The Crimson Cloak Anthologies
It began as a way for authors to introduce people to their work, and was intended to be distributed free. In order to reach catalogues which do not accept free books, it was decided to make a charge on such platforms but donate all profit received to charity. No-one gets paid but the charity! Our lovely contributors were so enthusiastic about the first one that we incorporated the anthologies into a permanent expression of our corporate ethos. Each anthology contains a section about the charity it’s in aid of, what they are trying to do, links to their website etc., so the book acts like an advertising leaflet for that charity. Everyone loves a freebie: if the charity offers the e-book for free they can use it to thank their supporters for their interest, reward donors, tell new people about what they do, and create a buzz that leads to new funding. Everyone wins! Print versions are sold at cost plus $1 for the charity, which is paid to them by us even if they buy their own book to sell on. To raise money for themselves, a charity has only to open their heart and encourage people to buy the book, no request is made by us for actual publicity or branding.

Edo Blood
John Aarons is a college student from Wright University (Dayton, Ohio) and is majoring in Asian Studies, with a minor in Japanese Feudal History. This term, he’s studying the Edo Period and is going on a field trip to Kagoshima, Japan to visit some old monuments and monasteries. While at one of the monasteries, he stumbles upon a very old scroll. When he gets it back to his hotel room and opens it, he’s shocked to find himself reading about a 16th century lord named Mitsui Hamada--a woman! Except there were no female feudal lords in 16th century Japan. At the end of the scroll, he finds a reference to another scroll--the next in what appears to be a series. His decision to find the next one leads him on a journey across Japan, then across The Yellow Sea into China and back to Japan again. Each scroll reveals secrets more incredible than the last--but none more incredible than the fact that there were vampires in 16th century feudal Japan! But, what John Aarons doesn't know is, there are even more incredible secrets still to come . . .

Young Bunker Charles is the Crown Prince of the mysterious planet of OTHERLAND. Follow his adventures with his friend Gittel on this fascinating world. When a meteorite hit planet earth, destroying the continent of Atlantis, Atlantis sank into the Atlantic Ocean as was believed by some. Located just south of Atlantis was a small country called Otherland. When the giant meteorite struck and buried the continent of Atlantis, the force from the explosion propelled the country of Otherland away from earth and into outer space. The mass of earth and water that was Otherland, eventually formed into a gravitational ball and went into its own orbit around Jupiter. Otherland brought with it and maintained its own atmosphere and gravity. When the organisms began to take form, bringing life to Otherland, the interior was compressed into many caverns, tunnels and underground rivers. After centuries of orbiting around Jupiter, a meteorite hit Jupiter and the explosion catapulted Planet Otherland back into outer space. Eventually, Otherland went into orbit again, this time around Planet Earth. Otherland had come back home.
