Crossroad Press Acquire first two Beatrice Books!
Prestigious CROSSROAD PRESS (CP) have acquired the first two books in the Beatrice Beecham series. Both titles have been re-edited and are now graced with rather fetching covers, as you can see below! Readers may be aware that Houseful of Horrors is already with CP, so I am honoured they have taken on these two earlier titles.
The books will be re-released very soon!
