Brand new title at P’kaboo: WISP - by Elizabeth Mostyn


WISP - by Elizabeth Mostyn

WISP – a novel by Elizabeth Mostyn

The story of a half-retired, half-focused nutty professor, who has hallucinations and dreams, but stumbles across something that is too real to be either –

Ben’s trouble is that because of his general brain fog, people don’t quite take him seriously. However, with patience he manages to convince a few good friends to help him solve that mystery, and the much younger, sharper people begin to realize that they are up against what might be a horrific crime.

Brilliantly conceptualized, Mostyn puts the story together puzzle piece by puzzle piece. The most intriguing is the puzzle of Ben himself – what exactly happened to his Wisp?

Available now at P’kaboo Publishers.

A lovely review for Andrea Kaczmarek's "Do You Know The Rainbow Witch?"

 A lovely review for Andrea's "Rainbow Witch"


No sooner was this book released, and reviews are beginning to come in.  Here is a lovely one on Amazon:

Reviewed in the United States on November 4, 2021 

 More often than not children relate themselves with the characters of a good story. In such circumstances, reading fiction can help them to get inspiration from the characters. These stories often portray real life implications through anecdotes, and as such makes it easier for them to understand the complex aspects of life. Moreover, reading these stories at regular intervals can actually help them to develop a positive outlook towards life, which eventually proves beneficial for good character development.

The Rainbow Witch by Andrea Kaczmarek is a humorous fairytale suitable for...  [read more at THIS link]

The Passing of a Legend

Author of "Tabika", "Regina", "Baa Baa Black Belt"; "Darx Circle" and the not-yet-released "Immy" series, and our loyal and excellent editor Leslie Hyla Winton Noble, passed away after a long and valiant battle against cancer, on 13 March this year.

He leaves a legacy for his readers; but also, as an integral part of P'kaboo Publishers, we feel his absence acutely. 

May he rest in peace.  Goodbye my loyal friend, until we meet again beyond the Gate.

Updates and Errata

For everyone who subscribed and got a weird, sentimental post - it was meant for a different blog.  Apologies, followers!

P'kaboo in 2019:

Welcome to this year.

We have a number of exciting novels and children's books in the burner right now.  Some are nearly ready and some are being edited. Here is a sneak peek:

1.  The Robin and the Wish (Shaun Harbour)

Small Girl lives alone in the Old Forest.  That is, until Robin appears and enriches her life, with song by day and light by night.

But then something dark starts to disturb their peaceful life.  Something that wants Small Girl - and doesn't want to share.

A lingering story with rare emotional depth.

2.  The Immy Series (Leslie Hyla Winton Noble)

Peeps are already familiar with Immy - launched in 2012 in South Africa, then retracted for editing in 2014.

Immy and the Dragon:  Immy is a brave little girl who encounters a dragon in the forest.  The series follows their adventures together.

3.  The Grumpy Princess  (Andrea Kaczmarek)

(No image available yet)

This delightful story comes from Andrea Katzmarek, our author of "Pink Wish Ice Cream".  What happened to the princess who, unlike Aurora, was not condemned by the evil fairy to 100 years of sleep?

4.  The Brothers Thanatos (Joshua Gamon)

This riveting fantasy novel (not for children!) is a page turner like few.  Max Thanatos, a mage of the finest order, will go to extraordinary lengths to save his brother Charlie's soul from the Devil.

5.  Wisp (Constance Tonge)

P'kaboo is pretty proud to have signed on the descendant of Bram Stoker himself.  "Wisp" is a story set in a half-light between reality and imaginings; politics and a haunted past. It takes a while to unravel what comes down to, essentially, a fiendish crime against humanity.

There are more books in the developmental process too; and we're hoping that this year, finally, we will be able to bring you the long-awaited sequel by Marie Marshall to "From My Cold Undead Hand"; which is "Kwireboy vs Vampyre".

We are also on the look-out for reviews for the recently published books, "Darx Circle" (by Leslie Noble), and "The Blue Between" (by Annemarie Luck).
