Enter the Dragon
We cannot resist the chance to reference Bruce Lee. We are just that kind of press. And with the year of the dragon newly upon us, a certain movie starring a certain kung-fu hero has been oft on our minds. And it’s no doubt on your mind too after reading the triggering title of this post. Go, watch it now. No one can resist the magnetic pull of Bruce Lee. We’ll wait.
Are you back? Oh good. Now that you have had your fill of battles in dazzlingly mirrored rooms, you’re ready to think about books again, of this we are certain. And how fortuitous that you are here with us! Because we are makers of books. And readers of books. And dreamers of books. We have been reading a lot of interesting things over the holiday season, trying to keep it warm and cozy and holiday-feeling, despite the unseasonably warm winter we have seen at our Toronto headquarters. (We’re not complaining in the slightest! We love a relatively painless passage through the darkest time of the year, although warm weather and lack of snow does make it hard to feel all tucked in to our book cave, whiling the dark days away with great works.)
(Yes, we have a book cave at Workhorsery HQ. Make of that what you will. )
Apparently, many of you got Kindles for the present-giving seasonal holiday that you celebrate. How do you like them? We certainly hope that those little devices were already jammed with great literature when you got your hands on them. We would be somehow disappointed at receiving an empty reading device. Almost like getting a beautifully bound pile of blank pages. (Of course, we know that it is much, much easier to fill a Kindle than to fill a pile of blank pages, but still, the feeling lingers.) If you are interested in filling that electronic memory even further, you might be relieved to know that both of our initial releases are available on Amazon (or on Smashwords if you are trying to free yourself from the clutches of the whispernet).
And if you can wait until spring, we will have something exceptional and new for you! We’re still fussing around with the various details (because we are nothing if not fussy and thorough when it comes to the books we offer up to you), but we can tell you right now we are so excited! We are working with an amazing author to bring you an amazing (and incredibly funny) book! This is the thing that we love best in this world. Well, maybe second best. The thing we love best is actually getting an amazing (and incredibly funny) book into your hands. Soon, patient reader, soon.
