Anastasia and the Ghostly Owl (The Choice Was Hers!)

Anastasia and the Ghostly OwlIt's because Anastasia and The Ghostly Owl (The Choice Was Hers!) is metaphorical that it caught the attention of everyone! Each time you read it, a new message presents itself.

Metaphors paint a thousand pictures that are unique to each person that reads it!

Promontory Press

Promontory PressPromontory Press is a traditional book publisher that doesn't like the way the traditional book industry has gone when it comes to being accessible to new authors. We have developed a new way of traditional publishing. Call it “hybrid” publishing. With this method we still only publish top-quality, professionally reviewed works; we still maintain an active book-selling staff who have direct access to book buyers across North America; and we still have a crack marketing team that actively supports every one of our titles. By adding this hybrid method to our traditional publishing, we've found a way to let us take more chances on great books.
