Fall 2022 Upcoming Releases

It’s been quite a while since Ink Smith Publishing has released more than two books a year. Due to COVID and other interruptions Ink Smith has been slowly getting back into the groove. Fall 2022 is starting to take shape and we are pleased to announce the upcoming publications of three of our current authors’ work. First up, is the relaunching of Polar Night and Polar Day by Julie Flanders. These relaunched, and beautifully designed covers are in preparation for the third book, Polar Curse, in the re-branded Polar Magic series.

Polar Curse by Julie Flanders

Julie Flanders, the author of The Ghosts of Aquinnah, Polar Night, and Polar Day, is releasing the next book in the Polar Magic series: Polar Curse. It started in Fairbanks, and it will end in Fairbanks. Detective Danny Fitzpatrick has dueled with vampires and witches, but something is haunting Fairbanks—and it isn’t just the recent disappearance of a hiker. Eerie voices, accidental deaths and arson keep dragging Danny back to Kennecott cemetery. Back to Annabelle Trescot’s grave. The only theory that makes any sense: a deadly ghost.

With bodies piling up, Danny is forced to seek out Aleksei Nechayev, the murderous vampire, for help. But history has a way of coming back to haunt us, even when the ghosts get what they want. 

The Rise of the Azure Spire by J. Edward Hackett

J. Edward Hackett, author of the epic-fantasy novel, The Flight of the Ravenhawk, is back with the sequel to Prince Kals’ adventure. With King Darnashi under the control of necromancy wielded by Prime Magus Encheron, the Wizardlord’s must pledge their allegiance or face the costs of treason.

The Elves of Venda have thrown their support behind Prince Kal, but Kal might be more Allurian than they bargained for. When Kal’s dreams connect to the tortured soul of his brother, King Darnashi—the war takes a much deadlier turn. An army of the dead has risen and Encheron wields their commander. 

While Venda and Alluria fight their war, Encheron is making deals with the Shadowland to ensure his own claim over Alluria, but when he promises the Heart of Creation in exchange for his power, he may have doomed them all.

The Witch and the Devourer of Souls by C. David Belt

C. David Belt, author of The Witch of White Lady Hollow, has rocketed us into the future with The Witch and the Devourer of Souls. We find ourselves following an adult, Tabitha Moonshadow, navigating another evil force, in the sequel.

A masked serial killer feeds off the terror of women, devouring their souls… and he’s set his sights on Tabitha.

Tabitha Moonshadow Kilmore is now a young wife and a new mother, as well as a starving university student. And only her husband, her beloved Josh, knows that she’s a witch. And only Tabitha knows that Josh is a warlock—her warlock. They can do nothing apart, but together, they are magnificent.

It’s 1982, and a masked serial killer stalks the streets of tranquil Provo, Utah, abducting and terrorizing women, consuming their fear, and devouring their souls. And the killer has targeted the ultimate prize–the witch, Tabitha.

Reluctantly, Tabitha uses her abilities to aid Provo Police Detective Daniel Folau, a man scarred without and within, to identify and stop the murderer. But can Tabitha and Josh trust Folau? Can they trust any man? After all, any male could be the Devourer of Souls.
