The PLOT GENIE Index
by Wycliffe A. Hill

First in the PLOT GENIE (TM) series!

THIS is the fabled tome that inspired Gillian Conoley's novel The Plot Genie. You've heard the tall tales about this book -- Now it's time to write tall tales of your own!

The book lists hundreds of locales, characters, dramatic situations, and plot twists. When used in conjunction with the Plot Robot (TM), a cardboard spinner wheel imprinted with "random" numbers, the author promised it would generate enough ideas to keep an author writing for years.

The Plot Genie has been out-of-print for decades, and has been commanding high prices on the rare book market. Now you can own it for a fraction of the cost of an original. Don't worry -- If Wycliffe A. Hill's claims are reliable, you'll immediately make back the cost by writing best-selling fiction!

Watch for the PLOT GENIE supplements:
#1: "Romance" (February 2015)
#2: "Action-Adventure" (March 2015)
#3: "Detective-Mystery (May 2015)
#4: "Comedy" (July 2015)
#5: "Short-Short Story" (August 2015) and
#6: "True Confession" (October 2015)

NOTE: The "Plot Robot" is NOT included with the book. It was a separate cardboard wheel enclosed with each book purchase direct from the original publisher. Bold Venture Press may make the wheel available for purchase -- but in the meantime, you can download your own "Plot Robot" in PDF format. Once you print it, all you'll need is a scissors and paper fastener.

Awesome Tales #1
Fall 2014

A new publication featuring stories in all genres -- and also featuring classic characters in exciting new stories! In the "Pretenders to the Throne," the sultry DOMINO LADY battles a supernatural menace threatening London. In her civilian identity, the lovely Ellen Patrick, on behalf on the Roberts Commission, appraises stolen artworks stolen by the Nazis -- but after-hours, as the DOMINO LADY she plays a cat-and-mouse game with a gentleman thief who is in over his head. Nazis, witches, and that pulp-style of excitement that author Rich Harvey specializes in. This is a rollicking tale that brings together the pulp femme fatale and Wicca Girl, co-author R. Allen Leider's 900-year old witch turned MI6 agent. Face it, this yarn has everything!

In addition to the 15,000 word lead feature, this issue also features two spine-tingling back-up stories. "Seven Pictures" by Jean-Marie Ward deals with murder and hubris at the Pentagon, while "The Warlock Murders" confronts Druscilla (a.k.a. Wicca Girl) with an unsolved 300-year old mystery.

New illustrations by Ed Coutts, including a dynamic cover painting featuring the Domino Lady. 56 pages of thrills and suspense, all for a miserly $6.00 cover price.
