After two years of selling our wonderful books on our own site, we’ve decided to shut our store down at the end of the day this Sunday, October 2. While it’s been great to be able to sell our books independently, at this point it is simply no longer cost-efficient. The books will still be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, but this is your last chance to buy from us—and we would love it if you did!

We’ve put all our ebooks on sale for the occasion. These are the cheapest prices you’ll see anywhere, so if you’ve ever thought about giving any of these books a spin (or are just seeing them for the first time!), now would be a good time to do it. They are also available in paperback at full price. They are:

A Hero at the End of the World, Erin Claiborne (@eleveninches), $7.99 (reg. $9.99)

Seventeen-year-old Ewan Mao knows one thing for certain: according to prophecy, it’s his destiny to kill the evil tyrant whose dark reign has terrorized Britain for as long as he can remember. Although he’s just a normal boy, deep down Ewan is confident that he has exactly what it takes to be a hero. But when Ewan’s big moment comes and his best friend, the clever and talented Oliver Abrams, defeats the villain for him, Ewan’s bright future crumbles before his eyes.

Five years later, while Ewan is living at home and working a minimum-wage job, Oliver has a job as an Unusual in the government’s Serious Magical Crimes Agency, the life he and Ewan always dreamed of. A routine investigation leads him and his partner, Sophie Stuart, to uncover a dangerous and powerful cult… one that seems to have drawn his former best friend into a plot to end the world.

Juniper Lane, Kady Morrison (@gyzym), $7.99 (reg. $9.99)

After a breakup she’d rather not talk—or think—about ever again, Mim Robinson has nowhere to go: distanced from her friends, estranged from most of her family, she finds herself against all odds on Juniper Lane, surrounded by an eccentric aunt and her wealthy, uptight neighbors.

Among the catty gossip and quiet rhythms of the suburbs, Mim finds herself striking up a strange, unexpected friendship with the intimidating Nadia Bahjat, the only other twenty-something on the street. Nadia, a professional chef and perennial disappointment to her parents, had to leave a promising career in the city to return home when her father grew sick—but she’ll soon realize that her parents may not be as perfect as she’d always imagined.

Savage Creatures, Natalie Wilkinson (@febricant), $5.99 (reg. $7.99)

Francis Harding has always been good for one thing: doing what his family tells him. So when his mother asks him to travel across the Atlantic to hunt down his missing sister Catherine, he goes without hesitation–only to find himself an unwelcome shapeshifter in a strange city, looking for a woman who may not want to be found.

Without any alternative, he finds himself turning to London’s supernatural underworld for help, recruiting a slippery but compelling investigator named Jamie. Her particular brand of magic makes Francis’s skin crawl, but it might just help him track down his sister.

Thanks to all for all your support, and happy reading.
