News and Media


The second book in the Tunerville trilogy, titled Confluence, is off to the editor! Boomkaart Books is planning on a 2021 release. Follow us on social media to stay updated as events progress.


A Message from the Publisher

Due to a recent change WordPress made to their paid account functions, Boomkaart Books can no longer offer a direct download when you purchase The Shiny Folk and other stories through our website.

We are a one-person operation. An upgrade to an account plan that allows direct sales is not possible financially at this time.

This is a disappointment. However, we do not want to compromise on customer service by forcing you to wait until we can manually email your book, which was the only option WordPress could offer us.

To keep the book available, we have decided to move distribution over to Amazon as a Kindle e-book. See the Books page for the updated product link.

We also had to raise the price to $2.99 to compensate for the loss of direct revenue. With that in mind, we have redesigned the cover and added three additional stories, including a brand-new dystopian tale, “MathLex.” (EDIT: A paperback version is now available for $5.99.)

We understand if you don’t want to purchase books from Amazon. We will hasten to let you know when we can offer The Shiny Folk or other books directly through the website. Please follow us on Twitter and Instagram for updates, news, and special offers on books.

Thank you so much for your patronage.

– A. Elizabeth West, Publisher


Additional content for The Shiny Folk is in a beta read. We hope to have the third (and last) edition soon. You didn’t miss anything with edition 2; it was just a cover change.

Elizabeth is also working on Book 2 of the Tunerville trilogy, tentatively titled Confluence. Meanwhile, if you haven’t read Tunerville yet, get it here!
