PRESS RELEASE: MOCHA MEMOIRS PRESS RELEASES SHORT STORY COLLECTION COLLABORATION WITH ARTIST JULIA LACQUEMENT
November 14, 2019—Rock Hill, South Carolina Mocha Memoirs Press, LLC released a short story collection of Nicole Givens Kurtz’s popular Cybil Lewis private inspector futuristic noir series. This collection of stories contain illustrations from former DC Comics’ illustrator and renowned artist, Julia Lacquement. The title is available in ebook and paperback. A hardcover limited edition will be available later this month.
Early reviews are buzzing with Cybil Lewis’s voice and character as being engaging and one to follow.
Julie Dismukes writes in her 5-Star Amazon review, “I’m nominating Cybil Lewis as a new favorite detective to keep up with. The world of Cybil Lewis is mysterious: there has been some extreme disaster, humanity has had to pull itself together and remake society. Cybil works in a futuristic Washington, DC that is falling apart even as it is being rebuilt. Cybil is a war veteran, as are most of her surviving cohorts…The stories get more interesting as they go along. Each novella is worth buying by itself—this collection of novellas is a wonderful deal. I could not put the book down as soon as I picked it up.”
Here’s the blurb from the collection: Before the Change, before Jane, and before she became a PI badass, Cybil Lewis
cut her teeth in the District as a solo, brand new private inspector. At last,
those stories of her early years are collected into this volume of short
stories and novellas. Offering beautiful illustrations by comic book and
brilliant artist, Julia Lacquement (DC Comics), Collected: A Cybil Lewis SF
Mystery Collection provides action-packed, mystery stories set in the
futuristic territory of D.C. (the District).
Whether this is your first time meeting Cybil or are a long-time fan, this collection should be a part of yours.
You won’t be disappointed.
COLLECTED: A CYBIL LEWIS SF MYSTERY COLLECTION is available at the Mocha Memoirs Press website, Amazon, and other fine online retailers. You can also order the paperback from brick and mortar bookstores.
