My Lute is a Time Capsule book_cover

Lutes are time-capsules: they are braced inside with odd scraps of cloth and printed paper.
The author is building a lute full of daft stories, curious reminiscences and snippets of life in 21st-century Britain.
This is a book of what’s inside and what didn’t quite make it.

Recently published: Voices of the First World War, by Jenny Hill,8 February 2016. Price 9.95.

Voices of WW1 book_cover

This poignant cycle of poems by Jenny Hill, commemorating those who perished in the Great War, 1914-1918, is inspired by a series of podcasts by the Imperial War Museum in connection with the First World War Centenary Partnership, 2014-2018.
There is a poem for each of the podcasts, which totalled 48 at the time of writing, plus a closing poem of grief and reconciliation.
The poems are illustrated by a series of sparse, haunting images from the pen of Ian Clark.

NOTICE:On 6 November 2014,Interspex, by Clark Nida, was republished in revised edition as The Titan Kiss in audiobook format by Earthspot Books, which plans to issue compatible paperback and Kindle editions shortly. (Search for it under its new title in iTunes, Amazon.com or Audible.com.)
This was forced on the author because coincidentally the old title is the name of a reputable biotech supplier, as well as having social connotations which could mislead readers as to its actual genre.
Undead Tree Publications has retired the title from its list, and has not acquired rights to the book under its new title.

Recently published: Satan Garth, by Mike Silkstone,price 9.95.

Satan Garth book_cover

This is the third book of Mike's “Steeas” trilogy.

This is not the holiday he had imagined!

Gary Thornton, just turned 18, forsakes the house of his peevish mother and her wealthy new bloke
for the company of his beloved dad. They're taking a carefree holiday on the North Yorkshire coast,
staying in a cottage at the decrepit fishing village of Seaton Garth...

“Satan Garth”, his dad calls it.

There's definitely something sinister about the place. And the locals aren't at all welcoming.
Whyever did they come here? Dad hasn't told Gary the whole story: nothing like!

Seasons o'Steeas, by Mike Silkstone,received its official launch on Saturday, 16 October, 2010atThe Art Cafe, 42a Flowergate, Whitby.
See the official press release [PDF 143KB].

It is the dawn of the 20th century. A tiny storm-swept fishing village on the tip of the North Yorkshire coast has just been discovered by a group of artists, soon to become famous as the Staithes Group. They are readily accepted as part of the community and Evelyn Dacre, a young local woman, often sits for them.Seasons o'Steeaschronicles three generations of Evelyn’s seafaring family in this isolated inbred community, cursed by tragedy at sea and little room for love on land. Where daily life is steeped in folklore and superstition, touched by the macabre. Where your funeral’s the highlight of your life, and your parents force you to marry your cousin “to keep t’brass in t’family”.
