The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Roseanne Montillo’s The Lady and Her Monsters, pitched as in the tradition of The Professor and the Madman, about the creation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, combining literary history with the story of the real life occultists and mad scientists who inspired Shelley to write her Gothic masterpiece.

The Pit:

Ursula James’ The Source, part fable, part spell-book, an inspirational work that contains prophecies of relationships, love, forgiveness, and healing from Mother Shipton, a 16th century Yorkshire prophetess and healer, as channeled by the author.
