Announcing Spindle City Serials: Weekly Episodes from Book Smugglers Publishing

These are the serial episodes you’ve been looking for…

Today, we celebrate the publication of The Case of the Little Bloody Slipper by Carlie St. George, the first in a series of three novelettes following private detective Jimmy Prince, and the seven deadly dames who run Spindle City.


We are also delighted to unveil the Spindle City Serials–a brand new way to get your fix of Jimmy and Jack every week as they take on the nefarious characters who work Spindle’s dark underbelly.

Here’s how it works:

  • Subscribe to the Spindle City Serials list by signing up using the link below.
  • A subscription costs $4.99 (you’ll be taken to PayPal), and in return you will receive early, serialized episode-sized chunks of the next two books in the Spindle City series (each chunk being roughly 1/3 of the next full Spindle City Mystery, or around 4,000 words) delivered to your inbox every Monday morning.
  • At the end of each story arc (2 arcs of 3 episodes each), you’ll receive a DRM-free ebook of the full story–with extras, like case files, essays, and two exclusive-to-the-ebook bonus short stories from Jack’s point of view–at no additional cost to you.
  • PLUS, when you subscribe, you’ll receive an ebook copy of The Case of the Little Bloody Slipper (Spindle City Mystery #1), on us, immediately.

You can sign up at any time–if you decide to sign up now, awesome. If you want to wait it out, that’s fine too! Upon signup, you’ll receive your ebook edition of The Case of the Little Bloody Slipper, the most recent episode, and all the episodes you’ve missed in the past (if subscribing after 11/9).

Of course, if you prefer not to subscribe, you can still get your fix of Jimmy Prince and Spindle City for free on The Book Smugglers (or by buying the ebooks)–you’ll just have to wait until publication day!
