Thinking Ink Press is proud to announce we will publish Thirty Days Later in time for Clockwork Alchemy this Memorial Day. Edited by AJ Sikes, BJ Sikes, and Dover Whitecliff, Thirty Days Later is the sequel to the steampunk anthology Twelve Hours Later: 24 Tales of Myth and Mystery, a charity anthology to promote California literacy programs, and Thinking Ink Press is proud to donate half the royalties of Thirty Days Later to promote literacy.

“The creators of Twelve Hours Later continue to promote literacy one sensational story at a time by donating a portion of their proceeds to literary charities, but no boring works with fluffy kittens here. Not a one! Where else can you find spycraft and sea serpents, cloud cities and ghosts, romance, witty banter, and worlds of wonder in one place? These are stories to relish and read under the covers into the wee hours of the morning. They’ve done it again-Full marks!”

Wild Hair, an Instant Book by Ruth Littmann Ashkenazi

Wild_Hair_cover_imageThinking Ink Press brings you a touch of magical realism just in time for Halloween. We are happy to announce a new Instant Book, Wild Hair, by the always-entertaining Ruth Littmann Ashkenazi. Instant books are limited edition miniature books with complete stories inside. Folded from a single sheet of paper, they fit in the palm of your hand, but they’re sturdy enough to read and share.

Ruth will be reading a new short story at Flash Fiction Forum on October 14 and Wild Hair will be available for sale at this event. The story in Wild Hair was featured at a previous Flash Fiction Forum event.

Keiko O’Leary, our Instant Book designer, created this book layout. She selected the typography and paper, created the art, and hand-folded each book.
