Apocalypse Ink Productions is pleased to announce they will be publishing the Sheynan trilogy—an urban fantasy series about a secret war between factions of shapeshifters—by Dylan Birtolo. This trilogy includes re-mastered editions of the series first two books: The Shadow Chaser and The Bringer of War. After the third book is written, AIP will offer an omnibus of all three books.
The already funded kickstarter ends on Saturday, September 7th. Since the kickstarter is fully funded and has met several of its stretch goals, AIP will be giving ebook copies of two AIP published books: Famished: The Farm by Ivan Ewert and Caller Unknown by Jennifer Brozek to every kickstarter backer. With 4 days left in the kickstarter, there are a couple of stretch goals to go--including an entertaining video of Dylan flipping over a horse in full armor. All we can say at AIP is “Ow.”
Learn more about Dylan Birtolo and his writing at his website www.dylanbirtolo.com. We hope you join us for the new series.

Jay Lake's Process of Writing has been shifted out to September 15th due to dealing with Jay's schedule and final proofs. However, the book looks good!
Mena, the AIP kitty, has gone back into ear surgery on her other ear. We've already made arrangements to pay for this ear surgery but, the MENA code will still give you 30% off your order.
Finally, don't forget about the Goodreads Giveaway of Children of Anu, Book 2 of the Karen Wilson Chronicles.
