff, thanks to the broken mind of its main character. A man you can trust with your life, but whom you cross at your peril. 

This is one hell of a read. I can’t think of a better evening than to sit in the pool of light from a shaded chintz lamp, sip a single malt, and get lost in South by Southwest Wales. Pure magic.” –Richard Ayre 

Samson Valentine is the best private eye ever to wear a fedora–or at least he was, before he became a washed-up booze hound. There simply isn’t a demand for a whiskey-swilling Welsh gumshoe who insists he’s living in 1940s Chicago, but everything changes when a huge diamond falls into his lap. Before he’s knows what’s going on, Samson find himself swept up in the biggest case of his life. The mob will do anything to get its gemstone back, and they prove it when Sam’s friend turns up dead. Now it’s personal, and Sam sets out on a one-man mission to take down the Welsh crime syndicate. Armed with little more than his wits and his fists, the odds don’t look good. Too much time at the bottom of a whiskey bottle has given him trembling hands and an addled brain. If he’s to have any chance of bringing the mob to justice, he’ll first need to come to grips with his worst enemy–himself.

A Reasonably Viable Marriage By Skip (Frank) Yetter

*OUT NOW ON AMAZON*

A Reasonably Viable Marriage reflects on human capacity to endure

cover-nowhite

EASTBOURNE – Local author Skip (Frank) Yetter has released his second novel, A Reasonably Viable Marriage, now available on Amazon.co.uk.
Inspired by Yetter’s friendship with Nguyen Thua Nghiep, an elderly Vietnamese man, the book is a fictional story based on Nghiep’s teachings and ideas about love and marriage. The story is about love, loss, redemption and the values that commit humans to one another. It is told from the perspective of an 83-year-old man as he struggles to remain close to his wife, who is in a care home suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
“I met Nghiep in a park in central Saigon in 2011,” Yetter said. “We quickly became fast friends, with many ideas and values in common, and we spoke and wrote extensively about our thoughts over the years. The idea for my novel came from his books’reflections on human values.”
Yetter and his wife, Gabrielle, frequently visited Nghiep and his family in Saigon on their trips to Vietnam while the couple were living in Cambodia.
“He was one of the most positive people I’ve known,” Yetter said about Nghiep, who died in 2016, “and his writing reflected his deep appreciation for the values in support of a structurally sound, healthy marriage, and in maintaining strong interpersonal relationships.”
The story follows Ben and Brenda Tremblay through their life growing up in a small Midwestern city in the US where Brenda’s father serves as mayor. Her father viewed Ben as an unworthy suitor for his daughter, and he proved an imposing obstacle to their budding love and eventual marriage. Confronted with his daughter’s unwavering commitment to her young suitor, the mayor relented, terming their imminent nuptials “a reasonably viable marriage.”
Ben and Brenda marry and begin a life together and they struggle to find their way through challenges and unthinkable loss. Yet the biggest challenge of their marriage occurs when Brenda is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
“A Reasonably Viable Marriage is about the human capacity for survival,” Yetter said. “It’s a story of hope against all odds, and the ability of the human spirit to survive.”
A Reasonably Viable Marriage is Yetter’s fourth book. His first novel, Rilertown, a murder mystery featuring investigative reporter and protagonist Jake Ketcher, was released in 2016. Just Go! Leave the Treadmill for a World of Adventure, co-written with his wife, Gabrielle, was released in 2015, as was KISS Kooking, his cookbook of family recipes and recipes he learned in a decade of world travel.
Yetter and his wife live in Eastbourne.

Starstruck By Casey Smith and Bridget Spackman

Starstruck

Casey and Bridget met, and became fast friends, on a college team-building trip at sixteen, when they were both too afraid to climb the rock wall. The two started their writing journey not long after, writing fan-fiction together, until they found their own characters and their own voice.
Over the years they found inspiration for their debut novel in all their common interests, mainly their similar taste in music and their love of frequenting gigs together, but also in their fondness for American TV shows, Disney and anything Superhero related. Specifically, Batman and Spiderman.
These days they try to enjoy these things as much as they can, Casey around raising her two small children and Bridget around planning her wedding and being a new parent. So… not at all.
Starstruck is their debut novel, which has been in the works for the majority of their friendship. Set in Boston, Massachusetts, it’s about a group of friends who have grown up together, with the shared secret of some of them having supernatural powers, inherited from their Fathers.

Everyone has their secrets.
Some are just bigger than others…
Jonathan Taylor is the name on everyone’s lips. Usually for the wrong reasons. With magical powers and a rock band he’s determined will make it big, he’s never far from the spotlight. He just never factored in falling for his sister’s best friend.
Brooke is harbouring her own crush, all the while fighting back a bitter high school rivalry and an overprotective Italian family.
For Rosie, she knows her biggest secret could prove deadly. But as boys and heartache cause her to sink deeper, it’s only a matter of time until she’s found out.
And Will knows all about secrets. His own powers have a darkness to them that few have glimpsed. If they knew, no one would look at him the same way again…
For most teenagers, high school is about survival.
For these teenagers – every day is.
