Small Press Publisher Celebrates Release of Paranormal Mystery, Collection of Local Ghost Stories with “Day of the Dead” Promotion

Corydon, IN: Just one month after launching their small press publishing company, Per Bastet Publications has released two new titles. To celebrate, they’re holding a “Day of the Dead” book giveaway at the end of October.

The first October release, Ghostly Hauntings of Interstate 65 by Joanna Foreman, was originally published as Ghosts of Interstate 65 in 2008. This new edition features a new cover and an additional story, making it a collection of 13 haunting tales based on fact and folklore from the local area.

The second release is a new novel from Marian Allen, A Dead Guy at the Summerhouse. Allen has been featured in Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Sword and Sorceress and her previous works include the epic fantasy trilogy, Sage. A Dead Guy at the Summerhouse is a paranormal young adult mystery set in 1968 in the fictional town of Faelin, Indiana. While the threat of being drafted for Vietnam looms, a young man takes a job for a wealthy eccentric which might turn just as deadly.

To promote the launch of these two books, Per Bastet Publications will hold a giveaway October 27 through November 1, 2014. Winners of the “Day of the Dead Giveaway” will receive free eBook or paperback editions of Per Bastet books with “dead” (or undead) protagonists. Paperbacks will be available only to winners in the continental United States.

In addition to Ghostly Hauntings of Interstate 65 and A Dead Guy at the Summerhouse, the local small press publisher will give away copies of Sara Marian’s The Life and Death (but Mostly the Death) of Erica Flynn and Chicago Blues, book 1 of the Miller & Peale series by T. Lee Harris.

The contest will be conducted online via their Facebook page ( and Twitter account (, as well as their website (
