New Book Release: The Great Escape: 15 Tales of Humor, Myth & Magic by Tammie Painter




Peculiar pet shops.
Troublesome dream homes.
And robot vacuums that just want to be free.

Looking for a captivating (and quick) escape from reality? These fifteen tales of myth, magic, and whimsy provide just that.

Amongst the award-winning words are stories of vacations gone enchantingly wrong, questionable business practices, worrying parental habits, misbehaving reptiles, and Norse gods in a bit of a bind.

This is the second short story collection by Tammie Painter – author of the humor-filled Cassie Black Trilogy and The Circus of Unusual Creatures Mysteries. It begins with a brief introduction telling how these stories led to the creation of those fan favorite series. The author then opens each tale with a few words to share the twists and turns of inspiration.

The fifteen stories range from dark (but not too dark) fantasy to beguiling magical realism to laugh-out-loud silliness.

Some stories have a little violence (nothing gruesome) and mild cursing, but no “on-screen” hanky panky (a giant does have some off-screen fun, but I’ll leave you to discover that one).
