#thestormiscoming, it’s just not here… yet.
We’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. The bad news is that Stormdancer by Joshua Pantalleresco, the sequel to his epic poem The Watcher, is facing some delays which means that the release date will be pushed back to October 1st, 2015.
The good news is multi-faceted. First, because of the delay, the artist from The Watcher, Florence Chan is going to have the time to make the artwork really shine in Stormdancer. There will also be quite a few more images in Stormdancer than there was in The Watcher, featuring more characters than the first book did. Secondly, Joshua Pantalleresco is planning a trip down to the Windsor area to launch his new book. So, slightly in advance of the October 1st release date, Windsor locals will be able to meet Joshua Pantalleresco and pick up a signed copy of The Watcher and Stormdancer at The 2015 Local Authors and Artists Festival happening at the WFCU Centre on September 26th!

The rest of the good news is that in order to keep the ‘Summer of New Releases’ going without pause, we’ve decided to move up the launch date of The Coffee Monster by Nate Friedman. Nate Friedman’s children’s book will now by launching on July 1st in print and as a PDF ebook for mobile devices.
