For Immediate Release

An Equal Opportunity Employer

The Hickory Cottage Book Exchange has begun revising their policy in the hiring of Ogres Boris and
Lon. Since the two Ogres started working at the Ponchatoula used bookstore, three children and ten

cats have been reported missing.

Book seller Charley is caught in a maze of books, murder and betrayal. To stay one step ahead of the

law, she must betray two friends in order to protect her employees Boris and Lon, which happen to be
two ogres who have a magical connection to Charley are at the center of a maelstrom involving

murder and magic.

Char’s story is based on her experiences at her family’s used bookstore The Hickory Cottage Book

Exchange located in a small town in Louisiana. The inspiration for her story came from a tale she told
children who misbehaved in her bookstore. In this book the “tale” comes to life in the two main

characters of two eight foot tall Ogres who work and live in the attic of the bookstore.

The characters in her story are based on her imagination and past customers who supported her book

store through the years. Certain names have been changed to protect the innocent. Fans of Char’s

blog and radio show Charred Remains will recognize certain names as the story unfolds. Ogres of the

Hickory Cottage is the first in a planned serial from the author.

Char has been an indie horror reviewer for the past four years. Her passion for the horror genre and

all things indie led to her being published in the 2012 anthology Dark Light published by Crushing

Hearts and Black Butterflies and again in the 2013 follow up Dark Light 2 anthology.

Her serial can be categorized as urban fantasy with hints of mystery and horror. In her world humans

co-exist with ogres, witches, ghosts, demons, tree spirits and other things that go bump in the night

and blend in the daytime.
