Hello, hello, hello! It has been a little too long since our last update or even a post here on the site for Saturn Returns Publishing. For that, the Bookats and I apologize. We’ve been plugging away on several projects of late. Including the final edits for Philipp J. Kessler’s third book in the Dark of the Moon, New Beginnings series. Landslide is due out in Kindle format on August 21st.
We were not intending for Landslide to come out on such an auspicious day. August 21st is not only the August new moon, it is the solar eclipse! SRP and Mr. Kessler are located on the path of totality for that celestial event. What a way to launch his longest novel to date! Continue reading →
SRP author, Philipp J. Kessler, released his first full length novel and book two in the Dark of the Moon, New Beginnings series. Waterfall hit Kindle and paperback on Amazon Monday, May 1, 2017. Waterfall is the sequel to Backfire. Along with Philipp, SRP hosted a release party and author takeover on Facebook. Eight authors took place in the party. We are so happy to have been able to work with authors like Alan VanMeter, Diane Morrison, and Hal Greenberg to celebrate the release of this novel.
Leading up to the release of Waterfall, Philipp attended a local sci-fi/fantasy convention, Constellation8, to schmooze with authors and artists as well as cast line to hook new readers. Though he did not have a booth of his own, he was able to make a few sales while at the con and donated a copy of his book to a silent auction later in the weekend hosted by a local Pagan church. Something he was only too happy to do!
While at the convention, he got to meet the local artist who created the cover art for his chapter-a-month sci-fi project, R.S. Pinnacle: Asteroid. The artist, Chris Ralston, was in the dealer room with many pieces of his art, as well as doing on-the-spot commission. Chris’s art can be found online at R10Creations. You can read Asteroid‘s first chapter for free at Philipp’s Patreon page and become a Patron for only $1 a month to get access to the rest of the project as it becomes available.
Philipp also ran into fellow Nebraska authors Sarah Buhrman, Lisa Kovanda, and Arden Ellen Nixon. Arden is also an artist. Constellation is a great local event that Philipp is looking forward to having a table at next year.
The Bookats reminded me this morning that almost the entire month of April got away from us! Oh, my! We can’t let that happen! We’ve been busy working through several manuscript submissions from new authors. Well, new to us. We have just not been paying that much attention to the blog. For that, we sincerely apologize. This is where so many of you come to find out what is going here at Saturn Returns Publishing. Continue reading →
Today is the day! Dark of the Moon, New Beginnings Vol 1: Backfire goes live on Kindle! Saturn Returns Publishing and author Philipp J. Kessler are very excited about this release. It is Philipp’s first novella and the beginning of a several volume series of shorts and novellas to be released about once a month for the foreseeable future.
The Kindle edition has been available for pre-order for about a week now. It is also available in paperback through Amazon and will be available soon through CreateSpace and other online retailers. Signed paperbacks can be purchased through the author or by backing him on Patreon.
To celebrate the release of Backfire, Philipp is hosting a seven hour author takeover and release party on Facebook. He’s got a wonderful line up authors from several genres to entertain and delight the readers and fans who drop in for a little bit of fun. With an April Fools theme it should prove to be a lot of fun!
