Middle Child Press Site Relaunch

It is with great pleasure that we announce the long-awaited relaunch of our website, now hosted at www.middlechildpress.us.  To celebrate, we're having a Summer Blowout Sale starting July 7, 2015.

Free for Five

In addition to the poetry volume Violet Dusk, anyone who hasn't begun the adventure with Selo & Inya can download the first book, Lady of the Court, free from 7/7/15 to 7/11/15.

We're also excited to announce that Amaya Radjani will be debuting her Nightingales series with CRASH!!! at a reduced price.

And Blasian favorites Corruption and Folklore, and Other stories are back at reduced price as well (see Lixian Ng's recent review of Folklore).

All books are available on Amazon, each one linked from the very first page of our new site.


Change is a-comin' to Middle Child Press

So we at the Press have decided to overhaul our blogs and upgrade certain ones to websites.  We recently did this with The Blasian Narrative and we must say...the reception to www.blasiannarrative.us has been most promising.

So in a few days, all things MCP - merchandise, books, important links - will all be in once place for easy access.

We thank everyone whose supported our books, our fanfictions, and given donations; it's been a long five years and we're grateful to everyone who's been there for us.  We hope to accomplish much greater things in the next five years.


Winter of Blasian Love Sale

Middle Child Press is putting its top two Blasian works on sale at a reduced price of $3.99 for the entire winter...starting now.

Amaya Radjani's Corruption (2011) is the currently MCP's best-selling work of all time, having garnered numerous reviews and fairly consistent sales.
...this is a book you WANT and NEED to read. It's an interracial romance that spends absolutely NO time on race issues and more time on the vagaries of modern-day relationships. It's about friends, family, culture and finding love and strength in the most unexpected ways.

Honestly, Corruption packs more heat than Dirty Harry's .357 hand cannon and a lot more heart than any Hallmark Channel movie, all within a slim 164 pages. A warning: this isn't an HEA so if you're the type who likes their romances all warm and fuzzy wrapped in a big pink bow, then this book is not for you. For the rest of us, Corruption is a wild, sexy, emotional and unexpected ride. It's risky and totally untraditional, and well, the kind of romance that's right up my alley.

Folklore, and Other Stories (2008, 2012) remains Ankhesen Mié's most popular book of all time since its initial release in 2008.

A collection of three stories, Folklore is Mié's first foray into MCP's trademark experimental fiction and gained notable acclaim from the Midwest Book Review, RAWSISTAZ Literary, and APOOO Bookclub while still in the abridged, paperback format.
Folklore, and Other Stories by Ankhesen Mié is the author's sophomore effort and the short stories show how her writing has grown. Ms. Mié has taken on the ambitious task of writing from an Asian perspective. Many of the stories read like old-fashioned tall tales with the flow of poetry in short story form. The stories in this collection offer a new look at age old situations such as marital relationships. The stories are at once true to life, yet mystical and filled with fantasy. The story entitled, `The Collection' is particularly interesting with twists on love and divorce.

I recommend this volume of short stories to readers willing to read something different. In this day and age when many feel there is nothing new under the sun, along comes a writer like Ms. Mié proving that is not necessarily so.

The books go on sale November 3rd, 2014.



Zodiac: Solstice (Summer)

"Cayo looked around at the elegant, comfortable room.  While he loved his employers and his job, he couldn't help but feel that there was something slightly odd about their home.  He and Chef were the only two people welcome in the Zhous' Suva residence, and he got that same vibe every time he was in it.

He decided to ask his companion about it.  Chef and Macallan Zhou served together in the Marines.  If anyone knew the answer to that question, he would.  "Chef, have you ever noticed that there aren't any pictures of anyone except Mr. & Mrs. Zhou?""

Stevie coughed and took a long drink of the claret. “I like men like you.”

Capricorn stared at him, smiling slowly as he passed the blunt back without taking another hit.  “I figured you did.  Relax. Enjoy that.”

Zodiac: Ayanamsa (II)

She handed him the wine.  “I didn’t ignore you, Mr. Devinci.  Unfortunately, I won’t be kissing you.  The only lips that touch mine are Macallan’s.”


“Mr. Zhou.  Don’t be obtuse.”
