Release Day: Owl Stretching

Owl StretchingToday’s the big day: Owl Stretching is out now! Get in on the rollicking tale of ‘Shamans Vs Aliens’ and take a road trip across a slightly futuristic New England all the way to Mount Auburn Cemetery. 🙂

You can buy the book at Immanion, get your local bookstore to order it, or buy it online. An ebook version will be forthcoming. If you can’t afford it, consider suggesting it for your local library.

As always, likes and agreeing with tags will help get the book noticed. Reviews even more so, so if you do read it and like it, I encourage you to leave a review or a rating at Amazon (or wherever you purchased it) as well as Goodreads or any other book rating place.
And let’s all sing our unofficial theme song: “Rotate Your Owl”


Accidental shaman Rothschild (“Ro”) Parker has a lot of problems on her hands. Her best friend Simon just woke up from a ten year coma she may have caused, her spiritual guide is a 300 year old magpie, and the planet’s just been taken over by a group of aliens who hot-rod around eating anyone who stands still long enough to be a meal. Besides, she’s got a dead cat to bury.

In Owl Stretching, Ro has to juggle her guilt for Simon’s lost decade with her desire for spiritual and sexual exploration, a looming alien invasion and the growing suspicion that she’s about to re-enact the Descent of Inanna. Worse yet, her spiritual guide tells her she’s going to have to become a leader of the resistance. What resistance?! If guns and lasers prove useless against these invaders, what good will a steady drum beat do? All Ro really wants is a nice cup of tea. Combining mordant humour with mythic exploration, Owl Stretching shows that the inner worlds are every bit as mysterious—and dangerous—as the far reaches of the cosmos.

UPDATE: Amazon still doesn’t have it available 😦 but you can order it direct from Immanion.

    Intriguing. I heard of this book from the Feminist Fantasy list. I’ll be buying the ebook when it appears.
